    So it looks like October has been revised down to September 1st.

    Paul La France, chief project officer, Dubai Parks and Resorts, said: "Our MEP work has fallen a bit behind [deadline] projections for the end of this year.
    "We start to turn over pieces of the park next January - February timeframe and there's a sequence of handover through 2016 culminating in a soft opening on September 1, 2016."

    The Dragon rollercoaster, one of Legoland Dubai’s most anticipated attractions for children, is the first ride to be installed at Dubai Parks and Resorts.
    Looks like a pretty close to completion coaster.
    A few more photos available on this site. Check out the Smurf houses.

    DPR have also been doing some major recruitment drives this past week for actors, entertainers etc which gives me confidence that October 2016 will be hit. Entertainers are a big overhead to have on the payroll this early in the project especially if you think you might not hit your opening schedule.

    They have been advertising over their own page, Twitter, facebook and pushing this with PR.

    However http://careers.dubaiparksandresorts.com/vacancies/ shows that as yet they are still recruiting for most of their HR & Recruitment managers/directors etc so part of me wonders if this is just keeping up the PR activity for the time being.

  7. With more than 50 per cent of the site-wide infrastructure in place, the multibillion dirham Dubai Parks and Resorts development is cruising along to its opening day in October next. Development costs on the future destination — which will feature as many as 100 rides and attractions from the opening day — is expected to hit the Dh5.9 billion mark by year-end.

    And each passing week will keep adding to the project milestones. By the end of the year, 65 per cent of the entire resort development, 100 per cent of the infrastructure for the projects and 99 per cent of the ride engineering and manufacturing are in line for completion.

    “At the 30 per cent mark itself of the project, we could say we have moved into autopilot mode,” said Raed Al Nuaimi, CEO. “Because by that stage and for a project of this scope, the major risks are behind it, because all of the design works have been done, the contracts ordered, etc.

    More photos from the previous link posted:




    At a sneak preview tour yesterday, officials revealed that 11,000 construction workers currently building Dubai Parks and Resorts’ three linked theme parks near Jebel Ali had completed more than 50 per cent of construction work.

    Dubai Parks also said that 85 per cent of procurement, 71 per cent of project structure work and 50 per cent of resort-wide infrastructure had been completed.

    Driving around the 25 million square feet construction site in minibuses yesterday, visitors were able to see buildings and infrastructure coming out of the ground at Hollywood-themed Motiongate Dubai, Legoland Dubai and Bollywood Parks Dubai, all of which are due to open in October 2016.

    In the Bollywood park, the development’s centrepiece, a massive 800-seat theatre shaped like India’s Taj Mahal, is nearing completion and in Legoland Dubai the development’s first roller coaster has been installed.

    And in what will be the project’s main visitor car park, pieces of rides built overseas and shipped to Dubai are laid out waiting to be assembled like the pieces of Lego depicted in the attraction.

    Electricity to the site is up and running since rides have to be tested with a permanent electricity supply and district cooling has also been completed.

  9. Judging from the construction pics, I consider an October 2016 opening date for all three parks to be rather hectic.

    The three Khans of Bollywood – Shah Rukh, Salman and Aamir – will have their presence felt in Dubai’s Bollywood Parks and visitors will be able to spend a full day with them for just Dh285.

    And those looking to spend time with their famous cartoon characters such as The Smurfs, Kung Fu Panda and Shrek in motiongate Dubai will have to pay Dh330 a day, while Legoland Dubai and Legoland Waterpark will be priced at Dh295 and Dh245, respectively.
