Ferrari World Abu Dhabi prepares for Canadian Grand Prix

Ferrari World Abu Dhabi prepares for Canadian Grand Prix

Ferrari World Abu Dhabi will undoubtedly claim the title of the coolest family destination this month, as it celebrates all things Canadian to coincide with the broadcast of the Grand Prix weekend live from Montreal.

The world’s largest and first indoor Ferrari theme park will welcome Canadian Mounties in their distinctive red and black uniforms as they will tower over the crowds on stilts.

They will be on hand throughout the three-day Canadian Grand Prix Celebration from June 10th-12th, while a tribute to Canada’s popular singing sensation, Justin Bieber, will take the stage several times throughout the weekend to regale teens in between rides on the park’s exciting attractions.

F1 fans will be able to catch all the racing action live on screens throughout the Park – including the UAE’s biggest High-Definition screen at Cinema Maranello – while kids are entertained at the Arts & Crafts area.

“When it comes to watching events such as the Formula One Grand Prix, it’s the atmosphere that makes the race really come alive,” said Andy Keeling, park manager of Ferrari World Abu Dhabi.

“At Ferrari World Abu Dhabi themed entertainment and a spectacular racing-inspired venue will come together to deliver a lively viewing experience, making the Park’s Canadian Grand Prix Celebration the best venue in the UAE from which to enjoy the Montreal leg of the F1 season.”

Proud Canadian nationals will be treated to a special discounted admission rate of AED165 during the entire weekend celebrations on showing proof of identity.
