Legoland Dubai: Should you make the trip?
As we approach the school holidays, Mother, Baby and Child looks at Legoland Dubai – the biggest new family attraction to hit the UAE this season.
What’s on offer at Legoland Dubai?
It’s the only theme park in the UAE created uniquely for kids aged 2-12. Unlike traditional theme parks with many of the rides aimed towards teenagers there’s plenty of rides aimed at under tens. The theme park is divided into seven areas. Highlights are Lego city, with its own boating school, police headquarters and airport. The submarine adventure, with 1,500 of marine animals and the Kingdoms magical Lego area.
Perhaps the most exciting addition is the Legoland waterpark opening this month. Visitors can expect a special ‘Duplo’ toddler play area and slides, over 15 water slides for all the family, and an area where you can build your own Lego raft.
If you do have older kids as well as little ones, although they will be able to gain entry, they may find themselves a little bored. The ticket price for over 11s is a little steep too, at the full adult rate of AED 295 per person.
Mother, Baby and Child’s verdict…
It’s the perfect daytrip destination for families with young children. Although there is a great indoor area (the Lego factory, build and test area and miniland are all indoors) it’s better to visit during the cooler months so as not to miss out on the extensive range of outdoor rides.
AED 250 for 3-11 year olds for a day pass, 295 for 11-adults. Open 10am-6pm daily. Address: Located on Sheikh Zayed Road, near to Palm Jebel Ali in Dubai, UAE. For more information click here.
