Is This Theme Park A Dream Come True For Car-Loving Dads?
If you told me there was a theme park based on cars going fast, I'd hastily reply with two barely-formed sentences - 'take me there!' and, 'I want now!'
For car-loving dads, or fanatic families who are fuelled by fast Ferraris - this looks like a destination worth gearing up for on your next overseas trip!
Like a Hot Wheels fantasy come true, this Ferrari-themed amusement park has got me itching for the thrill of speed. As in, bright red race-themed rides going super, super fast. The sibling of Ferrari World in Dubai, Ferrari land is opening later this year just outside Barcelona.
For the motorheads and Ferrari aficionados, there's loads to check out, including the Ferrari Land Gallery filled with a history of all things Ferrari, a Virtual F1 and Ferrari GT experience, a pit stop simulator; all amidst an Italian-style village setting that the man behind the prancing horse brand, Enzo Ferrari, would be proud of.
As for adrenaline junkies, the vertical accelerator might just hit the spot. Touted as the highest and fastest in Europe, it reaches 180km/h in 5 seconds and reaches a height of 112 metres. Or maybe the ‘Bounce Back’ tower could really get you pumped, where riders are speedily moved up and down a set of giant engine pistons.
If you're ever planning to visit Europe, a pit stop at Ferrari Land is bound to get your heart racing from excitement.
