Location: Riverland Dubai
Job Ref: DPR2014
Job Type: Full Time
Deadline: 20th June, 2019
At Dubai Parks and Resorts, an unforgettable journey begins as soon our guests enter the gate. Themed as a journey through time, Riverland™ Dubai comprises four distinct eras – or zones, which take visitors on a voyage across time: from an idyllic French village in the 1600s to a bustling European Exposition in the late 19th Century, New Delhi in the 1930s, and ultimately the swanky days of Los Angeles and Las Vegas in the 1950s.
At its heart is the river from which Riverland™ Dubai is named and that is central to the visitors’ experience. Water taxis, in addition to a tram, shuttle visitors to and fro, while ample casual dining terraces spill out towards the water’s edge. There are numerous opportunities to join us down by the water at Riverland™ Dubai and help us create an exciting spectacle for our guests every day!
