New amusement park featuring Pokemon and Barbie planned for Dubai
A Dubai developer that recently opened the world's largest indoor theme park is now planning an even bigger attraction next door.
The planned IMG Worlds of Legends park will spread across more than two million square feet near the existing IMG Worlds of Adventure, which opened at the end of August, according to the Ilyas and Mustafa Galadari Group.
The new park will include well-known characters, including Pokemon, Nickelodeon's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Dora the Explorer, as well as Mattel's Barbie and Hot Wheels.
Officials did not say how soon the park will open or how much it will cost.
Dubai is building a host of new amusement parks and other entertainment venues as it prepares to host the World Expo in 2020.
