Already welcoming a Legoland theme park as part of the upcoming Dubai Parks and Resorts development in the UAE, Merlin Entertainments has confirmed that the AED10bn (US$2.7bn, €2.5bn, £1.8bn) mega-development will also include a Lego waterpark in its lineup.

With Legoland Dubai under development and scheduled to open in 2016, the new Lego waterpark will include a wave pool, Build-A-Raft River and Imagination Station – where guests can construct Lego bridges, dams and cities and test their designs against the flow of water.

“We look forward to welcoming families to this immersive and interactive attraction, where children can create, build, and learn while having fun,” said Raed Al Nuaimi, CEO of Dubai Parks and Resorts. “With the addition of the Legoland waterpark to our existing offering, we will now have a destination that boasts six major parks which together have over 100 rides and attractions.”

Legoland Dubai, announced in October 2014, will include 40 interactive rides, shows and attractions in the park’s six areas; Lego City, Adventure, Lego Kingdom, Create, Lego Factory, and the magical Miniland. In addition to Legoland Dubai, the first phase of Dubai Parks & Resorts will also comprise Motiongate Dubai and Bollywood Parks Dubai. The project, backed by Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, is part of plans to bring 20 million visitors to Dubai on an annual basis by 2020 – the year the city will host the 2020 World Expo. The park has a projected target of 6.7 million ticketed visits in 2017.
