Our guide to Dubai Parks29/07/2021
You have the family booked to Dubai, flights and accommodation are all sorted. But what to do when you are there? Here is our guide to Dubai Parks – three theme parks and a water park, all in one location. There is something for all kids, including grown up kids.
If you’re doing a twin centre holiday and you don’t have too much time in Dubai, we recommend you head to Motiongate first. Here you’ll find all your favourite superheroes and well-known movie characters like Green Hornet, Shrek and Madagascar. You’ll also discover some of the best adrenaline rides with some located indoors and outdoors, great for when you want to escape the heat of the day.
Top tip: The park is open until late so you can avoid the heat of the day. Motiongate is busy over the weekends, so we’d recommend visiting Sunday to Thursday.

Legoland & Legoland Water Park
With over 40 Lego themed rides, shows and building experiences, Legoland is the ideal place to let your kids’ imagination and creativity to run wild. Prepare to take on the Joker Soaker at Legoland Water Park or take it easy and float down the lazy river. There are over 20 different water slides and attractions to explore with your family.
Top tip: We feel Legoland is great for families with younger children as the rides are better suited and there is also a huge indoor air-conditioned Miniland to explore.
