UAE thrill-seekers, fasten your seatbelts. Starting on Wednesday, the emirate of Dubai will finally become a destination for lovers of rollercoasters and other head-spinning attractions when IMG Worlds Of Adventure opens, the first of a number of theme parks to launch this autumn.
The indoor park, which the operators say is the biggest of its kind in the world, opens with 22 rides and attractions in four themed worlds, under one roof on Mohammad Bin Zayed Road just beyond Global Village.
It comes little over two months before four more theme parks open near Jebel Ali, where Dubai Parks and Resorts has Legoland (and Legoland Waterpark), Motiongate and Bollywood Parks coming on October 31. A Six Flags theme park — which the Wall Street Journal this week reported will have the world’s biggest rollercoaster — is coming in 2019. More info
