The Ferrari World theme park is located in a three storey building that houses rides, restaurants and shops. It features two rollercoasters that simulate different car races. Boarding stations for the rollercoasters are situated on the third floor plaza level and the tracks travel outside the building.

The first rollercoaster is F1-style and uses a high-powered winch to slingshot the cars. The winch is housed in a protective 40m x 50m steel framed room on the building's concrete slab. The second coaster is GT-style, simulating a two car race. Three concrete frame acceleration/breaking stations have been constructed to house its control gear.

Each coaster has a steel and concrete framed station building consisting of an observation deck, load/unload platform, queue corridor, three storey maintenance structure and overhead gantry crane.

This was a truly international project. The client and architect are based in the USA and ride vendors in Germany and Liechtenstein. Foundations and buildings were engineered by our London team. Integrated services, including underground services, control cabling and high voltage design, were designed by the Edinburgh team, and perimeter and maintenance roads by the Abu Dhabi team.
