Dubai Parks and Resorts, a Meraas Holding company, has announced plans to develop a zone themed to DreamWorks Animation characters within Motiongate Dubai, a Hollywood inspired theme park taking shape at Dubai’s newest leisure and entertainment destination.
Featuring DreamWorks Animation franchises, the zone will feature 12 engaging attractions and new-generation rides, as well as themed dining and retail outlets that provide unique experiences through the use of innovative media and creative storytelling.
Motiongate Dubai will encompass a total of four million square feet and is anticipated to attract three million visitors a year. The theme park will host four zones with a total of 27 attractions, as well as a vibrant retail, dining and entertainment options across all areas.
“We are extremely proud of our alliance with DreamWorks Animation. Working with the studio has been a rewarding experience with its creativity serving as an inspiration for the overall planning of Dubai Parks and Resorts. The zone at Motiongate Dubai will offer incredible up close and personal interactions for guests with DreamWorks Animation’s strong character portfolio that holds timeless appeal. The themed zone will also add an exhilarating dimension to Dubai’s tourism offerings and give one more reason for visitors around the world to include Dubai as must-visit holiday destination,” says Raed Al Nuaimi, CEO of Dubai Parks and Resorts.
Phase 1 of Dubai Parks and Resorts will comprise three theme parks: Motiongate Dubai, Bollywood Parks Dubai, and Legoland Dubai. The development, scheduled for completion in 2016, will also feature Riverpark – a grand entrance plaza and Lapita, a family themed hotel.
“We are thrilled to bring our popular characters and stories through immersive experiences to families in the Middle East,” says Yoshi Maruyama, head of location based entertainment for DreamWorks Animation.
