Dubai Parks and Resorts announces new rides and opening of Legoland Hotel
November 9, 2020

DXB Entertainments, operators of the Dubai Parks and Resorts attractions and entertainment precinct, have announced the upcoming launch of new thrill rides at the Motiongate and Bollywood Parks, and the opening of the 1,300 rooms Legoland Hotel.

DXB Entertainments (DXBE) Chief Executive, Mohamed Almulla advised last week “we are currently in the process of rolling out many exciting surprises with the launch of our new rides and the reopening of our theme parks.

“We are working closely with our partners to promote Dubai Parks and Resorts as a preferred family staycation destination.”

As reported by Trad Arabia, Almulla, DXBE advised that it will open 10 new rides in Bollywood Parks Dubai and two new rides in Motiongate Dubai.

Explaining that DXBE started work on the new attractions during the suspension of operations between March and September in response to COVID-19, Almulla stated “during the closure of operations from March to September 2020, we have focused on the enhancement plan which includes addition of 10 new rides in Bollywood Parks Dubai and two new rides in Motiongate Dubai.

“I am pleased to announce that with the latest addition of thrill rides, Motiongate Dubai will become the region’s largest theme park by number of rollercoasters.

“The expansion to Lionsgate Zone will launch in early 2021 and feature the world’s first theme park ride inspired by the popular John Wick franchise and Now You See Me-inspired roller coaster.

“Our destination will have a total of three world record thrill rides by early 2021.”

DXBE is also preparing to open the region’s first Legoland Hotel in December. The accommodation will have over 1,300 rooms, and will complement Legoland Dubai and Legoland Water Park.

Looking forward to this, Almulla added “in line with our stated hotel strategy to deliver over 1,300 hotel rooms to the destination, we are getting ready to open the region’s first Legoland Hotel.

“This will complete our 360-degree Legoland Dubai Resort offering, with the hotel complementing the existing Legoland Dubai theme park and Legoland Water Park.”

DXBE partially reopened Dubai Parks and Resorts in September.
