Largest indoor theme park- Ferrari World sets world record
ABU DHABI, UAE--Ferrari World, located near the emirate's Yas Marina racing circuit, is spread over 86,000 square metres (925,696 square feet), while its massive red roof covers 200,000 square metres (2.15 million square feet) - setting the new world record for the Largest indoor theme park.
Built high above Abu Dhabi's Formula One track, the ride aims to accurately recreate the sensation of driving a Formula one car, with drops and turns that generate 1.7 G's, pinning people down into its 16 seats. (enlarge photo)
Using the same technology that propels fighter planes from warships, it accelerates into the burning desert from 0 to 100kph in two seconds flat; and takes less than 90 seconds to travel its full length of 1.28 miles.
The previous Guinness World Record holder for the Fastest roller-coaster was Kingda Ka, a roller coaster located at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, New Jersey, USA; his train is launched by a hydraulic launch mechanism to 128 miles per hour (206 km/h) in 3.5 seconds.
Guinness World Records also recognized the steepest roller coaster made from steel - the "Mumbo Jumbo" at Flamingo Land Theme Park and Zoo, in Malton (UK), measuring over 30 m (98 ft) tall, and able to impose just under 4 G of force on your body. The new World's Largest Indoor Theme Park is part of Abu Dhabi's multi-billion-dollar effort to develop Yas Island. The emirate also plans to open branches of the Louvre and Guggenheim museums on nearby Saadiyat Island.
Abu Dhabi, the largest and richest of the seven emirates making up the United Arab Emirates, has launched an ambitious development plan to 2030 to modernize and diversify its economy away from oil.
