Keeping with the standard of World’s Biggest This and World’s Tallest That, Abu Dhabi is home of the World’s Fastest Roller Coaster in what is, in my opinion, the World’s Best Theme Park: Ferrari World. Please allow me to explain why:
A theme park is only good as it’s theme. What could possibly be more universally appealing to children and adults than Ferrari’s?
Unlike other theme parks of this size, this theme park is completely indoors. This means that all the pesky fresh air and sunlight that plagues most theme parks is removed from the equation.
The interior buildings that house programs like restaurants and smaller attractions are all clad with these interesting fins. Which obviously makes waiting in a line for three and a half hours totally okay, right?
Speaking of restaurants, there are plenty of delicious options to choose from. I actually have nothing special to add about the restaurants. As far as theme parks go, the food is pretty standard.
The massive scale of the building is an impressive attraction in itself. After standing in a room filled with a mix of different BO’s and successfully defending your place in line from the European family who thinks it is okay to cut in front of you in line if you don’t notice, you’re going to want a break. Go outside and take a look around.
Take a moment to enjoy nature. Lucky for you, there is a fence to keep you from running away.
The central core and structure are some of the more interesting attractions. Especially because they are the only attractions that don’t have a line that is over an hour long.
If ever you are bored of the rides, there is a lovely museum that houses some of Ferrari’s past and present models. Be sure to take lots of pictures here. Everyone else is! Besides, it isn’t like every Sheikh and his male relatives are driving them around the city, right?
In all seriousness, I don’t recommend this place. If you have to ride the World’s Fastest Roller coaster or you love Ferrari cars, then perhaps you will enjoy this experience. If you are a sane person who enjoys pleasant theme parks with polite staff and less… um… pungent guests, then I suggest you avoid Ferrari World. The very MOST I recommend you do is walk into the main atrium and visit the gift shop. Then, without purchasing a ticket or entering the park, turn around and face the direction you came in. Then run.
I could say much, MUCH more, but I have too much school work to do.
I must now read myself to sleep or death, whichever comes first.
