It marks the official launch of all three theme parks: Motiongate Dubai, the first ever collaboration between Columbia Pictures, DreamWorks and Lionsgate; Legoland Dubai, the first Legoland theme park in the Middle East, which will also house the Legoland Water Park; and Bollywood Parks, with rides and attractions based on some of Bollywood’s biggest blockbusters.
The destination is linked by Riverland Dubai, a themed retail and dining location, while guests can opt to stay at Lapita Hotel, a family hotel that is part of the Marriott Autograph Collection.
