IMG announces plans for second Dubai theme park
POSTED 07 Dec 2016 . BY Tom Anstey
The Ilyas & Mustafa Galadari Group have announced plans to open a second theme park opposite the company’s recently opened IMG Worlds of Adventure.

Dubbed IMG Worlds of Legends, the new attraction will be more than twice the size of IMG’s existing park, with nine zones spread across more than 2 million sq ft (185,000sq m), with each zone representing different brands, including Ubisoft, Mattel, Nickelodeon, Saban, The Pokémon Company, Cartoon Network, Toei Animation and TV Tokyo.

Within these brands are a number of major IPs, including Power Rangers, Dragon Ball Z, Spongebob SquarePants, Assassin’s Creed, Barbie, Pokémon and more, in addition to IMG’s own Legends of Arabia and Lost Valley – Dinosaur Adventure.

According to IMG, the park will be housed inside a temperature-controlled environment like Worlds of Adventure, only the new park will feature a retractable roof that can be opened or closed dependent on weather and temperature.

In addition to interactive roller coasters, rides, water-based attractions and live entertainment, the new park will also include 104,000sq ft (10,000sq m) of food and beverage space and 102,000sq ft (9,500sq m) of retail space.

The two parks will be connected via a pedestrian sky bridge, with a multi-park pass to be available when Worlds of Legends opens to the public.

“We are fast becoming the family entertainment capital of the Middle East with high growth prospects that permit us to plan for the long term,” said IMG owners Ilyas and Mustafa Galadari.

“We are committed to bringing the boldest, most dynamic attractions to Dubai and look forward to welcoming residents as well as visitors from the region and abroad to enjoy a unique theme park adventure like no other.”

An opening date has not been set for the new park. IMG Worlds of Adventure became the world’s largest indoor theme park when it opened on 31 August. The themed entertainment destination features zones based on Cartoon Network, Marvel and Lost Valley – Dinosaur Adventure, all interconnected via the IMG Boulevard. The park has the capacity to welcome more than 20,000 guests a day.
