icon_STOPResort News - (1/22/2023) Dinosaurs are coming to Dubai Parks & Resorts! Teased on social media over the past week, it was confirmed that a new “Dino Mania” dinosaur parade kicked off at the resort on Jan. 20, 2023 that will run as a free bonus attraction throughout the resorts more popular and cooler winter months.

    (11/19/22) Dubai Parks and Resorts has apparently signed a deal to build the world’s first “Real Madrid theme park” that will feature sports themed rides, attractions and experiences. According to this article the goal is to open the new attraction by late 2023, which seems like a very short timetable to me. One thing to consider however is that Dubai Parks & Resorts did begin construction years ago on a proposed Six Flags Dubai theme park, only to shelve the project in the early phases of the build. With that in mind, if the Real Madrid project is going on the same site, they may be planning on repurposing any infrastructure and grading work already done on the site for the abandoned Six Flags project to speed  up the build of Real Madrid.
    This would make sense as I believe several of the ride’s originally purchased for the Six Flags project were also moved and used to expand the existing Motiongate and Bollywood Parks on site at Dubai Parks and Resorts.
    While the idea of building an entire theme park around the theme of a single sports team of any kind seems to be a bit out there, the dream to build a Real Madrid theme park has been something talked about for many years now. While still a bit foreign a concept to the American marketplace, the fact is that Real Madrid is one of the most popular Football clubs (aka: Soccer teams) in the world today.
    (4/26/21) The bad news is that Dubai Parks & Resorts has reported a Q1 2021 loss of 360 million dirhams ($98 million). The good news is that the loss in 2021 is actually is actually only about 63% of what DBX lost in Q1 2020, which was 564.6 million dirhams ($153.72 million). It seems a good sign that things are getting better, but they’ve got a ways to go still before the resort becomes profitable.
