    Can anyone tell where exactly the Marvel Adventure Park is supposed to be located here?

    Several ambitious theme parks planned for the vast Dubailand development on the outskirts of the city were shelved after running into funding problems even before the onset of the 2008 financial crisis. But rebounding confidence in the emirate's tourism and property markets is encouraging developers to take a fresh look at the market.

    Universal Studios is earmarked for Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid City by Emaar and Dubai Holding, while Sheikh Mohammed's own development company Meraas plans to develop five theme parks in Jebel Ali.

    Meraas' Dubai Adventure Studios fun park, plans for which were announced in December last year, will anchor the new destination and is expected to be completed by 2014. This will be followed by a theme park based around Bollywood movies, a park themed around water and marine life, a children's theme park and a "night safari" park themed around the adventures of the wild desert.

    Despite a number of high-profile developments remaining unfinished in the wake of the economic downturn in 2008, Hani Al Hamli, secretary general of Dubai Economic Council, said Dubai had access to funding to finance these new projects.

    “We do have our own resources and way to finance… We are sure that these projects will be achieved,” he said.

    When pushed on where these funds would come from, Al Hamli did not go into specifics, commenting that financing would occur via sources within the UAE.

    “We have our own resources in the emirates. I don’t want to disclose… This is managed by the finance department.

    “When it comes to resources, we are part of the UAE and we have our own networks… There [are] neighbours who have massive natural resources. At the end of the day, [in] the UAE there is solidarity and a good governance and leadership,” he said.

    In contrast to its oil-rich neighbour Abu Dhabi, Dubai's government does not have the large fiscal reserves needed to finance large-scale projects.

    As far as I am concerned all these announcements have got nothing to do with Dubailand:

    A new city is to be built in Dubai which will feature the world's largest mall, a theme park complex and 100 hotels.
    As well as the gigantic Mall of the World, the city will also house 100 hotels, a 455-acre park and an international family attraction in collaboration with Universal Studios.
    The family tourism section will be set up in collaboration with Universal Studios and include more than 100 hotel facilities to meet the needs of visitors to the region. It will also house a US$2.7bn (2.1bn euro, £1.7bn) complex made up of five theme parks including one based around India's Bollywood cinema industry. There will also be an adventure park featuring Hollywood brands, a marine park, a children's park and a night safari.

    Blah, blah, blah. Does anybody take this seriously?

    Why does everybody refer to a Universal Studios theme park? Where is the official announcement of a Universal THEME PARK being built? The press reports only talk about a mall for which Universal Studios acts as an adviser.
