Just Published: Theme Park Insider: 2016 Year in Review
Is Anheuser-Busch looking to expand their US based theme park lineup outside of the country? If the latest rumors are true, Busch could be in negotiations for new park projects in East Asia as well as the UAE. In fact, one particular interesting rumor about their involvement in the UAE claims that proposals may have been on the table for a massive entertainment complex that could consist of a SeaWorld park, a Busch Gardens park, a Discovery Cove park and possibly an Aquatica style waterpark as well. Of course as we reported elsewhere today, things in the UAE may not be as robust as they first seemed as many projects are being cancelled or scaled back, though I would think that there is a good chance some of this rumored concept may still see the light of day, even if it’s just a Discovery Cove park which could fit right in to the high end tourist destination concept over there. (Note: I have not forgotten Busch’s minority ownership in PortAventura in Spain however, but these new rumored deals would be the first time that a Busch Entertainment branded parks would set up shop outside the USA.
