IMG Worlds of Adventure, set to open mid-2014, will be Dubai’s first mega themed entertainment park and the 1.5 million square foot project will be the world’s largest temperature controlled indoor themed entertainment destination.

"Developing interactive and immersive brand experiences provides not only kids but their entire family with new and exciting ways to engage with our shows and characters and create indelible memories. These live entertainment experiences coupled with our compelling TV offering, our new and emerging media experiences and our licensed products are the ideal platform to build and sustain the appeal of our properties.”

The venue has the capacity to welcome over 20,000 guests every day and the Cartoon Network Zone will see characters from the likes of Ben 10, Adventure Time, The Amazing World of Gumball and Lazy Town brought to life.

The Cartoon Network Zone will feature the first ever Ben 10 5D cinema as well as a range of branded restaurants and shops, including the world’s largest Ben 10 retail store.

“IMG Worlds of Adventure is the entertainment destination Dubai has been waiting for,” said Ilyas Galadari and Mustafa Galadari, executive co-chairmen of the Ilyas & Mustafa Galadari Group.

“It is the first leisure destination in the world to bring together global brands with our own original concepts.

"We expect the brand cachet of IMG Worlds of Adventure to cement Dubai’s position as a complete one-stop international destination for entertainment and leisure.”
