Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

ADubai de­vel­oper that re­cently opened the world's largest in­door theme park now plans an even big­ger at­trac­tion next door. The Ilyas and Mustafa Galadari Group said on Tues­day that its planned IMG Worlds of Leg­ends park will spread across more than 2 mil­lion square feet (186,000 square me­ters) near the ex­ist­ing IMG Worlds of Ad­ven­ture, which opened at the end of Au­gust.

The new park will in­clude well-known char­ac­ters, in­clud­ing Poke­mon, Nick­elodeon's Teenage Mu­tant Ninja Tur­tles and Dora the Ex­plorer, as well as Mat­tel's Bar­bie and Hot Wheels. Of­fi­cials didn't say how soon the park will open or how much it will cost. Dubai is build­ing a flurry of new amuse­ment parks and other en­ter­tain­ment venues as it pre­pares to host the World Expo in 2020.
