Covering over 1.5 million square feet, IMG Worlds Adventure is the world's largest indoor theme park offering all-year-round entertainment in a temperature controlled environment. It contains four zones, 28 original food and beverage offerings, 25 retail outlets, and a 12-screen state-of-the-art Novo Cinema multiplex with IMAX screen and two VIP theatres.
The four zones are: Marvel, Cartoon Network, Lost Valley – Dinosaur Adventure, and IMG Boulevard. In total, there are more than 20 rides for families to enjoy. Let's take a look at the zones one-by-one:
There are five rides here focusing on different heroes like The Hulk, Spider-Man, and Thor, but the thing that you'll most likely hear the most about is the Avengers: Battle of Ultron
ride. It is a stereoscopic 3D multimedia experience that features the whole gang: Iron Man, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Captain America, and the Hulk.
Lost Valley – Dinosaur Adventure Zone
The zone has been developed uniquely for IMG Worlds of Adventure and is home to over 69 animatronic dinosaurs. It is also the largest of the four zones and is the only one that includes an external element – a roller coaster that propels you at 100km/h in 2.5 seconds, and is the tallest and fastest rollercoaster in Dubai.
Cartoon Network Zone
Leave your children here and hit up the Ben 10
5D cinema, which sits up to 1,200 visitors an hour. Along for the ride are Cartoon Network brands LazyTown
, Adventure Time
, The Powerpuff Girls
, and The Amazing World of Gumball
IMG Boulevard Zone
Here is where you'll find the less adventurous lot – at the retail and dining sections. The Boulevard also features live entertainment and other interactive experiences.

Where do I stay?
Well you're in luck. The Haunted Hotel in IMG Worlds of Adventure just opened its crypt. Just... adjust your expectations. It's not called 'haunted' for nothing.
