Another Dubailand Update
Published: December 23, 2009 at 4:38 PM
With Dubailand being such a huge project I'd imagine building would have all but stopped but on my visit yesterday lots of development was still going on.
F1-X, the indoor theme park based around popular racing franchise Formula 1, is progressing well, with the outside of the building nearly complete. Will it meet its target to open someime in 2010? Who knows, but at least it's getting built.
Whilst there seems to be lots of buildings popping up in the Dubailand area there's nothing else to mention in the way of theme parks but with Motor City, one section of the project, shooting up fast I'm sure we'll see continued development of the area, even if it is slower than expected.
In other Middle-Eastern news Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi looks set to open in the first part of 2010, boasting over 20 attractions in an indoor setting including the world's fastest roller-caster believed to be an Intamin Launch coaster.
I'll post more updates if and when I get them over the next two weeks whilst I'm here. But for the moment my evaluation is to keep your eye on what's happening in Abu Dhabi as progress in Dubai seems to be pretty slow.
