Legoland opens its doors on 31 October and until then, we have a break-down of all the coolest attractions that the park is going to offer! Legoland is one attraction out of the many that make up Dubai Parks and Resorts where you can try out coasters themed after your favourite movies like Ghostbusters and Zombieland (at Motiongate Dubai) or visit the sets of popular Indian flicks like Lagaan (at Bollywood Parks)!
Back to Legoland, they have everything from kid-friendly rides, to a water park, and even a Lego factory to show young tots just how their toys are made. Legoland is open in other places including Malaysia, Germany, California and Florida, and all their parks have a waterpark, rides and a Lego Miniland however the UAE is going to be the first country to have an indoor Miniland. The park caters to younger children, with safe coasters for them to enjoy, and plenty of learning experiences throughout. Legoland Waterpark is the only water park in the region that caters to kids aged two to 12 and features a splash pad with small slides and interactive characters, plus a huge pool that has water spills from a 300-gallon bucket!
Here’s our guide to all the best attractions within Legoland and what’s on offer.
A miniature city that has plenty of learning opportunities for young kids including flying a plane at the LEGO City airport only in the simulation so no need to worry!)or saving a burning building at the Rescue Academy! Children can even relax and steer boats at the boating school or get their driving license a little early at Legoland driving school.
Those with big imaginations can explore a medieval land constructed out of the colourful Lego bricks and conquer the Dragon coaster that takes you on a journey through the vibrant castle, and try Merlin’s Flying Machine, skill games and the indoor building experience.
Spend hours playing and racing with Lego cars, or head over to the Master Builder Academy where you can bring your wildest architectural dreams to life using the countless Lego bricks they have! Toddlers and small children can enjoy the view of the entire park from the Kid Power Towers. They’ll be strapped in safely to their seats, then they tug on the ropes dangling in front of them to hoist themselves up to the top of the tower, before they gently drop to the bottom again. Perfect for younger kids!
Thrill-seeking explorers can experience the Submarine Adventure, Wave Racers; a ride that powers through waves while dodging water blasts that then transitions to an exciting journey through ancient temple ruins to find the pharaoh’s stolen treasure. Don’t judge us if you find us running alongside the kids. It sounds really fun, OK!?
A place for child architects, this attraction is made up of more than 20 million Lego bricks, all crafted into Dubai’s beautiful skyline, featuring iconic landmarks from all over the Middle East. Expect to see the Burj Khalifa and Burj Al Arab! In honour of India’s Independence Day, Dubai’s Miniland will even have a Taj Mahal made from 280,741 Lego Bricks, which took 2,019 hours to build. For those of you who are bad at math, like us, that’s 84 days. Yes that’s like 2 months. In addition to some amazing replicas, guests will be able to create an ever changing city skyline at the 10m play table, all for your creativity and imagination to run wild!
