    New roads leading into the parks are now complete and will be ready for traffic on the 31st October.



    The interchange and a network of roads, built at a cost of Dh250 million, will provide entry and exit to and from Shaikh Zayed Road from the direction of Abu Dhabi as well as Dubai. It also offers a direct 7-kilometre-long link between Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Road and Shaikh Zayed Road running within the theme park, with two lanes in each direction. Other internal roads run up to 9 kilometres.

  2. Legoland: October 31.
    Bollywood & Lego Water Park: November 15
    Motiongate: December 16

    Even these new deadlines will be tough to keep.

  3. Agreed! It's best to wait.

    More details on two rides in Bollywood.

    This fun-filled attraction is called ‘Lagaan: Thrill of Victory Ride’ and will be located at the Rustic Ravine zone of the Bollywood-themed Park in Dubai.
    It is a rollercoaster-based motion simulator, which gives visitors the perspective of a moving cricket ball.
    Guests can therefore join Bhuvan (played by Aamir Khan) and team in a cricket game against the British Raj, all over again.
    But alongside Aamir, it seems Shahrukh Khan’s Don will also be a 3D ride called ‘Don: The Chase Ride’.
    Talking about this action-packed attraction, King Khan says:
    “This time the chase is in Dubai, on the very famous Sheikh Zayed Road and also other famous landmarks of Dubai.
    “As the famous dialogue of the movie goes — ‘Don ko pakadana mushkil hi nahin, namumkin hai’ that means it’s not only difficult to catch Don, but impossible as well.”

  7. Surprise, surprise!

    Dubai: Changes to the opening of Dubai Parks & Resorts in Jebel Ali were announced on Thursday with delays to Bollywood Parks, Legoland Water Park and Motiongate.

    Legoland Dubai and the entertaining and dining district Riverland Dubai will open on the previously announced date of October 31. However, Bollywood Parks and Legoland Water Park will now open on November 15, while Motiongate opening has been pushed to December 16, a statement said on Thursday.

  8. This is an Emirati cultural thing that they are never realistic on numbers or dates because they are under tremendous pressure from the Prime Minister's office to meet 'fantasyland' KPIs (key performance indicators) and supply never-ending sunny reports and paperwork of progress and positive news.

  9. I doubt most of us are surprised that this is being delayed. If I were a betting person, I would bet that the Nov and Dec dates are missed as well.

    My thinking is a large portion will open in January and ongoing work will continue through 2017 on motiongate and Bollywood. Maybe by Holiday 2018 they will be fully complete.

  10. Don't book a flight until all three parks are open and all rides are functioning properly.
