Marvel Theme Park Set to Open in Dubai

While Disney tries to get Marvel themed rides and attractions off the ground in America, it looks like everyone’s favorite Avengers and X-Men could be making their way into a different theme park. The only problem is this one isn’t exactly within driving distance.

Emirates 24/7 is reporting that the Dubai-based IMG Group (The Ilyas & Mustafa Galadari Group) have reached  an agreement with Marvel Entertainment to build and run an indoor family attraction called simply “Marvel Adventure.” The actual entertainment center of the park will be 350,000 square feet and will feature “retail outlets, dining facilities and a range of interactive entertainment experiences featuring Marvel characters.”

We are pleased to collaborate with Marvel for our multi-faceted themed family entertainment destination. This will be one part of the region’s largest entertainment destinations that IMG is developing which is sure to be a strategic landmark in Dubai, appealing to the region as well as other parts of the world, said Ilyas Galadari and Mustafa Galadari of IMG Group.

The park is expected to open at the end of 2013.
