  1. 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.

    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.

  3. 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.

    motiongate™ Dubai as part of Dubai Parks and Resorts will open in 2016 and The Hunger Games fans are sure to flock to the park for the two spectacular rides including an immersive adventure which will take guests through the Capitol on board a hovercraft to see the world of Panem. The second ride will be a launched roller coaster which transports guests from District 12 to the Capitol via a super high-speed Capitol bullet train.

  8. Ironically, nobody mentioned it but the Six Flags park has been featured on the official model of DPR for several months now (although in a work in progress form obviously). The logo is even there !
