Everything is Awesome: Legoland Dubai Throws its Doors Open

Dubai Parks and Resorts, a massive entertainment destination coming up in Dubai, has thrown the doors of Legoland Dubai open. The official opening ceremony took place on October 31, 2016 and Review Central was there to capture all the excitement:

Legoland Dubai is being billed as the ultimate theme park for families with kids aged between 2 and 12 years. The theme park features 15,000 Lego model structures and the company says that it took 60 million Lego blocks to create all the Lego models adorning the theme park.

Theme park artists used lego blocks to recreate some of Dubai’s most iconic landmarks, along with a Lego version of the Taj Mahal. The theme park is part of Dubai Parks and Resorts, an attraction complex that reportedly cost $3 billion.

“So we’re very excited we have the public opening of Dubai Legoland today. Legoland is an awesome experience we have over forty rides, shows and attractions. There’s an indoor Miniland, the first ever in the world, where we built an air conditioned mini-land dome in a Legoland park so there are a lot of things for families with children 2-12 to do, it’s a full day experience for the whole family,” explained Siegfried Boerst, the general manager of Legoland Dubai, at the opening ceremony of the theme park.

A 17-meter tall replica of the Burj Khalifa stands at the center of Miniland, made of 439,000 Lego blocks. It took over 5,000 hours to construct, according to the company. The theme park covers a total area of 3 million square feet, and Legoland Dubai is the first Legoland in the Middle East and the seventh globally.

Legoland Dubai boasts of over 40 interactive rides, shows, and attractions across six themed lands. The themes include Lego City, wherein children here can fly a plane, steer a boat, drive an electric car or save a “burning building”.

Miniland, meanwhile features Build a City attraction, where visitors can find a 10-meter play table with white Lego bricks enabling them to create their own skyline. Alongside the new Legoland, the entertainment complex is set to include a movie-themed Motiongate park, a Bollywood park, a hotel and shopping district and even a Six Flags amusement park by late 2019.
