In Dubai—land of the superlative—the world's largest indoor theme park opened this week.
Covering 1.5 million square feet, IMG Worlds of Adventure features 17 major thrill rides and attractions tied to Marvel superheroes, Cartoon Network characters, dinosaurs, and other theme-park standbys.
The facility will be open 365 days a year; tickets cost US$82.69. The management hopes to attract 4.5 million visitors a year.
The United Arab Emirates is experiencing a theme-park boom of late. In addition to IMG Worlds of Adventure, new and upcoming amusements in the country include Ferrari World, Motiongate, Bollywood Park, and Legoland Dubai.
