Racing car themed attraction to open every day from Q4 on back of higher customer demand

Ferrari World Abu Dhabi to move to 7-day ops

Ferrari World Abu Dhabi has announced plans to move to a seven-day operational model later this year.

The world's largest indoor and only Ferrari-branded themed park on Yas Island said the move was driven by increase customer demand.

"There's been a growing demand for a continuous entertainment offering and the appeal of Yas Island as a leisure destination is now even higher," said Andy Keeling, park manager, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi.

"To meet this growing demand, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi - which normally closes on Mondays - will be open every day starting in the fourth quarter of 2013, making us a 365-day-a-year operation," he added.

The Ferrari theme park, which opened in 2010, last year added several new rides and attractions and now offers a total of more than 20.

They include state-of-the-art multi-sensory attractions such as Viaggio in Italia and Speed of Magic, Formula Rossa and G-Force.

"With its combination of two mega theme parks, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi, a wide range of excellent hotels, a world-class golf course, a racing circuit and a concert arena hosting world class musical events, Yas Island has really upped its entertainment portfolio," Keeling added.
