Ferrari World Abu Dhabi opens record-breaking Flying Aces coaster

Ferrari World Abu Dhabi opens record-breaking Flying Aces coaster
February 26, 2016

Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, currently the world's largest indoor theme park, is celebrating the opening of its brand new record-breaking roller coaster, Flying Aces.

Featuring state-of-the-art technology, the ride boasts the world’s tallest loop at 52 metres and steepest and fastest cable lift incline at 51 metres.

Describing the new attraction as ‘an architectural masterpiece’, Mohamed Al Zaabi, Chief Executive of Miral Asset Management, said the gravity-defying coaster would offer guests a ‘one-of-a-kind’ experience.

Al Zaabi was joined at a special launch event this week Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak, Chairman of Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority where they were treated to a demonstration of aerial stunts performed by a XIII SPAD bi-plane.

The bi-plane themed roller coaster promises a 135-second thrill ride journey that reaches 120 kmph along a 1.5 kilometre long track. The ride has been designed to mimic extreme gravity-defying flight acrobatics (including a non-inverted loop), rapid twists and turns.

Ferrari World Abu Dhabi General Manager Jesse Vargas commented “this coaster will surprise guests with never-before experienced thrills and it further cements Ferrari World Abu Dhabi’s reputation as a pioneer in the region’s leisure and entertainment industry.

“When guests visit the park, they will get a sense of the evolution taking place under our iconic red roof.”

Ferrari World Abu Dhabi is one of Yas Island’s principal attractions.

Commenting on the area’s success, Al Zaabi stated “last year, over 25 million visitors came to Yas Island, and with this new ride which forms a part of our larger expansion plans over the course of 2016, we look forward to welcoming many more people to what is a world-class leisure and entertainment destination.”
