Recently, Ferrari World has released an image of the roller coaster cars for Emotion Coaster, a Ferrari F340 Spider themed, twin tracked racing coaster.
The twin tracks of Emotion Cooaster will be fairly unbanked like a road would be. (You don’t find many roads banked at 45 degrees.) The result will be an awesome experience full of lateral G forces and fun Ferrari action. The tracks have a few strategically placed LSM boosters so that the two trains will constantly pass and overtake each other for a truly exciting racing experience.
Ferrari World is scheduled to open sometime in late 2010. As with almost everything Dubai does, this park will be breaking some records. Ferrari World will be the largest indoor theme park in the world when it opens. It also will feature the fastest roller coaster in the world, F1.
The park claims (about F1), “…the coaster is capable of 150 miles per hour, but may be operated at lower speeds.” This can be taken two ways: A. The coaster will be a record breaker or... B. The coaster will follow the same path as Ring Racer and not fulfill the claims that were originally made (and consequently let us down).
Ferrari World will feature about 20 rides including the F1 coaster. Other attractions include: A flume ride through a massive Ferrari engine, a 203 foot tall drop tower ride in the center of the park, racing simulators, a 4D theater, a double tracked LSM launched racing coaster, several go cart tracks, and an aerial simulation ride similar to Walt Disney World’s Soarin’ where riders trail a Ferrari through Italy. Ferrari World will also house several places to shop and dine as well as driving schools for junior drivers and training for experts.
