Theme parks are not a novelty in Dubai. In fact, the city is filled with some of the best, state-of-the-art theme parks in the world. Right from Legoland Dubai for the little ones to Motiongate Dubai, there are theme parks for people of all ages and interests here. One such theme park is the IMG Worlds of Adventure. Spanning an area of 1.5 million square feet (equivalent to 28 football grounds), the IMG Worlds of Adventure is the largest indoor theme park in the world. Opened in 2016, it sees a lot of footfall throughout the year, and it is a favorite amongst both locals and tourists. Let us learn about the best time to visit IMG Worlds of Adventure and other important details about this park.
Dubai is a city that has hot and humid climate throughout the year. So, people prefer to visit the city during the winter months (November to April), as the climate is relatively pleasant during this time. However, the IMG Worlds of Adventure is an indoor attraction. All the rides in the park are located inside a temperature-controlled space. In other words, whatever might be the climate in Dubai, it would always be cool and comfortable inside the IMG Worlds. So, the best time to visit this theme park is any day throughout the year. However, it is important to remember that this is a popular attraction, and it would be crowded during weekends (Friday and Saturday), public holidays, and summer vacations. Hence, if you want to enjoy this theme park without the crowds, it would be best to schedule your visit during the weekdays.
This theme park is open throughout the week, i.e. from Sunday to Saturday. However, there are slight difference in timings according to the time of the week. For instance, the IMG Worlds of Adventure is open from 12 noon to 9 in the evening from Sunday to Wednesday, and from 12 noon to 10 PM from Thursday to Saturday.
