Kimi Räikkönen visits Ferrari Land
Kimi Räikkönen enjoyed an innovative and adrenaline fuelled experience at brand new Ferrari Land theme park and didn’t miss the opportunity to ride Red Force, the highest vertical accelerator in Europe
Kimi Räikkönen, Scuderia Ferrari driver, paid his first ever visit to Ferrari Land; the only European theme park dedicated to the legendary Italian automotive brand. The Finnish driver enjoyed and explored the record-breaking attractions at Ferrari Land, the latest park to open at PortAventura World.
Scuderia Ferrari development driver Marc Gené hosted Kimi Räikkönen on his tour of Ferrari Land. In addition, both drivers were able to experience the vertical accelerator Red Force: the highest and fastest roller coaster in Europe and a symbol of speed, technology and innovation.
Before returning to training for the Catalunya Formula 1 Grand Prix, Kimi Räikkönen left a signed racing suit that will be added to the incredible collection of artefacts on display in Ferrari Land.
The park is one of the top family destinations in Europe. It hosts 11 attractions for the whole family: Ferrari Experience which includes Racing Legends and Flying Dreams; the park’s two immersive attractions. Europe’s tallest and fastest rollercoaster Red Force and the Thrill Towers crown the skyline of PortAventura and Ferrari Land also features attractions where visitors can put their driving skills to the test such as the semi-professional simulators of Pole Position Challenge, the Maranello Grand Race racing circuit and Pit Stop Record – an activity that challenges budding mechanics to change all four wheels of a full-scale Formula 1 car.
To complete the experience, visitors can enjoy Ristorante Cavallino, a traditional Italian trattoria inspired by the restaurant in Maranello (Ferrari headquarters); a themed Fast Food restaurant, Pit Lane; and delicious Italian ice cream parlours like Ice Cream Box. What’s more, the Ferrari Land Store stocks a selection of the most exclusive official branded merchandise.
