    Good event for kids
    Great for kids. Lots of fun activities to keep them entertained. Food prices and curio shops are exorbitant..also, if you're a day visitor, no clear.markungs of times for shuttle from taxi drop off to entrance (was a long walk in Dubai summer heat and became unbearable for kids)

    Exceptional Service by Multilingual Salesperson, Vishnu
    Hello, I would like to extend my highest praise and gratitude to Vishnu, the salesperson who assisted us at the Motion Gate amusement park in Dubai. His proficiency in both English and Russian significantly enhanced our shopping experience. The fact that we could converse in our native language was a delightful surprise, making the process of purchasing mugs much more engaging and personalized. Vishnu's professional service, language skills, and unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction are truly exceptional. His contributions greatly enriched our visit, and we eagerly anticipate returning in the future. Best regards.

    Good One
    The said attraction is good, but not in hot summer. The best time to visit is from november to march. the advantage of visiting in summer is less people and you dont have to spend time in waiting in the queue or spending money for taking Q-Fast ticket. Due to the sand strom the day before we visited the bullet train and some other rides were closed, some of the attraction such as circus, etc was under rennovation. Except on staff from popcorn stand all other staff was found helpful and cooperative. Overall it is recommendable

    Poor value for money as all the good rides closed with no ticket price reduction
    Don’t visit in August. No shows, Hunger Games rides area never opened, John Wicks and Madegascar ride also closed. Entrance price needs to reflect this. only good thing- queues are very short as the place is deserted. As a result place is lacking in atmosphere. Might be better in the winter

    Great day out with our kids
    I was worried due to all the negative comments but we really enjoyed our day. I don't think it's worth full price but with "kids go free" it made it worthwhile. We have kids 8, 5 and 3. They loved it all! We thought it was a beautiful park and amazing how so much of it is in AC'd buildings. By the end of the day our feet were fine and we didn't feel sick from heat exhaustian at all. Best part was absolutely no lines this time of the year. All of the rides we wanted to go on were fully functional... no issues or delay at all. My 3 year old could have gone on many rides they deemed him too small for but we still easily made it work around that taking him elsewhere and turns with the other kids. Found a taxi no problem at the end of our day. We went from around 12 to 5:30 ... did all the rides appropriate for our kids ages and all the little play places were so different and great too.
    Dear newbeeee, Thank you for your valuable review & feedback. We are delighted to hear about your experience at Motiondgate Dubia & looking forward to welcoming you and your family again. Best Regards, Motiongate Guest Services Management Team.

    Pretty decent but depends on age of your kids. A lot of walking so be prepared if you go during Dubai hot months.
    Pretty cool place but depends on the age of your kids. I took a 1 and 5 year old so didn't really have much for them. They were too young to go on the rides. It would be a perfect place for slightly older kids though. None the less, was pretty good experience. Plenty of attractions to see. Can be difficult walking to all the different rides in the Dubai heat (We went in late August). The tickets can be quite expensive but if you stay at LegoLand hotel for 3 nights or more, you get free tickets to LegoLand and Motiongate (highly recommend). We ate at Mr Ping's restaurant in Kung Fu Panda area. The food was terrible. Portion sizes were good but just didn't taste good at all. Even the fried shrimp was extremely crispy. Worth noting, if you are staying in LegoLand hotel, you get 20% off (the staff don't actively share this).

    A Fantastic Motiongate Experience, Thanks to Jaypratap! I highly appreciate Mr Jaypratap And special Thanks. And I defin
    My recent visit to Motiongate in Dubai was an absolute blast, and it was made even better by the incredible assistance of Jaypratap. Jaypratap's warm welcome and expert guidance throughout the park ensured that I didn't miss a thing. His knowledge of the park's attractions was impressive, and he made my visit stress-free and enjoyable. One of the highlights of my day was the opportunity to meet animated characters, and Jaypratap made it all happen seamlessly. I had a blast taking pictures with my favorite movie characters, creating unforgettable memories. I also thoroughly enjoyed watching the King Julien show, which was a fantastic addition to my day at Motiongate. Motiongate itself is a captivating theme park with a wide range of attractions and stunning movie-themed landscapes. It's a must-visit for anyone seeking a day filled with excitement and entertainment. I want to express my gratitude to Jaypratap for his exceptional service, which made my visit even more special. He is a true asset to the park, and I highly recommend Motiongate to all seeking a day of adventure and unforgettable moments. Thank you, Jaypratap, for your outstanding hospitality!

