Legoland waterpark opens in Dubai

Legoland waterpark opens in Dubai
January 14, 2017

Legoland Water Park, part of Dubai Parks and Resorts and the sister park to the recently-opened Legoland Theme Park, has opened to the public.

The Middle East’s only waterpark specifically designed for families with children aged under 12 years, the new development offers 20 water slides and attractions.

Highlights include the highly anticipated Build-A-Raft River, where families customise their own raft using LEGO® soft bricks, before floating down a lazy river. Continuing the interactive fun, Build-A-Boat invites children to build their boat model using countless LEGO bricks before testing their design against the gentle flow of water in a 10 metre river, while Red Rush sees families ride together in a family-sized raft down a 95-metre-long curving track on an 3.3-metre half-pipe.

LEGOLAND waterpark also features a designated area especially for toddlers with four small slides and interactive DUPLO® animals with water features at the DUPLO Splash Safari.

Introducing the new attraction, Siegfried Boerst, General Manager of LEGOLAND Dubai stated “following our launch of LEGOLAND Dubai on 31 October, we are delighted to open the Middle East’s first Water Park specifically designed for families with children.

“We are committed to offering memorable experiences and we look forward to welcoming families from the region and across the globe to experience awesome days soaked with adventure and fun.”

Legoland Water Park, which is located next to the existing Legoland theme park, also offers a full range of amenities, including dining and retail outlets, changing rooms, cabanas, guest services, first aid and prayer rooms.
