The park’s crown jewel, the Rajmahal Theatre, brings a taste of Broadway-style performances to Dubai, but with a twist: it features unique Bollywood musicals that will test the bounds of your imagination and bring you into a colorful and joyous world of splendor.

LEGOLAND Dubai — Best Children's Theme Park in Dubai


The contents of this park are obviously clear from its name: it features everything Lego!

Dubaing ScoreTM: 4/5


Extension of LEGOLAND Dubai: LEGOLAND Water Park


LEGOLAND as a whole is catered primarily for family fun, especially families with kids aged 2 – 12. That’s why this parks excels at catering to that age group. But don’t worry, this water park is still exceptionally fun.

Highlights: LEGOLAND Water Park has a unique concept; you customize your own raft out of LEGO and then take it for a dive! The park has plenty of water slides that offer exhilarating dives and swings that’d give all ages some fun. The rides are not as wild as the slides at Aquaventure and Wild Wadi, but there’s plenty of splashing and wet fun! Ranking: Best Water Parks in Dubai