    Weird with some great bits
    We received complimentary access due to staying at the Lapita resort for a week. We visited mid week noting that the park opened at 11am but there was a lackadaisical attitude to opening rides and I would not recommend busting a gut to get there for 11am! It was eerily empty while we were there with a fraction of the footfall I would expect during half term. Still it did mean we whizzed around the rides really quickly once they finally opened!! Some rides were unavailable all week (Mad Pursuit for example) but we really enjoyed The Dragon Gliders ride which was excellent, The Smurfs Studio Tour, Shrek ride and Now You See Me rollercoaster. It’s good that the whole Dreamworks area is indoors when the heat becomes too much. Toilet facilities spotless. No free water / refill stations. Staff rather ambivalent to guests I thought and our second visit at the weekend was ridiculous as hardly any rides were open by 12.30! I felt sorry for people who weren’t staying at Lapita who would have travelled to the park and paid an entrance fee only to be confronted with 80% of the rides not yet open, unavailable or down due to technical difficulties!!! I’m surprised the studio names (Lionsgate, Columbia Pictures, Dreamworks etc.) allow this park to be run like this. It must be making a massive loss overall and I suspect it’s hard to find decent staff willing to stick it out. Finally the Halloween theming for the Hollywood was pretty adult and not suitable for young children and we didn’t see any special events but I suspect the park only came to life at night after we left.
    Dear MoleAdventures, Thank you for sharing your honest feedback with us. We set a high standard for ourselves, and while we are happy that you enjoyed some of our rides which you mentioned, we’re so sorry to hear that not all of your expectations were met in your interaction with our business on your second visit. We can’t fix the past but you have our commitment to improve the way our staff serves every customer. Until then, please accept our sincerest apologies while we look forward to another chance to earn your business. Best Regards, Motiongate Guest Services Management Team

    Motiongate lovely family day out
    On arrival, we parked at the large car park just outside Riverland. We took the free mini bus transfer to the entrance of Motiongate. All three parks (Motiongate, Legoland Dubai and Legoland Water Park) are within walking distance from the car park. However, free regular transfer is available to the parks. Straight into the center of the park where Studio Central is located. Hollywood Theatre is where some great live shows and entertainment take place. The park has 4 themed areas: Columbia Pictures, Smurfs Village, Dreamworks and Lionsgate. Columbia Pictures: our favourite ride was The Green Hornet: High Speed Chase 🎢 kids wanted to on it several times, luckily there was no queue as the park had just opened. Smurfs Village: we had a tour behind the scenes of the Smurfs’ movie set. Nice and chilled ride to get away from the sun and have a little rest. Dreamworks: our family favourite ride was definitely Dragon Gliders. We got to see some of the park from above, it’s a moderate trill ride and lovely for families. Lionsgate had a few rides rated “high trill level” Now you see me: High Roller, and John Wick: Open Contract. Toilets are available around the park and just outside are the water fountains - so remember to refil your bottle. If you have any more questions check my Instagram mrsivyhyde and get in touch

Went on a Monday in June - taxi cost from Al Barsha 70 aed.

At the gate pay point there is no shelter from the sun and although barely anyone there we had a long wait due to the people in front of us.

The park wasn’t very full but most of the rides were open and ready.

My annoyance was with the fact that no maps with the required information was given to us with the tickets - we asked and were informed the next person at gate would supply but they didn’t have any either.

The info map is extremely needed as without it you have no idea what type of ride you are abt to go on ie : Madagascar ride - you would think oh this is a kiddie cartoon so won’t be too bad but omg it was the fastest rollercoaster in the park !

I did enquire with the staff abt why we were being strapped in, their reply was to see everything - not really correct and luckily I didnt have any potential health problems but all the same a ride I wouldve preferred to avoid.

Shops are reasonably priced, bought a few nice items.

We eventually got a map after an employee dug around in a drawer - so many people asked us where we got it from so this definately needs sorting.

We visited motiongate late May so it was very hot, this meant there wasn't a que for any of the rides it was brilliant, mostly indoors anyway. Our favourite ride was Madagascar we went on this 3 times, very fast alot of fun. All the rides were great, I love scary rides but the John Wick ride was too much for me, only did this once. We met various characters walking round and most of the staff were lovely. My only moan was the kids really wanted slushies and they were only available in a huge reusable expensive cup that wasn't allowed on every ride, that was annoying. Had a fab time, will definitely visit again.
