Experience the ultimate state-of-the-art racing simulations. If you’ve ever dreamed of challenging the professionals behind the wheel, this is your chance. Let’s see what you’re really made of. Similar to the simulators used by the Scuderia drivers in training, Scuderia Challenge offers a level of realism far beyond an arcade game, with a full body immersion into the racing experience.
Fiorano GT Challenge
The GT coasters are revving their engines and ready to race. Challenge your friends, jump into a Ferrari F430 Spider and may the best team win. Two competing GT coasters launch away from the starting line on twisting parallel tracks, based on real GT race courses from around the world. As you reach speeds of 95 km/h, watch out for the hairpin turns then tear ahead through the straight-aways.
Speed of Magic
Follow the adventures of a young boy as he travels through 4-D fantasy dreamscapes and go where no Ferrari has gone before. In one of the world’s most sophisticated simulators you’ll fly along crumbling cliffs, into the heart of the jungle, through ice caves and to the bottom of the ocean, all in the pursuit of ‘Nello’– a mischievous little driver from another world.
Made in Maranello
You’re the VIP, crossing the Ferrari gates in Maranello and into a tour of the historic Ferrari factory, a privilege previously only enjoyed by Ferrari owners. Now you can finally see exactly how a Ferrari is born.
It’s race day, and you have the exclusive Paddock passes to go behind the scenes of a Grand Prix. From the Ferrari team technical trailers to the motor home, when you step into the Paddock you’ll feel like you’re really there. Explore the garage where you can find the real F1 cars, listen in on the strategy debate and see how the race is managed.
Get up close and personal with the ultimate display of Ferrari cars, hailing from Maranello and top collectors from around the world. Wander from 1947 to the present, and immerse yourself in the passion of the race. You can even meet the visionaries, drivers, engineers and artists themselves, as they reveal their side of the Ferrari story, with all the triumphs and tears.
Driving with the Champion
Have you ever dreamed of sitting shotgun with a racing champion? In this motion based simulator, a young engineer gets to do just that and you’ll be right there with him in this cinematic simulation. Step from the GT to the F1, lean into the corners on the Fiorano track and the streets around Maranello.
The driving school for kids is the first component of the Ferrari Driving School. Junior Pilotas get behind the wheel of a scaled-down 430 GT Spide and learn how to keep it safe while still enjoying the fun of driving their very first Ferrari. They’ll get to learn how to navigate stoplights, road signs and hug the roundabouts like a professional.
