Dubai Parks and Resorts has opened the doors to two of its hotly-anticipated attractions – the region’s first LEGOLAND Dubai theme park and Riverland Dubai, the multi-themed dining and retail destination.
Both attractions opened on Monday (October 31), with Raed Kajoor Al Nuaimi, CEO of DXB Entertainments PJSC, the owner of Dubai Parks and Resorts, inviting Dubai visitors and resident to “experience amazing”.
“Riverland Dubai and LEGOLAND Dubai offer unique experiences and entertainments that I genuinely believe will set the bar in this region,” he said.
“Nothing of this magnitude has ever been done before and after three years of hard work it is a great honour to start to show our guests what we have achieved.
“As the largest entertainment destination in the region, Dubai Parks and Resorts will support the UAE’s tourism vision and grow the family leisure industry in the region.”
LEGOLAND Dubai is the ultimate world of year-round LEGO-themed adventures for families with children aged two to 12. It features more than 40 interactive rides, shows, attractions, building experiences and 15,000 LEGO model structures made from more than 60 million LEGO bricks. It is designed to provide a full day’s interactive, theme park experience.
LEGOLAND features six themed lands, each unique in their experience, entertainment and educational offering, including: LEGO CITY, where children can fly a plane at the LEGO City airport or earn a LEGOLAND driving license at the driving school; KINGDOMS, where knights and princesses can explore a medieval land and conquer the exhilarating Dragon Coaster; IMAGINATION, the perfect area for every LEGO fan to spend hours playing, racing LEGO cars or taking advantage of the Master Builder Academy; ADVENTURE, for young explorers seeking thrilling antics from submarine to wave rides; and MINILAND, comprising 20 million LEGO bricks and featuring Dubai’s iconic skyline and key landmarks from around the Middle East and international destinations.
