The excitement at Bollywood Parks™ Dubai, part of Dubai Parks and Resorts, the largest integrated theme park destination set to open in October 31 2016, is mounting as we get closer to the launch of the world’s first Bollywood inspired theme park. Keeping the promise to offer ultimate excitement and entertainment, the park has yet another surprise for its patrons this summer.
Whether that be the Khans of Bollywood i.e. Shahrukh from Don and Ra.One, Salman from Dabangg and Aamir from Lagaan or the cool boys of showbiz, Hrithik Roshan from Krrish and Farhan Akhtar in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, the iconic dream team has joined hands with Bollywood Parks™ Dubai to ensure an immersive experience for the eager ride seekers. With an aim to achieve the ‘never done before’, Bollywood Parks™ Dubai has collaborated with the best of Bollywood to recreate the magic of some of the biggest Bollywood films via thrilling 3D and 4D cinematic rides.
Taking the viewers through the pride and joy of the making of each ride, the park today announced the release of six videos that will be aired in a sequence leading up to the launch of the park in October. The videos will showcase the leading stars of Bollywood gearing up for their rides and attractions at the park as well as reminiscing about their experiences during the filming of the actual movies.
On the announcement of this collaboration, Thomas Jellum, General Manager, Bollywood Parks™ Dubai said, “We have the superstars of Bollywood shooting the content for our rides and they are very excited to be a part of this massive project. Not only have we teamed up with the biggest names in Bollywood, but also with an award winning team of producers, innovative designers, creative writers and directors to bring to guests the very best of what Bollywood has to offer.”
Bollywood Parks™ Dubai has become the talk of tinsel town as finally there will be a theme park dedicated to all things Bollywood. With fans and families eagerly awaiting the launch of the park, they will be spoilt for choice with the offerings at Bollywood Parks™ Dubai, which has been divided into five zones: Bollywood Boulevard, Royal Plaza, Rustic Ravine, Mumbai Chowk and Bollywood Film Studios featuring Hall of Heroes, each zone unique and exciting and home to various rides and attractions.
Bollywood Parks™ Dubai will let visitors experience innovative rides and attractions re-created from some of Bollywood’s biggest blockbusters such as Don, Lagaan, Sholay, Krrish and RA.One through immersive 3D and 4D experiences, as well as a stunning stunt show with Dabangg and a chance to become a part of the making of a film with Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.
Maintaining the entertainment quotient, Bollywood Parks™ Dubai will also bring together close to 200 performers who will be part of the various routines across our 5 stages as well as, be seen introducing the first Broadway-style Bollywood Musical to the region at the flagship property – the Rajmahal Theatre.
Stanford Pinto, Chief Park Operating Officer, Dubai Parks and Resorts, further added, “It starts right here in the heart and soul of Bollywood Parks™ Dubai, the Rajmahal Theatre. When we started this journey back in 2012, we teamed up with the grandees of Bollywood to bring to you rides, attractions and live shows for you and your family to come and enjoy yourself at Bollywood Parks™ Dubai.” The Rajmahal Theatre is an 850 seater opulent theatre that will host a separately ticketed Broadway-styled Bollywood musical several times a week, the first of its kind in the region.
