Start your engines for Ferrari Land

The countdown has begun for the ultimate petrolhead theme park experience – Ferrari Land.

The official opening of the new PortAventura World attraction in Spain is scheduled for April 7, 2017 and tickets go on sale from December.

Ferrari Land is PortAventura’s own interpretation of the Ferrari legend and each of the Ferrari Land rides is designed to emulate the sensations of the F1 driving experience.


The new theme park will be aimed primarily at families and Ferrari fans of all ages. It will feature adrenaline-fuelled attractions with high levels of innovative technology, including the Vertical Accelerator, a speed-lover’s dream which accelerates at 180 km/hour in just 5 seconds and stands at a height of 112 metres.

In addition to the Accelerator, the new park will also have another seven family attractions such as a racing circuit, two bounce-back free fall towers, F1 simulators for adults and children, and a magnificent Ferrari Experience, a surprise yet to be revealed.

Next to these, visitors will find many different restaurants, shops and shows. PortAventura World Parks & Resort already boasts three theme parks in one location as well as 2,100 rooms across five themed hotels and a wide range of restaurants and shows aimed at families.

Ferrari Land is the largest project and single investment in the history of PortAventura.


Ferrari test driver Marc Gené added: “Attractions like the vertical accelerator will allow visitors to experience firsthand some of the sensations of driving a Formula 1 racing car.

“It’s a park for all ages, where even the youngest members of the family can discover the legendary spirit of Ferrari”.
