Created its own topic as it is a different attraction and company to DP&R.

Hopefully F1-X Dubailand will contain some alternative attractions that Ferrari World does not. We all know how long it took for that to establish itself..

Wild Wadi and Jumeirah Beach Expansion Plans!

The waters around the iconic Burj Al Arab look set to be transformed by a huge new Dhs6.3 billion project. The 'Marsa Al Arab' project is will be developed by Dubai Holding (responsable for Dubailand) and managed by Jumeirah and will include 2 new man-made islands and a massive expansion to Wild Wadi and a marine park

Wild Wadi Waterpark will be relocated closer to the beach. The new location will more than double Wild Wadi’s size, adding new rides and record breaking attractions, according to the statement.

The ara will also house 'Marine Park', a marine life educational and entertainment centre. With a 1,000 seat theatre, the park will feature shows that showcase various elements of marine life, allowing its visitors to interact with exotic aquatic animals and fish.

Together, the enhanced Wild Wadi and Marine Park will cover an area of 2.5 million square feet. The new family destination will house a dedicated theatre with a capacity of 1,700 seats, which will become home to Cirque du Soleil, a professional theatre troupe.

The project will break ground in June 2017 and will completed by late 2020. Its also going to be located literally 5 minutes away from where I live, so expect lots of updates!

Sad news coming from Sega Republic, the indoor park located inside the Dubai Mall. The park home to a unique set of flat rides and a Gerstlauer Spinning Coaster 'Spin Gear', had closed its doors to the public, not sure just yet if it's closing permanently or having a rebrand, hopefully it will reopen soon.
