    I totally agree, the location might be perfect for the future.

    I still see that the parks need to be enhanced, there's a lack of good shows, and still the rides don't meet Universal or Six Flags and Europa Park standard-- less thrilling, less high rides, and needs more vibes and life inside the parks.

    I hope Bollywood Parks merges with Motiongate as one park and change the area to Arabian theme with known Hollywood Arab characters like Sindbad and Ala Alden and other famous cartoons and films from Hollywood.

    Or adding Universal Studios as part of the park will create huge difference in number of visitors.

    Also Legoland, compared to the one in Denmark, still needs progress and expansion.

    Maybe my vision is too high but it must be like that to be successful. Residents of the UAE have been to Disney and Universal and all major theme parks in the world. Dubai must provide to UAE residents and tourists the same experience or even better.

    I still see hope for DPR and I love the place so much. Excited for the new expansion. Let's see, inshallah.

    Plenty of reasons for building it here:

    - Halfway from Dubai/Abu Dhabi
    - Close to Expo 2020 which will become a major urban center
    - Close to Palm Jebel Ali which will be bigger than Palm Jumeirah when complete and a new major tourism hub
    - On Sheikh Zayed Road
    - Close to future International Airport which will replace the current one as the Emirates Hub
    - On the (future) metro line

    Agree that this is all long term, risky, and forward thinking… but this is the way Dubai builds. By building it here, they also could allocate a large enough parcel of land to grow exponentially.

    By the way, IMG Worlds is in the center of Dubailand and it is empty as well. But Global Village located next door thrives.

    Business model, global awareness, and local habits are more causes for low attendance, than location. The planned metro station could really help as well, like it does for Expo 2020 which is packed even if the location is remote as well.
