Spoiler alert: It's a lot of fun

Why you should check out the UAE's IMG Worlds of Adventure

The UAE doesn’t do things by halves. So it was no surprise that when an indoor theme park sprung up, it just had to be the biggest on the planet.

IMG Worlds of Adventure is so massive that it takes up the space of 28 football pitches. The goal here is definitely fun for all of the family, with exhilarating rides, movies, brilliant dining options and shopping attractions in a sprawling space separated into four adventure zones.

The Marvel Zone features a stellar cast of superheroes, including Spider-Man, The Hulk, Iron Man, Thor and The Avengers, over a host of heart-pumping rides. The thrills spill over into Lost Valley, where prehistoric creatures roar back into life for an awesome day out. And then there’s the Cartoon Network Zone, where the kids can catch up with all their favourite characters.

There are rides for all levels of scare – though if you’re of the faint of heart and not-so-firm-of-stomach we’d probably advise you skip Thor Thunder Spin or Spider Man – Doc Ocks Revenge (we may or may not have witnessed the after-effects of the latter).

But if you’re all about the white knuckle rides, hop aboard, and while you’re at it check out The Velociraptor, which projects you at pace both indoors, and out into the desert sky. If you like a fright, then The Haunted Hotel will be right up your alley, too. But don’t be deceived by the friendly-named Power Puff Girls ride. You’ve been warned.
