The Ilyas & Mustafa Galadari Group, developers of the nearly completed IMG Worlds of Adventure theme park in Dubai, have revealed plans for a new Avengers ride at the park, allowing attendees at the Middle East Film and Comic Con 2015 to preview the upcoming attraction using Oculus Rift.

The 1.5m sq ft (139,000sq m) development is set to be the world’s largest themed entertainment destination when it opens later this year, with its new ride ‘Avengers: Battle of Ultron’ set to be one of the premier attractions. Using the Oculus Rift VR technology, fans at the Comic Con were able to get a taste of what the ride would be like before its opening.

“Avengers: Battle of Ultron 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 spokesperson for the Ilyas & Mustafa Galadari Group.

“We are thrilled to unveil the premier 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.”

The unveiling comes just a few weeks ahead of the highly-anticipated global release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, which opens in cinemas on 30 April across the Middle East and has been predicted to be a box office smash worldwide.

IMG Worlds of Adventure is scheduled to open later this year and will be comprised of four themed zones – two centred on Marvel and Cartoon Network IPs, while a third features original animatronic dinosaurs and rides. The fourth area – known as IMG Boulevard – will contain not only rides, but also dining venues, retail outlets and a selection of interactive entertainment experiences.

IMG says the park will become the largest temperature-controlled indoor themed entertainment destination in the world. The park is scheduled to open this year, though no official opening date has been set.
