DUBAI // Visitors can spin in a gondola modelled on Thor’s hammer, wave to the Powerpuff girls in a colourful parade or get chased by ghouls and madmen when the world’s biggest indoor theme park opens in August.
More than 20 rides and attractions at IMG Worlds of Adventure are in the final stages of testing and commissioning, with acrobats and dancers preparing for live performances since February.
The park – spread over an area equivalent to 28 football fields and high as a 10-storey building – promises hair-raising experiences such as the Haunted Hotel, whose visitors must be 15 or older to “check in”.
“As we want to keep an element of surprise, to keep the magic alive I will only share one attraction: the Haunted Hotel. This was the most brilliantly terrifying experience of my life,”
said Lennard Otto, chief executive of IMG Worlds of Adventure.
Walking through the hotel, guests will negotiate a maze of winding corridors, tormented by ghouls and axe-yielding madmen. More info
