IMG Worlds Of Adventure theme park opening delayed

Mega park launch moved back from August 15 to August 31

IMG Worlds Of Adventure theme park opening delayed

The opening of IMG Worlds of Adventure theme park in Dubai has been delayed until August 31.

The park, the first in the city’s wave of 2016 theme park openings, had been scheduled for an August 15 opening.

Despite rumours that a short delay would take place, IMG insisted as recently as a week ago that the park would open on the scheduled date.

However, park operators IMG said in a statement the park had been delayed as they were “adding the final touches”.

“IMG Worlds of Adventure is currently fine-tuning the final details and is committed to offering its guests the best experience possible when the park welcomes everyone later in August,” said the statement.

Lennard Otto, CEO of IMG Worlds of Adventure, said in the statement: “We have developed many spectacular one-of-a-kind rides and attractions and we are now adding the final touches.”

Guests who had bought tickets for the August 15 opening will be reissued tickets with new dates and given Ultimate Fast Track passes. Guests with tickets should email Guestrelations@IMGworlds.com

Delay? Of course, missed deadlines are as natural as breathing to IMG! No one will be surprised.

OMG! If you've pre-booked tickets for the 15th don't worry, IMG have a time machine ride. You can go on the 31st August (or whenever it opens!) step on the ride and go back in time to the 15th Aug and use your tickets, problem solved.
