Dubai Parks & Resorts Discussion Thread! Motiongate, Lego...

P. 7: "John Wick" & "Now You See Me" themed coasters coming in 2021!

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the review, sounds like the best coaster in Dubai and gives the Intamin's down the road a run for their money as the best in the UAE. Would love to see an official POV of this ride some day!

 

Sorry - but the privilege of shooting a POV is being "reserved" until our friends at Theme Park Review visit us in March!

Now this is what I love to hear! Worth the wait.

 

Congrats on getting all these attractions open - can't wait to see more!

That's because I always go early in the morning and try to avoid people. In Dubai there is a law that says you can't post photos of people on social media without their permission. Hence the parks always look a lot quieter than they actually are.

Same here in Saudi. I do hope to see more soon!

 

Any news of the Hunger Games ride?

 

EDIT: ^ Beat me to it!

No news at the moment. But looks closer to completion every time I go.

 

Sounds good.

 

The HG ride really reminds me of the now defunct Speed - The Ride at Nascar Café. I'm sure it'll be an awesome ride.

It is the park's only looping ride, no?

Any suggestions where to purchase discount tickets to Ferrari World, Motion Gate, IMG, and the Burj tower?

 

I'll be there 8-9 May.

 

Thanks

Peter.

 

For Motiongate - keep an eye on their website. They just announced some AMAZING "Summertime" deals that should be in effect when you are visiting - just need to purchase them through the park's webstore.

Thanks for the pointer, I couldn't find anything on their site (which keeps crashing, so they may be updating it), but did find info here:

http://www.dayofdubai.com/news/dubai-parks-and-resorts-announces-new-operating-hours-and-packages-summer

 

Unfortunately not good for me as it only starts 21 May.

 

The good:

AED 195: admission to any one park with endless food and drink

AED 295: admission to any kind of 2 parks over eventually with endless food and drink (not sure what this means, but it's a direct quote)

 

The bad: Parks open for less hours and starts later. Though it is damn hot middle of the day so open longer is welcome.

MOTIONGATE ™ Dubai Daily 2pm-10pm

Bollywood Parks ™ Dubai Daily 4pm-12am

LEGOLAND ® Dubai Daily 12pm- 8pm

LEGOLAND ® Theme park Daily: 10am-- 7 pm

Let me know what day you go. Can meet up if you want. How to train your dragon will be open!

 

I'll be there on May 9th. I Plan to do MotionGate from 11:00 then move onto IMG later.

 

I know I'm going to melt.

Motiongate Dubai is beginning the technical rehearsal period today for their brand new How to Train Your Dragon area.

The entire new "world" is absolutely breathtaking - photos just don't do it justice!

 

I'm sure DubaiDave will be posting lots of photos soon. In the meantime, will give everyone a few photos of the beautiful trains from the new headliner attraction, Dragon Gliders - an inverted powered coaster from Mack Rides

Heres a few photos from today. They are not the best quality as the lighting is pretty dark but it should give you an idea of the how to train your dragon area.

The dragon flyers ride is amazing with really good animatronics and scenes. It also is fairly fast in places and each of the three cars gives you a different ride experience.

HOLY CRAP! That looks like such a fun ride! I don't really know much about the movies at all but the ride seems like a lot of fun. A lot of different elements and good use of real effects and projections. AWESOME!
