If you’d like an aspiring F1 driver in the family, this is the place to get them started. Junior GT starts with an educational film for the little ones, followed by some training from the experts. Then it’s time for them to get behind the wheel and drive a fun-sized 430 GT Spider.


Ferraris aren’t simply vehicles, they’re works of art in themselves. So, take a look around the art gallery, with a superb collection of classic and contemporary Ferraris. There are some extremely rare models here, and you can find out some fascinating facts and stats as you stroll through.

Take a 4D journey with Nello, a pesky Ferrari driver. He’s going to take you on an incredible ride through some jaw-dropping scenery. You’ll dive into oceans, fly over cliffs and plunge into ice caves, with simulator technology adding to the experience so you feel truly immersed in every environment.


If you like the ups and downs of the rollercoaster then this one is pretty special. In fact, no other rollercoaster on the planet goes this high. You’ll climb an incredible 63 metres (207 feet) in a military bi-plane and hit speeds of up to 120km (75 miles) per hour. Flying Aces is not for the faint-hearted.


Even a Ferrari can’t go this fast. Formula Rossa sends you hurtling off at a record-breaking speed, reaching 240km (149 miles) per hour in just 4.9 seconds. You’ll be strapped in and wear goggles too – you’ll need them as you’ll be experiencing a G-force of 4.8Gs.
