Dubai Parks & Resorts opening dates delayed. How much will tickets cost?


Some of the enormous theme park currently under construction in Jebel Ali will open its doors in a matter of weeks, but other parts have been delayed.

With more than 100 rides spread over a whopping four theme parks, Dubai’s biggest entertainment complex, Dubai Parks & Resorts, was slated to open all at once on October 31.

That sounded ambitious, and it turns out it was – it’s just been announced that Legoland will open on Monday October 31, as will the dining and shopping spot Riverland, but that will be it.

Bollywood Parks, Legoland Water Park and the Lapita Hotel will open on Tuesday November 15. And what about the Hollywood-themed Motiongate? That won’t be open until Friday December 16.

Oh, and side note, the Riverland dining and shopping area, will be free to enter, no tickets needed, so it will be a new spot for Dubai residents to regularly visit.

Ticket prices for the other areas have been announced too – with ticket options ranging from one day or one park access to annual and multiple park access.
