On a serious note, i was assuming this would be more or less like a museum/motorsports complex or something like that.
Didn't expect to see a prancing horse roller coaster.
All the rides could carry names of various ferrari models eh.
Ofcourse, there'll be Ferrari museum, infact the largest Ferrari museum outside of Italy. But that is in addition to the roller coaster, rides, etc.

WOW !
This is a place to visit, 200kmph on the roller coaster is bound to give me a good shake up to last a while.
The pictures are stunning, the sheer scale of the structure is breathtaking.
Will need plentiful of moolah for some of the Ferrari memorabilia.

My friend went there during the Abudhabi race weekend but didn't enter due to time constraints. Said they still have some technical issues to get sorted and everything is not operational at all times. I'll scan and upload the brochure once I lay my hands on it (probably early next month).
If I remember correctly, the entry is somewhere around Rs.1.5-2k which includes unlimited rides.

I am going to Dubai on 31st of this month and is it possible to visit the Ferrari Theme Park on Dubai visa. How far is this place from Dubai and what would be the best mode of transport to visit this place. Please suggest.

It would take about 2 hours from Dubai. A taxi would cost 200-250 Dirhams and would be the easiest way to get there. The weather is good this time of the year.

If you don't want to spent money on taxi, take Dubai-abudhabi bus(20 dirhams), i believe it also goes there or get down somewhere near ferrari world, then take a cab (max 20 dirhams)

ticket price is 235 dirhams + 85 dirhams extra for F-1\F430 simulator

Park opens at 11 and once you are inside park ensure that you go first to roaller coaster Formula rossa(literally run!!!),otherwise you will end up standing in a queue for 30 minutes and also don't miss the front seat, it's going to give you maximum fun!!

Rest all rides are average,only other rides i liked are 4D fantasy ride and the simulator

Don't fancy buying anything as all items are having exorbitant prices,was looking for a nice scale model but nothing less than 1000 dirhams

been there twice in past 3 months as Ferrari world had an offer for employees of the firm i'm working for.Only 25 dirhams and you can take 3 of your friends also at same rate

Adding some pics from last visit

Formula Rossa
