Riverland and Legoland in Dubai

The long wait is over as today, Riverland™ Dubai and LEGOLAND® Dubai opened at Dubai Parks and Resorts.


LEGOLAND features six themed lands, each unique in their experienceoffering with something for everyone. From Planes, Cars and Boats, Knights, Princesses and Dragons, through to Submarines, Temple ruins and of course a ton of Lego and Duplo to play with. There’s rides and adventure things to do too!


Moving swiftly onwards, and to something more pleasing to our foodie palates, is Riverland™ Dubai which incidentally is open even if you don’t enter the Parks so could be a great foodie pitstop midway between Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

Located on the banks of the river, Riverland will cover four zones including a medieval French village, a Fiftys Themed American Boardwalk, India Gate showcasing 1930’s India through to a Peninsula based on 19th century architecture along with a meandering river perfect for concerts and festivals.

We haven’t visited yet but Riverland will comprise of fifty restaurants and outlets offering everything from burgers to burritos, seafood to smoothies and steak to stir-fry. The emphasis is on casual to fine dining and will be a mixture of existing brands plus some new ones.  Stay tuned, as we will be sure to dine there and let you know what we think as soon as we can.
