New Ferrari World ride details emerge WORLD


A NEW children’s ride, Carousel, has been installed in the heart of the Ferrari World venue in Abu Dhabi. Carousel is the brainchild of students from four of the world’s best automotive design schools.


The merry-go-round ride will see children and families enjoy a simulated automotive experience, complete with moving brake paddles, accelerators and horns. Andy Keeling, Ferrari World park manager, said: “Carousel is a family-friendly attraction which will


give adults and children the unique opportunity to experience Ferrari prototypes and replicas in an updated version of the authentic fairground merry-go-round.” Ferrari World, the world’s largest indoor theme park, was due to open to the public on October 28. “We are on schedule to open the park with a wide selection of rides and attractions,”


commented Claus Frimand, general manager of Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, speaking shortly before the scheduled date. “We have managed to turn one of the world’s most exclusive brands into an extraordinary experience which families and fans will come back for time and time again.”
