The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is set to break another world record with Ferrari World Abu Dhabi’s latest roller coaster ride.
The attraction, called Flying Aces, was revealed at the Arabian Travel Market (ATM) this week.
“There are very few theme parks that have undertaken such a significant expansion as Ferrari World Abu Dhabi. Its [Flying Aces] design and storyline are deeply rooted in the rich history of Ferrari,” said Jesse Vargas (below), general manager of Ferrari World Abu Dhabi.
Although Ferrari World already houses the world’s fastest roller coaster, its newest addition is a faster, as well as steeper, steel version.
It features a 51 degree inclined hill and a 52 metre loop, making it the world’s tallest.
According to the park, the new experience was inspired by Italy’s “ace of aces” Count Francesco Baracca.
Baracca was a 1900’s Italian aviator from whom Enzo Ferrari inherited the Prancing Horse logo.
With Flying Aces, Ferrari expects to attract not only UAE residents, but also visitors from around the globe.
The park’s new add-ons also include climbing and free fall jumping at the Junior Training Camp.
