Dubai Parks and Resorts has started construction on the first Six Flags branded theme park in Dubai.

The new park will be Dubai Parks and Resorts’ fourth theme park alongside Motiongate Dubai, Legoland Dubai, and Bollywood Parks Dubai.

The AED2.6bn ($707M) project will be built on a 325,000sq m area with an opening day footprint of 186,000sq m.

Six Flags Dubai will feature 27 rides and attractions for all ages across six themed zones.

It will also include at least three world record breaking rides apart from six roller coasters, four aerial attractions, a 350m river rapids ride and three performance spaces.

Dubai Parks and Resorts’ CEO Raed Kajoor Al Nuaimi said: “We are delighted to announce that construction has commenced on the region’s first Six Flags-branded theme park.

“This is the fourth theme park at our destination alongside Motiongate Dubai, Bollywood Parks Dubai and Legoland Dubai and it will help us strengthen the appeal of Dubai Parks and Resorts as a must visit destination in the region.

“Six Flags is a very successful brand in other parts of the world and the introduction of this exciting theme park will further establish Dubai Parks and Resorts as the region’s largest leisure and entertainment destination.”

The park is expected to open in late-2019.
