Ferrari announced plans to open Ferrari Land, a sports car–themed attraction within Spain’s PortAventura theme park.
Boasting five rides, including Europe’s tallest roller coaster, Ferrari Land promises to draw interest from gearheads and amusement park enthusiasts alike. Rides include the 368-foot Vertical Accelerator; the Bounce-Back Tower, designed to mimic engine pistons; and a 1,900-foot test track with a fleet of miniature Ferrari cars. You’ll never look at go-karts the same way.
The park itself is modeled after a small Italian village, in keeping with Ferrari’s heritage, and will be jam-packed with display model Berlinettas, Californias, Speciales, Italias, and Spiders—and even a few Formula One cars. When visitors are taking a break from rides (or getting themselves revved up for them), they can tour a reproduction of Ferrari’s Maranello factory production line to see how each car is assembled.
Opening this park is a great idea for a couple of reasons. One, Ferraris are awesome. Two, it’s a more convenient destination for visitors who can’t travel to Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi, which promises to have 43 rides available to the public by 2018.
Ferrari Land opens to the public in April 2017, so there’s still time to grab tickets.
