    Marvel Dubailand Artwork & Details

    Before the economic downturn, Dubailand was moving forward with a $1billion Marvel Themepark. Like everything else in Dubailand it has since been put on hold. But should something happen and this move forward it would be interesting to see how the Disney acquisition affects the liscensing agreements already signed between Tatweer and Marvel.

    Here is a glimpse of what was planned:







    Dubailand, a member of Tatweer, today announced the finalization of the design and conceptual master plan for the world's first ever Marvel Superheroes theme park that will be developed with investments of Dhs3.3bn as a key anchor project at the world's largest leisure, tourism and entertainment destination.

    The 4.5 million square feet project will be demarcated into three districts, including City Centrum, the HUB, and The Marvel Academy.

    Three of the theme park's rides - Flying with Spidey, Fantasticar, and X-men: Danger Room - are already undergoing offsite trial runs, prior to its installation within Dubailand.

    Mohammed Alhabbai, CEO Dubailand, said: "Work on the Marvel Superheroes theme park is on fast track. The finalization of the design and master plan marks a significant milestone in the progress of the development that is already generating great excitement with the offsite trial runs of its three popular rides.

    "The theme park will draw over 3.5 million visitors annually as a high-voltage entertainment park for the entire family to re-live their childhood memories and interact with their much-loved Superhero characters."

    The Marvel Superheroes theme park will boast 17 rides and attractions. It will also comprise nine retail outlets on an area of 30,000 square feet. Over 40 food and beverage outlets, including carts merchandising light refreshments, will be developed over 40,000 sq. ft. area.

    Groundbreaking for the project is expected to be conducted in the first quarter of 2009, with the theme park scheduled to open doors on 31 December, 2012.

    Initiated by Tatweer, the Marvel Superheroes theme park will further enhance and diversify the region's entertainment offerings, and spotlight Dubai's status as one of the world's most attractive tourism destinations.

    Dubailand, a three billion sq ft development, Other projects owned by Tatweer at Dubailand destination include, The Tiger Woods Dubai, Universal Studios Dubailand, Global Village Dubailand, DreamWorks Dubailand Animation Park, Hit Entertainment "Little Big Club Dubailand", Six Flags Dubailand, Marvel Dubailand, FREEJ Dubailand, and LEGOLAND Dubailand.

    that actually looks interesting and if the detail is done well with emersive lands i could very well see Disney opening one of these as another gate in one of their resorts. They could finally lure the teenage to adult crowd they have been wanting but have failed to lure within some of their newer ventures.

    The key word is detail to avoid having a park that looks like a mini magic mountain park. IOA in orlando proves that it can be done
