Jane from Destinology says,
“Meeting all the characters wondering around the park was amazing – my favourites were Shrek and Princess Fiona. For the competitive, me, the Ghostbusters ride is brilliant – it is your job to shoot all the ghosts, zap the most and you are the winner, but the best ride was ‘Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs’ prepare to get wet, in fact soaked to the skin.’

Tom from Destinology says
“I have two water babies who loved the slides. The Twin Chasers was perfect as they could race each other to see who reached the bottom first. Splash Out was a thrill for me a 60ft drop! For the family The Red Rush had a round raft for all of the family – we got drenched but what a memory.”

“Bollywood is my favourite park there is colour, music, dance and action on every corner. At Mumbai Chowk I grabbed a seat and just watched the action unfold around me. Loud and exciting and the boy got the girl – I even had a little dance with the actors. The simulator rides are pretty spectacular too.”

Top Tips for your Dubai Parks Visit
Location: Opposite Palm Jebel Ali on Sheikh Zayed Road.
Getting There: By Bus from Ibn Battuta Metro Station there are 26 daily trips. Metro station JLT on the Red Line is the nearest stop where you will find a taxi or bus to take you to the park gates. If driving, take the E11 Highway past Dubai Marina and take Exit 5 it is very well signposted.
Opening Hours: check the website for details as Winter and Summer opening times vary. The website also gives information about show times and specific closures.
Plan: Ticket costs vary, but advance purchase means a discount. We recommend a whole day for Motiongate™ and LEGOLAND® and LEGOLAND® WATERPARK and BOLLYWOOD PARK ™ Dubai is a must visit for the sheer spectacle and fun entertainment at every turn. The 2 Day all parks ticket is, in our opinion, the best option to ensure maximum entertainment and fun. If you know you will be back for a second or third visit go for an annual pass.
QFAST: A park ticket add on which allows you to skip the queues at selected attractions. If you really only have one day to spare then this is a must.
Walking: There is lots of walking involved around all 4 parks. Take a stroller if you have young ones and make sure everyone has comfortable shoes.
Beware height restrictions: some rides have height restrictions – these can be checked online to avoid disappointment and remember they are for your safety.
