A Ferrari Theme Park scheduled to be opened in October will not be open to the public until after Nov. 4, according to park officials in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
The opening was postponed due to the death of Sheikh Saqr bin Mohammed al-Qassimi, who died Wednesday at 92.
The amusement park features a number of roller-coaster thrill rides, one of which reaches a velocity of 150 mph, doing its best to immitate the extreme Gs experienced by Formula 1 race car pilots.
The facility is built under a bright-red canopy covering more than 925,000 square feet, with an enormous Ferrari logo emblazoned on the roof. The park commemorates the Abu Dhabi Formula 1 Grand Prix, the last event of the 2010 world championship series.
UAE officials hope the park will help spur tourism to the region.
