  1. It doesn't make sense to me regarding what you mentioned about failure and using the announcement of Legends to hide this. They are not a public company so they don't have to announce their profit and loss.

    Why would anyone in their right mind announce a project if they believe their current one is a failure?

    Regarding this being a saturated market for theme parks, that's far from the reality. I believe there should be more theme parks created to attract tourists shaping Dubai as a leading leisure destination. Look at the Orlando model, or even the U.K. The rest of the world that have more than 3 theme parks within a 2-3 hour radius, study will show that they compliment each other by attracting more tourists to the area.

    If there isn't enough parks then the other way to succeed is creating additional zone and expansions. Look at PortAventura, a once in loss themepark with hardly any foot fall suddenly grow to a 5m per year visitor theme park after adding additional zones, more rides and marketing correctly. By targeting the ideal customers they are today one of the leading theme parks in Europe, same story with Europa park.

  2. To me, this IMG Worlds of Legends announcement appears to be a distraction from the inevitable failure of IMG Worlds of Adventures. There is no way the Dubai tourism market will be able to sustain so many theme parks.


  3. Variety reported that IMG Worlds of Legends will open in 2019.

    IMG Worlds of Legends in Dubai will have nine “zones” spread over more than eight acres, including dedicated Mattel and Ubisoft areas, besides Nickelodeon. It is planned to open by the end of 2019.





  4. IMG Worlds announces new theme park “IMG Worlds of Legends”

    IMG Worlds, the Dubai-based owner and operator of the world’s largest indoor theme park, IMG Worlds of Adventure, announced that it will build a new over 2 million square feet theme park, IMG Worlds of Legends.
