These are the first pictures from inside Ferrari World – the biggest indoor theme park on earth – where thrill-seekers ride giant rollercoasters sitting in the marque’s supercars.

Ferrari World Abu Dhabi is due to open later this year on a sprawling 111 acre site in the mega-rich Gulf state of the United Arab Emirates.

It will feature 20 rides and attractions – including the world’s fastest rollercoaster, the F1, which will reach speeds of 125mph.

On Thursday developers released the first pictures of the park’s GT Rollercoaster, which features two replica Ferrari F430 Spiders racing each other on parallel tracks.

The 1km ride will feature ‘launch sections’ to simulate racing starts and the cars will overtake each other to determine a winner at the end.

Ferrari World Abu Dhabi is enclosed under a stunning 21-acre domed red steel roof which was modelled on the double curve shape of the Ferrari GT.

It is adorned with the world’s biggest-ever Ferrari logo at 65m long.

The theme park will be the centrepiece of Yas Island, a 6,000 acre leisure park island which is currently under construction.

A spokeswoman for Ferrari World said: ”The Park will pay tribute to the passion, performance and technical innovation Ferrari has established.

”It will be an intense multi-sensory experience and a must-visit for enthusiasts, fans and families.”

Yas Island is owned by Aldar Properties PJSC, one of Abu Dhabi’s leading property development investment companies, which is ploughing £40billion into the project.
