Fear seekers prepare! MOTIONGATE™ Dubai’s notorious Halloween Fright Nights is back with its fourth and spookiest edition yet and promises seven weeks of terrifying experiences that will thrill the mind and chill the spine.

DUBAI, UAE, September 2021: Running from Thursday, 23 September until Saturday, 6 November 2021, the region’s largest Hollywood-inspired theme park will transform into a place right out of your darkest nightmares. At MOTIONGATE™ Dubai’s Fright Nights, guests can expect a one-way ticket to Halloween horror with terrifying activities that will bring out the park’s dark side.

As you enter MOTIONGATE™ Dubai, guests will be greeted by a terrifying maze, A haunted cinema infested by a creepy legend from the past lurking in the dark. Six guests will be allowed inside this immersive ‘Nyctophobia’ experience at a time, and they must figure their way out within six minutes!


Every Monday to Saturday from 2pm to 8pm/ 9pm there will be a 20-minute live horror show at the park’s Hollywood Theater featuring ‘The Tale of the Midnight Theater’ which is the second installment of The Shadow Watch Society Chronicles. The story is about the breathtaking world of the Shadow Watch, where sorcerers are hunted, monsters rise out of myths, and the fate of all hangs on love and betrayal.

The chills don’t end with that, there will also be another petrifying horror maze, ‘The Curse of the Music Box’ at The Underworld, where the Shadow Watch Society owns a dungeon to store and protect cursed artifacts from the creatures they hunt. Six brave guests can enter the maze at a time and explore the dungeon, but can they stay safe from the dark powers?

The Halloween activities will end on a high note each day with a Ghastly Parade just before park closing where all the Halloween characters will walk though the Studio Central area of MOTIONGATE™ Dubai providing a great photo opportunity for all visitors.

In addition to the live horror experiences, MOTIONGATE™ Dubai will also be offering child-friendly ‘not-so-spooky’ Halloween festivities so the little ones don’t miss out on the fun, including photo opportunities with favorite Halloween characters, Halloween Candy Grab and exciting Pumpkin Stories.
