Not just Bol­ly­wood, there will be plenty in store for Hol­ly­wood fans as well at Dubai Parks & Re­sorts. When it opens next month, Motiongate will be the Mid­dle East’s largest Hol­ly­wood-in­spired theme park and will fea­ture three of the big­gest film stu­dios in the world: Sony Pic­tures Stu­dios, DreamWorks An­i­ma­tion and Lion­s­gate. Vis­i­tors will get to en­joy mem­o­rable ex­pe­ri­ences in­spired by pop­u­lar films from the three stu­dios— Cloudy with a Chance of Meat­balls, Ghost­busters, Hotel Tran­syl­va­nia, The Smurfs, The Green Hor­net, Un­der­world,

Zom­bieland, How to Train Your Dragon, Kung Fu Panda, Mada­gas­car, Shrek, The

Hunger Games, etc. Around 27 themed rides and at­trac­tions will be spread across five zones: DreamWorks, Lion­s­gate, Sony Picture Stu­dios, Smurfs Vil­lage and Stu­dio Cen­tral. But that’s not all. There will also be nine fam­ily-friendly restau­rants, 15 themed re­tail outlets and a multi-pur­pose theatre, with a seat­ing ca­pac­ity of 1,000. Rides in­clude roller­coaster ex­pe­ri­ences like the Capi­tol Bul­let Train. Based on The Hunger

Games, the su­per­sonic ride is de­signed to hurl vis­i­tors back­wards, for­wards and up­side down.
