Dubai Parks & Resorts set for October opening

Dubai Parks & Resorts has announced that the region’s largest theme park destination will open its gates to the public on October 31st, 2016.

This unique destination will be comprised of three theme parks - Bollywood Parks Dubai, MOTIONGATE Dubai, and LEGOLAND Dubai, together with LEGOLAND Water Park.

The destination will also include Riverland Dubai, a themed retail, dining, and entertainment experience, along with the Lapita Hotel, a Polynesian-themed family resort.

The entire range of products and prices will be announced soon.

“This has been a long-time coming and I can’t say enough about how excited we are to welcome our guests to the destination to Experience Amazing,” said Raed Kajoor Al Nuaimi, chief executive, Dubai Parks & Resorts.

“Nothing of this magnitude has ever been done before, and we look forward to offering our guests close to 100 unforgettable rides, attractions and experiences.

“As the largest entertainment destination in the region, Dubai Parks and Resorts will support the UAE’s tourism vision and grow the family leisure industry in the region.”

Dubai Parks & Resorts will become the Middle East’s largest multi-themed leisure and entertainment destination when it opens.

Expected to open in late 2019, Six Flags Dubai will be the destination’s fourth theme park and the regions first Six Flags-operated park.

The large-scale AED 13.2 billion development is spread across 30.6 million square feet of land located on Sheikh Zayed Road opposite the Palm Jebel Ali in Dubai equidistant to Dubai and Abu Dhabi International Airports. 

Some 6.7 million ticketed visits are expected in 2017, the first full year of operation.
