Dubai is a city of superlatives, so it comes as no surprise that its latest feat is an astounding multi-themed leisure and entertainment complex set between Dubai and Abu Dhabi, holding the title as the regions’ largest integrated theme park. Opening October 2016, Dubai Parks and Resorts will include a first-of-its-kind Bollywood Park™ with 5 zones celebrating Mumbai’s iconic film industry, Motiongate™, a Hollywood inspired theme park filled with your favourite big screen characters, and finally LEGOLAND® Dubai and Water Park.
Most are familiar with the international LEGOLAND® brand, but this park combines east and west with a world of adventure amidst Dubai’s most famous landmarks, including the Burj Khalifa built entirely from LEGO® bricks! The hands-on experience is designed for big kids and young children alike, with entry for tots under 3 years old completely free of charge, and encourages you to let your imagination run wild with over 60 million LEGO® blocks and 15,000 models. 40 rides, shows and attractions are set within a mix of indoor and outdoor spaces for year-round visits, with shaded areas to shelter from the scorching Emirates heat.
6 themed lands combine to create an all-encompassing family experience; Factory welcomes you to the park, where you can lather on the sun cream, rent a stroller and grab a bite to eat before the day ahead. Here, the BIG Shop offers an extensive collection of unique LEGO® toys, brilliant as a gift or souvenir for any budding constructor or avid LEGO® fanatic. LEGO® City focuses on teamwork and encourages families to work together, crewing at the Shipyard, zooming around at the Driving School or even flying a plane! Next is Imagination – as the name suggests, you’ll find plenty of those lightbulb moments here – create mini cars, build bizarre robots or climb Kid Power Towers for spectacular aerial views of the entire park. Kingdoms is the medieval land, best known for the famous LEGOLAND® dragon roller coaster ride through the king’s castle. Eagerly anticipated and a highlight for many, the ride is 16 metres in height and reaches speeds of up to 60km/hour on a thrilling, twisting and turning track. There’s plenty of water-fuelled fun in Adventure, with ancient temples shooting water blasts, and the chance to join the LEGO® divers to witness aquatic creatures up close. Finally, Miniland will make the youngest of your entourage seem like giants; this small-scale city features Dubai’s skyline and key landmarks from around the Middle East, made out of 20 million LEGO® bricks.
LEGOLAND® Water Park
Slip and slide your way to LEGOLAND® Water Park, the first in the United Arab Emirates designed specifically for kids. This impressive aquatic adventure includes 15 rides, a DUPLO® toddler play area, and a wave pool to bowl you over! The winding river which flows throughout the park invites you to create your very own inflatable raft to put to the test, while sibling rivalry may be taken to the next level on the Twin Chasers. Hold on to your sunhat as you fly down the family raft ride, and watch out as the tipping bucket spills litres of water onto passers-by, LEGOLAND® is a refreshing family day out in Dubai!
