Motiongate Dubai

MOTIONGATE : Opening Day, Hotel Transylvania and much more…

Motiongate Dubai theme park finally opened its gates! Travellerczech couldn’t miss that never-ending confetti rain and brings you the opening day photos & park/ride updates!

Dreamwork, Hunger Game zone’s and water raft ride are still closed, but most of the attractions are now fully operational.

Read & see all about Motiongate rides in my previous post HERE!

So far, all the rides appeal more to a families rather than adrenalin hungry theme park fans, but let’s see how the Bullet Train rollercoaster up’s the game once opened next spring.

Now…few updated shots from around the park…

Hotel Transylvania :

Let’s have a closer look at the new dark ride. Again, the queuing area is amazing, so much details inside the show building itself and nice trackless vehicle system which takes you on a ride through different rooms inside the castle. Not much is happening though …

Not sure, why three rides ( Ghostbusters, Smurf Studio Tour and Hotel Transylvania ) has exactly the same ride system ( with different theming ). They all feel very static and you more, or less passively looking at pretty displayed props.

Smurf Studios Tour :

Cute and slow ride through Smurf Studio set up. It was actually quite enjoyable if you have no expectations, but I am sure the little ones will be delighted.

Also, the Smurf Village Express “coaster” was being tested ( not open ).

Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs river expedition :

Another ride which is still under construction…but for sure, it will be a very wet experience once ready.

Hunger Games :

Hopefully the “highlight” of the park … Capitol Bullet train and Flight over Panem attractions…stay tuned!

  • Tickets cost 250Aed per day, or 295 ( Special offer ) for all three parks

More updates will come soon !!! 🙂
