What’s On has pictures from the building site in Dubai of Dubai Parks And Resorts. See pictures of Dubai theme park, featuring Legoland.

The largest theme park of its kind in the region is on schedule for an opening in less than 18 months time.

What’s On was granted a special behind-the-scenes tour of the three million square feet Dubai Parks And Resorts to check on progress. And we can report key elements of Motiogate Dubai, Bollywood Parks and LEGOLAND Dubai can be seen among the construction. 

In total, around 17 per cent of the park and 40 per cent of the engineering and manufacturing elements of rides completed.

The whole project, which will be the Middle East and North Africa’s largest leisure and entertainment destination, will cost in excess of Dhs10 billion, and will open in October 2016.
