Dubai Parks and Resorts has begun construction of its next theme park, a Dhs 2.6bn ($707.8m) attraction in partnership with US operator Six Flags. It will include 27 rides and attractions across six themed zones: Thrillseeker Plaza, Magic Mountain, Fiesta Texas, Great Escape, Great Adventure and Great America. The park, which is scheduled to open in 2019, will be the fourth at the company’s destination south of Dubai where it will open Hollywood themed motiongate, Bollywood Park Dubai and Legoland Dubai in October. These will be spread across an opening day area of two million square feet, with a further 1.5 million square feet available for expansion.
