IMG Worlds of Adventure

Action-packed rides

Be thrilled at the theme park of their dreams

Few things compare with an amusement park for an unforgettable family day out. And here at IMG Worlds of Adventure, you can enjoy all the thrills and spills, but in air-conditioned comfort. Spread over 1.5 million square feet, it’s home to four separate adventure zones. At the Marvel Zone, kids will squeal for the immersive rides themed around characters like Spiderman, and The Avengers. Meanwhile, at The Lost Valley, dinosaur fans can go on Jurassic-style adventures, while Cartoon Network zone (ideal for the littler ones) is home to characters like the Powerpuff Girls. The Boulevard Zone is a pit stop where you can take a breather with a range of dining and shopping options. There’s also a Haunted Hotel (good for kids over 15) and a 12-screen cinema.

HEAD TO LEGOLAND WATER PARK AND WILD WADI

Lego and waterslides combined? Try keeping the kids away. The newly opened Legoland Water Park features rides like ‘Build a raft river’ and ‘Imagination Station’ where kids get to build with Duplo bricks amidst water. They also have a range of traditional water rides where people of all ages can splash, slide, and soak. Alternatively, head to Wild Wadi, Dubai’s original waterpark located in the heart of the city. Whether you want to get pulses racing with high-octane rides like the Burj Surj waterslide and the iconic Jumeirah Sceirah, or splash around in the lazy river, a fun day is guaranteed for everyone. Thoughtful touches like water jets along the walking paths to protect bare feet, and special night opening hours (on select days - consult the venue for details) make this the perfect outdoor adventure for summer.
