They have (namely Avenger Zone, Cartoon Network Zone, IMG Boulevard and the Dinosaur Zone). You can also shop inside and get your own marvel or cartoon network items and apparels. Soon they will also open up a cinema inside with 3D IMAX technology.

There are too many things to look forward to your visit. Convinced already?

Let us give you some valuable tips for when you visit the place.

  1. Come Early – Especially on a weekend, it is advisable to arrive early in the morning as soon as the park opens. There is plenty of parking in the area but like what we said, the place can accommodate lots of visitors. If you arrive together with the crowd, most of your time will be spent lining up for the rides, which we don’t want to happen to you.

If you want to maximize your IMG World of Adventure experience and your time inside, get up of your bed early, prepare and head over to the location as early as you can. Park Timings are as follows:

Opening Hours:

Sunday to Wednesday – 11:00 AM to 8:00 PM

Thursday to Saturday – 11:00 AM to 9:00 PM

The opening hours are subject to change so be sure to check with them first a day before you visit just to make sure that the park is open by the time you arrive.

  1. Don’t bring too much unnecessary things – If you’re the type that will go there to try on every different ride that the IMG World of Adventure has to offer, pack lightly.

It will only take you one whole day so it is not necessary to bring lots of different things for the visit. Unless, if you have your own private car then it is fine or if you don’t plan to try almost all of the rides and is just there to accompany someone.

IMG World of Adventure also offer lockers for people who didn’t heed our advice or wasn’t able to read our content before heading there. You just need to pay locker fees and voila! You can use it to your heart’s content but is only valid on the day of your visit.

So for us, we suggest you don’t bring too much to fully enjoy and roam the place as lightly as possible.

  1. Don’t take the Thor Thunder Spin as your first ride – Why are we suggesting this? The Thor ride will make you dizzy and it is best suited for the teenagers, young adults and definitely recommended to the thrill seekers.

You will need a strong heart and head as this ride will spin you high up 360 degrees and will leave you tired after you try it. If you’re not sure of your capacity to handle the said ride but still wanted to try it, then make it your last ride.

Why do we think that you will take it first? Well, the Thor Thunder Spin is located near the entrance and possibly because of your excitement to try all the rides as fast as you can. You will take whichever ride you see once you get inside the park.

Nevertheless, we’ll give this ride a score of 9/10. 9 because of the dizzying effect it leaves behind but the overall ride is one of a kind.


  1. Don’t miss out on exhilarating recommended rides – If by some chance that you have to just pick some of the rides to try because of time limitation or any other factor. Take our list of recommended rides for young adults, adventure seeker, and thrill seekers.

  1. Wear comfortable clothing - IMG Worlds of Adventure has lots of rides that will bring you up and down, make you twist and turn and sometimes roll also. It is necessary that you wear the proper attires when taking this ride to avoid inconvenience.

It is also to make sure that you will be able to try everything IMG Worlds of Adventure has to offer. Wearing skirts, low neckline shirts, slip-on and slippers will somewhat hinder you and will make you uncomfortable to take on all the rides.

  1. Smokers can bring in their cigarettes – You might be thinking that with the huge area all temperature controlled, you will have to go outside the premises to smoke. No need to worry about that IMG has created smoking lounge inside the theme park for visitors who are smoking.
  2. Watch out for the street performance – There will be places at a specific time where you will be able to see dance performances and other shows around IMG Worlds of Adventure, make sure to stop, watch and don’t forget to give them applause for their performances.
  1. Put Velociraptor and Amazing ride of Gumball in your must-try – These two are the most fun ride we have tried inside IMG Worlds of Adventures. Velociraptor will definitely give you the hype and sensation that you’re looking for a roller coaster. I believe it is the highest roller coaster in IMG Worlds of Adventure.

Gumball, on the other hand, is like an arcade game ride where you compete with someone for the highest score by shooting targets on the ride. It is definitely addicting because of the end score and because we’re a little bit competitive.

  1. Don’t bring food inside - Food is not allowed inside IMG World of Adventure, so if you’re planning to get there by commuting don’t bother to bring food. There will be lots of food stalls and restaurants inside the theme park.

You can try the Lazy Town Feast (Cartoon Network Feast). It is a family-friendly restaurant designed with your favorite Cartoon Network characters, serving international cuisines on a casual dining setup. Plus their milkshakes are very tasty. Yum!

Lastly, make sure to have enough sleep so that on the day of your visit to the attraction you have your full energy to roam and explore the theme park. Most of your time will be spent walking inside so make sure that you have a bottle of water as well.

There you go we have given you tips on how you can enjoy your IMG Worlds of Adventure experience to the fullest. IMG also offer private parties and corporate events which you can check on their website.
