    Full list of rides for Motiongate released today. The list is pretty long so visit the link below to see the whole list.



    Want to go for a ride? How about 27 of them?
    This October, motiongate Dubai, a 1.9 million square foot theme park (that’s the size of 24 football pitches, for those wondering), is opening its doors to the public. And we got the virtual tour.
    21 of the attractions will be indoors, 12 of them at the DreamWorks building, which stands at 450,000 square feet.

    Nice to see an operator trying to grow the local talent pool.

    Dubai Parks and Resorts is on target to hire more than 1,000 UAE nationals by October 2016 after completing the hiring process for its Helmi programme and identifying nearly 200 candidates for its Forsati training scheme
    Dubai Parks and Resorts has hired 10 candidates for Helmi’s USA programme and identified 40 for Helmi in Dubai, offering a scholarship programme to study Theme Park Management at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, USA

    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.

    here are some pics from Motiongate

    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.
