A New Beach Theme Park in Dubai?
Dubai’s already the home to quite a few of the most amazing theme parks in the world with IMG Worlds of Adventure, the largest cooled indoor theme park and the numerous parts of Dubai Parks and Resorts with Motiongate Dubai, LEGOLAND Dubai, LEGOLAND Waterpark, Bollywood Parks, Riverland Dubai and the announcement of a Six Flags, too, means Dubai’s about to get a whole load of great new attractions. However, a brand new beach theme park by Actventure might just be coming to Dubai, or so we’ve heard.
We’ve heard on the grape vine that an Australian Company who are in the process of creating a huge 1.2 billion AED (£236 million) development in Australia, is now looking to Dubai for the location of their newest venture. Actventure, the company in question, seems to be eyeing up a particular spot along Dubai’s many beaches to build a mega beach theme park right here.
Their current development in Queensland, Australia, is currently undergoing Phase One, which will feature a huge waterpark, outdoor adventure tower and an immense retail space where people will be able to get all sorts of goodies.
Phase Two and Three will both include a massive hotel, with around 225 hotels, an action sports area with facilities to cater for BMX riding, skateboarding and more.
CEO of Actventure, Bradley Sutherland, has been quoted as saying, ‘The UAE’s leisure and entertainment industry is forecast to reach 45 million visitors a year by 2021 and we are very interested in participating in this growth.’ And, ‘We convened our advisory board meeting in Dubai to discuss potential locations and partners for a UAE roll-out. Other global sites are (also) being considered.’
Another theme park in Dubai certainly wouldn’t go amiss and I’m sure the thrill seekers and park lovers in Dubai would be over the moon with another fantastic choice for their weekend.
