The next couple of updates will have to be done in parts because there is just so much to talk about!
This was our first visit to IMG Worlds of Adventure in Dubai, and while we had seen quite a lot about this park online, we weren't *exactly* too sure what to expect in person, and let me just say that we were all completely blown away by our visit to the park!
IMG Worlds is billed as the "World's Largest Indoor Theme Park" and I can most certainly believe that both in terms of space inside the building and high detail level of theming. The themed areas are very interesting as this park has a "Marvel Comics" themed land, which apparently the deal for this land was done BEFORE Disney bought the rights to Marvel. That being said the area was VERY well done and some of the rides were even on par with Disney attractions, but more on that later.
Anyway, as you read through the next couple of reports just think "World's Largest Indoor Theme Park" and "lots of super cool stuff!"
Here we are!!! We have arrived at IMG Worlds of Adventure in Dubai! The World's Largest Indoor Theme Park!
Upon entering the park, you can tell the place has a very "clean" feel to it. We like this. It makes the park feel a bit more upscale.
The lighting and sign package everywhere was really impressive!
As was the decoration around the park! It was great being in here before anyone else as I love getting these pics without any crowds!
We took a quick lap around the just to check out some of the themed areas. This haunted house was a lot of fun!
The "Lost Valley" area was a really great dinosaur themed land!
Yep, lots of dinos! lol
Here's a quick look at the Marvel section, but we'll get back to this later.
Tony Stark's Avengers tower! (It's actually a restaurant with AMAZING steaks!)
The Thor ride is a themed top spin...but like the rest of the Marvel area, we'll get back to this...
This morning we'll start out in the Lost Valley area and do some filming on Predator, the park's Eurofighter roller coaster.
Yes, even in Dinosaur times, they still drank Mountain Dew! (What do you think REALLY killed off the dinos?) :P
Time to ride! Are you guys ready?
Take a front seat ride on Predator!
Looks like everyone had a good time!
We wandered back up to the front so the park could officially open now!
After a cute little song and dance by the park's opening team, IMG World's was officially open!
Hey look! Gumball from the Amazing World of Gumball came out to say hello!
Kristen is a huge fan of the show so of course this made her VERY happy!
Next up with the Spider-Man spinning coaster!
While we know the park is all indoors, this ride was sort of "indoors and outdoors" in the sense that it never goes "outside the building" but it goes outside of it's "show building" and out into the midway areas.
This is a GREAT RIDE!!! Quite possibly my favorite (or really up there) of all the spinning coasters I've ridden!
The queue is very well themed...
And as you move along the ride you'll see some familiar characters!
Check out a full POV of this awesome coaster!
The entire ride looks great!
The entire area looked great! Some of the Marvel stuff reminded us of what you'd see at a Universal park, some of it more like Disney. It was an interesting mix, but we liked it all!
Very cool. I'm always impressed by everything in Dubai--it seems like all the tourist places try to outdo each other, and the competition pays off for guests. That Air Race theme is great! I'm not normally a fan of spinning or flipping rides, but those Air Races really are great. Looking forward to the Marvel update!
