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 52m and steepest and fastest cable lift incline at 51 degrees.
Mohamed Al Zaabi, CEO of Miral Asset Management described the new attraction as ‘an architectural masterpiece’ and said the gravity-defying coaster would offer guests a ‘one-of-a-kind’ experience.
He was joined at the special launch event by HE 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 120kmph along a 1.5km track. The ride has been designed to mimic extreme gravity-defying flight acrobatics (including a non-inverted loop), rapid twists and turns.
“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, ” commented Jesse Vargas, General Manager at Ferrari World Abu Dhabi. “When guests visit the park, they will get a sense of the evolution taking place under our iconic red roof.”
“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, ” added Al Zaabi.
