In a few months time, the rich and famous of our world will have their own automotive ‘Disney Land’ with the opening of the new Ferrari World Theme Park in Abu Dhabi. Among the twenty or so rides and attractions featured at the park will be the GT Roller Coaster and this here is the first photograph of the car.
The GT roller coaster is one of 20 amazing rides and attraction at this amazing theme park. Every vehicle on this GT coaster ride is a replica of a Ferrari F430 Spider that can seat up to four people. According to Ferrari the GT coaster will send two competing roller coaster carriages dashing along twisting parallel tracks on a race to the finish line.
It is the second of two roller coasters that will anchor the amusement park. The other is billed as the world’s fastest roller coaster, with a speed of up to 125 mph and shooting passengers more than 62 m through the roof and back down again to offer them a G-force experience that is intended to simulate the feeling of driving a Ferrari F1 racing car.
Ferrari World Theme Park is being built on over 135 acres of land and is scheduled to open in the second half of the 2010 in Yas Island, Abu Dhabi. The Ferrari GT theme is not only carried on via the roller coaster, but also in the roof of the enclosed theme park. The roof is inspired by the “classic double-curve side profile” of the Ferrari GT.
