Dubai parks and resorts set to open December 18th

Dubai Parks and Resorts, Dubai’s new theme park resort will open later this month, on December 18th.

DXB Entertainments, which is based in Dubai, owns the new theme park destination. It will showcase the new resort with a special show live entertainment team of dancers and actors.

The new property will feature three theme parks. They are movie-themed Motiongate Dubai, Indian film focused Bollywood Parks Dubai, and LEGOLAND Dubai. The park’s opening is expected to further cement the UAE’s image as a major tourist destination and a centre of entertainment and culture.

The park has opened in phases, with Legoland Dubai and Riverland Dubai opening on October 31st and Bollywood Parks Dubai opening on November 17th. Legoland Water Park is set to open in the near future, but an exact date has yet to be confirmed. Together, the resort offers more than 100 rides and shows.

Blockbuster movies from the Indian film industry will be highlighted in the Bollywood park, while the Motiongate park features Hollywood characters such as the Ghostbusters and Kung Fu Panda.

The park’s opening will be celebrated with a gala ceremony at the property. Over 1,500 members of the world’s press, as well as UAE celebrities and VIPs are expected to attend. Additionally, over 200 children have been invited by the Ministry of Awquaf and the Make a Wish Foundation.

The Legoland park was in development for over three years and features 40 interactive rides and more than 15,000 model attractions and buildings constructed with LEGO bricks. More than 60 million bricks were used in the construction of the attractions.

Riverland Dubai was developed to serve as the middle ground connecting the three theme parks and water park. Riverland serves as a dining and shopping district, with a number of restaurants and a planned street theatre.

At over twenty-five million square feet of land, Dubai Parks and Resorts is the largest entertainment centre in the region. In addition to the theme parks, the resort also boasts the Lapita Hotel and a themed retail and food area. A Six Flags theme park is planned to open in 2019.
