What Is Unique About Their Haunted Hotel Attraction?

It's no secret that scary Halloween themes are trendy today.  Therefore creating a haunted hotel in IMG World Dubai was a no-brainer.  The IMG Haunted hotel isn’t similar to the tower of terror in Hollywood Studios America.  IMG Haunted Hotel Dubai isn’t a ride or roller coaster in any way; it’s a walk-through experience with live actors trying to scare you around every corner.  Creepy hotel staff, zombies,  ghost wraiths, possessed souls, and graveyard stalkers all wait upon the poor souls daring to enter this hotel.  The scenery is ever-changing, and you’ll have to face a maze of corridors while trying to find an exit.  This makes it almost impossible to leave this scary and disturbing place.

Firstly, you'll have to walk through a graveyardWe all know graveyards are so scary; now imagine a cemetery designed explicitly with lighting and ominous audio to scare the life out of you.

One room contains a load of bodies in body bags hanging from the ceiling. You are forced to walk past these bodies in flickering lighting and with bloodcurdling screams audio, which adds to the horrifying experience.  While walking through dimly lit corridors, you will notice blood splatters on the walls and be subjected to terrifying and creepy audio playing.  The screams of other guests can also be heard throughout the hotel- making the anticipation of something scary happening a lot worse. 

Expect a jump scare around every corner as the live actors disguise themselves so cleverly to try and scare you. Due to the nature of the attraction, only people over the age of 15 will be allowed to enter the haunted house.
