When we had visited the Motiongate for the first time together, Aoon had already been there 5 times so he had a clear idea about all the rides, themes and activities. That was the best thing because this is how we had covered the whole Motiongate park in one day.

Dreamworks Theme:

We started from the tour of Dreamworks Theme from fountain of Dreams- The Dreamworks is totally indoor so don’t need to worry about the scorching summers of Dubai. It has 4 different themes based on Blockbuster movies of Dreamworks Animation Studio.

There are 12 attractions including Roller Coasters, Theatre Shows and Play zone based on the iconic movies How to train your Dragons, Kung Fu Panda, Madagascar and Shrek.

1. Shrek:

We had started our adventurous experience from exploring Shrek’s Land. We literally felt that we were in the real Shrek’s World. The Shrek and Princess Fiano were roaming around and you can also take the pictures with them.

With Shrek and Princess Fiano

We have been to Shrek’s Merry Fairy Tale where Shrek and Fiona were telling a Love story to their triplets with the help of the Puppet show.

We had experienced the 4D simulator in Unstoppable Awesomeness Ride, We had joined Po to release the Kung Fu’s legend from the Imprisonment of Warlord.

We had also enjoyed Mr. Ping’s Noodle Fling where we had also became an Ingredient of Mr. Ping’s Noodles and were spinning and twirling in a carousel Ride.

3. Madagascar:

After exploring Kung Fu Panda’s land, we came to explore Madagascar’s land. The live performance has been taken place by Rico, Skipper, Kowalski (Penguins) and Captain DuBois on her Scooter.

Time to go back to our Childhood , we had taken the Melman Go Round and enjoyed a spectacular Musical Circus experience on a carousel ride.

One of the thrilling ride of the park is Madagascar Mad Pursuit. To be honest. I wasn’t expecting it to be the craziest ride. We had entered into the dark and it was a Rollercoaster ride and totally surprised me where we were trying to escape from Officer Captain DuBois.

4. How to train your Dragons:

In the end, We have been to How to train your Dragons. Due to the renovation work, most of the rides were closed but we are lucky to get the chance to Enjoy the Dragon Gliders, which took us to the unforgettable flight of forbidden Island. It was a rollercoaster ride where we had experienced the caves and wonderful Village of Berk.

Columbia Pictures theme:

This zone of the Park has been designed on the theme of Hotel Transylvania, Ghost busters, Paranormal activities, supernatural creatures and Zombies. There are a total 7 attractions including water ride and Ghost hunting.

The Zone also has a Giant Castle to explore on Coffin like Carriages and surprise to see the Characters from Hotel Transylvania which is now welcoming the Humans.

Do you want to contribute your part being a responsible citizen to save New York from Ghostbuster?

Temple of Gozer. Ghostbuster

The carrier ride took us to the Temple of Gozer and it's a kind of interactive game where you need to shoot the ghosts. We had contributed our part in Ghostbusters Battle of New York. Unfortunately, I didn’t get succeeded in Busting much of Ghosts but here Aoon played very well and scored among highest.

We were stuck in Zombieland and the only way to save our lives was Zombieland Blast off. The ride has around 58 Meter drop free fall drop which was true one of the most adventurous experiences.

Hotel Transylvania in Columbia pictures theme

In Underworld 4D, we had experienced the thrilling and full of suspense war between Vampires and Lycans. We had also seen the weapons and paintings displayed in the corridors.

Here comes one of my favorite rides in Motion Gates. It is called Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs- River Expedition. It’s a family ride which takes you into the River and experiences the Green Jungle.

Aoon had already warned me to hold my phone tightly sometimes, with the sudden bump into the river you might slip your phone from your hand.

Smurf Village:

On the other side of Columbia Studio, there’s a magical Smurf Village with Mushroom houses and Smurfs everywhere. This zone had 5 main attractions including live theatre show with Smurf performance, play zone for kids and Rides.

Smurfberry Factory:

The factory is a play zone for the small kids but We still went there and enjoyed playing soft balls.

Smurfs Village Playhouse:

It’s an interactive show with Brainy Smurf and the entire cast of Smurf's Village. We had joined the show a bit late. We entered the Play house and Brainy Smurf Questioned us.

Where are you from? I was like Germany. Then He started talking to me in German “Wie gehts dir” means how are you ? It was quite entertaining though.

How to Explore the Smurf Village? The best way would be with Smurf Village Express, It’s a rollercoaster for the young kids and takes around the Smurf Village.

The Lionsgate has a The World of Hunger games and it doesn’t only offer incredible entertainment but also has shops from where you can buy merchandise with different themes and good Restaurants to enjoy the food.

One of the most thrilling and adventurous rides of the Motiongate is the Capitol Bullet Train. It takes us back a bit and then takes a 360 degree upside down rotation with full intensity.

This ride isn’t suitable for the weakhearted people. As we had already been to several amusement parks, so it was really fun for us and we totally loved it.

Studio Central:

Unfortunately, the Studio Central was closed but Aoon had already experienced it in his prior tours to Motiongate. The Studio Central takes to the Journey of Hollywood including the experiences of behind the scenes, theatrical opening shows. It’s an ultimate Hollywood experience for the fans.

Shopping at Motiongate:

There are more than 15 stores in Motiongate based on different themes of the Park, they are selling different merchandisers, toys, Plush, flip flops, Stationary, T-shirts and many more. We had bought pencil boxes of Smurfs for our nephews from Smurfs Studio Store.

Shopping at Motiongate

I had also bought Tank Top and Aoon had bought T-shirts of Kung Fu Panda from Dragon Warrior Shrine and Gift shop. We also bought an OEM water globe with Madagascar theme from Big Top Treasures shop.

Sometimes, they also have some sales on the products so you need to explore more stores in order to figure out which store offers the sales.

Restaurants at Motiongate:

There are 8 different restaurants in different zones according to different themes in Motiongate. We have been to King Julien’s Side Show Cafe and enjoyed their finger licking chicken and Pizza. Aoon had been to almost all of the restaurant during his prior visits to Motiongate.

Ending Note:

If you are living in Dubai, it's economical to buy an Annual Pass and you can explore all the Themes unlimited times in a year.

To capture your memorable moments in different rides including Roller Coaster, the Park has a facility to click your moments. There are different counters in the Park from where you can get Hard Copy of your favorite pictures but it's a bit expensive (around 100 AED for each pictures). We had bought Digipass of Dubai parks, which allow us to take unlimited photographs and download them from the given link.

Enjoying the Ride in Dubai Parks

You can also stay at Lapita Hotel & Resort, it offers a free access to Dubai Parks.

As Dubai Park is quite far from the Dubai downtown, the Park also offers Free Pick and Drop from fixed points e.g. Ibn e Batuta Mall, Mall of Emirates etc.
