The three Khans of Bollywood – Shah Rukh, Salman and Aamir – will have their presence felt in Dubai’s Bollywood Parks and visitors will be able to spend a full day with them for just Dh285.
And those looking to spend time with their famous cartoon characters such as The Smurfs, Kung Fu Panda and Shrek in motiongate Dubai will have to pay Dh330 a day, while Legoland Dubai and Legoland Waterpark will be priced at Dh295 and Dh245, respectively.
Dubai Parks and Resorts, the developer of the Dh10.5 billion theme park destination, revealed the cost of single park tickets for 2017 in their latest company presentation.
It stated that the “2017 single park ticket pricing has been adjusted to be in line with regional ticket prices and reflect individual parks product offering in the context of destination and local market.”
“These prices are indicative and subject to change,” the company mentioned.
It further revealed that the Top 5 and Top 20 international theme park median prices were significantly above their projected ticket prices.
“Ticket prices based on entertainment value provided and clear lack of regional pricing benchmarks as the regional offering largely consists of waterparks,” the company presentation informed.
In an investor call held post the announcement of its third quarter 2015 result, Dubai Parks and Resorts Chief Financial and Investment Officer Sandesh Pandhare said: “We still have lots of moving parts you know. What we’ve announced is only one aspect of the overall ticket packaging. It’s still too premature we believe for us to update our forecast as a lot of moving pieces basically settle down, we should be able to come back to the market and update.”
