Thomas Jellum, General Manager of Bollywood Parks Dubai said, “We cannot wait to welcome people into Bollywood Parks Dubai this October! Each show and each ride has all been carefully developed to completely transport our guests into the world of Bollywood, whether they are chasing Don, flying with Krrish, being saved by Chulbul Pandey or playing cricket with Bhuvan and today we have highlighted our biggest attractions. Bollywood is cherished and adored not just by people in the region, but by a large global audience and we are positive that the park will be the hottest destination in Dubai this year.”
At the park, guests will first be welcomed into Bollywood Boulevard, the first of five zones, where they can listen to songs by the popular band, Magik (remember the band in the film Rock On!!!) at the Rock On!! restaurant that will be open late nights every day as well as Jumbo Café, an international bakery. The zone will also be the site of the first grand stage of the park, Crossroads, which will feature contemporary fusion performances bringing the old and the new of Bollywood on one platform.
While the Mumbai Chowk zone will provide unique offerings such as a recreation of the famous Victoria Station, built like a classic Mumbai suburban railway train offering typical Mumbai fast food while showcasing performances on the roof of the train- the Mumbai Express stage that will bring to life colourful characters from the city. Visitors will also enjoy the Don – The Chase ride, a 3D motion immersive tunnel, which will have visitors chasing their favourite criminal mastermind across the city of Dubai.
Guests can then visit the Rustic Ravine zone that will be home to the Lagaan carnival with several rides catered specifically for the young ones along with a motion simulator vehicle for older children and adults that will take them right into the heart of the film’s epic cricket match. The rural themed zone will also feature a live action packed Dabangg Stunt Spectacular show that will showcase the beloved filmy police officer, Chulbul Pandey, engrossed in visually stunning action sequences. In addition, this zone also houses an interactive 3D ride, The Hunt for Gabbar Singh, based on Sholay.
On the other hand, the Rangmanch stage set around a banyan tree, will celebrate the vibrant traditional dance forms of India such as garba and bhangra. Visitors will be able to feast on traditional dishes at the Spicy Dhaba with tasty options such as curries and tandoori dishes.
At the heart of Bollywood Parks Dubai lies its crowning jewel, the Rajmahal Theatre, 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. To complement the grand stage in the Royal Plaza zone, the Mughal-e-Azam restaurant will serve as the perfect venue for a pre-theatre dinner and will offer royal cuisine prepared by culinary artists. During the day, the zone’s Stars on Steps Stage will showcase a special performance paying tribute to Bollywood through the ages. With large LED screens that will serve as a backdrop for legendary scenes, this performance will be unmissable!
You can also stop by the Bollywood Film Studios featuring Hall of Heroes zone that will take you on the magical filmmaking journey of one Bollywood’s best travel flicks ever produced, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. To add to this excitement, two superhero rides will also be featured: RA.One Unleashed, a 4D theatre experience that will throw guests right into the heart of the battle between good and evil while Krrish – Hero’s Flight, which offers guests the region’s first panoramic flying attraction around some of India’s most famous landscapes with their favourite masked vigilante.
This star studded zone also includes the Cinema Circle stage recognizing the best children’s songs of Bollywood that will have kids grooving to their favourite filmy anthems. Studio Canteen will be a children’s favourite as it offers mouth-watering dessert menus along with a range of fast foods with an Indian twist.
