Developers of the IMG Worlds of Adventure theme park gave comic fans a sneak peak of a brand new ride at Middle East Film and Comic Con (MEFCC) 2015.
Developers of the 1.5 million-square-foot development, set to be the world’s largest themed entertainment destination when completed later this year, unveiled a teaser of its ‘Avengers: Battle of Ultron’ ride at the exhibition in Dubai at the weekend.
Using state-of-the-art Oculus Rift virtual reality headsets, fans visiting the IMG Worlds of Adventure stand at MEFCC were able to experience what the actual ride will be like.
“The ride will blend cutting-edge stereoscopic 3D media with a highly detailed, realistic physical set and explosive special effects designed to create a fully immersive experience,” said a representative of the Ilyas & Mustafa Galadari Group, developers of IMG Worlds of Adventure.
“We were thrilled to be unveiling our ‘Avengers: Battle of Ultron’ ride at the Middle East Film and Comic Con this year as we know that our future guests, and especially loyal Marvel fans understand and appreciate the significance of this epic launch,” added the representative.
The unveiling of the ride comes ahead of the global release of Marvel’s 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' movie, which opens in cinemas on April 30 across the Middle East.
The mega themed entertainment destination, which is slated to open this year within City of Arabia, along Sheikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Road, will include four themed zones – Marvel, Cartoon Network, Lost Valley - Dinosaur Adventure and IMG Boulevard.For all the latest business news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
