The much-anticipated Real Madrid World theme park is now open in Dubai.

Situated within Dubai Parks and Resorts, the Middle East's largest theme park destination, it features over 40 original Real Madrid-themed experiences and attractions, spread across three zones - Champions Avenue, Celebration Plaza and Stars Avenue

Highlights include the Hala Madrid Coaster, the region's first wooden rollercoaster, Stars Flyer, which is the world's tallest amusement ride, and the adrenaline-rush rides continue with Hands Up!, raising riders high above the park before dropping them vertically back to Earth.

Guests can also take in White Hearts, a walkthrough exhibition celebrating the club's past, present and future, while the Bernabéu Experience offers fans exclusive access to the Santiago Bernabéu stadium locker room, the centre of the pitch and a secret sanctuary guarding the 14 football European cups and the 11 basketball European Cups.

Football fans can participate in training camps and programmes where those aged six and over can learn news skills and teamwork through a warm-up session, followed by learning some basic tricks, finishing off with a short team-based game to showcase their skills.

La Fabrica Training Pitch is a playground for guests of all ages with lots of footballs and mini-training equipment to practice shots and train like the stars, while The Real Challenge features family games and digital sport interactives.

The experience is rounded out with over 15 daily shows offering interactive football freestyle street shows to full-cast performances.

Fernando Eiroa, CEO of Dubai Holding Entertainment, said "The world’s first and only Real Madrid-theme park celebrates the world’s love for sports and theme parks, presenting a unique adventure that has never been done or seen before. Real Madrid World will showcase the winning spirit of Real Madrid, embodying the deep passion that brings the club to life."
