DXB Entertainments, operator of Dubai Parks and Resorts theme parks, have announced the attraction destination will remain closed during the period and will reopen in September.

Theme parks in Dubai were temporarily closed in March due to the breakout of the coronavirus pandemic. DXB Entertainments has confirmed the closure will be extended for the summer with the park resuming operations on September 23, 2020.

Throughout the summer, Dubai Parks and Resorts theme park will continue to undergo an enhancement and renovation programme. The work will include the introduction of 12 new rides at the sites. Eight of the attractions are due to be completed by the third quarter of 2020. The remaining four rides are expected to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2020.

Mohamed Almulla, managing director and CEO of DXB Entertainments, commented: “As Dubai is getting ready to welcome back tourists with the opening of the leisure and entertainment sector, we are eager to welcome back our guests with new rides and experiences for the entire family.

“Summer period has historically been the low season for visitation to the theme parks. We are therefore utilising this period to complete the maintenance works and focus on the enhancement programme for Motiongate Dubai and Bollywood Parks Dubai.

“We are excited for the new season and look forward to welcoming our guests in due course,” Almulla continued.
