    That is this piece of land hilighted in red. This image from google maps is from November 2015 and there was already land being moved in this area so it looks like the construction started a while ago.

    It sure has!

    Planned to open in late 2019, Six Flags Dubai will be the fourth theme park at the Dubai Parks and Resorts destination and will include 27 rides and attractions for all ages across six themed zones; Thrillseeker Plaza, Magic Mountain, Fiesta Texas, Great Escape, Great Adventure, and Great America.
    Set over an area of 3.5 million square feet with an opening day footprint of 2 million square feet, the estimated cost of the project is AED 2.6 billion.
    Raed Kajoor Al Nuaimi, Chief Executive Officer, Dubai Parks and Resorts, said, “We are delighted to announce that construction has commenced on the region’s first Six Flags branded theme park. This is the fourth theme park at our destination alongside motiongate™ Dubai, Bollywood Parks™ Dubai and LEGOLAND® Dubai and it will help us strengthen the appeal of Dubai Parks and Resorts as a must visit destination in the region. Six Flags is a very successful brand in other parts of the world and the introduction of this exciting theme park will further establish Dubai Parks and Resorts as the region’s largest leisure and entertainment destination.”

    Dubai Parks & Resorts (the company) is looking to trade under a new name pending a decision by shareholders.

    The only reason I can see for doing this is to enable the company to dissociate itself with this specific project and seek building new parks outside of it. The loss of Dubai in the name also makes me think that they will be looking to expand into other territories.

    The proposed change will be put up before the company’s general assembly, following approval from the board of directors’ meeting on June 15. Shareholders have been invited to attend the general assembly meeting on June 23 (at 2pm) at the Taj Hotel, Business Bay, Dubai.
    If it meets with shareholder approval, dXb Entertainments PJSC will be the name for the corporate entity, while Dubai Parks and Resorts will continue to be the name of the region’s largest integrated theme park destination, featuring motiongate Dubai, Bollywood Parks Dubai, Legoland Dubai, and Legoland Water Park, opening in October this year.

    Two photos that I don't think have posted yet of a scale model of Dubai Parks and Resorts

    Plus some info about the parks and future expansion plans:

    Domes inspired by the royal palaces of India rise from a new Bollywood theme park under construction in Dubai, part of a drive to lure millions more tourists to the emirate.

    It already boasts opulent shopping malls and numerous luxury resorts, but the Gulf city-state has even grander ambitions and the film industry is center stage.

    Bollywood Parks is part of Dubai Parks and Resorts (DPR) which is being developed as the region’s “largest integrated theme park resort.”

    Spread over 25 million square feet (2.3 million square meters), it will feature three theme parks and a water park.

    The resort is located near the region’s busiest port and close to where Dubai is expanding its second airport to make it the world’s largest.

    The Bollywood theme park, a first of its kind inspired by the Indian popular movie industry, aims with its centerpiece Rajmahal Theatre, cinemas, rides and simulators to increase Dubai’s appeal to tourists from South Asia.

    “We are trying to target a wide geographic area, but of course the majority will be from India and countries in close proximity to India ... and (are) big lovers of Bollywood,” said its general manager, Thomas Jellum.

    Around 14,000 construction workers are toiling round the clock to keep DPR on track for its October opening.

    More than 14.2 million people visited Dubai in 2015, but the target is 20 million by 2020 when the Gulf emirate hosts the global trade fair Expo 2020.

    Dubai has invested billions of dollars over more than a decade to put itself on the map as a regional business and tourism hub.

    It has built a modern infrastructure unmatched by its regional peers.

    And as turmoil hits traditional tourism destinations in the Middle East and North Africa, Dubai has capitalized on its reputation as a safe haven for tourism and business.

    Tourism authorities have said hotel capacity was to reach 100,000 rooms in May, boasting that Dubai aims to “position itself as a top 10 global destination in terms of available hotel supply”.

    Hotel occupancy stood at 85 percent in the first quarter of 2016, with average nightly revenue of $142 per available room.

    To increase tourist numbers, Dubai is looking for visitors far from beyond its Gulf neighborhood.

    “The benefits would be limited if we rely on markets that we are used to. We need to expand our marketing to new places,” said Dubai Tourism chief Issam Kazim.

    Visitors from Gulf countries represented the largest regional group last year at 3.3 million, up 12.8 percent, with Saudis alone numbering 1.54 million.

    But Indian visitors surged by 26 percent to 1.6 million, becoming for the first time the largest single nationality, while Britons rose 11 percent to 1.2 million.

    “We do not want to focus on six or seven markets. We want to focus on 20 markets,” Kazim told AFP.

    More theme parks in pipeline

    Bollywood Parks will target visitors passing through Dubai and aims to “keep them a little bit longer”, said Jellum.

    Other theme parks are also being developed to increase the number of visitors.

    Next door, Motiongate Dubai teams up three major Hollywood studios -- Dreamworks, Sony Pictures and Lionsgate.

    It features rides that take visitors across simulated settings like the Smurfs Village, Madagascar and Kung Fu Panda, among 27 attractions based on 13 popular movies.

    “Our target is everybody,” said Motiongate Dubai general manager Guido Zucchi, including visitors from Gulf countries and elsewhere.

    The theme parks are only the latest additions to a long list of entertainment venues in Dubai, including an indoor ski slope.
    But authorities do not seem worried about saturation in Dubai’s tourism market.

    “We follow a long-term strategy,” said Dubai Tourism’s Kazim.

    He said authorities make sure “hotel room numbers do not rise before seeing that the number of visitors is increasing,” stressing there is “continuous dialogue between the private sector and the government” over expansion.

    Motiongate Dubai is also confident.

    “The tourists that Dubai is attracting every year, together with the expected ones for the following years, will absolutely be enough to create in this region an important destination, not only for tourism but also for leisure,” said Zucchi.
