motiongate™ Dubai announces 27 star rides and attractions


March 22, 2016 | By RetailME Bureau

motiongate™ Dubai, spread across five zones including Sony Pictures Studios, DreamWorks, Smurfs Village, Lionsgate and Studio Central, the park’s entry boulevard, and an integral part of the Dubai Parks and Resorts (DPR) scheduled to open in October this year, has announced a starting line-up of 27 action-packed rides and attractions inspired by some of Hollywood’s most cherished movies from DreamWorks Animation, Sony Pictures Studios – including The Smurfs and Lionsgate.

In addition, with a handful of live entertainment experiences such as an encounter with a big green ogre, a ghost-busting singing boy band, a vampire heroine, a kung fu fighting panda or a colony of little blue friends, guests will be entertained at every turn with a stellar supporting cast.

“We are taking guests beyond the screen, into a world of cinematic adventure at motiongate™ Dubai. With an action-packed line-up of Hollywood-inspired rides and attractions from fast-paced roller coasters, multi-sensory theatre shows to imaginative play areas, plus a full line-up of live entertainment shows, there is something for everyone,” says motiongate™ Dubai general manager Guido Zucchi.

The adrenaline seekers of all ages looking for some extreme action can find it through five exhilarating roller coasters scripted around some major film favourites. The Sony Pictures Studios Zone will feature The Green Hornet: High Speed Chase, a high action roller coaster that follows the masked crusader and his sidekick Kato on a white knuckle pursuit through dizzying drops and sharp turns.

Fans of The Hunger Games can hop onto the speedy Capitol Bullet Train, an adrenaline pumping roller coaster, which launches guests through 360 degrees of thrill inside the Lionsgate Zone.

Two roller coasters can be found inside the DreamWorks Zone: Madagascar Mad Pursuit, the fastest roller coaster in the park, which will take guests on a mad chase through the circus alongside the Zoosters; and Dragon Gliders, a one-of-a-kind suspended roller coaster inviting guests to soar high above the land of Berk, inspired by How To Train Your Dragon.

Further a special adventure awaits aboard Smurfs Village Express where families can glide through the enchanting mushroom-capped town of the beloved Smurfs.

That’s not all. The brave hearts can get a dose of supernatural activities blasting off with Zombieland, Underworld’s 4D theatre or hop aboard a zany dark ride with Hotel Transylvania or the Ghostbusters. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs will send guests sailing on a white water rapids voyage.

There’s plenty of action for family and children too, with exploratory and adventure play areas inspired by these animated hits – The Smurfs, Shrek, How to Train Your Dragon and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. Guests will also get a chance to train under the masters at the Kung Fu Panda Academy, interact with Brainy Smurf on-stage or grab a front row seat to the ultimate hip hop dance competition with Step Up Dubai, All In!

“Movies are a favourite leisure pursuit in this region, and motiongate™ Dubai is combining the best of Hollywood cinema, theme parks and live entertainment to create an amazing experience for our guests throughout their journey at DPR. With so much on offer in our destination, we are confident DPR will be creating unforgettable memories for everyone,” believes Stanford Pinto, chief parks operating officer, DPR.
