Disney might be the happiest place on the planet, but it better make way for another awesome theme park.
Abu Dhabi’s Ferrari World has only gone and scooped the world’s best theme park award, beating its rival Disney.
World Travel Awards (WTA), also known as the Oscars of the travel industry, unveiled the park which won this year’s title.
It’s the first time that the “world’s leading theme park” award is given to Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, which had previously won accolade for the Middle Eastern region.
Ferrari World is known as the first Ferrari-branded theme park in the world and is home to the fastest rollercoaster ever.
Formula Rossa accelerates from zero to 150mph in just five seconds, with riders experiencing a G-force of 4.8.
And this ride is so extreme, that thrill-seekers even have to wear goggles to enjoy the coaster.
That’s not the only car-themed rollercoaster ride in the theme park, Ferrari World is also home to Flying Aces, Turbo Track and Fiorano GT Challenge.
Smaller kids can also enjoy the park as well, with playgrounds and cinema rides.
For adults, the highlight will be the luxury of driving a Ferrari in real life.
