    A lot of the scaffolding around the roof is now down and looks like more work taking place inside.

    And that is the biggest question there is about this project right now.

    In my experience it always looks worse than it actually is and most big projects this close to delivery meet their deadlines as they lose most money by not being open rather than spending the extra money to get additional contractors in. But only time will tell at the moment.

    Dubai Parks and Resorts’ spend hits Dh5.8 billion



    Raed Kajoor Al Nuaimi, the chief executive of Dubai Parks and Resorts, said: “Construction is progressing well, with 100 per cent of the design, 88 per cent of overall facilities structure works and 70 per cent of overall infrastructure now complete.”
    In terms of production of the rides for its three theme parks – Bollywood Parks, Legoland and Motiongate – 89 per cent are complete and 16 rides have been delivered to the site.
    “We remain on track and on budget to open in October.”

    I think the presenter has his information wrong - this wont be the world's largest theme park. Maybe he is counting all three as one but the ticketing information I've seen seems to indicate three separate parks.

    Lego - standard, it will be a fun park.

    MotionGate could be interesting - would like to see how it all comes together. Hoping for some excellent Disney/Uni quality sculpt work and lush, heavily detailed environments.

    Bollywood - least interested in personally but would like to see how it all translates. A little surprised there is no coaster and hope it isn't all motion simulators.

    Considering the environment and weather - I'd hopefully check out the parks in the first 3-4 months of opening before the location's natural climate starts to eat away at it.

    The buildings are only one part of the equation to complete. A significant effort is required to complete the landscaping and paving. This requires integration of electrical power systems, low voltage such as AV, irrigation, lighting, graphics, signage and way finding. This part is generally at the limit. Ticketing and entrance systems can also cause a blip and not to mention the occupancy permit.
    But the management team are experienced and one can expect that these home stretch activities are carefully integrated in the project time frame.
