It also focuses on Education and Learning and various parks have rides or areas where gardens, driving schools, boating schools, fire academies exist thereby giving a wholesome experience to its visitors. The rides are made to appear as though they were built using LEGO bricks. The driving school, for example, is a popular ride where children can drive tiny electric cars that give mock driving licenses after completion.
While Dubai has its own LEGO-based THEME PARK known as LEGOLAND Dubai which is said to have over 40 rides while the LEGOLAND Water Park has 20 slides. The Hotel is under development and is expected to be up and running by mid-2020. The said hotel is to be built around 300,000 square feet.
