Exciting plans revealed for Legoland Dubai
Park will feature over 15,000 lego model structures from 60mn bricks
Merlin Entertainments has revealed exciting plans for Legoland Dubai.
Located in Jebel Ali, the park will cover a total of three million square feet and feature over 15,000 Lego model structures made from more than 60mn Lego bricks. This includes over 40 interactive rides, shows and attractions – all set in six themed areas, some of which are already favourites - Lego City, Adventure, Lego Kingdom, Create, Lego Factory, and the magical Miniland.
There will also be a unique interactive world specifically designed for children aged 2-12.
Scheduled to open in 2016, Legoland Dubai will be the first Legoland Park in the Middle East.
Nick Varney, CEO of Merlin Entertainments plc, said: “We are delighted to be opening in Dubai and to be working with a partner as innovative and supportive as Dubai Parks & Resorts on this exciting new project.
“Dubai is the most important tourist centre in the Middle East and we believe that it is the ideal place for Legoland. Not only is the Lego concept already very popular here, but Legoland’s unique appeal for families with younger children is universal, making it a must do visit not just for ‘local’ visitors from Dubai and neighbouring Middle Eastern states; but also tourists visiting the region from all over the world.”
In addition to Legoland Dubai, the first phase of Dubai Parks & Resorts will also comprise Motiongate Dubai and Bollywood Parks Dubai. Set for completion in 2016, Phase 1 will also feature Riverpark, a grand entrance plaza and Lapita, a family themed hotel.
