“At IMG Worlds our goal is to provide guests with innovative, immersive and entertaining attractions that exceed their expectations,” stressed Ilyas Galadari and Mustafa Galadari, Executive Co-Chairmen and Owners of Ilyas and Mustafa Galadari Group. “While our diverse and inclusive workplace culture encourages employees to reach their full potential and contribute to the success of the park.”

Ilyas and Mustafa Galadari Group is a leading UAE-based business conglomerate that has successfully carried on the Galadari family’s history of entrepreneurship since the 1940s. The Group’s diversified business portfolio includes construction, real estate development, retail, leisure facility development, hospitality, automobile, design, manufacturing, transport and more.

Over the years the Group, under the able leadership of the Galadari brothers has implemented an ambitious and successful growth strategy resulting in local and international acclaim. IMG Worlds of Adventure is the brainchild of the Galadari brothers. It is the largest indoor theme park in Dubai, with six unique worlds spanning across 1.5 million square feet, including 25 original retail concept stores, 28 immersive F&B outlets, a 12-screen state-of-the-art Novo Cinema multiplex all under one roof.

Along with homegrown brands such as Lost Valley, IMG Boulevard, IMG Kids Zone and Haunted Hotel, IMG Worlds of Adventure has an extensive brand portfolio that includes popular franchises and original themes like Marvel and Cartoon Network.

IMG Worlds of Adventure is the first of the IMG Group’s planned developments in the leisure and entertainment industry with future expansion projected both locally and internationally. Since the opening on August 31, 2016, the park has welcomed millions of visitors with 30% repeat visitation from residents and 70% from tourists with key markets being China, India and Saudi Arabia.  

Among recent innovations undertaken by the park include the launch of a new mobile app that allows visitors to purchase tickets, access maps and receive real-time updates on ride wait times. The park has also increased its sustainability efforts by reducing waste and implementing eco-friendly practices.

Looking ahead the Galadari brothers plan to expand the park’s attractions and rides and increase visitor numbers by targeting new markets and investing in innovative technologies. They are also keen to enhance the park’s retail merchandise, services and games; launch more F&B offerings and continue to strengthen the park’s reputation as a leading destination for family entertainment.
