The highly anticipated Marvel Superheroes Theme Park is set to open in Dubai by the end of this year. Originally set to open in June, the comic book theme park has now confirmed it will open in December 2013.
The 100-acre theme park is expected to draw in 10,000 visitors a day and become a successful addition to Dubai’s growing list of tourist attractions. Concept art for the exterior and interior of the superhero entertainment park was released this week, leaving comic book fans around the world eager to visit the new theme park.
The Marvel Superheroes Theme Park , or Marvel Adventure, will consist of four “lands” which will be the City of Superheroes, Marvel’s Mythic Mountain, Oasis of Magic and Nick Neighbourhood. The four sections of the amusement park will surround an artificial lake called Crater Lake at the centre of the park.
The new theme park is expected to have rides based around most of Marvel’s main characters. Attractions featuring Spider-Man, the Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, the Fantastic Four and the Silver Surfer are all rumoured to be featured in the park. At current, Marvel Superheroes Theme Park has only confirmed three attractions – the Flying with Spidey ride, Fantasticar and X-Men: Danger Room - though details about the rides have not yet been released.
Speaking about the new theme park Simon Philips, president of Marvel Entertainment International said that “whether it’s having fun at one of the entertainment experiences, hanging out with friends and enjoying a meal or collecting the latest Marvel gadgets and action figures, there is truly something for everyone at Marvel Adventure.”
