    I wonder if they are still going to have the same plans of the rides that were planned for Universal Studios Dubailand back from 2008 and 2009. I heard that they were was going to be a Ghostbusters ride that was going to look like the Men in Black Alien attack ride System and that there was going to be a Men in Black Roller Coaster. Back in February 2009 there were plans that they were going to have three Sesame Street themed attractions which were going to be the Sesame Street 4-D Movie Magic from Universal Studios Japan, a carousel and theme stage show. I wonder if the cool King Kong Coaster will still be in the plans for the park, if they are still going to have it in Universal Studios Dubai.

    Sesame Street Attractions article back from February 2009:

  2. Too bad they are so anti-gay and anti-human rights in Dubai.

  3. Compare with the original plans:

    @Locus, great find! Renaming it 'Universal Studios Dubai' now since it's proposed location is outside Dubailand territory and changing the status from 'on hold' to 'unknown'

    Universal Studios is alive!

    Hang on a second, they announced this Mohammed Bin Rashid City a while ago, with a huge garden and a mall in collaboration with Universal Studios. It wasn't clearly mentioned if it was about a theme park, or just an entertainment center or some kind of branded experience. But now look at this:

    This is the layout of MBRCity and there is clearly an open-air theme park on the left side, with a lake in the middle which MUST be Universal Studios. It's back!!

  7. Does that friend work for Dubailand?

    No its not totally dead because my friend said that Dubailand had some financial issues and theyre trying to make things work so they can build it again

  9. Nope, not a theme park, that's a different location and there has been no official word that Universal's involvement with the mall/gardens project is to include a theme park. We'll have to wait and see!

    I think it refers to the Universal Studios theme park
