"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."
In the UAE, Marvel's The Avengers has broken 30 box office records including the biggest industry opening ever in the region and the film is already the 3rd most successful of all time. In-between now and the opening of MARVEL Adventure, fans will have the opportunity to see more of their favourite Super Heroes in cinemas with Sony's The Amazing Spider-Man opening this summer, followed by MARVEL's Iron Man 3 in May 2013 and Thor 2 later in 2013.
The MARVEL name and characters have been licensed to the IMG Group by MARVEL Entertainment. Marvel Adventure is owned, managed and operated by the IMG Group which has developed the complex including the interactive entertainment experiences.
The overall facility for the themed entertainment destination will be in excess of 1.2 million sq. feet in its first stage and will be the largest temperature controlled indoor entertainment destination in the world. It is designed to attract 10,000 plus visitors per day. A unique facility of this magnitude will also generate a significant demand, in the vicinity, for hotels and hotel apartments, along with other retail and leisure components.
