In 2010, the park announced that it was ready to open and that it would include 20 rides and attractions for all ages of the family. Some of the first attractions included theaters that were in 3D which would show the story of Ferrari and its classics. There was a Ferrari Gallery that was the largest one of its kind and exhibits showcasing the Italian cityscapes. With an amusement park, there were many rides as well. Guests can enjoy rides such as G-Force which is a tower launcher that launches guests 168 feet up and out of the building. The park has two roller coasters. Fiorano GT Challenge is a Dual Launching coaster manufactured by Mauer Sohne. If you can’t get enough of this speed coaster, the most famous attraction inside the park is definitely Formula Rossa. This coaster is a hydraulically launched coaster that reaches speed of up to 149 mph. This makes the coaster the fastest in the world. The coaster was designed and built by Intamin.
