BBC News - Ferrari World Abu Dhabi

Posted on July 18th, 2010

Claus Frimand, General Manager of Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, spoke with BBC's Ben Thompson for a brief interview to describe the park and the surrounding entertainment district. When the park opens in late October, it will be the first ever Ferrari brand theme park and the largest indoor theme park in the world. Claus Frimand spoke with confidence in the success of this theme park and states that it is only one part of a bigger master plan set to finish in 2030. The 2030 plan includes new construction of freeways so that it may function as a commercial and residential city, making it an entertainment district. This summer Yas Island will start the building of a water park which will open in 2012. When asked about possible logisitical issues with weather, Claus Frimand stated that even in the desert Ferrari World Abu Dhabi will be able to operate 365 days a year. Everything is indoor with the exception of a few attractions which go outside but load and unload inside the air conditioned building.
