Question! And is it worth buying an entrance ticket if Formula Rossa does not work?
This is very subjective, because for some of the tourists visiting Formula Rossa is the main goal, for someone other attractions are interesting.
Our opinion is that there is no point in buying a ticket with the non-working Formula Rossa. The fact is that the other two attractions also have tracks on the street, these are the Flying Aces and the Fiorano GT Challenge. Another attraction Turbo Track can be closed due to wind. As a result, with a strong wind in the park, 4 main attractions will not work at once. In such a situation, buying an entrance ticket makes no sense.
Be sure to check the weather forecast . It is better to go to the Ferrari World park if the wind speed does not exceed 5 m / s.
Of course, if you came by an organized tour, then you'll have to stop by, you will not refuse. But if you come alone, you can go to the nearby water park Yas Waterworld or Yas Mall , or go by local bus to the beach Yas Beach.
To comfortably ride the Formula Rossa, come to the park Ferrari World on weekdays - from Monday to Thursday. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, there is a huge line, people stand for 1-2 hours to ride Formula Rossa at least once. Capacity slides Formula Rossa only 16 people - 4 trailers for 4 people in each.
Recall that in the park Ferrari World are sold "silver" and "gold" tickets, their owners can pass out of turn. On weekends, you can observe an amazing phenomenon - a second line is formed of those who can pass without waiting. The queue of simple "mortals" (with bronze tickets) does not move at all, in this queue you can stand all day.
The restriction on growth is from 1.4 to 1.95 meters.
Does advertising really speak the truth?
True. In advertising they say that the feelings on Formula Rossa are the same as for the pilots of Formula 1. Acceleration in the acceleration of the car F1 reaches 2G, at the attraction Formula Rossa is similar. The F1 car accelerates to 100 km / h in 1.9 seconds, the Formula Rossa accelerates in 2 seconds. Only the speed of the F1 car is higher - up to 340 km / h, the Formula Rossa has only 240.
Not true. In advertising, they say that Formula Rossa trains disperse a hydraulic catapult, similar to those used on aircraft carriers (pictured on the right, click on the photo to enlarge). We are hinted that the sensations will be the same as for the pilot of the aircraft at the start of the aircraft carrier. This is not true.
First, the aircraft catapults use a steam catapult several times more powerful. Declared power catapult at Formula Rossa - 20,800 horsepower, while it is clearly not used in full force. In the aerial catapult model C13-2 (this is installed on aircraft carriers of the US class Nimits) capacity in the operating mode - from 82,000 horsepower.
Formula Rossa trains accelerate in 2 seconds to 100 km / h, and the aircraft on the aircraft carrier accelerates to 200-250 km / h in 2 seconds. Overload at the start of the visitors of Formula Rossa - 1,9G, and the pilot of the aircraft at the start of the aircraft carrier tests 6G. As you can see, the figures are incomparable.
The steam catapult is very dangerous, there have been cases of explosions and fires on these catapults on aircraft carriers. For example, in 1954, a steam catapult exploded on the aircraft carrier Bennington, 103 people were killed, 201 were injured. It is logical that there is no place in the amusement park for the steam catapult. By the way, in the United States, steam catapults have been abandoned, and new magnetic carapults will be installed on the new Gerald Ford class aircraft carriers.
It is doubtful. They write that the track circle Formula Rossa repeats the famous Monza track in Italy. In fact, they have little in common, here at best it is possible to apply the phrase "based on motives."
This fact is questionable purely from logic. Think about it, if the creators of Ferrari World set out to repeat any existing race track, what would they choose? Naturally, the Yas Marina Circus in Abu Dhabi!
