Star ride at Abu Dhabi's Ferrari themed park unveiled
19 March 2010

These are the first pictures of the Ferrari F430 Spider based rollercoaster that will be the centrepiece of the Ferrari World theme part in Abu Dhabi.

Set to open in the second half of this year, there will be 20 rides and attractions at Ferrari World, including two rollercoasters.

The F430 Spider pictured is from the so-called GT rollercoaster, which is described as a ‘racing coaster’. It sends two 'competing' carriages 'along twisting parallel tracks on a race to the finish line' according to Ferrari.

Just like the Grand National in Blackpool that I used to go on when my parents took me there for a holiday!

Funny how I'd much rather go back to Blackpool than visit Abu Dhabi......

A three way tie up between aston, blackpool and hotpoint is surely just a couple of board meeting s away.

Given that the 'result' of this 'race' is pre-determined, why didn't they model the carriages on the F2002 rather than the F430???

Its not even built yet but its already out of date... why didnt they put a fake 458 shell on it?

Would've been more fun if it had been rival makes, wouldn't it?
