    20th Century Fox World will never be built with this theme, Disney will not allow this and the Genting Group is the proof of this. They literally were months away from opening their Fox World inspired park before the merger of Disney and Fox and Disney pulled the plug on their theme license.

    As CarlySX said, this is dead and will not be coming back to the land of the living.

    The reason it’s on hold though isn’t financial like most projects, but due to the state of the entire region’s theme park industry; if other parks in the UAE continue to become more successful, then maybe it will be built.

    Though the affect on tourism by Covid might mean that the financial backing disappears also.

    It's a dead park. It will never be built.

    Any update on this park?

  6. Concept art of "The Gateway" which was going to be a "restaurant, dining, and entertainment resort complex" next to the theme park:

















    In the highly anticipated 20th Century Fox Studios theme park, FSY Architects conceptualized the iconic entrance area. The entry gate complex welcomes guests to Century City, a glitzy metropolis filled with shops, restaurants and attractions. Century City represents a new urban setting combining the rich history of Fox motion pictures and television with original architecture reminiscent of those locales. At the end of the main boulevard, the historic Fox Theater beckons all to relive the greatest moments in Fox motion picture history.

    Ambitious plans for a 20th Century Fox World theme park in Dubai are on hold due to concerns about oversupply, according to Mohammed Khammas, CEO of Al Ahli Group.

    “We've realized that there’s now a serious supply of theme parks in Dubai,” Khammas told Arabian Business, in an exclusive interview.

    From what I have been told this project is currently dead but could later on be revived...

    In spite of that, here's more concept art of the park:

    The photos below are off Emirates Road, and that area plus the area with the Universal arch is not owned by Al Ahli. They own the stretch of land just past the Outlet Mall, ie further up Al Ain Road. The temporary events venue Autism Rocks Arena is on their land and can be seen on Googlemaps. It is close to the abandoned Universal site with the circular berms, but immediately adjacent to Al Ain Road instead.
