As one of the world’s largest indoor theme parks, IMG Worlds of Adventure has more than 1.5 million square feet of space and is open all year round.

IMG Worlds of Adventure Review – The Rides

IMG Worlds of Adventure offers a full day of fun and entertainment with four main zones: Marvel Comics, Cartoon Network, Lost Valley Dinosaur Adventure, and IMG Boulevard.

Ride and Roll

The IMG Worlds offer a wide variety of exciting adrenaline-fueled rides and attractions that are sure to please everyone. IMG has labeled its rides as “For Kids”, “Family Ride” (adults required) or “Big Thrill” (for slightly older children). Hopefully you will be able to find a ride that fits your needs and quirks.


These rides are all dedicated to the famous and extremely successful series of movies hitting cinemas these years, namely, the Avengers. The whole place is specifically designed for people, mainly teenagers, kids and young adults who are die-hard Marvel fans

  • Avengers Battle of Ultron

 This one is open to children and families. The height range is between 1.3 m and 2.08 m, but if a child is accompanied by an adult, heights as low as 1.05 m can be accepted as well.

  •  Spider-Man Doc Ock’s Revenge

This one is called a “Big Thrill” by IMG World. You can expect more extreme momentum in these kinds of rides. Minimum height required is 1.2 m without an adult, but 1.05 m with an adult.

  • Hulk Epsilon Base 3D

Another “Big Thrill” attraction, in which you can sit in a highly momentous 3-dimensional cinema dome building, watching a huge realistic Hulk fighting off his nemeses. You can actually feel the motion penetrate through you. The 360 o view is absolutely out of this world; children and adults alike leave the dome, feeling dazed and wishing it hadn’t ended. Height range is 1 m to 1.95 m max.

  • Thor Thunder Spin

This one is similar to the Hulk Epsilon Base, the main difference being that it is Thor’s stars instead of the Hulk. Oh, and yes, there is more lightning and flashes this time too. So if you prefer Thor over the Green Guy, you might as well visit this one. Height restrictions are from 1.4 m to 1.95 m.

  • Avengers Flight of the Quinjets

The Avengers Flight ride is quite different from the previous ones and is open to all age ranges, not just kids. But this is especially fun for a younger audience I dare say. You can get into a small quintet, in pairs or individually, and then participate in an awesome race on the Avengers Battlefield in those peculiar Quinjets. Height restrictions here are 1.3 m without an adult, and 1.05 m with an adult.

Hanging out with popular superheroes is cool and all, but do you want to know what’s even more super? How about spending some time with terrifying monsters? Yup, if you are excited by the prospect of walking along with giant dinosaurs of the lost world, the following bunch of rides may be for you.

  • The Velociraptor

This one is an extreme “Big Thrill”, so beware. It is not recommended for very young children and certainly not for those with the slightest degree of “Dinophobia”. It can get scary, but looking at it from another perspective, it can become extremely awesome and thrilling for you. Height range allowed is 1.3 m to 2.08 m. For an adult, 1.05 m is allowed.

  • Predator

The predator is also a “Big Thrill”. It’s a bit of monster mania, with carnivorous dinosaur species with terrifying long fangs ravaging you. Just some precautions for the weak hearted though. Height must be more than 1.25 m.

  • Forbidden Territory

This one is for families, and the height range is 1.3 m to 2.08 m. For an adult, 1.05 m is acceptable as well. Enjoy the full extent of holograms and augmented reality as you immerse yourself in the Dark Forbidden Lands of Old. The scare factor exists here as well, to some extent.

  • Dino Carousel

Especially for kids, this huge Dino-themed merry-go-round features less scary and more friendly dinosaurs. Children can enjoy rides on T-Rex dinosaurs (if they find one friendly enough to do so). Minimum height still remains 1.05 m though.

  • Adventures in Fortress

Let your children stand on their feet and learn how to protect a village from dinosaur attacks. Children will enjoy quite a lot, with ladders, tunnels, bridges, etc. The minimum height is 1.25 m without and 0.95 m with an adult present.

