With several new attractions and experiences, Bollywood Parks Dubai is scheduled to reopen this month.

The theme park will reopen on Thursday, January 21, with nine new rides, including the world’s tallest swing ride called the Bollywood Skyflyer, which stands 140 meters high. Wheel of Stars, a 55-metre-tall Ferris wheel, Taxi No 1, an 88-metre-long roller coaster inspired by Mumbai’s famous cabs, and Abraa ka Dabree, a swinging abra ride, are also among the new openings.

Other coming attractions include water-based ride Mansoon Masti, the spinning Rodeo Ki Sawari, inspired by the traditional Indian rodeo experience, and Hawa Hawai, a ride that simulates the feeling of flying on a hang glider.

Rounding out the new launches is Tanga No 13, a ride that centers on a magic trip around the Gateway of India in ornate horse-drawn carriages, and The Rocket, a child-friendly, space-shuttle-themed ride. There will also be an expansion to the Mela Junction section of the park, which will host a new Indian restaurant called Namaste India.

“After extensive enhancements, the park has a whole new offering for 2021 that includes new food and beverage outlets, shopping experiences and world-record holding rides,” says chief operating officer Ahmad Hussain Bin Essa.

“Each new ride has been designed to give our guests an authentic and immersive experience which will transport them to the very heart of India, without having to leave Dubai.” The park will also welcome a wooden roller coaster, the Bombay Express, later this year, added Hussain Bin Essa.

Tickets for the park will be available on a buy one, get one free offer, priced at $75, until Wednesday, February 10.

Safety measures are in place across all Dubai Parks and Resorts attractions, with visitors required to wear face masks, pre-book tickets online and maintain social distancing, while rides will operate with reduced capacity.
