PortAventura Shows Off New Ferrari Land Images and Details

© PortAventura
Spain's PortAventura Theme Park has announced the official opening date of their new Ferrari Land park, which will be in 2017.  As part of the announcement, the park was given a new website as well, which shows off the attractions and features it will offer visitors.

The interactive website gives a lot of new details of the park, but this video (also just released) does the same:

The star attraction of Ferrari Land, for many at least, will be a new Intamin launched roller coaster, designed much like Kingda Ka at Six Flags Great Adventure and Top Thrill Dragster at Cedar Point.  The ride will stand 368 feet tall and feature a launch at 112 miles per hour - it will be the 5th tallest roller coaster in the world when it opens, and the 4th fastest.

Other attractions that are featured include a pair of shot towers that stand around 180 feet tall, elaborate go-karts that fit with the Ferrari theme, driving simulators, and food, beverage and retail options that are all Italian themed.
