Could Dubai be about to take over as the theme park capital of the world? It certainly looks that way with a host of exciting new theme parks set to open. Last week, Dubai Parks and Resorts opened the first of their new collection, when LEGOLAND Dubai opened its doors for the very first time, and there’s still more to come with 2 more theme parks and 1 water park opening soon. Here’s all the details…
The new LEGOLAND Dubai park is now officially open! With over 40 LEGO themed rides, shows and building experiences, there’s plenty of fun to be had at this colourful park. Aimed at children between the ages of 2-12, there’s so much to keep them entertained with 6 unique lands. Start at LEGO CITY, where you can become the pilot of a plane, take control of a boat and even save a burning building. Put yourself to the test to see if you can earn your driving license too! For those who are feeling brave, conquer the thrilling Dragon Coaster, or for something tamer, embark on an exciting laser challenge in Lost Kingdom Adventure.
Head to MINILAND to see Dubai’s impressive skyline recreated with a staggering 20-million LEGO bricks. Build your own creations or bring the existing models to life with just the touch of a button. Before you leave, visit the LEGO Factory to find out exactly how LEGO bricks are made and pick up some souvenirs to take home from The BIG Shop- the largest LEGO store in the Middle East! Of course, there will be some giant LEGO masterpieces on display (created by the LEGO master builders) which provide the perfect backdrop for taking photos.
Opening: LEGOLAND Dubai is open now!
LEGOLAND WATER PARK Dubai:
Another park aimed at young children and families, the LEGOLAND WATER PARK will be the only water park designed especially for children (aged 2-12) and their families. Prepare to get wet with over 20 fantastic water slides! Highlights include the Splash Safari, Joker Soaker and the opportunity to build your own LEGO raft.
Opening: LEGOLAND WATER PARK will open to the public next week on the 15th November.
Bollywood Parks Dubai:
The first theme park of its kind in the world, this vibrant Bollywood-themed park offers something totally different to anything you’ve experienced before. Each different area has been inspired by some of the most popular Bollywood blockbusters of all time, bringing their culture to life in extraordinary fashion.
Find yourself wandering along the streets of Mumbai, where you can sample the mouth-watering cuisine, or indulge in a bit of retail therapy, explore rural India at the Rustic Ravine area, or stroll down Bollywood Boulevard to join in the party. If you’re looking for adventure, get ready to team up with infamous mafia boss Don on an exhilarating chase through the streets of Dubai. Something you really shouldn’t miss, is the incredible Broadway-style Bollywood musical that takes place at the stunning Rajmahal Theatre.
Opening: 15th November
See your favourite films come to life in this theme park that’s all about the movies. MOTIONGATE Dubai brings together the most famous productions from Hollywood picture studios DreamWorks Animation, Sony Pictures Studios and Lionsgate, and invites you to step inside the world of film. The area dedicated to Sony Pictures Studios features 7 action-packed attractions including a family water ride and several interactive shows where zombies roam and meatballs fall from the sky.
