Parts for rides at Dubai movie theme park now on site

Key components for rides which will form part of the Dubai Parks and Resorts theme park have started to arrive on site, developers have said.

Best in class global ride manufacturers are starting to put together rollercoaster tracks, immersion tunnels, drop towers, flying theatres, round rides and other media based attractions, a statement said.

The landmark development will be comprised of three theme parks – motiongate Dubai, Bollywood Parks Dubai and Legoland Dubai, together with a Water Park.

After the ride components are shipped to Dubai and assembled onsite, each attraction will undergo a stringent series of tests, sanctioned according to international industry standards.

Matthew Priddy, chief technical officer of Dubai Parks and Resorts, said: “This project is unlike any other we have ever worked on. We are not just building one unforgettable experience, but multiple unforgettable experiences that will serve as pillars to the region’s tourism sector for decades to come.

“We have the best teams in the world working on this project. Every attraction will not only deliver an amazing and unique guest experience but also unquestionable safety.”

Last month, Dubai Parks and Resorts said it has partnered with Lionsgate to bring The Hunger Games and Step Up themed attractions to its motiongate Dubai park.

Raed Al Nuaimi, CEO of Dubai Parks and Resorts, said: “Following a rigorous bidding process, we have appointed a stellar team of the world’s leading players in the entertainment rides industry.

“We look forward to offering our visitors an exciting variety of more than 100 unforgettable attractions and experiences. As the largest entertainment destination in the region, Dubai Parks and Resorts will support the UAE’s tourism vision and serve as a key step towards reaching the country’s visitor targets.”
