Open since late 2016 and part of Dubai's quest to become a rival to Orlando, this vast theme-park and leisure resort includes Bollywood Parks™, MOTIONGATE™ Dubai, and LEGOLAND® Dubai and its separate waterpark. They're linked by the socialising, entertaining, dining and shopping destination Riverland™ Dubai. In time, Dubai Parks and Resorts will also include one of the first of the mighty Six Flags theme-parks to be constructed outside the USA.

What to do

Bollywood Parks™ Dubai
This unique interactive experience takes you through five zones inspired by some of Bollywood's greatest films, including a theatre where you can see a real-life Bollywood musical and a fast-action movie-inspired chase through the streets.

Inspired by the three foremost Hollywood film studios (DreamWorks Animation, Columbia Pictures and Lionsgate), this zone is an adventure in creative and visual story-telling, with rides and attractions based on The SmurfsKung Fu Panda, Shrek and The Hunger Games.

Like other LEGOLAND® sites around the world, this park offers interactive fun for ages 2-12 years. Explore the factory where the bricks are made, earn your driving licence in LEGO® City, build and race your own cars, jump on the many rides around the park, and see a few shows featuring LEGO® characters. And when it's time to cool off, LEGOLAND® Water Park has waterslides and other aquatic attractions.

Riverland™ Dubai
The central hub of Dubai Parks and Resorts, with places to eat, drink and play (free to enter).
