  1. With regards to the question which rides I actually rode, I tried Lagan, where you basically sit on a platform similar to those 4D boxes you have in fairs and e.g. Time Square Mall on Sheikh Zayed Road. You are supposedly a cricket ball on a roller coaster and move being bashed around with robotic characters who represent the main character, that is the best way to describe the ride.

    I then went on another 3D attraction that moves from screen to screen, very unimpressed because there was no thrill or enjoyment again, lost in the storyline. Then waited in line for another 4D theater, there might have been 15 people with me in the queue. I stood for 30mins and I walked out because it just wasn't moving. The other 3-4 rides were temporarily closed. I can't review them, but I heard that they are also 3D/4D rides.

    It wasn't just me also who commented in regards to their experience, I was talking with another group of a local and and Indian gentleman while waiting for that 4D theater, they mentioned that this was their first and last time. Why pay money to experience this park when I can pay 30 AED and watch an Indian movie, I came to have fun not to watch shows.

    They had good souvenir shops with nice products.

    In regards to the comment that mentioned teething problems, I completely understand. This is why I didn't mention any review on the staff or ride breakdowns, I clearly reviewed the ride qualities, the smell, high crazy charges for low quality food, overall price.

    Riverland was nice, I think the French area was the most beautiful, I loved the atmosphere. That was probably my favorite.

    Experience it for yourself. Everyone has different preferences but for me, my family, and the couple of people around me: no one enjoyed it.

  2. To be fair, multiple reviews needs to be available. So the review below is not enough.

    Also, this is a completely new park. It will have teething problems. And it will evolve.

    Come on we are talking about Dubai here!

  3. I'm interested in knowing more. Can you review in more detail the rides you actually rode at Bollywood Parks? Thanks.

  4. I'm very very disappointed with how LEGOLAND and Bollywood park turned out to be. The finishing in LEGOLAND with fungus landscaped areas, to a ghost town of a theme park.

    I took my kids with me, thinking they would enjoy. Instead, they requested to leave the park from how bored they were and my kids are 8 and 6 years old, both boys. We then went to Bollywood Land expecting something to fix the disappointment of LEGOLAND, just to be even more disappointed. It is beautifully themed but horrible offerings. I am not a racist or anything, but for me, personal hygiene is a very important factor. As soon as we got into Bollywood Land, the smell was as if I had just landed into Mumbai, who ever has gone there would understand how bad that smell is. The attractions were cheap fun fair and Mall 4D boxes with just screens.

    The food throughout the parks is OVERLY overpriced with horrible taste, paying 50 AED for three fried chickens, and they only gave us tiny breast pieces which were super dry and without flavor. I would rather go to KFC and pay 20 AED for huge pieces that taste better. Then we went to get an ice cream and paid 10 AED for a London dairy ice cream that normally costs 2 AED.

    The best part is the parking, they offered me two options - valet and normal. I was shocked when they asked us to pay to park, but anyway we first thought let's use the valet because maybe the normal parking is too far from the parks. They then mentioned we would be paying 150 AED for valet and it is not shaded or we can pay 50 AED and get non-valet but shaded, so we said never mind let's just pay the 50 AED and walk. We were shocked that literally the shaded parking was maybe 2 meters away from the valet, so we were about to pay 3 times the parking price for nothing.

    I was doing my calculations, if I had to buy the annual pass for me my wife and two kids, it would cost us 9,980 AED. For that price I would use the most of it, so for every public holiday and weekends we would be planning to come there, and the parking itself would cost 7,200 AED, which means I would be paying over 17,000 AED for a third rate theme park? No thanks...

    I'll continue to stick with Ferrari world, IMG park, and even Global Village, even if I added all three of these parks together and got an annual pass it would be cheaper than DPR.

    Oh forgot to mention this, so as we went on LEGOLAND website they mentioned they had 40 rides and attractions only to learn every person wearing a costume was a ride and attraction too, so in total I saw maybe 7 rides. I want to see these 100 rides and attractions that were promised. And in front of Bollywood Land they have an Indian night club, I thought they are building a family theme park?

    I would rate the parks 4/10.

  5. Bollywood Park is open
