Legoland Water Park is coming to Dubai.
Legoland is slated to open in the emirate in October 2016 and now Dubai Parks and Resorts has announced its addition to the partnership with Merlin Entertainments plc.
The venture with the UK-based company – which now operates 106 attractions, 11 hotels, four holiday villages in 23 countries and across four continents - is aimed at children aged two to twelve.
DUBAI PARKS GETS HUNGER GAMES ATTRACTION
It will feature some of the global brand’s most popular water attractions including a half-million gallon wave pool; the very popular Build-A-Raft River where guests can design and build their own customised raft; along with the interactive Imagination Station, which lets children construct bridges, dams and cities and test their designs against the flow of water.
Legoland Dubai, the first in the Middle East, will cover a total of 3 million square feet made from more than 60 million Lego bricks. This includes over 40 interactive rides, shows and attractions set in six themed lands – Lego City, Adventure, Lego Kingdom, Lego Create, Lego Factory, and Miniland which is always unique to every individual location and showcases some of the most iconic buildings and landmarks from Dubai and the Middle East – replicated to scale in the plastic toy bricks.
The large-scale Dhs10.5 billion project is spread across 25 million square feet of land strategically located on Sheikh Zayed Road close to the Palm Jebel Ali between Dubai and Abu Dhabi. 6.7 million ticketed visits are expected in 2017, the first full year of operation.
The development will also feature the Lapita Hotel, a Polynesian-themed resort for families. With a projected target of over 6.7 million ticketed visits in 2017, its first full year of operation, Dubai Parks and Resorts is a major step toward positioning the United Arab Emirates as a major global tourist destination and fulfilling Dubai’s vision of attracting 20 million visitors by 2020.
Dubai Parks and Resorts will become the Middle East’s largest multi-themed leisure and entertainment destination comprising three separate theme parks: motiongate Dubai, a Hollywood movie inspired theme park concept; Legoland Dubai, and Bollywood Parks Dubai.
