    Thought I would share some images and quotes from TheNational link below...

    At Motiongate, 14,000 workers are busy building the 27 rides and attractions inspired by 13 blockbuster films.
    In spite of the searing summer heat, construction work at the region’s first theme park development is being carried out around the clock.

    An introduction to attractions in Bollywood Parks Dubai:

  3. It's Dubai we're talking about... they are working 24/7, in 4 months they can do the same as 8 months or more in another country.

  4. No way is this going to be ready for October. If they open it it'll look nowhere near finished and I think everyone knows it.

    Rides unveiled at world’s first Bollywood theme park in Dubai

    Visitors to the world’s first Bollywood-themed amusement park will get to fly like Indian superhero Krrish and enjoy a lavish Mughal-style banquet when it opens in Dubai in October.

    The 1.7 million-square-feet Bollywood Parks, part of the Dh10.5billion Dubai Parks and Resorts complex, will have 16 cinematic rides, six themed restaurants and 30 live shows inspired by contemporary Hindi-language blockbusters, including superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s Don, Salman Khan’s Dabangg and Aamir Khan’s Lagaan, as well as classics such as Sholay and Mughal-E-Azam.

    Visitors will enter the park through “Bollywood Boulevard" to gain access to four other zones: Mumbai Chowk, Rustic Ravine, Royal Plaza and Bollywood Film Studios.

    The park will also house the 850-seat Rajmahal Theatre, which will stage Broadway-style musicals.

    “We have tried to take all the ingredients that go into a Bollywood movie and pick evergreen classics for the park that will stay with the people," says Vinit Shah, chief destination management officer of Dubai Parks and Resorts.

    “We went directly to the production houses to talk about the films for the concept development and for insights for the story development for our rides."

    Immersive 3-D and 4-D rides and stunts will offer visitors a first-hand look at the behind-the-scenes action for movies such as Krrish and RA.One.

    The Bollywood Boulevard zone will be home to Rock On!, a restaurant with a live rock band recreating a scene from the 2008 film of the same name, starring Farhan Akhtar.

    In Mumbai Chowk, Don: The Chase, will bring to life the classic car-chase sequence from the film, while the Rustic Raven zone will shine the spotlight on movies with a rural focus.

    The Lagaan corner will be set up as a carnival, with a Ferris wheel, carousel and games. The ride Sholay The Hunt for Gabbar will have visitors fighting the “bad guys".

    The Royal Plaza Zone will house Mughal-e-Azam, a restaurant inspired by the classic 1960s film, with a sumptuous menu inspired by the Mughal era.

    The Bollywood Film Studios’ Hall of Heroes area will provide a sneak peek into the making of movies, including the coming-of-age drama Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. Aspiring filmmakers and actors can also try their hand at filming a scene on site.

    Retail outlets such as Chalte Chalte, the Bollywood Studio store, Desi Emporium and Mumbai Bazaar, all of which will sell movie memorabilia and themed merchandise, will be found throughout the park.

    Thomas Jellum, the general manager of Bollywood Parks, said the park was created not only to attract Bollywood fans but people from all over the world who are curious about one of the biggest film industries in the world.

    “As a European, I find the concept of the park so unique," he says. “It has a flavour that is not too spicy and will be entertaining for everyone. A lot of people are already aware of Bollywood, and for them coming here will be a good education in the industry and what it has to offer, as well."

    The full 360* Tour of Dubai Motiongate is now available. Not the most realistic of park promotions but a novel way of showing off your park I guess!

    TimeOutDubai are really enjoying Riverland at Dubai Parks and Resorts.

    As the only area of Dubai Parks And Resort that doesn’t require an entry fee, Riverland, opening in October, could easily be dismissed. Not that you could if you wanted to – it is the thoroughfare through which all human traffic must pass on the way to any of the theme parks.

    And it seems strange to say, but standing at the mouth of the one-kilometre stretch of water that reaches 65 metres at its widest point, our socks off were really knocked off. Perhaps it was lack of expectations, or maybe it was because we’ve never seen anything quite like this before in the region.
    Banks are linked by one major footbridge – said to be built with unusually high clearance in the anticipation that in the future, as Dubai Parks And Resorts grows, large yachts will be able to pass beneath – and ensconced by a fully operational tram servicing the hotel and the individual park entrances.

    The Irish Village
    Four warehouse-style buildings built around a communal “pub garden” will be known as The Peninsula, and is Riverland’s only licensed area. At the heart of it, The Irish Village which is expected to continue its trend of hosting al-fresco gigs.

    The French Village
