  1. Six Flags said it plans to build the world's biggest roller coaster in Dubai.

    US-based Six Flags has reportedly pledged to build the world’s biggest roller coaster ride in Dubai.
    According to the Wall Street Journal, the tallest roller coaster in the world is in New Jersey and operated by Six Flags while the world’s fastest roller coaster is in Abu Dhabi at Ferrari World.
    “There will be rides that are bigger, better, faster, broader than any rides in the world,” John Odum, senior vice president of international park operations at Six Flags was quoted as saying.
    Both Abu Dhabi and Dubai are encouraging the development of theme parks to help boost foreign tourist arrivals as oil prices slump, causing an economic slowdown in the region.

  2. Source? As far as I know from the main contractor the civil work on Legoland is on schedule and ready to finish before soft opening date.

  3. The Hunger Games attractions won't be ready until few months after the opening of Motiongate park. The Lego Waterpark probably opens later also.

    It says "all three parks" which includes the Bollywood park. I have no doubt all 3 parks will open on October 31st.

  5. No mention about Bollywood, wonder if that is close.
    I suppose it depends on how much is "ongoing." If you have major attractions out or even a land not yet open, that's not good visual for opening.

    Looks like October 31st is the confirmed opening date but some work may be "ongoing"

    “We currently have close to 16,500 workers on site putting the final touches to the project,” said CEO Raed Kajoor Al Nuaimi.
    “As at the end of June, 93 per cent overall infrastructure construction was completed, with 84 per cent overall ride system and 80 per cent overall facilities construction complete. Show systems were 60 per cent completed, and we are within our targets for our opening in October this year.”

    New video from Dubai Parks and Resorts. This is the full version of the shorter video which I was unable to embed last time. Has a lot of computer generated views over the park.

    Some images from the new video released today with the Alan Menkin soundtrack. It is very "Disney" as you would expect.
    You can hear the new song and see the video on the link below.

    Motiongate released images of it's Ghostbuster's construction.



    As a tribute to the original classic, Ghostbusters: Battle for New York is an interactive, trackless dark ride that transports guests to the rooftops of New York City, where the paranormal activity begins aboard your very own Ecto-Pod vehicle. Armed with a ghost-blasting proton pack, guests are inducted as honorary Ghostbuster with one goal – to exterminate Slimer, Gozer the Destructor, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man and other sinister beings.
