Ferrari Land, Europe’s first and the world’s second amusement park themed around the iconic Italian sports car manufacturer, opened today. The main attraction of Ferrari Land is Red Force, a 367 foot (112m) tall Intamin LSM launch coaster that goes from 0-112 mph (180 km/h) in just 5 seconds. In addition to Europe’s tallest and fastest coaster, the park features twin 180 foot (55m) tall S&S Shot & Drop towers, a large go kart track, racing simulators, as well as recreations of Venice’s Piazza San Marco and the Colosseum in Rome.
The new $1.1 million (€1 million) theme park is part of PortAventura World, yet separate from the adjacent PortAventura Park. So guests can purchase tickets for one park or both, similar to the two Disney parks in Anaheim, California and the Universal parks in Orlando, Florida.
The first amusement park themed to the Italian auto giant was Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi, which opened in 2010.
