Added attractions
Many attractions await the visitor to Abu Dhabi. On
Yas Island, the much-talked-about Ferrari World is the

largest indoor theme park, some of the rides are not for

fastest rollercoaster – but with more than 20 rides and
attractions beneath the huge iconic red roof inspired by
the double curve side profile of the Ferrari GT body, there
is something to appeal to everyone. If you’re not looking
for a mad adrenalin rush there is plenty of opportunity for
shopping, a diverse range of wonderful eateries and the
fascinating interactive Ferrari Gallery.
