Visit to Ferrari World

We paid our first visit to Ferrari World today, mainly because of a 2 for 1 offer, so it was half price. We came away with mixed feelings really. As an adult the experience isn't all that thrilling if you have been to other theme parks around the world. The one exception to that statement is the Formula Rossa ride which is fab! More about that later.

If you visit the park as a family with kids, I think you could have a good day out. There are lots of rides and experiences for children to have. If you have teenage kids, I would think it would be less interesting. there are only 4 "thrill rides", one of which you have to pay extra for and one that was closed today (V12).

Having said all of that - the Formula Rossa ride is, for me, worth the ticket price alone! The exhilaration that comes from the way it bursts out of the "starting grid" is amazing. You can hardly breath as it shoots it's way to top speed and climbs the first incline. It's only a matter of seconds (0-240kmph and up 52Mtrs in less than 5 seconds), but it feels like ages - you just need it to end so you can breath again! It's a great ride and should be on any 'coaster fan's list.

Here's a link to some piccies and my video clip of the Forumula Rossa
