  1. This model was developed by Legacy Entertainment for the Dubailand iteration of Six Flags Dubai. Like other Legacy projects, the rides and attractions are seamlessly woven into the park's lands and environments.




















  2. Legacy Entertainment's theme park design of Six Flags Dubailand was organized in a spoke-and-hub configuration, a planning method best known from Disney's "castle parks". These bird's-eye, model, and master planning diagrams show the relationships between the park's themed zones, as well as the unique integration of the rides and attractions into their environments.

    Worth a close-up look is the intricately-detailed linework for the park's bird's-eye view, drawn by legendary Disney poster designer, Jim Michaelson.




















  3. The final zone of Legacy Entertainment's theme park design of Six Flags Dubailand was EXPLORE- an homage to the golden age of travel. The land's signature attraction was to be SCREAMIN' EAGLE- a heavily-themed B&M Dive Machine. Also sure to be popular was ROARING RAPIDS- a new take on the chain's classic rapids ride brand. Antique Cars and a Parachute Tower were also present for those looking for milder thrills.
















  4. Wow.

    The new and equally failed Six Flags Dubai designed by FORREC appears totally uninspired compared to what Six Flags Dubailand would have looked like.


  5. Legacy Entertainment's theme park design for Six Flags Dubailand featured themed zones based on emotions, including Celebrate, Wonder, Imagine, Play, Explore, and DISCOVER.

    DISCOVER was designed as a showcase of Six Flags' most epic and heroic brands, featuring attractions themed to TITAN, COLOSSUS, and GOLIATH. The signature attraction was The DUBAI GIANT- a B&M Giga Coaster that, upon opening, would have been the World's Tallest and Longest Hypercoaster. Also notable is COLOSSUS, the El Toro clone from Intamin, which would have extended out over the park's Toll Booths to create an unforgettable and iconic arrival experience.




















  6. Legacy Entertainment's theme park design for Six Flags Dubailand featured themed zones relating to emotions, including Celebrate, Wonder, Imagine, Discover, Explore, and PLAY.

    PLAY was envisioned as a kinetic wonderland in which the entire land would have felt like one enormous playground. Partly inspired by Rolly Crump's Tower of the Four Winds from the 1964 World's Fair, concepts for numerous wind-powered kinetic sculptures were developed to help activate the land. This zone would have contained the park's highest concentration of rides and attractions targeted at families and young children.


















  7. Legacy Entertainment's theme park design for Six Flags Dubailand featured themed zones related to emotions, including Celebrate, Wonder, Play, Discover, Explore, and IMAGINE.

    IMAGINE would have immersed visitors in an optimistic futurescape notable for its "living" architecture. Attractions would have included a Family Suspended Coaster, a Hanging Dark Ride, as well as Z-FORCE- a "Mad House" Rotating Room attraction.

    The sad nothingness that Six Flags Dubai is today. Google satellite imagery from Q1/2020:







  9. Legacy Entertainment's theme park design for Six Flags Dubailand featured lands relating to emotions; Celebrate, Imagine, Play, Discover, Explore, and WONDER.

    WONDER would have immersed visitors in a mystical Asian garden village. Six Flags brands integrated into this zone would have been NINJA (Spinning Coaster), TATSU (Mack Water Coaster), and on the more obscure side, The MAGIC PAGODA (Tilt House Walk-Through).












  10. It’s worth pointing out that Six Flag's Dubailand was the originally planned SF park, not the park that started construction at Dubai Parks & Resorts.

    The design of the newer SF was quite different. FORREC was the master planner.
