“Don't bother - Nice building, shame about whats inside”
Reviewed 7 January 2011

Got lost on way there following direction on website. Says Yas East or West, when there are different. Then 'Yas Leisure Drive' seems to include every road on the island!

Best thing about the place was the ease of parking - a rariety in the UAE. From there is was downhill. Long queues, expensive and limited food. An embarassment to the Ferrari Brand.

“What a disappointment - total waste of time and money”
Reviewed 6 January 2011

Visited on Jan 4th. It's a 1 hr drive from Dubai and costs around US$60 per person to get in. The two main attractions (high speed roller coaster and G-Force) weren't operational, so if you are into high adrenalin there isn't much else to do if these aren't working. We went on the V-12 and Made in Maranello rides and the video and audio on both rides wasn't working properly (only sections of the ride were working). The wind tunnels in the play area were also faulty. We did the Fiorano GT Challenge roller Coaster which BTW was awesome. We left after 2 hours really disappointed. I filled in the survey at one of the kiosks and also immediately emailed Customer Services at Ferrari World expressing my disappointment and to date have not heard a word. Clearly customer satisfaction not high on their agenda.

“The cool rides were closed!”
Reviewed 6 January 2011

I can't rate the theme park itself since we actually ended up NOT going in. First mistake was to go here on a Monday - when it was closed. On the second attempt on a Tuesday, we came here around 3 pm and were hoping for an amusing evening at the theme park. Once in line we soon discovered that the 2 coolest rides; Formula Rossa and G-force were closed! So, we browsed quickly through the souvenir shop and went home.

“A waste of time”
Reviewed 5 January 2011

I agree with the other reviews, we got to the park before the 12 oclock opening to see very slow lines to buy tickets, once I got to the window I found out why, the people had to explain how many rides were closed that day, basically all the main ones, but as we had travelled to get there we went in. The people at the differant attractions were so unorganised it took twice as long to make anything start, compared to anywhere else in the world and there were not many people here at 12 noon. Crowds started to arrive about 1pm so the lines were very slow and this was on a work day, so I would hate to visit on a weekend or public holiday. My only advice if you go, is to get there to go in at noon, go on what ever rides you want (that are working which will not be many) and leave, this is not a place you can spend a day at unless it is waiting in long lines.

“Worst Theme park I've ever been to”
Reviewed 5 January 2011

Extremely disappointing. Waste of time and money.
Queues are awful. The wait for formula rossa was more than 2 hours. Gforce was closed.
We stayed from 1PM to 7PM, we managed 2 decent rides.
Don't go there, unless you like to torture yourself.
