Dubai Parks and Resorts
Probably the biggest development in Dubai’s recent history, Dubai Parks and Resorts finally opened its doors to international visitors just this month. Made up of four amazing parks, one retail and dining destination and a stunning Polynesian-style hotel, Dubai Parks and Resorts boasts over 100 attractions all in one handy location. Here’s more of what you’re able to explore…
This is the perfect park for film buffs and fans of DreamWorks Animation, Sony Pictures or Lionsgate films. There are Ghostbusters to come to the rescue of, cheeky Smurfs to pay a visit to and even the chance to get embroiled in the dark world of The Hunger Games.
With more than 40 LEGO themed rides and attractions, the brand new LEGOLAND Dubai is a LEGO-lovers haven. There’s all the amazing things you can normally expect to find at LEGOLAND parks, including interactive LEGO displays, amazing rides and great shows, as well as a UAE/Arabic themed MiniLand, where you can appreciate all the amazing Emirati architecture in mini!
LEGOLAND Dubai water park is the perfect place for little ones to cool down, as all the rides are designed with children aged 2-12 in mind. This means that you can have the peace of mind that all the rides are suitable for little ones and they will have an amazing time exploring the brightly coloured slides, raft building stations and splash safari area.
If you’ve never experienced the colour and intensity of a Bollywood film, Bollywood Parks Dubai will open your eyes to the amazing world of the biggest Bollywood blockbusters. Don’t miss out on the incredible shows at the Rejmahal Theatre, where Broadway-style musicals will be shown every single day, as well as the chance to taste some flavour-filled Indian cuisine.
This stunning riverside retail and dining destination is stuffed full of amazing restaurants and fabulous entertainment, all set in a range of different eras and locations from around the world. Wander from a bustling Indian city straight into the charm of a quiet French village within minutes.
The brand new Polynesian-style hotel provides a little oasis in the heat of Dubai; guests will love the lagoon-style pool and lush-looking vegetation which surrounds the hotel building. Inside there are 5 restaurants and bars as well as an exclusive spa – bliss.

IMG World of Adventure
This rumoured $1 billion new theme park complex is also the largest indoor theme park in the world….and you’d expect so with that kind of investment! The park is split into four fun-themed ‘adventure zones‘ devoted to the worlds of Marvel, Cartoon Network, Lost Valley and IMG Boulevard.
There’s the chance to meet family favourites such as Spider Man, The Hulk, The Avengers and even The Powerpuff Girls…just be sure to watch out for the no-so-friendly roaming velociraptors as you’re searching for characters! Huge rides and immersive 5D cinema experiences are sure to be the highlight of your day though. Best of all, the whole thing is inside so it’s temperature controlled and perfect for avoiding the worst of the heat of Dubai.
Opened in August 2016.
Formerly known as The Dubai Eye, Ain (which means Eye in Arabic) Dubai is already beginning to take shape. Situated on Bluewaters Island, the brand new ferris wheel will be the largest rotating wheel on earth when completed, standing at an amazing 210-metres tall. 48 state of the art colourful capsules will transport 1400 people at a time around the 48-minute circuit to showcase the amazing landscape of gorgeous Dubai – from stunning skyscrapers to sandy white beaches to perfectly manicured green spaces.
No set opening date announced yet.
Dubai Safari Park
Embark on an epic adventure that feels as if you’ve travelled to the heart of Africa at Dubai’s soon to be opened safari park. The safari parks bring together various animals that are unable to be returned to the wild and gives them the amazing opportunity to live out their lives on a carefully sculpted plain which you’d easily mistake for the real thing.
The park will be divided into several themed areas including an Arabian inspired area to reflect the park’s location. All the areas will be specially adapted for the animals’ needs, including temperature-controlled pools and even air conditioned rocks!
The new park will span more the 119 hectares of land, where 5000 animals from 350 different species will be able to roam around freely. Species you might be able to spot include cheetahs, elephants, bears and lions, so make sure you keep a watchful eye out when the park opens its doors next year.
2017 - No set opening date announced yet.
