    Meh
    My experience at Motiongate Dubai theme park was disappointing. Right from the entrance, I encountered rude and ignorant staff, and there were no free buggy rides from the parking lot. To make matters worse, I had to wait for more than 15 minutes for a taxi ride, which was more expensive than taking an Uber for the short distance to the theme park entrance. I found the height restrictions to be very strict, without any wiggle room for just 1cm difference. This was frustrating because my child was just a little bit too short for certain rides. It seemed that the park had forgotten that people have little ones, and there wasn't a single ride available for my 2 year old. It felt like a big oversight on the part of the theme park. Overall, I had a disappointing experience at Motiongate Dubai theme park. I hope that the management takes these criticisms seriously and makes improvements to ensure that visitors have a more enjoyable experience in the future.

    What an amazing place. Efficient. Rides amazing and catered to all ages. Staff were efficient and friendly. The only big issue is cost: for all but wealthy visitors from first world countries the pricing is prohibitive. It would be good to give more people access

    Great time, small park
    We had a great time, very quiet so no queues we did one roller coaster 8 times and never had to wait. One big roller coaster shut but that was fine. Not many food outlets open as it was so quiet. Small park easy to walk around. We found the staff friendly.

    Good Day out
    Went there on a Tuesday and we're lucky enough to reach just before gates opened, 11am. No queues at all and managed to do all the rides within 3hrs. The rides are good and the place is fine though the food is exorbitantly priced. The souvenir shops, all over Dubai's theme parks are also exorbitantly priced, hardly and customers. If they lowered the prices it'd be more attractive to the guests. Can't justify a regular pizza for Dhs100!
    Dear 88mehulm, Thank you for your review, we are glad that you had an amazing day at Motiongate Dubai. Your feedback on the pricing is well received & will be looked into. Looking forward to welcoming you again. Best Regards, Motiongate Guest Services Management Team

    VERY HAPPY WITH YOUR EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE
    My son and I have visited the Motiongate Dubai for a few times before and this time, on 30th of June, we wanted to visit any gift shops at the Motiongate to buy some gifts during the Eid holidays. We had this opportunity to meet Mr. Ronnel Ancheta as our guidance advisor. Mr. Ronnel was very pleasant and very polite while he was very acknowledged as a professional salesman about the items which I was interested to buy. I would like to appreciate his professional customer service and great help. Meeting wonderful staff like Mr. Ronnel really make us happy to come back to visit and do shopping at the Motiongate Dubai again. Thank you so much to make our visit very pleasant.

    Good event for kids
    Great for kids. Lots of fun activities to keep them entertained. Food prices and curio shops are exorbitant..also, if you're a day visitor, no clear.markungs of times for shuttle from taxi drop off to entrance (was a long walk in Dubai summer heat and became unbearable for kids)

    Exceptional Service by Multilingual Salesperson, Vishnu
    Hello, I would like to extend my highest praise and gratitude to Vishnu, the salesperson who assisted us at the Motion Gate amusement park in Dubai. His proficiency in both English and Russian significantly enhanced our shopping experience. The fact that we could converse in our native language was a delightful surprise, making the process of purchasing mugs much more engaging and personalized. Vishnu's professional service, language skills, and unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction are truly exceptional. His contributions greatly enriched our visit, and we eagerly anticipate returning in the future. Best regards.

    Good One
    The said attraction is good, but not in hot summer. The best time to visit is from november to march. the advantage of visiting in summer is less people and you dont have to spend time in waiting in the queue or spending money for taking Q-Fast ticket. Due to the sand strom the day before we visited the bullet train and some other rides were closed, some of the attraction such as circus, etc was under rennovation. Except on staff from popcorn stand all other staff was found helpful and cooperative. Overall it is recommendable

It was a great and wonderful experiencing for us and especially with our kids!!:) We loved and enjoyed the motiongate and all the parks inside. Our favourite is Madagascar, Dragon and the Dinosaur show. We love the food. Also, the staff are very friendly and very accommodating. I would like to especially thanks and mention Nikka and Abbassi for assisting us with our inquiries and needs. :)) We will definitely come back and recommend it to our friends.

Very good theme park, great variety of rides.
We arrived first thing on Monday morning, there were little to no queues until mid afternoon which meant we didn’t waste any time. We were told on arrival 2 rides were unavailable. Lots of choices inside/outside the park for places to eat. Take note you will get very wet on Cloudy with a chance of meatballs: river expedition, it does warn you however it is a very good ride. Luckily they have ponchos for sale for 10 AED when in the queue for the ride and stand in dryers outside are available for 20 AED.

Absolutely appalling organisation resulting in ridiculous waiting times at every attraction and food stalls. Misinformation about waiting times - 70 minutes at a ride iinstead of 30 advertised - and the extra cost fast lane constantly cutting in. Andes up having one terrible burger (waiting time 1h) and 2 rides on a 3 hour stay for total cost of 1800dhs for the family. What a &@:):& place

"I am shocked by how bad my experience here was today, it's extremely frustrating to see a Dubai theme park steep so low in terms of customer service and experience. I paid 660 AED for 2 tickets to go here, on entrance I was warned that 3 rides would be unavailable due to maintenance, although this was frustrating I was happy to still visit the park as there are plenty of other rides, I was very wrong. We started out with John Wick, after getting seated we realised that the ride was after breaking and got stuck with extremely tight restraints for 15 mins until they resolved the issue, after this were told that the ride was broken. We then went to the Bullet train roller-coaster, this was also marked 'unavailable'. Annoyed, we decided to go to Madagascar Mad Pursuit, I couldn't believe it this was also 'unavailable' keep in mind none of these rides were the ones that were mentioned upon entrance to the park itself, at this point after just 40 minutes inside the park I decided to voice my concerns to the staff members, they were basically useless and offered us fast passes, even though none of the rides were working?? Rishek in particular and one other lady were extremely sarcastic and condenceding considering we spent a LOT of money to get into the theme park. I've personally never seen or been treated this poorly in a theme park and have been to all of the ones in Abu Dhabi and several parks in Europe we weren't offered a refund and also weren't offered a change of date/credit. I would highly recommend not going here!!

Dear 199dylane, Thank you for sharing your feedback with us, and we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience you experienced due to several closed rides on the day of your visit. However, it is important to note that inclement weather conditions are something which we are unable to control, and when they occur, what we can control is the safety of our guest, which is always our number one priority. Your feedback is invaluable to us, and we want to assure you that our management is actively working to ensure that our esteemed guests do not feel like they had poor value for their money whenever they visit our park. Once again, we apologize for any inconvenience caused during your visit, and we can assure you that the same would be the case on your next visit. Thanks and regards, Motiongate Guest Services

Terrible experience!

They are selling tickets for 330 dhr - and only 4 rides are working (the signature and best one are closed ).
They lied and doesn’t want to refund ticket or change it for other day.

Very poor and cheap approach.
You are loosing clients fooling them.
Was thinking to call police for money fraud - since I feel I was cheated and I pay for stuff what was not provide to us.

Dear BarbaraD197, Thanks so much for the review, and we are truly sorry you had a bad experience while visiting our park. Your situation was an uncommon occurrence which was most likely due to the inclement weather conditions which the park experienced few days prior to your visit. However, we make it a point of duty to always inform our guests of unavailable rides, both on our websites and at the gate. Never the less, we sincerely apologize, and hope that you could give us another opportunity to make things right. Best Regards, Motiongate Guest Services Management Team
