History of Dubai Parks and Resorts
The concept of Dubai Parks and Resorts was part of Dubai's tourism vision, aiming to create a world-class destination for entertainment and leisure. Conceived by DXB Entertainments PJSC, the development of this massive project began around 2012. It was a bold step to enhance the city's global attraction profile with direct access to the key travel artery of Sheikh Zayed Road.
The parks opened in phases, with the official grand opening taking place in December 2016. Since then, Dubai Parks and Resorts has expanded and refined its experiences, continuously introducing new attractions and shows to enhance its offerings. As someone who's seen its growth over the years, I can attest to the detailed craftsmanship and thought put into creating this entertainment behemoth.
