“We are excited to partner with Ferrari to develop a truly unique midway attraction concept,” said Phil Higgins, co-founder and chief creative officer at Katapult.

“We have worked extensively to distill the brand’s tradition, innovation, passion and luxury, to create an authentic and scalable experience for Ferrari fans around the world to enjoy.”

Meanwhile, Legoland California Resort and Ferrari have teamed up to announce the world’s first interactive ‘Build and Race’ attraction, scheduled to debut in spring 2022.

“We are excited to build upon our existing relationship with the Lego Group by combining our leading brands within this transformative entertainment attraction,” said Rochfort.

Katapult has also designed and launched a new experience for Legoland theme parks across the globe, in collaboration with the Lego Group and Merlin Entertainments.

Earlier this month, Simworx announced the opening of its latest attraction, the Masameer Experience at the Boulevard RUH City development in Saudi Arabia.
