Theme park’s extended operation will build on the growing demand for continuous entertainment on Yas IslandFerrari World Abu Dhabi returned to ATM for the third year running announcing plans to move to a seven-day operational model later this year.
The world’s largest indoor and only Ferrari-branded themed park arrived all revved up to showcase to the regional and global travel industry the unique leisure offering it adds to the UAE’s premiere leisure hotspot, Yas Island.
“There’s been a growing demand for a continuous entertainment offering and the appeal of Yas Island as a leisure destination is now even higher,” said Andy Keeling, Park Manager, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi.
“With its combination of two mega theme parks, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi, a wide range of excellent hotels, a world-class golf course, a racing circuit and a concert arena hosting world class musical events, Yas Island has really upped its entertainment portfolio.
“To meet this growing demand, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi – which normally closes on Mondays - will be open every day starting in the fourth quarter of 2013, making us a 365-day-a-year operation. We are sure that visitors, as well as representatives from the travel industry, will find this an even better proposition that takes our proven success story further,” Keeling said.
Keeling added that the Park will be expanding its workforce to meet the requirements of the new opening schedules later in the year. “Ferrari World Abu Dhabi is the first theme park of its magnitude in the region and has opened up career opportunities in this sector for a large number of professionals,” Keeling said. “This is a great opportunity for skilled manpower in operational fields to join our family of 700 employees and be part of a winning team like no other.”
