Ticketing - Ferrari Abu Dhabi



In the mid-2000s, Aldar Properties and Ferrari investors worked together to create the theme park as a marketing and instructional project. A successful collaboration developed since its inception between Mubadala Development and the Italian furniture producer Poltrona Frau Group. Fascinatingly, this brand’s furnishings can be seen throughout the Ferrari headquarters in Maranello.

The place opened up in 2010 and was the first-ever Ferrari theme park in the world. It was a joint project between Ferrari and the Abu Dhabi Investment Fund, aiming to create a unique spot where people could fully experience the thrill, style, and excellence of the Ferrari brand.

Back in 2007, a “time capsule” was buried with parts of the championship car’s engine as part of the park’s foundation. It’s planned to dig it up in 2047 during Ferrari’s 100th anniversary celebration.

Key Facts

Located close to the capital of the United Arab Emirates, the Ferrari World Abu Dhabi complex, usually referred to as Ferrari World, is the globe’s most extensive indoor theme park dedicated solely to the Ferrari brand.

Covering more than 86,000 square meters, it is about the size of seven football fields. Situated on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, it is surrounded by other infrastructural buildings, including the Yas Hotel, that are all connected by the themes of speed, racing, and cutting-edge technology.

Ramboll oversaw extensive territory planning and carried out geological studies as the initiative’s leader. The building’s architecture is shaped like a three-pointed star, and it has slides, games, an auditorium, shops, restaurants, and offices. The unique, bright red metal-coated top was designed by Benoy to resemble the lines of a Ferrari GT.

The 62-meter G-Force tower, an attraction, is located at the center of the roof’s curved funnel-shaped structure, which falls to ground level and is divided from the rest of the building by a glass barrier.

With a weight of almost 6,500 tons, the enormous steel dome is the biggest structure of its sort in the world. This dome creates a special indoor area for attractions and displays while shielding visitors from the heat and sand.

With over 40 rides and entertainment options, the park has several popular attractions that are worth seeing. Formula Rossa, the fastest rollercoaster in the world, is one of the most well-known. The ride gives racers the impression of wind rushing through their hair and an adrenaline rush as they may reach speeds of up to 240 km/h.

How To Reach

Having trouble getting to Ferrari World Abu Dhabi? These are the ways that we suggest getting around:

  • By Car: Driving from Dubai to Abu Dhabi is easy; just stay on the Sheikh Zayed Expressway and pay attention to the road signs. It takes around 25 minutes to get to Yas Island from Abu Dhabi by car. There are free parking spots available as well as the valet parking service (for 42 AED).
  • By Shuttle Bus: Complimentary Yas Express buses go around Abu Dhabi, offering a ride to Yas Mall, which is where the park is situated. The complimentary minibus service from Sheraton (Mall of Emirates) may also be used; it leaves at 11:00 AM local time and takes 90 minutes to reach Yas Mall, Abu Dhabi (which is next to Ferrari World). The Mall of Emirates station has the same name as the mall, making it easy to connect to the Dubai Metro. 7:30 PM will see the same shuttle service bus leave the Yas Mall gate. Note that there is a first-come, first-served rule for the shuttle service. See this page for comprehensive schedules.
  • By Bus: Select the busses marked E100, E101, and E102 if you plan to depart from Dubai. With a ticket price of just 25 AED, this is an affordable option. Bus 190 from Abu Dhabi’s main bus station (at the intersection of Hazza bin Zayed the First St. and East Rd.) will take you straight to the entrance.
  • By Taxi: For smooth travel to your location, use the RTA Taxi or Abu Dhabi Taxi App.

  • Please be aware that some rides could be closed for temporary maintenance. Check the official website first.
  • We suggest that you schedule between four to six hours for your visit and that you think about purchasing a multi-day Yas ticket so that you may visit additional parks on later days.
  • Wearing comfortable shoes and clothes is advised for having spent time there since there will be a lot of walking. Bring warm clothes with you as sometimes it is a bit cold inside. Take closed shoes for kids as it is the admission rule for some experiences.
  • Weekdays are the best times to visit the park to avoid long lines for rides because Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays are usually the busiest. When the park opens, which is between 10:00 and 11:00 AM, you may arrive early to enjoy the attractions without having to wait in line for a long period. By the afternoon, lines usually extend to an hour.
