Where's the Bumper Cars?

In a move that is bound to bring Fred an enormous amount of joy, it has been announced that Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi is finally open to the public.  Sitting right next to the official F1 circuit on Yas island is the largest indoor amusement park in the world.

There are a variety of driving and racing themed activities available to you. G-Force, which will accelerate you straight up and let you experience 3.8G.  Or to give you a sensation of what it's like to drive in an F1 car, there's Formula Rossa.  It's basically a roller coaster that accelerates you from 0-100 km/h in 2 seconds, makes turns of up to 70°, and reaches speeds of 240 km/h all on a track just over 2 kilometers*.  I have to admit, that sounds pretty fun.

There are also plenty of activities for the kiddies, and even more opportunities to spend you're hard earned ducats on officially licensed Ferrari gear. So make your way to the UAE, with $60 in hand and you too can enjoy the Disney-ized version of Ferrari.

*For the full Ferrari F1 experience, press the button on your fake steering wheel to hear Rob Smedley tell you that you need to let the car behind you pass.
