BREAKING: Massive new theme park announced for Dubai
Another, yes that’s right, another theme park is opening in Dubai! It might seem like IMG Worlds of Adventures has just launched, but the company has just announced at a press conference that they will be opening a second indoor theme park right beside the first one.
IMG Worlds of Legends, as it will be called, is going to be so big that it will take the crown as the world’s largest indoor theme park. There will be nine zones covering over two million square ft, with 102,000 square ft of retail space and 104,000 square ft of food and beverage space.
The park is going to be open 365 days per year. We know what you’re thinking… it’s not ideal to be indoors during the cooler months of the year. Well, they’ve thought of that, and this park will have a retractable roof, giving you the best of both worlds.
In a first for IMG Worlds, there will be water based attractions as well as roller-coasters and interactive rides. Zones include Legends of Arabia, Pokemon, Matel, Nickelodeon and Lost Valley.
“We are extremely excited about growing our proposition in the near future and we see a great opportunity in the Dubai market,” Lennard Otto said at a press conference. “We have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to move into becoming a legend. I’m very proud right now to reveal IMG Worlds latest project called IMG Worlds of Legends. This is the world’s newest largest indoor theme park, opening in Dubai adjacent to IMG Worlds of Adventures.”
“With IMG Worlds of Adventure and IMG Worlds of Legends collaborating together, it creates one of the world’s largest IP branded theme parks today. […] It’s going to be phenomenal,” he added.
At two million square feet, this new park will take the title as the world’s largest indoor theme park from IMG Worlds of Adventure, which launched earlier this year at 1.5 million square feet.
This news comes at a time when Dubai is going into theme park overdrive, with the imminent launch of Dubai Parks and Resorts, which comprises of multiple parks including Bollywood Dubai and Motiongate.
