Opened in December 2016, MOTIONGATE is Dubai's Hollywood-inspired theme park. It's split into five different lands; Smurf Village, Studio Central, Columbia Pictures, DreamWorks Animation, and Lionsgate (due to open this autumn). Unlike LEGOLAND, there are plenty of hair-raising rides for thrill-seekers to get their teeth into, including the Green Hornet and Madagascar's Mad Pursuit roller coasters.
It also features the Kung Fu Panda Experience, and live-action shows, Ghostbusters Block Party, and Step Up, a high-energy music and dance show aimed at pre-teens. The long-anticipated Lionsgate area focuses on two Hunger Games-themed rides; the Capitol Bullet Train, a dizzyingly high roller coaster, and Panem Aerial Tour, a high tech 3D ride over the fictional city.
