The Dragon roller coaster, one of Legoland Dubai ’s most anticipated attractions, is the first ride installed at Dubai Parks and Resorts.

At 16 metres high and reaching speeds of up to 60kph, the Dragon roller coaster will be the park’s biggest ride, taking visitors on an interactive journey though Lego animation, as the ride weaves through the Legoland Castle, before twisting and turning onto the outdoor track.

“We are very excited that the first roller coaster has finally reached Dubai Parks and Resorts. More than 50% of the ride engineering and manufacturing across all of the theme parks has been completed and ride components such as Legoland’s Dragon ride have started arriving on site for installation. So this is now obviously a very exciting stage in the destination’s journey to completion,” said Stanford Pinto, chief parks operations officer of Dubai Parks and Resorts.

More than 50 percent of the ride engineering and manufacturing across all of the theme parks has been completed, according to Stanford Pinto.

Legoland Dubai will feature six themed areas and over 40 interactive rides, shows and attractions and 15,000 Lego model structures made from more than 60 million Lego bricks.

Dubai Parks and Resorts is a multi-themed leisure and entertainment destination set to open in October 2016, comprising three theme parks – motiongate Dubai, Bollywood Parks Dubai and Legoland Dubai, together with the Legoland Water Park. The destination will also include Riverland Dubai, a themed retail, dining, and entertainment experience, along with the Lapita Hotel, a Polynesian-themed family resort.
