  1. What's a Universal Studios 'entertainment center' supposed to look like?

    Most recently, it outlined plans to build a brand new city. Named after its ruler, Mohammed bin Rashid, it is intended to house a hundred hotels and a Universal Studios entertainment center.

    TheNational Abu Dhabi even talks about a Universal Studios theme park:

    The project will also include the Mall of the World. It is anticipated the mall will have the capacity to handle 80 million visitors a year.

    It will also include a Universal Studios theme park.Originally, it was planned that a Universal Studios would be situated in the planned mega development, Dubailand. The project has been on hold and it is not clear whether the Mohammed Bin Rashid City will replace plans for Dubailand.

    Interesting:

    ‘Mohammed Bin Rashid City’ will feature a massive park which will be 30 per cent bigger than Hyde Park in London. It will be surrounded by the largest mall in the world called ‘Mall of the World’, which will be capable of receiving 80 million visitors a year, and include over 100 hotel facilities to meet the requirement for accommodation.

    ‘Mall of the World’ will be connected to a family entertainment centre which will be developed in collaboration with Universal Studios International. This centre will be the largest in the region and is expected to attract 6 million visitors each year.

    "in collaboration with Universal Studios" - is this supposed to be another indoor theme park like the one proposed for Moscow?

    Looked up the location on Google Earth and found the site. This is certainly not a live project... it's totally dead, at least for now:

    Universal Studios Dubai aerials 2007-2011

    Let's take a look at Google Earth. Satellite pictures always tell the truth.

    20 August 2007, before everything started:


    23 April 2008, construction in full swing:


    15 August 2009, construction stopped:


    2 April 2010, nothing happening:


    22 August 2011, the desert slowly takes it back:



    Let's zoom a bit closer.

    2009:


    2010:

  8. Now you can experience the magic of movie sets as Universal Studios takes shape in DUBAILAND.
    Absolutely untrue. There is no progress on Universal Studios!

    This is what I found when I was looking on their website:
    http://www.dubailand.ae/leisure-and-entertainments.aspx

  10. Looks like they got pretty far with it, the whole structure seems to be engraved in the desert. Would be great to see Universal Studios coming alive in Dubai, after all these property downturn years. I think now is the time to get it restarted!
