Dubai – Mubasher: DXB Entertainments on Thursday announced that Dubai Parks and Resorts has welcomed about 760,000 visits in the first quarter of 2019, down 11% year-on-year from nearly 851,000 visits, according to a statement.
The reduction in the number of visitors during the project’s second full year of operations is “a common trend for any theme park business following its first full year of operations,” CEO and managing director of DXB Entertainments, Mohamed Almulla, said.
Dubai Park and Resorts, the region’s largest integrated theme park destination, has benefited from the high number of local visitors in 2018 on the back of the successful launch of the first annual pass programme and competitive resident pricing.
Moreover, Dubai Park and Resorts’ first hotel, the Lapita Hotel, registered a healthy growth in average occupancy rate to 72% in Q1-19, compared to 62% in the year-ago period.
Almulla revealed plans to increase the number of international visitors to the parks and hotels of DXB Entertainments.
Above 1,300 hotel rooms are planned to be available by 2020, as the Rove Hotel and LEGOLAND Hotel will open in 2019 and 2020, respectively, he noted.
