Combine the universal appeal of LEGOs with all of the excitement of a water park at LEGOLAND Dubai, part of the Dubai Parks & Resorts. Aside from the usual attractions such as water slides, wave riders Legoland offers a few attractions that make the most of its unique concept. The park’s Build-a-Boat station lets you put together your own little LEGO boat that can take to the water (if you’ve put it together correctly). Or if you would prefer to be waterbound yourself, then you can head to the Build-a-Raft River, where you can construct a life-size LEGO raft.
