The spirit of Ferrari Land is a tribute to excellent Italian artistic heritage and also to the genius of Enzo Ferrari. This is represented in the iconic cars, fast speed, technology and innovation of the Ferrari Land, opening April 7 in PortAventura. About an hour southwest of Barcelona, the park will feature five rides based on the sports car brand when it opens next door to the PortAventura theme park.
Ferrari Experience will be the heart of Ferrari Land. This is where families can immerse themselves in two Ferrari worlds, GT and Formula One and experience two internationally renowned, technological and innovative attractions. The Vertical Accelerator, the highest and fastest rollercoaster in Europe, at 112 metres high and reaching 180 km/hour in just 5 seconds, will be perfect for speed lovers. Next to it, there will be Ferrari Land Gallery, an interactive journey through the glorious history of the Ferrari legend; a racetrack; a free fall tower and a bounce-back tower; Formula 1 simulators for adults and children; a pit stop; a speedway that will allow children to experience a miniature F1 race car and last but not least a play area for the youngest members of the family.
At the park’s central hub, visitors have an unique opportunity to see a reproduction of the automotive production line at Ferrari’s factory located back in Maranello, Italy. The imposing building will be wrapped in facades designed to replicate Venice’s Piazza San Marco, Rome’s Colosseum and a Ferrari’s car hood.
The new park will have a great selection of food outlets where visitors can enjoy delicious and authentic Italian dishes. From the traditional Italian Trattoria, inspired by the restaurant of Maranello (the home of Ferrari), visitors can immerse themselves in the story of the Prancing Horse brand; a themed Fast Food restaurant inspired by the legend of Ferrari drivers. The outlets will serve classic recipes as well as traditional Italian ice cream.
Visitors will be able to access Ferrari Land from PortAventura for an upcharge fee, with visitors granted either daytime or nighttime admission to the new land.
