Dubai Parks and Resorts officially opens

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Dubai became home to the largest theme park destination in the Middle East, as Dubai Parks and Resorts officially opened for business. The new $3.47 billion (£2.8bn/€3.32bn) mega destination covering 30.6 million square feet (2.85 million sq/m) is comprised of three separate theme parks, a water park, a themed dining and retail district as well as a luxury themed hotel. The complex includes Legoland Dubai and Legoland Water Park, the region’s first Legoland parks; a Hollywood-inspired park called Motiongate Dubai; and Bollywood Parks is the world’s first Bollywood theme park based on some of its biggest movie blockbusters.

The entire destination is connected by Riverland Dubai – the themed retail and dining district, and guests will be able to stay at the Lapita Hotel, a Polynesian themed hotel that is part of the Marriott Autograph Collection. Future additions over the next few years include the region’s first Six Flags park and a Legoland family hotel.
