"Ferrari World soon to welcome visitors"

Back in the pre-recession go-go days, virtually every major theme park company (except Disney) and wannabe player had billion-dollar plans for the United Arab Emirates: Universal Studios, Six Flags, Legoland, SeaWorld, Busch Gardens, Warner Bros., DreamWorks and Marvel.

So far, none of those parks has opened for business in the Middle East’s desert oasis playground. But that may change next month.

On Oct. 28, if all goes according to plan, Ferrari World will welcome visitors to what the automobile company claims will be the world’s largest indoor theme park. The park, about 21 acres, is in Abu Dhabi, about an hour from Dubai.
