Dubai Parks and Resorts’ new mega complex

Complex to include Legoland Dubai and Legoland Water Park
Excitement is building over the opening of Dubai Parks and Resorts in October. It consists of more than 100 shows and attractions, its vice-president for sales tells TTG Digital.
Dubai Parks and Resorts will boast areas such as Legoland Dubai, Legoland Water Park, Riverland Dubai, Bollywood Parks Dubai, a dining and shopping destination and the zone’s first hotel – the 503-room Lapita Hotel, part of the Marriott Autograph Collection.
There will be a soft opening phase, then everything is on track to “welcome the big crowds in October”, Julien Munoz explains.
“Across the board, wholesalers have been really positive about what Dubai Parks and Resorts will bring to the market,” he says. “Dubai is always reinventing itself, and this brings a new dimension for families. It will allow trade partners to tap into their family databases and add extra nights to their stay.”
More than 40 contractors employing 15,000 people are working on the project, which sits on a 2.32 million square-metre plot of land equidistant (about 65km) from Dubai and Abu Dhabi international airports.
The parks could attract visitors for as long as four days, Munoz says. Pricing will be revealed at the Arabian Travel Market, which takes place in Dubai on April 25-28.
