    DPaR has yet to open a 5th theme park there and Six Flags Dubai was cancelled 2019. We have yet to find out which theme park will open there.

  2. To be clear, this never was the entrance to the actual park, but just the temporary gate to the site office. The park's supposed location is a mile further into the desert and the berm is still intact as of today.

    The abandoned, supposed entrance/archway.

    Neither of that is true. Construction stopped in 2008 and the project was canceled in 2016.

    Last I heard they were focusing on the Four Asian Tigers, because there is already a Universal park in Singapore through license to Resorts World. South Korea would be next, from my best guess.
