Merlin said LEGOLAND Dubai will cover a total of three million square feet and feature over 15,000 LEGO model structures made from more than 60 million LEGO bricks.This includes over 40 interactive rides, shows and attractions – all set in six themed areas - LEGO City, Adventure, LEGO Kingdom, Create, LEGO Factory, and the magical Miniland.
Nick Varney, CEO of Merlin Entertainments plc, said: “We are delighted to be opening in Dubai and to be working with a partner as innovative and supportive as Dubai Parks & Resorts on this exciting new project."Dubai is the most important tourist centre in the Middle East and we believe that it is the ideal place for LEGOLAND. Not only is the LEGO concept already very popular here, but LEGOLAND’s unique appeal for families with younger children is universal, making it a must do visit not just for ‘local’ visitors from Dubai and neighbouring Middle Eastern states; but also tourists visiting the region from all over the world.
"Indeed, we have no doubt that LEGOLAND Dubai will add a whole new dimension to Dubai’s leisure scene.”Raed Al Nuaimi, CEO of Dubai Parks & Resorts Limited, added: “We are excited to have one of the world’s leading global leisure operators join hands with us to enhance the entertainment and leisure offerings in Dubai and the wider region... we are confident that LEGOLAND Dubai will add incredible value to the overall family entertainment experience at Dubai Parks & Resorts.”
