Ferrari World Abu Dhabi (Arabic: عالم فيراري أبوظبي) is a mostly indoors theme park located on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. It is the world's first Ferrari-themed park and features Formula Rossa, the world's fastest roller coaster.[1]

The foundation stone for the park was laid on 3 November 2007. Developed by Aldar Properties and constructed by BESIX Group subsidiary Six Construct,[2] it took three years to develop the park until it was officially opened to the public on 4 November 2010.[3]

The most recent roller coaster to open is Mission Ferrari, which opened to the public in January 2023.[4]
