Dubai will soon have a one-stop destination for families whose tastes run from Spider-Man to velociraptors to the Powerpuff Girls.
Local developer Ilyas and Mustafa Galadari Group said Sunday its new 1.5 million square-foot ( 139,355 square meter ) indoor amusement park on the city’s desert outskirts will open on August 15 and will be the first multi-themed destination to open in the region.

As the first international leisure and entertainment destination in Dubai, we have designed an entire world of entertainment. IMG Worlds of Adventure set to be open all year round will have a capacity to welcome more than 30,000 people a day and we anticipate 4.5 million guests in our first full year of operation.”
