UPDATE: Ferrari World public opening cancelled

Ferrari World’s public opening on Wednesday evening has been postponed following the death of His Highness Sheikh Saqr Al Qasimi, the ruler of Ras Al Khaimah.

The Abu Dhabi theme park will open to the media as planned, but will postpone its official opening to the public, a source said.

Ferrari World, the world's largest indoor theme park, had been expecting up to 10,000 people on its first day of opening.

Official mourning has been declared with effect from Wednesday, to mark Sheilkh Saqr's death. For seven days, flags across the UAE will be flown at half mast and government ministries and institutions will be closed.
