PHOTOS: MOTIONGATE Dubai Prepares for Opening

Dubai, UAE – Action is in full-swing at MOTIONGATE™ Dubai, the Middle East’s largest Hollywood-inspired theme park, part of Dubai Parks and Resorts, the largest integrated theme park destination in the region. Featuring 27 action-packed rides and attractions including five roller coasters, plus 15 live entertainment experiences from character meet and greets to high energy live stage shows, MOTIONGATE™ Dubai is bringing some of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters to life.



From the iconic movie reel entrance to the working movie sets of Studio Central; to dining under a tornado of meatballs in Baby Brent’s Luncheonette in Sony Pictures Studios Zone and strolling past the charming mushroom-capped houses in the Smurfs Village Zone; to hopping aboard the fastest roller coaster in the park with Madagascar: Mad Pursuit in the DreamWorks Zone to immersing yourself into Step Up Dubai, All In!, the action-packed hip hop show hosted in the 1,000-seat Hollywood Theatre, MOTIONGATE™ Dubai is bringing Hollywood to life in a truly immersive way.




Bringing together three of Hollywood’s powerhouse motion picture studios for the first time: DreamWorks Animation, Sony Pictures Studios including the Smurfs and Lionsgate, MOTIONGATE™ Dubai will offer cinematic adventure for guests of all ages, year round.




Scheduled to open this year, MOTIONGATE™ Dubai is part of Dubai Parks and Resorts which will also feature Bollywood Parks™ Dubai, a first-of-its-kind theme park that will showcase rides and attraction based on some of Bollywood’s biggest blockbusters as well as the region’s first LEGOLAND® Park and a LEGOLAND® Water Park.
