Go behind the scenes at Motiongate Dubai with a new construction video.

Orlando is home to two major movie-based theme parks, but soon the United Arab Emirates will open another Hollywood-inspired attraction, and you can go behind the scenes of Motiongate Dubai with a behind the scenes video.

When Motiongate Dubai opens in October 2016, it will boast 27 rides and attractions spread across 1.9 million square feet. The park will be broken into 5 zones, with themed areas representing the Hollywood studios DreamWorks Animation (Shrek, Madagascar, How to Train Your Dragon, Kung Fu Panda), Sony Pictures Studios (Ghostbusters, Hotel Transylvania, Green Hornet, Underworld, Zombieland Smurfs), and Lionsgate (Step Up, The Hunger Games).
Here is a video released by Motiongate Dubai showing off the construction progress, and previewing the upcoming attraction:
