After the long wait, the highly anticipated IMG Worlds of Adventure has already opened its gates for the public. This newest attraction in Dubai is said to be the worlds largest indoor theme park. With over 22 rides in 4 different themed worlds, one would heavily expect a lot of fun and shouting as you brace yourself with some of the rides that will surely leave you wanting for more.
IMG Worlds of Adventure is located in the heart of Dubai. It would probably take you around 30 minutes if you are travelling from the downtown area. On the way, expect to pass by some deserts and a bit of a nowhere kinda vibe.
The park opens at 11 AM and closes at around 9PM(Sun, Mon, Tues, Wed) or 10 PM(Thurs, Fri, Sat). I would advise you to be there at around 11AM so that you get to ride the attractions with far lesser queue.
IMG Worlds is indeed pretty big inside. It has different themes which are MARVEL, CARTOON NETWORK, THE LOST VALLEY AND IMG BOULEVARD. A price of a single ticket will cost you around 300 AED but a simple hack to get a fairly cheaper ticket price is to look for sellers at Dubizzle ( I don't know how they do it but the ticket actually works. Bought mine for 200 AED).
For the food, I was actually quite surprised that it's not overpriced. The serving and the taste of the dish was good. We had some Italian Pizza there and it was really good.
Out of all the rides in the park, here are my top 5 RIDES that's gonna give you back the value for what you paid for and will definitely leave a mark in your visit here at IMG WORLDS.
5.) The Powerpuff Girls - Mojo Jojo's Robot Rampage (CARTOON NETWORK)
Don't be fooled by the old "Sugar, Spice, and Everything nice" shenanigan. This seeminlgy adorable and child-friendly ride will surely take you in for a surprise as it propels you 360 degrees in a circular motion for a couple of minutes.

4.) Spider-Man Doc Ock's Revenge (MARVEL)
If you're rather curious on what spiderman feel when he's out there swinging and fighting all the villain, then you should definitely give this ride a go. What seems to be a plain and simple ride turned out to be one hell of a experience. I didn't expect this indoor roller coaster ride to be filled with loops in a very fast pace. Good thing there was no drop or else I would probably die. :'D

3.) THOR Thunder Spin (MARVEL)
If the Power Puff Girls didn't give you quite the nausea that you expected, then I bet this ride will. Thor isn't kidding when he challenged you for a Thunder Spin. This terrifying ride will make you feel like a cloth in a washing machine. What's worst is that it does that at a very high altitude.

2.) Predator (LOST VALLEY)
This ride nearly killed me for REAAAALLL. One of the best ride to try and boast afterwards is this jaw dropping coaster which slowly soars up and just deliver you in a 90 degree drop that will leave you screaming. I kinda expect the horror when we were going up as I already felt how steep the drop is going to be.

1.) The Velociraptor (LOST VALLEY)
This is hands down the best ride in the park. One should never leave without trying it. This is high-speed rollercoaster is the only ride that'll take you outside. With lots of loops, drops and even a short pause to enjoy the view (or horror that there's still more to come); this ride is worth all those screaming and I for one had the best roller coaster ride of my life here (better than the flying aces of ferrari word). And FYI, this has got to be the longest 2-minute ride of my life.

Of all the theme parks that I have been to, I enjoyed IMG Worlds a lot. It had a fair balance of rides for the kids, entertaining 4D/5D action movies, and thrilling rides for the adventurous. Hope you enjoy the theme park like I did. For transportation back home, there are a lot of taxi waiting outside so don' t fret. Simply have fun and enjoy the day.
