The first of three highly anticipated theme parks by Dubai Parks and Resorts was unveiled and opened to the public on October 31, 2016. Along with the park's grand opening, Riverland Dubai, a diversely themed dining and shopping destination was also made open to the public on the same morning.

LEGOLAND Dubai, a LEGO-themed amusement park, opened its gates for the first time after three years of development and construction. The park features over 40 interactive rides and over 15,000 model attractions and buildings constructed with the use of over 60 million LEGO bricks. The park is composed of six distinctly themed areas, namely: Factory, LEGO City, Kingdoms, Imagination, Adventure, and Miniland. 

In addition, Riverland Dubai, meant to act as the middle ground connecting the three theme parks and the water park, was also made open to the public. The dining and shopping district features a wide variety of restaurants and shops, planned street theatre and entertainment.

With over twenty-five million square feet of land, Dubai Parks and Resorts, located on Sheikh Zayed Road, is known to be the largest entertainment center in the region. According to a report by The National, the 10 billion AED resort project has employed 13, 500 workers and 41 different contractors, all working to finish construction by the end of the initially set deadline.

The opening of LEGOLAND Dubai and Riverland Dubai acts as a commencement of Dubai Parks and Resorts formal operation. According to Dubai Parks and Resorts owner, Raed Kajoor Al Nuaimi, Bollywood Parks Dubai, LEGOLAND Water Park and the Lapita Hotel set to open on November 15, 2016, and the opening of Motiongate Dubai is set to be on December 16, 2016.

Tickets and annual passes to LEGOLAND Dubai are on sale now. Reservations and pre-purchasing of multi park passes and tickets to the other soon-to-open parks can also be found on the Dubai Parks and Resorts website.
