    Amusement parks, cultural centre to feature in new $490m Dubai project
    By Staff writer
    Tuesday, 10 January 2017 2:54 PM

    Plans have been revealed for a AED1.8 billion ($490 million) development in Dubai to feature amusement parks, apartments, shops, restaurants and a cultural centre.

    Ento Capital Managment, an investment company licensed by the Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA), said it is geared to reconstruct the Wonder Land project, located on Al Riyadh Street.

    Hayssam El Masri, CEO of Ento Capital, said the project is slated to start by the end of March and would take three years to build.

    The 2.4 million sq ft project will be executed in phases and will also include two furnished apartment blocks, he said, without giving further details.

    He added that Wonder Park is currently in the process of obtaining preliminary approvals from Dubai Municipality.

    “The project will be one of the most attractive entertainment destinations in the region, attracting visitors from all over the world and enhancing the status of the emirate on the world’s map of leading entertainment centres,” said El Masri.

    He added that the company will enter into a number of partnerships with real estate firms for the project.

    SeaWorld San Diego announced plans for a new launched steel roller coaster called "Electric Eel" that will open in 2018. The roller coaster is similar in design to Tempesto at Busch Gardens Williamsburg. The coaster will reach speeds of up to 62 mph and a height of 150 feet making it SeaWorld San Diego's fastest and tallest coaster.







    Electric Eel, with its high-intensity thrill component, should help solidify the park’s appeal among teens and young adults, Hannes said. It is meant to be the second phase of the Ocean Explorer attraction, which has a strong educational component and is oriented more to families. It will also feature an eel aquarium.

    Ocean Explorer will be located on the southeast side of the park where Animal Connections had been and before that, the old Clydesdale barn and pasture. Both Ocean Explorer and the coaster, which will be where Arctic Plaza now is, will occupy an area west of the Journey to Atlantis ride.

    Yesterday (January 8, 2016), SeaWorld San Diego had their final theatrical orca show. The show stadium will now be closed through May 2017 while a new stage is constructed with a more "natural" appearance. The new stage will feature extensive rock work, waterfalls and artificial trees and a large screen called the "Infinity Screen" that will extend across the stage displaying information that corresponds to the new educational presentation that will replace the theatrical shows. Construction of the new Orca Encounter stage began today with crane set-up.

    SALALAH BEACH WATERPARK
    Bringing in new entertainment to its ever growing Salalah Beach destination, Muriya is introducing an iconic waterpark in the Dhofar Governorate. The all‐new aquatic experience promises to deliver sensory thrills unlike any other.

    Expected to be operational end of 2017, the waterpark will be built on an area of 35,000 sqm and will include diverse amenities catering to all ages. Up to 1500 people daily will have the chance to body surf, dive under the crashing waves, and swim the day away in the wave pool, or float along in the leisure river. Another prime attraction will be the children’s area, featuring a large water play structure with slides, waterfalls and features that will provide fun for the entire family.

    The waterpark will also offer various rides designed for thrill‐seekers and families alike, including a mix of body and tube slides with both open and closed flumes. Whether it is a weekend trip for some quality time with the family or tourists unwinding after a long journey, Muriya’s new waterpark in Salalah will provide an attraction never before experienced in Oman.