Cartoon Network

If you have kids with you while at IMG World, then Cartoon Network is the place you should start since this zone includes some of the coolest cartoons for your kids to enjoy, such as Powerpuff Girls, Ben10 and Gumball, which will certainly put you and your kids on cloud nine.

  • The Power-puff Girls – Mojo Jojo’s Robot Revenge

This is the only CN ride labelled a “Big Thrill”. Kids taller than 1.35 m can enter without adult supervision, but those between 1.25 m and 1.35 m need an adult. Bad news for those who are shorter than that. The little ones can enjoy a thrilling adventure with Blossom, Buttercup and Bubbles fighting Mojo Jojo and his accomplices.

  • Ben 10 5D Hero Time

A “Family” attraction, accepting all children with adults, but only taller than 1.3 m without them. This one offers you an action-filled adventure with Ben and Rook, learning to be a plumber at Plumber Headquarters, but with the looming threat of Khyber the Huntsman. So be on your guard!

  • Adventure Time – The Ride OOO with Finn and Jake

Travel through the mighty kingdoms, meeting the Ice King and princesses along with many other characters come to life. If kids want to enter without adult supervision, they’ll need to be at least 1.3 meters tall.

  • The Amazing Ride of a Gumball

Enter the town of Elmore and help Gumball and Doctor Darwin regain control of the strange zombie-like creatures that have come to life and are plaguing the town like wildfire. Without adults, the minimum height requirement is 1.2 m here.

  • Lazy Town

This one is a fun-filled adventure land in itself. Children can let their inner wild-lings escape into Lazy Town, climbing, jumping and running to accomplish tasks. Whether they want to learn a few dance steps at Stephanie’s Dance School or enter Robbie Rotten’s secret lair, it is up to them. In the lazy town, Pirates Adventure tickets can be difficult to get, and require an additional AED 25 per person. The height restrictions for the various parts are as follows:

Lazy Town Tree House: 1.20 m
Min height if accompanied by an adult (18+): 1.05 m
Lazy Town Robbie’s Lair: 0.90 m
Lazy Town Stephanie’s Dance Academy: 1.2 m
Lazy Town Play: Max Height: 1.6 m
Lazy Town Pirate Adventure: 1.40 m (Please note proper (sporty) shoes are required to enter)
Min height if accompanied by an adult (18+): 1.25 m

(You can confirm accurate rates and restrictions on their official website).

IMG Boulevard

  • The Haunted Hotel

If you want to test your bravery while avoiding ghosts, monsters, and other creepy creatures, the horror house at IMG World is the place for you. You encounter ghosts, monsters, and other creepy creatures as you move forward in a maze in a scar spot filled with alleys and lanes, so you need to duck out of the way. There are loud screams varying depending on which corridor you are in. It feels like either you are in a warzone or ghost town. Many praise the Haunted Hotel as one of the most exciting parts of IMG Park. It is only suitable for 15-year-olds and older (which makes sense).

  • Sopping, Dining and Movies

There is a lot more to the park than just the rides. Each zone has its own themed set of shopping malls as well as restaurants. Be sure to check out those on their website as well. The Nova Cinemas offer all the blockbuster movies in a capacious hall.

IMG Worlds of Adventure Review – Conclusion

As expected, IMG Worlds of Adventure reviews are generally overwhelmingly positive, with a few subtleties to take into consideration. People usually enjoy moderately crowded parks. If it is excessively crowded, chances are you might have to wait in queues for quite some time, while those with a UFT ticket get preference. On the other hand, if you visit during the low holiday season of the year, you might not see much hustle around. The emptyness would disappoint you. Plus, some rides require a minimum number of guests to operate. Therefore, it would be wise to plan your visit with these factors in mind.

Since the Worlds of Adventure are internally controlled for temperature, visitors love to visit them during the peak season of Dubai, as there are limited options for tourism during that time. It’s also worth mentioning the delight expressed by disabled citizens for the extra and appropriate facilities they have been granted (including cheaper tickets). However, be aware that some people have given negative reports regarding the theme park staff’s behavior.
