Plans Unveiled for New Ferrari Land, Coming to Spain in 2016

Ezekiel Wheeler

Following the 2010 opening of Abu Dhabi’s Ferrari World theme park, the Italian carmaker has announced its plans for a similar attraction, Ferrari Land, just outside of Barcelona, Spain. Through a partnership with the area’s popular PortAventura theme park and the park’s parent company, Investindustrial, Ferrari Land will be located on a more than 18-acre lot within PortAventura. The new section of the park will feature Ferrari-themed roller coasters, driving experiences and simulators, and other thrill rides, including what is expected to be Europe’s highest and fastest vertical accelerator—a sort of reverse bungee-jump apparatus that slings riders hundreds of feet into the air. The park will also include a 250-room Ferrari-themed hotel, as well as restaurants and other exhibits related to the Prancing Horse. Completion of the park is expected to cost upwards of $138 million. It is slated to open in 2016. (www.portaventura.co.uk)
