FAQ

Is the whole park covered?

Air conditioning allows visitors to enjoy the thrills and spills of their day out in comfort, away from the hot sun.
What are the four zones?
The zones in IMG Worlds of Adventure are themed around cartoon characters. The Marvel zone is all about superheroes, with thrill rides featuring The Hulk and Spiderman. Lost Valley is dinosaur-based, where visitors can meet animatronic dinosaurs and ride on a dinosaur carousel. Cartoon Network's zone is pitched at younger visitors, with characters like Ben 10 and Lazytown. Finally, the IMG Boulevard is home to the park's restaurants and shopping outlets.

Must-know

Haunted Hotel
IMG World of Adventure's most popular attraction is the spooky haunted hotel experience, in the IMG Boulevard zone. Are you brave enough to venture inside the maze of corridors and come face to face with the actors playing the guests and hotel staff? Expect special effects worthy of your favourite horror film, lighting and a scare around every corner as you try to find your way to the exit. It's not an experience for the faint-hearted, and only those over the age of 15 can enjoy being frightened to death. The Haunted Hotel is the only attraction in the park which has an age restriction, due to the horror theme of the attractions.
