    Has there been any further update on this?

  2. Whoops. It seems that theme park might be pushed back its opening year to 2020.

    Also in the pipeline are a Warner Bros theme park on Abu Dhabi's Yas Island, due to open in 2018, and a Fox-branded theme park, with attractions based on TV and film titles such as "Ice Age" and "The Simpsons", scheduled for a 2020 opening.

  3. My sources say it's dead. That middle management at 10th Century Fox is responsible for deal going south. No surprise.

  4. What news ?

    There has already been a press release with details, rendering... Then at the end of May it was once again confirmed in a media interview.

    Heck, even Warner Bros Abu Dhabi was officially announced after 6 months of construction already.

    Let's wait until Year End before jumping on any conclusion.

  5. If construction was to kick off in 2-3 months from now, we would have some more news now. I believe Fox Dubai has been quietly shelved, it wasn't feasible in the first place anyway.

  6. According to Godsick, construction of the “20th Century Fox World” in Dubai will kick off in 4 to 5 months.

    Expected highlights of Fox Dubai:

    Theme park consisting of themed lands and attractions based on Fox properties, including, Ice Age, Rio, Planet of the Apes, Aliens, Predator, Night at the Museum and Titanic, The Simpsons and Sons of Anarchy.

    A broad attraction mix, ranging from media-based dark rides to thrill rides that will tell new stories based on Fox film and television brands.

    A themed retail street featuring unique shopping and dining based on Fox properties.

    The world’s first Fox-themed resort hotel.
    ...and these will most likely be the attractions of the park (third-party speculations):

    Fox World Dubai Hotel

    Fox World Entry

    Night at the Museum

    The Simpsons - Springfield

    The Big Guy and Rusty the Boy Robot/New Tronic City

    Alien World

    Ice Age Carousel

    Ice Age Ride



    Sons of Anarchy

    Planet of the Apes

  8. Update from Screamscape!

    (11/5/15) I've got a quick update on the new Fox park in Dubai. The new theme park is being designed by Rethink Leisure & Entertainment LLC, based in Burbank, CA. According to Josh Updike, Chief Creative Officer at Rethink, "Our work on the resort is just beginning, but I’m proud of the effort that the creative team here at Rethink has put forth. From day one, our design goal has been to bring to life exciting worlds that guests can experience with all five senses. Right now, those worlds are only pixels on a screen, but in the coming months, earthworks will gave way to alien landscapes, redwood forests and prehistoric glaciers. Our team is looking forward to doing the hard work that’s going to get us there."

    Also, for anyone wondering if Rethink is involved in the other 20th Century Fox theme park under construction in Malaysia, the answer from Josh Updike is a negative, "Rethink is not involved in the previously announced Fox World Malaysia park being built by Genting." So with that in mind, I wouldn't expect to see any "shared" attractions cloned between the two parks.

  9. Good luck!
