    There is a rumour circulating about a 4th park for Universal Orlando and it looks like Nintendo building might be being held off in Universal Studios whilst this new park is considered.

    To recap, the Super Nintendo World construction was going to include the Mushroom Kingdom as a central hub with a recreation of Princess Peach’s Castle, a Mario Kart AR attraction, a Yoshi unimover experience, various dining spots and shops and a Donkey Kong Tropical Island themed space complete with a Donkey Kong indoor-outdoor coaster.

    There has been no activity since the permits were filed. This is unusual and likely indicative that the plan for Super Nintendo World at Universal Orlando Resort has changed. Credit where credit is due, the folks over at Theme Park University were the first to pick up on this, as well as publicly state that the Nintendo plans that leaked that included Kirby and The Legend of Zelda were outdated by the time they had been uncovered. That’s right, the permits filed in May, June and July of 2017 did not include Zelda or Kirby.
    So what’s the plan for Super Nintendo World at Universal Orlando? It’s still being developed, but the intent is rumored to be to transition Super Nintendo World over to Universal Orlando’s rumored third theme park (or fourth, if you include Volcano Bay). A source has disclosed that the Mushroom Kingdom will still serve as the central hub for this third park.

    Glad to see the progress below as figures from the sites this week have been worrying.

    Dubai Parks and Resorts — which includes Motiongate Dubai, Bollywood Parks Dubai, and Legoland Dubai — reported 2.3 million visitors last year, with 796,000 coming in the fourth quarter, when the weather is better in the United Arab Emirates. However, that works out to fewer than 9,000 visitors a day across the three parks during their busiest quarter.
    DXB Entertainments, the company that owns the Dubai Parks and Resorts complex, has announced that it lost Dh1.11 billion (US$302 million) in 2017
    The Dubai parks averaged slightly more than 2,000 visitors per park per day over the year last year. We do not know the actual breakdown between the parks, however.

    New artwork plus Disney put a stop to the rumours that they were heading for a name change for Hollywood Studios.

    In response to the recent unsubstantiated rumors swirling around the internet that the name of Disney’s Hollywood Studios would be changing, Disney stated today that “the Disney’s Hollywood Studios name will remain the same for the foreseeable future since we are immersing our guests in a place where imagined worlds of Hollywood unfold around them from movies and music, to television and theater”.

    DPR have released their visitor figures from 2017. They are, not surprisingly, pretty poor and they have made a lot of "overall" figures to not declare paying park customers.

    Though individual figures are not provided for the three main theme parks at the integrated resort – Legoland Dubai, Bollywood Parks and Motiongate movie park – that means an annual average attendance of less than 800,000. Numbers increased significantly in the fourth quarter of the year, when 796,000 visits were recorded across the resort, a 66% leap compared to the previous quarter. It is not known how many came just to visit the Riverland dining and retail district.
    They are also restructuring and backing out the decisions to split the business operations which were made in early 2017. It's a cost-saving exercise and will have implications on how the Six Flags is operated.

    Meanwhile DXB has announced an operational restructuring of the company, combining the Theme Parks and Retail & Hospitality divisions that were separated earlier in 2017. Ahmad Hussain, previously general manager of Theme Parks, has been appointed deputy CEO, whilst former GM of Retail & Hospitality Ahmed AlRayyes is now chief commercial officer.
