Abu Dhabi Ferrari World Theme Park

Template:Infobox amusement park Ferrari World is a Ferrari themed amusement park on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi.[1] The central park is situated under a Template:Convert/m2[2] roof making it the largest indoor amusement park in the world.[3] Ferrari World officially opened on 4 November 2010.[4] The theme park is home to Formula Rossa, the world's fastest roller coaster.[5]

OverviewEdit

The iconic roof of Ferrari World was designed by Benoy Architects.[6] It is modelled after the side profile of a Ferrari GT. Ramboll provided the structural engineering, masterplanning and urban design, geotechnical engineering and the façade engineering.[7] The roof has a total surface area of Template:Convert/m2 with a perimeter of Template:Convert/m. The theme park, measuring Template:Convert/m2, is located under this Template:Convert/m high roof. These factors make Ferrari World the largest indoor theme park in the world.[1]

A Ferrari logo adorns the roof of the building and measures Template:Convert/m by Template:Convert/m—the largest Ferrari logo ever created.[3][8] 12,370 tonnes of steel has been used to support this roof.[1] The centre of the roof is marked by a 100 m (328 ft) glazed funnel.[6] The structure was declared complete on 29 October 2009 with the park due to open one year later.[1][9]
