Tickets and Admission Tickets

For a day ticket, you have to pay 175 dirhams per person. Entry is a bit cheaper for the children. But it is always recommended that you buy a ticket where you can combine several parks with each other. Then you always save money and can also look at the others.

Admission for just a single-day ticket is always the most expensive. Furthermore, there are always offers where you can save money.

During the main season in Dubai over the winter there are usually no discounts and you have to pay the regular entrance fee.

Directions and Address

There is no exact address for the amusement park. You just drive on Sheikh Zayed Road towards Jebel Ali. Then there is a big sign where you have to drive out.

The last one is at Ibn Batutta Mall and from there it’s a few kilometers. You can take a taxi there if you want. But if you take a taxi from the Dubai Marina it takes 30 minutes. But the drivers know the way and you can get there without any problems. There is also plenty of parking space where you can park your car. But you have to pay around 20 dirhams for parking there.

Shopping and Restaurants

The park is structured in such a way that there are numerous restaurants and shops. If you are hungry then you can visit one of the restaurants. You can find everything you want from pizza to burgers. But you are not allowed to bring any food or drink with you to Motiongate Dubai Park. Then there are many shops where you can buy souvenirs.

But the prices are not that cheap there. You can get the same Dubai souvenirs much cheaper in the Old Souk in Deira. But wherever there are always many tourists, the prices are of course a bit more expensive.

Lapita Hotel

There is also a hotel located directly on the premises of Dubai Parks and Resorts. It is the Lapita Hotel with 504 rooms. Since the amusement parks are far outside of Dubai’s center, you can stay there if you want. It is a very nice and new hotel. You can see the amusement parks directly from the rooms. In just a few minutes you are there and can visit them.
