    This is an Emirati cultural thing that they are never realistic on numbers or dates because they are under tremendous pressure from the Prime Minister's office to meet 'fantasyland' KPIs (key performance indicators) and supply never-ending sunny reports and paperwork of progress and positive news.

    I doubt most of us are surprised that this is being delayed. If I were a betting person, I would bet that the Nov and Dec dates are missed as well.

    My thinking is a large portion will open in January and ongoing work will continue through 2017 on motiongate and Bollywood. Maybe by Holiday 2018 they will be fully complete.

    Don't book a flight until all three parks are open and all rides are functioning properly.

    I would be worried on their share prices on Monday

    But DPR CEO quote sounds very familiar

    Here is a quote from the CEO of IMG Worlds:

    “You have got one chance to open the park and we wanted that experience to be perfect because the expectation is very high, the market is very competitive and we want the day of opening to put us on the global map as a theme park operator.”

    And this is the quote from DPR CEO:

    “We are focused on delivering a destination which exceeds international standards on every level – from guest experience to state-of-the-art rides and attractions and the highest of safety standards – and we want to make sure we take the time to get everything just right and launch a destination the UAE and our shareholders can be truly proud of."

    Also when they say not all the attraction will be open... Does that mean I am paying 285aed to watch them build their rides?

    It may "open".... but a lot of the sections and/or rides wont be "ready". Big difference. Most people are hopeful but from their press releases, be realistic.

    Yet, we're not talking of 2 or 3 years delays like IMG Worlds of Adventure, but 2 weeks (for two of the parks and the hotel) and 90 days for the bigger one... and as you said, one of the parks and the entertainment zones will be opened on day 1.

    I'm not sure they can't follow a plan, it's more that they are a bit too ambitious to begin with. They built this thing in what, two years?
    If the plan is too ambitious to be followed, then it's not a plan. You have to keep your goals realistic and above all, not announce any release dates.

    (By the way: I don't wonder why LEGOLAND is the only one to open. Merlin has a fully-proven concept and knows how to design parks in very ambitious time frames by a heavy reuse of concepts and rides. DPR can be happy to have this. Otherwise, the 31st would be a disaster.)

    What is the source of this quote please? I'm interested to see it as this is the first I have heard of it and cannot find any information on the official website or press releases.
