Ferrari World Abu Dhabi has launched ‘Coaster Lab’, an edutainment programme for schools that will last all year.

The Coaster Lab initiative is designed to teach students about engineering, physics and technology through the lens of rollercoasters. The aim of the project is to encourage a love of science by engaging participants in the analysis of rollercoasters in a fun and memorable way.

The programme is tailored to students at primary and middle schools. Pupils will also have the opportunity to participate in constructing their own replicas of rides and learn about the science behind rollercoasters.

Attendees visiting Ferrari World Abu Dhabi will also be able to enjoy going on the theme park’s rides and attractions, including Formula Rossa, the fastest rollercoaster in the world, which travels at a staggering 149mph.

The Coaster Lab project is one of a number of innovative activities scheduled for the theme park as it approaches its tenth birthday in November.



The award-winning Ferrari World Abu Dhabi theme park is introducing several exciting new attractions in celebration of its tenth anniversary later this year. The new attractions include a Zip Line and a Roof Walk experience.

A new dedicated Family Zone is also set to open in March and will include four state-of-the-art miniature versions of the park’s most iconic attractions including the Turbo Tower, Speedway Race, Flying Wings and a Formula Rossa Junior. The zone will feature a track with twists and turns as well as a diverse collection of thrilling rides and experiences for the whole family to enjoy, including small children.

The Roof Walk experience will involve guests scaling the park’s iconic red roof, with the Zip Line attraction stretching for an impressive 400 metres long.

Ferrari World Abu Dhabi’s General Manager, Bianca Sammut, said of the new attractions: “2020 is already shaping up to be a big year for the park with the much-anticipated countdown to our 10-year anniversary celebrations this November. It brings me great pride to welcome family attractions and new experiences that continue to provide entertainment for our guests.”

Sammut also revealed that the park’s award-winning Italian restaurant, Mamma Rossella, has just introduced a special kids’ menu.

These new attractions join the ranks of the world’s fastest rollercoaster, Formula Rossa, and the record-breaking rollercoaster, Flying Aces, in making Ferrari World Abu Dhabi one of the most exciting theme parks in the world. Other racing-related thrills the park offers include Benno’s Great Race, the Karting Academy and the Fiorano GT Challenge.
