I know, I told some of the management that they really should focus and market how amazing their food is! They did start offering certain packages where you could come in just for like dinner and two hours of rides and stuff. If anyone heads to the park...go hungry and plan to eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner there!

I may have made this comment on a previous report or twitter or something, but as great as this place looks all of the pictures of it seem so dark. Does it feel more vibrant in real life? Still looks amazing, just kinds dark in photos (which I guess works pretty well for the dino themed section).

That kitchen tour looked awesome, behind the scenes stuff is always so interesting that I almost wish that was an actual attraction or up-charge tour experience!

The Avengers ride looks great--good mix of physical sets and digital projection.

I've always wondered why an indoor park of this size hasn't been attempted in the states (especially in a market that the elements can be a problem, like Florida). It looks like they've done incredible things with the Marvel brand and it is so cool to see a Falcon's Treehouse CircuMotion Theater actually installed in a park with a such a great IP! Thank you for such an excellent report on this place--I'm not sure when or if I'll ever get out to the UAE myself, so I live vicariously through these reports. I'm eager to see IMG Worlds succeed, especially knowing they plan to expand with a second adjacent park.


This kind of place (Probably in a much smaller building) would be great in NYC where the weather isn't so great.

I've found it weird that NYC/NJ only really has Coney Island, SFGadV, and small Jersey Shore parks--yet they have such a massive population and number of tourists/major media companies.

C'mon Disney, build a Marvel thing in NY! :mickey:

I don't think it felt 'dark'. Sure it wasn't bright and crazy, but nothing like depressing or off-putting. It was really nice visiting a park in the middle of the desert and not worry about sun screen, the heat, wind, etc.

I am very curious about the Hulk motion theater. Any chance you took any footage of the ride in action? And I have to ask, any chance you took any footage of the guts of the ride in action under the platform? I would love to see some of that theme park porn if'n you did. :p :lover: :p

No to both, sorry. Wasn't allowed.

Yeah, I mean, I never felt like anything inside the park didn't "pop" or feel darker than it should. I mean, the park IS 'indoors' without much natural light (if any) so the park is lit basically like you're at a park at night time, which, IMO most parks look better at night anyway...

Great update! I'm not really into comics or Marvel movies but it doesn't seem like that would matter much. This place looks amazing (mainly because of the food). The Superman coaster also looks incredibly fun.

That's cool. I figured as much, but if'n you did, it woulda been hella cool to see it in action, as you always know the best angles to capture great theme park porn.
