The world’s largest indoor theme park will be inaugurated in Dubai. Called IMG World of Legends, it will cover a surface of 186,000 square meters, CNN reports.
Until the moment it opens its gates, though, the record for the largest indoor theme park is held by Worlds of Adventure, also in Dubai. IMG World of Legends will be built right next to this one.
“Dubai is a growing market and a new segment for entertainment,” said Lennard Otto, the CEO of IMG Worlds. “Today the region is void of quality entertainment, and a lot of people actually travel out of the Middle East to be able to experience theme parks of this scale.”
Besides rollercoasters, swimming pools and famous characters featured in cartoons, the park will also include restaurants and shops.
Even though no deadline has been announced so far, Lennard Otto explained that he wishes to open the park until 2020, when 20 million people are expected to visit Expo Dubai.
