The Factory of Dreams brings the magic of Los Blancos to life, the Goal Coaster allows you to race against rival teams, and the Bernabéu Experience lets you explore the locker room, sacred pitch, and the trophy cabinet of Santiago Bernabéu Stadium.

The re-branded park takes over the site formally occupied by Bollywood Parks Dubai and is home to several immersive experiences. On the Champions Bus, you can tour Madrid’s famous landmarks while over at Magic Cleats, you can lace up your boots and practice scoring that winning goal.

Rollercoaster lovers will be pleased to hear that the Hala Madrid: The Coaster, a ride originally constructed as Bombay Express for Bollywood Parks Dubai, will finally open to the public. This wooden coaster offers epic twists and turns.

Elsewhere, dining options include Hala Madrid Restaurant for a Madridista fiesta and Academy Cafe with a charming outdoor setting.

Fernando Eiroa, Chief Executive Officer at Dubai Holding Entertainment, explained, “We look forward to engaging sports fans, families, and children in new and exciting ways and supporting an active youth community across the UAE. This project is in consonance with our vision to contribute to enhancing Dubai as a leading tourist destination.”

Real Madrid can trace its origins back to 1902, as football was introduced to Madrid by academics and students from institutions including Oxford and Cambridge. In 2021, it was named the second highest-earning football club, and today it is worth an estimated $5.1 billion.

The world’s first Real Madrid theme park will join Motiongate Dubai and Legoland Dubai and Lapita Hotel at Dubai Parks and Resorts. Tickets for Real Madrid World Dubai start from AED 295 and are available via Platinumlist.
