    The photos below are off Emirates Road, and that area plus the area with the Universal arch is not owned by Al Ahli. They own the stretch of land just past the Outlet Mall, ie further up Al Ain Road. The temporary events venue Autism Rocks Arena is on their land and can be seen on Googlemaps. It is close to the abandoned Universal site with the circular berms, but immediately adjacent to Al Ain Road instead.

  2. 20th Century Fox World Dubai will be delayed until 2020.

    Futhermore, the Doha Oasis will open that year in Qatar, A 20th Century Fox park is planned for 2020 and a SeaWorld park in 2022.

    The Fox World Dubai / former Universal Dubailand site today:






  4. Next to Dubai Outlet Mall. It's where they were originally going to put Universal Studios back in 2008. The Universal arch might still be there, though I heard they were going to take it down (finally).

  5. What was the exact proposed location for the Fox Dubai park? Can anyone pinpoint on Google Maps?

    Just a few notes:

    The Fox Studios theme park has been more or less dead in the dirt since it's announcement at the end of 2015. Buzz has gone radio silent and there has been no movement as far as construction. Fox Studios was originally planned to be an entire land at Motiongate Dubai theme park, joining the likes of DreamWorks Animation and Sony Pictures Studios. However, Fox dropped out of the IP running with plans to make an entire theme park in the region. So it is highly unlikely that Fox Studios will be part of the Dubai Parks and Resorts development. This open IP space at Motiongate Dubai was filled by Lionsgate. A little before opening of Motiongate Dubai, the Sony Pictures Studios land got changed to Columbia Pictures.

    Miral Asset Management is the developer for the Warner Brothers theme park in Abu Dhabi. They are also responsible for the development of Ferrari World, Yas Water World and the upcoming Sea World Abu Dhabi.

  7. It could be the 5th park at Dubai Parks and Resorts since they did say that they are working on another park after six flags dubai is built.

  8. Hearing talks that Al Ahli lost the rights for fox, and that a new firm has inked the deal and my sources say that this firm has an existing Themepark already built, so the only company that have currently opened theme parks are Aldar, Dubai Parks, and IMG, is there any company I'm missing?

    Aldar has warner brother which is already one of the top 5 movie production company, Dubai Parks has Sony also on the top 5 so there would be conflict of interest there, IMG has announced their park 2 and from the map it doesn't look like there is any free space for an additional zone, and I doubt fox would want only a zone.

    Any ideas people?

    Has there been any further update on this?

  10. Whoops. It seems that theme park might be pushed back its opening year to 2020.

    Also in the pipeline are a Warner Bros theme park on Abu Dhabi's Yas Island, due to open in 2018, and a Fox-branded theme park, with attractions based on TV and film titles such as "Ice Age" and "The Simpsons", scheduled for a 2020 opening.
