Ferrari has announced plans to build a new theme park inside the PortAventura resort located near Barcelona, Spain.
Set to open its doors sometime in 2016, the new Ferrari Land theme park will cover no less than 75,000 square meters and will include the fastest-accelerating and highest vertical roller-coaster on the continent. In addition, the world’s first Ferrari-themed five-star hotel will be constructed within the PortAventura resort and will have 250 rooms, restaurants as well as a driving simulator.
Ferrari chose this location because PortAventura attracts approximately four million visitors every year, with half of them coming from outside Spain. The entire project will require an overall investment of 100 million euros and will be a follow-up to the Ferrari World theme park in UAE which was opened back in 2010.
Good idea or ruining a luxury brand? What do you think? Let us know below…
Now you can own your own island in the Florida Keys for just $110 million.
Spread across 26 acres, Pumpkin Key is part of the exclusive Ocean Reef Club. The luxury island has it’s own airstrip for private jets and it features the most lavish amenities which includes a tennis court doubling as a helipad.
The position is just perfect, just a 10 minute helicopter flight from Miami’s famous South Beach. The island is spectacular, with endless palm trees which are interspersed with gold cart paths and a dozen property lots where the most stunning homes could be built.
The main home faces west so the owners can enjoy nightly sunsets. The property features a swimming pool, two cottages and an apartment for your boat captain with a private office.
Obviously the activities around the island are fishing, lobster fishing, snorkelling and scuba diving, all just three miles off shore on North America’s only living coral barrier reef.
The price of the island also includes a single-family residence on shore within the Ocean Reef community.
The Wall Street Journal reported that Pumpkin Key was bought in 1973 by George A. Barry III, who made a fortune running a company that manufactured tools. His wife Jane is from the Morton Salt family. But Gale said his records show the last time it was purchased was in 1985, for $810,000.
