Think you have it in you to stomach the worlds’ fastest spinning rollercoaster? No, you don’t have to jump on a plane and travel more than 10,000kms as you can do it right here at Motiongate Dubai.
That’s right, Dubai Parks and Resorts has revealed a Lionsgate expansion, with not just one, but two brand new, world-first, record-breaking rides.
Motingate Dubai is already the region’s largest Hollywood-inspired theme park and now it is home to two new rides inspired by two of Lionsgate’s global hits – John Wick and Now You See Me.
The two record-breaking rides will open for daredevils on Friday, January 21 at Lionsgate Zone in Motiongate Dubai.
Here’s what we know about the two newcomers
We’ve been told that the rollercoaster inspired by the John Wick franchise is a world’s first.
For massive thrills, the Now You See Me coaster is the world’s fastest single-car spinning rollercoaster. Its inspiration? The popular twists and turns of heist thriller, of course.
Cumulatively, with the launch of these new attractions, Motiongate Dubai now holds an impressive record of most rollercoasters in a single theme park in the Middle East.
With regards to the two new theme park rides, Fernando Eiroa, Chief Executive Officer, Dubai Holding Entertainment stated, ‘The opening of the world’s first John Wick rollercoaster and the world’s fastest spinning rollercoaster are an example of the breadth and diversity of entertainment experiences in Dubai.’
