The world’s largest indoor theme park—which cost $1 billion to build—opened in Dubai on Wednesday.

IMG Worlds of Adventure covers about 28 football fields’ worth of space and features a mishmash of characters from Cartoon Network and Disney’s Marvel universe, like the Hulk and Spider-Man, CNBC reports.

IWG Worlds of Adventure opens in the midst of a theme-park boom in the region: a state-backed theme resort opens in Dubai next month, a Six Flags is likely to open in Saudi Arabia, and a Warner Bros park is headed to Abu Dhabi.
