Sony Pictures Studio and Smurfs Zone theme park to open in Dubai


Some new details have been uncovered as to what will be featured in the “Motiongate Dubai” theme park. The park will be built by Dubai Parks and Resorts and they will partner with Sony to bring the Sony Pictures Studio and Smurfs Zone to life.

The new park will feature 12 themed attractions inside the park. Some of the franchises coming to the park include ‘Partly Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs’, ‘Hotel Transylvania’, ‘Ghostbusters’, ‘The Green Hornet’, ‘Underworld’, ‘Zombieland’ to name a few. And yes, those little blue Smurfs are even getting an attraction of their own.

The park will feature 4 themed areas including the Sony Pictures Studio and Smurfs Zone which will immerse guests in some of the biggest names in Hollywood.

Gregory Economos, senior vice president, global consumer products, Sony Pictures Entertainment, said: “We are very excited to partner with Dubai Parks and Resorts to create compelling attractions that extend our most iconic brands into the themed attractions.”

This new park is part of an expansive new themed entertainment area in Dubai that will also include Bollywood Parks Dubai, LEGOLAND Dubai and motiongate Dubai. A family-themed hotel called Lapita Hotel, will also be built in the surrounding area.

All of these new additions are to help Dubai become an entertainment destination for families from around the world.
