F1 Weekend, Ferrari Land Theme Park in Spain


This is the 1st Ferrari theme park and resort in Europe and the 2nd in the world after Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and this weekend is celebrating it 1st Grand Prix weekend.

Spain’s Ferrari Land is just 1 hour outside of Barcelona, covering about 20 acres, in addition to rides, the resort has 5 hotels, 3 golf courses, and a beach club.

The 11 park attractions include a ride that are meant to emulate the experience of a Formula 1 race car driver.

Red Force reaches speeds of 112 mph within 5 seconds, which makes the ride the tallest and fastest roller coaster in Europe.

While those speeds are impressive they are still slower than the version of the ride at Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi. That one reaches speeds of 149 mph

PortAventura’s development manager Luis Carlos Valencia said that building the ride had “been an operation of almost surgical precision, only possible under optimal wind conditions.”

General Manager Fernando Aldecoa says the park “attracts a foreign clientele that comes mostly from France, the UK and Russia and that appreciates the family-friendly nature of our offering. The partnership with Ferrari (NYSE:RACE) allow us to grow in northern Europe and Italy.”
