World’s Largest Indoor Theme Park Opens In Dubai, Obviously
Dubai has done it again. In addition to having the world’s biggest underwater hotel, the world’s tallest building, and the world’s most WTF indoor ski resort, they’ve now added the world’s largest indoor theme park to the city’s long list of nutso superlatives.
Measuring 1.5 million square feet in size (that’s roughly 28 football fields), IMG Worlds of Adventure opened its mammoth doors to the public last week after three years and $1 billion of construction. With the emirate’s bountiful wealth and oppressively hot climate, IMG Worlds of Adventure CEO Lennard Otto told CNN “the world’s largest indoor theme park seemed very fitting for this market.”
Planning a trip? Make sure you budget plenty of time for the park’s many attractions, including 22 rides, 28 dining options, and 25 retail stores. Among “Adventure Time” and “Marvel” branded rides, the crowning jewel of IMG Worlds of Adventure is without a doubt the Velociraptor, which also happens to be the tallest and fastest roller coaster in all of Dubai (shocker).
If you find yourself tuckered out after a long day at the theme park, hop over to the the JW Marriott Marquis, the world’s tallest hotel, for a little shut eye. Geez, Dubai, what’s with the size obsession? It’s almost as if the city is compensating for something…
