Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi bills itself as the world's largest indoor theme park. Dedicated to the worship and reproduction of all things Ferrari, the park officially opened last month. If you're inclined to go, the Wikipedia says these attractions will be there to amuse you:
Jack Rouse Associates, a Cincinnati based visitor experience design firm, is responsible for the design of most of the park's 20 rides. On July 20, 2010 Ferrari World announced the names of all of the opening day attractions:
