Dubai Parks and Resorts, the Middle East’s largest integrated theme park destination, has marked opening of Bollywood Parks Dubai, following the opening of Legoland Dubai and Riverland Dubai two weeks ago. Bollywood Parks Dubai is a first-of-its-kind theme park that showcases rides and attractions based on some of Bollywood’s blockbusters. The park opened with a ceremony that included various live entertainment shows performed by the Bollywood artists.
Raed Kajoor Al Nuaimi, CEO, DXB Entertainments PJSC, the owner of Dubai Parks and Resorts, said, “Following the successful opening and commencement of operations at Legoland Dubai and Riverland Dubai, we are very excited and eager to witness our guests’ reactions when they experience Bollywood Parks Dubai. Today we celebrate the opening of the first Bollywood inspired theme park in the world, and we are confident that it will appeal to a large segment of fans due to its popularity in the region.”
“We are extremely proud to see this magnificent entertainment destination revealed to the world after three years of hard work and perseverance. Dubai Parks and Resorts is paving the way for future entertainment destinations, and shall forever change the face of family tourism and entertainment in the region” he added.
Bollywood Parks Dubai will feature themed attractions and rides spread across five zones: Bollywood Boulevard, Mumbai Chowk, Rustic Ravine, Royal Plaza and Bollywood Film Studios. Visitors can experience action, story-telling and dance sequences inspired by nine popular films: Rock On, Don, Lagaan, Sholay, Dabangg, Mughal-e-Azam, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, RA One and Krrish. Bollywood Parks Dubai’s flagship offering is the 850-seater Rajmahal Theatre that will be home to a separately ticketed Broadway-style, Bollywood -themed show. During the day, the park will have up to 20 live shows across five stages: Rock On, Crossroads, Mumbai Express, Rangmanch and Stars on Steps.
The park will also offer six themed restaurants and eight retail outlets.
Dubai Parks and Resorts comprises three theme parks: Bollywood Parks Dubai, Motiongate Dubai, and the region’s first Legoland Park and a Legoland Water Park. The entire destination is connected by Riverland Dubai, a retail and dining destination at the heart of Dubai Parks and Resorts. Expected to open in late 2019, Six Flags Dubai will be the destination’s fourth theme park and the region’s first Six Flags theme park.
