New Flyying Aces to deliver adrenaline-fueled experience for roller coaster lovers

Ferrari World Abu Dhabi unveils new ride

ABU DHABI, February 28, 2016

Ferrari World Abu Dhabi has launched ‘Flying Aces’ a new roller coaster ride designed to deliver a unique, adrenaline-fueled experience for roller coaster lovers and thrill seekers alike.

The new ride was unveiled at an exclusive launch event last week attended by Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak, chairman of Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority, and Mohamed Abdulla Al Zaabi, CEO of Miral Asset Management (Miral). More than 100 esteemed guests and an official delegation from various embassies also attended the launch.

Commenting on the launch of Flying Aces, Jesse Vargas, general manager at Ferrari World Abu Dhabi said: “Following the introduction of two new attractions in 2015, we are starting 2016 with the biggest ride unveiling since our grand opening, with the launch of the incredible, record-breaking roller coaster, Flying Aces. This coaster will surprise guests with never-before experienced thrills and it further cements Ferrari World Abu Dhabi’s reputation as a pioneer in the region’s leisure and entertainment industry. A theme park evolution on this scale is unheard of and we are so proud to bring even more fun to one of Abu Dhabi’s premier leisure destinations, Yas Island.”

Flying Aces will allow thrill-seekers to enjoy a gravity defying experience on-board the ride. The record breaking ride, with the world’s tallest loop at 52 meters and steepest and fastest cable lift incline at 51 degrees, employed the most innovative technologies during its construction.

“When guests visit the park, they will get a sense of the evolution taking place under our iconic red roof. The unprecedented expansion, marking a breakthrough in the theme park industry, will not only amaze guests with more thrilling and exciting attractions, but will also promise them incomparable fun and family-friendly entertainment,” added Vargas.
 
The bi-plane themed roller coaster is an exhilarating 135 second journey that reaches a speed of 120kmph along a 1.5km track. The ride mimics extreme gravity-defying flight acrobatics (including a non-inverted loop), rapid twists and turns and plenty of nail-biting moments.

At the launch event, guests witnessed a live action-packed show as a Ferrari California T took to the road and went head-to-head with a XIII SPAD bi-plane along Yas Island Leisure Drive. The celebration then moved to the sky where the plane’s aerobatic skills were showcased.

The launch of Flying Aces kick-starts a phenomenal year for Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, as it gets set to reveal a series of unmatchable new rides and attractions for guests of all ages. – TradeArabia News Service
