The Dubai Parks & Resorts (DPR) has announced it will officially open its gates to the general public on October 31st, 2016. 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.
The Dubai Parks & Resorts comprise three theme parks – the 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.
Speaking on the new development, CEO of Dubai Parks and Resorts, Raed Kajoor Al Nuaimi said:
“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’.
“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 create jobs in Dubai, support the UAE’s tourism vision and grow the family leisure industry in the region”.
Once in full operation, the theme park becomes the Middle East’s largest multi-themed leisure and entertainment destination. Expected later in 2019, Six Flags Dubai will be the destination’s fourth theme park and the regions first Six Flags-operated park.
Some 6.7 million ticketed visits are expected in 2017, the first full year of operation.
