News & Rumors



Abu Dhabi, UAE
Official Website


Park News - (2/9/18) According to BlooLoop, an agreement with the Abu Dhabi government has been signed with SkyTran to build a unique overhead rail system that in the first phase would connect Ferrari World to the new Warner Bros World theme parks by 2020. This will be a direct connection between the two attractions where riders sit inside enclosed four-person pods. Future phases will connect to other nearby attractions, hotels and even the Abu Dhabi International Airport. (2022 UPDATE - Current Status Unknown...)


2023 - Mission Ferrari (SFX Coaster) - (4/8/23) Forbes has posted a new article about the lengthy development of the Mission Ferrari attraction at Ferrari World Abu Dhabi. First announced way back in 2014, the Dynamic Attractions SFX coaster took until early 2023 to finally open to the public. The article goes on the describe not only the attraction, but how many of the various and unique special effects features were designed individually and then merged together to form the massive attraction experience. This itself was a cause for much of the delay as each element had unique design element issues that each needed to be solved in the field.
    (3/5/2023) You can find a great detailed description of the ride experience of Ferrari World’s new Mission Ferrari attraction posted to Blooloop this week. The article goes into some detail about the technology used to create this SFX ride experience that is part launched roller coaster, part dark ride, part 4D theater, featuring two world’s first elements: including the first sideways drop track.
    (1/19/2023) For those wanting to see what all takes place on the new Mission Ferrari ride at Ferrari World, check out the video below to see a complete POV of the entire experience. Some sections are too dark to see, and there appear to be some edits, but this gives you a general idea of what the new adventure ride is all about.

    (1/15/2023) While video footage released of the actual experience is fairly limited, I’m overjoyed to see the long-in-development Mission Ferrari attraction finally open to guests at Ferrari World Abu Dhabi. According to the early reports, riders are set off on a mission to deliver a special custom Ferrari created for secret missions to an top secret international spy headquarters hidden deep underground below the Ferrari factory in Maranello, Italy. The majority of the ride experience is said to be indoors, and quite confusing to say the least, as the 10 passengers never know quite which direction the car is going to move next due to the extensive set of trick-track elements along the way, including the world’s first sideways drop on a coaster. One report claimed the experience was about 4 minutes long, so you are going to get a good experience from this as you pass by the various themed elements, projections screens and of course fly out into the section of travel viewable from outside the ride that contains an inversion.

    (12/22/2022) Would  you believe that the time has finally come for Mission: Ferrari to finally open at Ferrari World Abu Dhabi? According to a post on Facebook the long awaited ride at Ferrari World that has been under construction since at least 2014 will FINALLY open to guests on January 12th, 2023! The unique SFX coaster concept should provide some unique thrills never before experienced on any other ride, including ‘the world’s first sideways coaster drop.”
    If you are a local and have an annual pass, passholder preview rides will begin starting Jan. 5th, so your wait is almost over!

    (1/30/21) While we know this isn’t the first time Ferrari World has tested their long in development Mission Ferrari (SFX coaster) attraction, these tests are normally done whe nthe park is closed to guests. That changed this week as a guest caught the new attraction testing while the park was open and caught it on video. Perhaps 2021 will be the year the attraction is finally ready to open to guests.

    (1/6/20) According to what I’m hearing, the “Mission Ferrari” SFX Coaster attraction at Ferrari World Abu Dhabi is expected to finally open sometime in 2020. As with all things, nothing is confirmed until the park itself has been able to announce and confirm the opening date for the attraction.
    (8/29/18) Good news for the Ferrari World theme park, as it looks as if the long-in-development Mission Ferrari SFX coaster project is now being tested. Photos of the exposed section of track visible in the park now show wheel markings that would normally indicate some kind of early testing is taking place, though likely after hours and well out of sight of the park guests. Follow the link to see some of the latest photos of the ride and entrance area taken last week. Still no word from the park on an official opening date just yet.
    (2/14/18) A couple of fun Tweets came out a few hours ago showing off the outside track portion of Mission Ferrari at Ferrari World, along with the message that they were told the new ride was expected to finally open in May. This was followed by a few more pictures taken after dark, where they could see into the indoor portion of the ride which was lit up and viewable through the mesh-covering.

    (11/24/16) Due to a request from Ferrari World, I was asked to remove the three photos posted in the March 23rd update showing off the construction of the Mission Ferrari SFX coaster project interior, shot by a park guest from a public space when the door to the area was left open. Sorry.
    (5/5/16) A new construction update from Ferrari World can be found at, and while it starts off with a look at the park's new cute dark ride, Benno's Great Race, you've got to scroll down to check out the pictures of the park's new SFX coaster under construction that is now expected to open in 2017.
    (3/23/16) A reader visiting Ferrari World this week noticed the work doors on Mission Ferrari, the park's new SFX Coaster attraction, were left wide briefly and took the opportunity to grab three quick pictures. The track inside has not been completed yet, though there is quite a bit of it all twisting around in there, including a vertical loop inversion. Combined with the exposed track inversion we've seen before, we know there are at least two inversions.

    (5/7/15) The description on RCDB for the park's SFX Coaster lists a number of LSM launch moments, 3D screens, a drop track, tilt track and possibly inversions during the new indoor/outdoor attraction from Dynamic Attractions.
    (12/30/14) VHCoasters have posted some very interesting photos this week, showing off the track under construction for the new Dynamic Attractions SFX Coaster ride coming to Ferrari World. The track is really unlike anything I’ve ever seen before, featuring almost Intamin like flat track sections mounted to a Triangle shaped spine-box. They also have a peek at what appears to be a possible layout for this coaster, which will feature some interesting track switch elements and an inversion or two.
