‘Put a smile on their faces’

Rami Mashini, Vice-President, Sales and Marketing, Dubai Parks and Resorts, said: “It is our pleasure to partner with the KHDA to honour the education staff who have worked tirelessly throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to support Dubai’s students. It has been a difficult time for everyone as they navigate through online learning and keeping students safe and educated so we hope a free pass to a whole year of fun at our amazing parks where they can enjoy over 100 rides, shows and attractions, will help to put smiles on their faces.”

Safety first

Dubai Parks and Resorts feature “enhanced” health and safety procedures to protect guests and staff. Some of these include temperature checks prior to entry; routine deep cleaning of all areas in the parks; appropriately distanced lockers, tables and counters; and reduced capacity in restaurants, rides and shops. How to redeem the pass

To redeem the free annual park pass, teachers and school staff should visit one of the guest services counters at Dubai Parks and Resorts before February 28, 2021, and bring the unique code in the information letter given by their school, along with valid teacher ID, if applicable.

What is included?

The annual park pass is a ticket that will give school staff unlimited access to three theme parks: MOTIONGATE Dubai, BOLLYWOOD PARKS Dubai and LEGOLAND Dubai, as well as the LEGOLAND Water Park. Valid until February 28, 2022, the pass will give them access to more than 100 rides, the “world’s tallest” swing ride, the Bollywood SkyFlyer, an array of “family-friendly” attractions, and live shows and performances. Another benefit of the initiative is that teachers and school staff can purchase additional annual passes for their friends and family at a 20 per cent discount.
