LEGOLAND is a family theme park, based on the mega popular LEGO building blocks. The fun-filled arena in Dubai is part of the much-bigger Dubai Parks and Resorts, which also includes two other theme parks, Motiongate, and Bollywood Parks. Surprisingly, LEGOLAND is not owned by LEGO Group, but by the British theme park company, Merlin Entertainments.
With over 40 fantastic rides, family-friendly attractions, and innovative play areas for kids, LEGOLAND is a special place. If your kids are familiar with the magic of LEGOS, they’ll appreciate the fun and excitement of a land made entirely of giant LEGOS. If they aren’t used to playing with these tiny blocks of joy, well, now’s the time to get them started! The park also boasts of a giant LEGO version of Dubai’s pride, the Burj Khalifa and the enchanting Dubai skyline.

Getting to LEGOLAND Dubai

- During summers, try and reach the park after sunset. It serves two purposes, one, you can escape the heat, and two, there’s something magical about being in the park after dusk.
- As you would expect, weekends at the LEGOLAND Dubai are pretty crowded. We would recommend going in during weekdays to skip the crowd.
- Outside food is not allowed, except for baby food. So pack accordingly.
- There’s a short walk from where you park your car to the entrance of the park. Avoid high heels or uncomfortable footwear because you’ll be walking around a lot!
- Bring water bottles aplenty. It will get pretty hot and you’ll need to stay hydrated at all times.
- A combo pass for LEGOLAND Dubai and LEGOLAND Water Park is a great way to money and experience both parks together.
