The check in thing was fine. We had a silver ticket - which has fast passes - but due to there being almost no one there; were never needed!
3 rides are at an extra costs - this includes the actual driving of a Ferrari ($250+) and the karting - which also needs to be prebooked. So prep needed.
The place is fairly big and all indoor except for the few times you’re flung out or up on the rides.
The faux Italian sets and styling is weird and tacky. Italy is more sophisticated than this mess.
Of the four main rides only three were working. The ‘fastest’ rollercoaster in the world was broken ALL day. That was really disappointing and seems to be a regular thing.
The TurboTrack ride up the middle of the dome lasts 10secs. Literally.
The Flying Aces ride is as the name suggests, plane based (I’m not familiar with Ferrari’s planes?!). But it’s the best (working) one.
The staff were generally good and attentive but there’s not enough of them to manage even the meagre crowds and they never were able to answer a query correctly (where do we collect tickets, is a ride operating etc).
There’s no where enough to do for even half a day. The ‘kids’ rides are pretty awful and make no narrative sense. Disney has nothing to worry about!
Also there are barely any real Ferrari’s (for obvious reasons!) - just as well as no one seemed to understand the DO NOT TOUCH signs and no staff attempt to stop the mauling of the ‘model’ cars...

Its really expensive and the driver experience costs extra, but it was awesome. The go Karts are the best

Like everything in the UAE except cigarettes and petrol, this experience is quite expensive.

Formula Rossa was excellent and was worth a second trip once the hideous queues had subsided. It was a novelty to have all the air pushed out of your lungs by the sheer g-forces involved.

Flying Aces was also a great ride and pretty vicious. Also worth a second ride.

Turbo Track was not worth the 40 minute queue. The ride lasted about 15 seconds.

The rather slow looking go-karts cost extra so we didn't do that.

Fiorano GT challenge was good, mostly due to the short queues.

Viaggio in Italia was awful. It was basically a long blurry car advert with some tree smell pumped into the room whenever there was a tree in shot.

Speed of Magic was a bit weird. For all the hard work they put into the animation, they should have got a good script writer.

Benno's Great Race was ok but also weird. Better for kids I would say.

Overall, there is a shortage of large rides but those that they do have are pretty good fun.

Worth a visit if you're in the area and don't want to take all your money home. Also good if you like cars. Some were real!

A great day enjoying everything Ferrari - excellent trill seeking rides, short queues, well organised but do not try and take your own food as they will take it off you and have a limited understanding of food allergies (Gluten free traveller).

This theme park is indoors and access is via Yas Mall.
We went on all the family rides and watched all the shows. We didn’t go on the thrill rides as my child was not the specified height.
We did pay for quick pass but there were hardly any queues so I think that was a waste of money.

Will come again when my child is older.
