From December 1st to 3rd, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi will host a double anniversary celebration with an exciting three-day spectacle combining UAE-themed family entertainment, spectacular parades, interactive shows and festive giveaways, in addition to the enduring thrill of the Park’s 20 Ferrari-inspired rides and attractions.
“Having our 1st anniversary coincide with such an important milestone for the UAE is in a way symbolic of the role the Park itself plays in the capital’s long-term vision. We’re very proud to be part of that, ” said Andy Keeling, Park Manager of Ferrari World Abu Dhabi.
In celebration of its 1st anniversary and commemorating 40 years of the UAE, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi will hold a daily raffle, with 40 Annual Passes and a trip for two to Italy up for grabs every day during the event.
UAE residents will enjoy a special AED 40 discount on the ticket price for 40 days upon presenting proof of residency at Ferrari World Abu Dhabi’s ticket counters, starting from November 15th and until December 24th.
The three-day festivities will bring a host of additional exciting activities for families including UAE-inspired shows and a heritage village showcasing authentic Emirati arts and crafts. Daily parades in celebration of the two anniversaries will weave their way through the Park, culminating in a grand parade before closing hours every day.
Visitors will also be entertained by the line-up of daily performances of Ferrari World Abu Dhabi’s La Gara show – which charts an F1 race from start to finish in a 30-minute extravaganza complete with gymnasts, dancers, stunt skippers, skaters and acrobats, in addition to the fun-filled shows at La Piazza. An interactive kids’ zone offering fun and creative ways to keep the Park’s youngest guests entertained with puppets and craft projects will add to Ferrari World Abu Dhabi’s host of rides and multi-sensory attractions which have been designed to appeal to the entire family.
The Park will maintain its new opening hours during the anniversary celebrations, from 11 AM to 8 PM.
