Motiongate Dubai to reopen this month with 2-for-1 tickets offer

The Hollywood-inspired theme park has brought in enhanced safety measures

Hollywood-inspired theme park Motiongate Dubai will reopen on Wednesday, September 23, after many months of closure due to the coronavirus. To celebrate this, the park has launched a special re-opening offer of 2-for-1 on entry, with tickets costing Dh275.

The offer is valid to all UAE residents making bookings before Tuesday, September 22. These tickets can be used for visits until Saturday, October 31.

Guests who don’t want to go home after a day at the park can stay at the Lapita Hotel, the Polynesian-inspired family resort that will reopen on Wednesday, September 23, and has some new staycation deals.

Guests can book a deluxe room starting from Dh530 per night for up to two guests, including free access to Motiongate Dubai and a half-board food and beverage offering. Those looking to splurge can go all out by booking a luxury villa from Dh2,450 per night for up to six guests, including a private pool, Jacuzzi and in-villa breakfast, complimentary buggy transport, and Q-Fast Passes to Motiongate Dubai.

Motiongate Dubai is the first park in Dubai Parks and Resorts to reopen. The park, which houses 27 rides and attractions inspired by 13 Hollywood films (including The Hunger Games, Shrek and Madagascar) will also be adding enhanced safety measures.

The attraction has already been certified as a Dubai Assured compliant destination. Temperature checks and face masks will be mandatory, social distancing measures will be implemented, enhanced disinfection procedures will be in place and hand sanitisers and contactless payments will be available throughout the park.

“2020 has been a tough year for all, however we look forward to witnessing the joy, laughter and thrilled screams of our guests, as we begin to create amazing memories again. During the temporary closure due to the pandemic, all our teams have been working diligently on implementing enhanced safety measures and focusing on the park enhancement works.

"As always, our number one priority is making sure that all our visitors have a safe journey across the destination as they enjoy all the amazing fun we have on offer for all ages," says Denis Pascal, General Manager, Motiongate Dubai.

Advanced online booking will be required for all visitors as the park will be operating at a limited capacity on all rides, restaurants and shops.

The reopening dates of Bollywood Parks Dubai, Legoland Dubai and Legoland Waterpark will also be announced soon, the company says.
