The world’s first Ferrari- branded theme park, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi is all set to launch two new exciting experiences: the Roof Walk and Zip Line from November 5th onwards. The first-of-their-kind experiences on Yas Island are held in honor of the park’s 10th anniversary.

The Roof Walk experience will offer the guests an opportunity to scale the Park’s red roof and take in an eye-catching panoramic view of Yas Island. While Zip Line lets the visitors race from the middle of Ferrari World Abu Dhabi through the Flying Aces roller coaster loop.

The interesting part is that visitors can gear up for a racing challenge with friends or family to win the first-of-its-kind dare on Yas Island.

The launch of these enthralling experiences is hosted to commemorate a decade of the Ferrari World’s existence and the park has also organized various entertainment programs to bring back-to-back fun for its guests.

The anniversary day began with a grand opening of the Park along with dance performances, a live DJ who roused the event with the latest tracks and hosted a trivia session with various prizes. Live art demonstration was another interesting program, as the Park’s artists created a wide variety of Ferrari-inspired crafts.
