Would you visit Ferrari World Abu Dhabi?
Written by Robert Niles
It's been a huge year for theme park openings so far, and it's just going to continue this fall, with the debut of Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi this October.Tweet
The park this week announced its complete attraction line-up, following its earlier announcement of the record-setting Formula Rossa roller coaster. I've updated our Ferrari World Abu Dhabi page, as a result, so that you can take a look at the 18 planned rides and attractions.

Which brings me to my question for you: Is there any way that you'd ever even consider a visit to this theme park?
First, there's the question of visiting Abu Dhabi. (It's a city in the United Arab Emirates, just up the road from Dubai, in case you didn't know.) A quick search on Orbitz shows round-trip airfares from Chicago to Abu Dhabi, including taxes, running around $1,100, for a flight this fall around the time of the grand opening. From London, though, fares run from around US$500, so perhaps some of our European readers might like to delurk for this discussion.
After all that, though, if you could afford and would be disposed to consider this destination, does this park entice you, as well? I'd love to hear your reactions, in the comments, to this park, this concept and this destination.
