Can I drive a Ferrari at Ferrari World Abu Dhabi?Absolutely! Depending on how brave you feel and how much money you want to spend, there are lots of different ways to get behind the wheel at Ferrari World. You can try a virtual experience when you take the Scuderia Challenge, test your real life skills on a small track at the Karting Academy, or take a spin in a full-size Ferrari as either a passenger or the driver! The driving experience costs extra (AED 795 for drivers, AED 495 to ride along as a passenger with a professional driver) and if you want to drive yourself then you’ll need to prove that you can legally drive in the UAE. You can also try your hand at being part of the pit stop crew in the Tyre Change experience.
Should we bring lunch or can we eat there?You aren’t allowed to bring food from outside, but there are plenty of food options within the park! Featuring a range of cuisines, from Italian (of course) to Arabic and Indian. If you can’t find anything there that tempts your palate, then don’t worry! The theme park is right next door to the Yas Mall, which has a wider range of options. Just ask the staff to stamp your hand, grab a bite to eat, and then come back and continue your day in the park.
How long will a trip to Ferrari World take?It depends. If you want to see everything thoroughly, and maybe ride your favorite rides more than once, then you can easily spend 6 to 7 hours there. If you’re going to stick to the biggest rides before moving onto another of the parks on Yas Island then you can see most things in 4 to 5 hours.
What else is there to do on Yas Island?Yas Island is specially designed to provide entertainment for people of all ages, there’s something there for everyone! It’s home to Yas Circuit, a Formula 1 race track (which a number of the rides at Ferrari World are based on), plus a golf course, Yas Waterworld, Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi, and SeaWorld Abu Dhabi. Tickets to Ferrari World Abu Dhabi can be bought as part of a combo ticket with Yas Waterworld or Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi, so you can spend half your day at each park or dedicate a whole day to exploring each one.
