Hacks to Avoid Crowds at IMG Worlds of Adventure Dubai

IMG Worlds of Adventure is easily one of the most frequented theme parks in Dubai, and will always be crowded. If you visit during the week, however, preferably closer to the opening time of the attraction, you can avoid bigger crowds. This will also give you enough time to enjoy all the rides in the attraction (preferably more than once!) Try and avoid weekends as much as possible.
We also recommend opting for fast track tickets, which would allow you to bypass the long waiting lines and get quick entry into the theme park.

Visiting During Ramadan

Many are skeptical about taking a trip to Dubai during Ramadan because of the holiday rush, but there is a way around it. If you start your day early, hit the attractions right around the time they open, and avoid the weekends, you can enjoy the holiday season in the UAE to the fullest. Ramadan also comes with holiday discounts on your tickets, so it's a great way to save money.
