    the people who were let go were from high positions as VP's down to low levels
    Even theme park GM's were laid off. DPR turnover is so much lower than expected, they were too expensive.

    A press release has been sent this morning regarding the future opening of a Legoland Hotel next to the park.

    The 250-room hotel is being built on 300,00 square feet of land and will have easy access to Legoland Dubai and Legoland Waterpark.
    Six Flags is also confirmed for a 2019 opening.

    DPR has laid off about 300 +/- staff, they have given the staff one month notice. the people who got let go were from high positions as VP's down to low levels. F&B, retail, and Ops heads were among them. These aren't rumors, they are accurate information from few of the staff that were let go. An announcement will be made very soon, due to the poor performance of the parks and to lower the running costs.

    In regards to six flags getting cancelled, those were rumors that other guy mentioned a couple of comments before me. My reply is only on the staff.

    Please do not send any rumors. The project is ongoing and it is included officially as part of Dubai parks.

    This isn't entirley correct - the layoffs are the pre opening and some construction teams that were employed on a fixed term contract - some have been employed within the permanent teams, the rest have been released following there contract completion

    Chances are Six Flags Dubai will be cancelled. DPR has just laid off hundreds of employees.

    Here's a quick overlay I made showing the theme park over satellite view



    The red star indicates the approximate center of Six Flags:
