DUBAI, October 10, 2018

Dubai Parks and Resorts attracted over 1.96 million visitors during the first nine months of the year, an increase of 33 per cent compared to the same period last year, operator DXB Entertainments announced on Wednesday.

The growth in visitor numbers follows sustained growth in visits for the past three quarters, the statement said.

In Q3 2018, Dubai Parks and Resorts recorded over 501,000 visits, compared to 479,000 in the same period last year. August saw an increase in visits as the parks benefited from the Eid holidays, whereas September saw a slow down as the new school year started, DXB noted.

Moreover, the Lapita Hotel average occupancy jumped to 59 per cent from January to September, versus the 30 per cent occupancy reported in the same period a year earlier.

Mohamed Almulla, CEO and managing director, DXB Entertainments, said “We are pleased to progress according to our strategic plan and to deliver growth in visitor numbers, as Dubai Parks and Resorts continues to establish itself as a leading leisure and entertainment destination for the region. As we head into our peak fourth quarter we are optimistic that we will continue on this growth trajectory.”

During the quarter, Motiongate Dubai was awarded the best theme park in the UAE and the Legoland Water Park was awarded the best water park in the UAE at the Time Out Kids Awards 2018. - TradeArabia News Service
