Thrills and chills

Veathika Jain vis­its IMG Worlds of Ad­ven­ture Dubai on its open­ing day

7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

The world’s largest in­door theme park - IMG Worlds of Ad­ven­ture Dubai - opened its doors to the pub­lic yes­ter­day. We went along to check it out… THRILLING FIRST RIDE

The Thor Thun­der Spin is not one for the kids. The ride spins 360 de­grees, clock­wise and anti-clock­wise, with a few sec­onds of one be­ing sus­pended in the air up­side down. A big thumbs up. TAK­ING THE PLUNGE

Adults can go on all rides, but I would say there are four main ones. Thor, Do­coco’s, Preda­tor and Ve­loci­rap­tor.

An out­door roller coaster ride, Ve­loci­rap­tor - runs at 100kph and has a few big drops, turns and spins. This 116-sec­ond ride is per­fect for a thrillseeker like me.

My next stop was the in­door roller coaster, Preda­tor, and I must say after Thor and Ve­loci­rap­tor, this was a baby ride.

Apart from one big drop, there wasn’t much of an ad­ven­ture. I sug­gest to do this one be­fore you try the out­door roller coaster.


Another adult ad­ven­ture is the Haunted Ho­tel, where ac­tors dress up and scare the vis­i­tors. The eight-minute ex­pe­ri­ence is quite spooky. I looked at some of the peo­ple com­ing out of the ho­tel with white faces. I was not up for this ex­pe­ri­ence, but if you don’t get scared then give it a go.
