Dubai may be known for its record-breaking skyscrapers, but now it has become home to the largest theme park resort in the Middle East.
The £3bn Dubai Parks and Resorts opens on 31 October, comprising three separate theme parks: Bollywood Parks, Motiongate Dubai, and a Legoland spread across 30.6 million square feet.
The Bollywood theme park has based its rides and attractions around blockbusters of the Indian film industry, while the Motiongate park features Hollywood characters such as the Ghostbusters and Kung Fu Panda. The Legoland area also houses a separate water park, and together the resort offers more than 100 rides and shows.
Additional features of the resort include a Lapita Hotel and a themed retail and food area. A separate Six Flags theme park is also set to open in 2019. More info
