Are we getting a new logo out of this for Six Flags besides an obvious 50th Anniversary banner addition next year?

Three more photos have been released:

Once guests had received their tickets in the WELCOME CENTER, they would then make their way onto the TREASURE PROMENADE- a chic boulevard filled with boutique shops and cafes. At the end of the promenade, guests would be beckoned by the incredible "KALEIDOSCOPE"- SIX FLAGS DUBAILAND's central icon, as well as by the towering structure of The DUBAI GIANT giga coaster

At the heart of SIX FLAGS DUBAILAND is the park's spectacular icon- the KALEIDOSCOPE. Designed by "Glow in the Park" Production Designer Raul Rodriguez, the Kaleidoscope is an icon unlike any other in the world. Centered around a giant ferris wheel, colossal fabric discs turn free-form in opposing directions to create an endless series of thrilling visuals that take on a different look in the day and night.

Guests would make their grand arrival to SIX FLAGS DUBAILAND along the TREASURE PROMENADE- a luxurious shopping street set amidst lush landscaped alleyways and hidden garden courtyards.

One of the most unique aspects of SIX FLAGS DUBAILAND is that the lands do not try to re-create specific times or places, but rather are designed to evoke certain emotions. From the park's central hub, guests would be able to choose from six spectacular gateways representing these breathtaking themed areas.

Looking at the second photo, it looks like there will be a new logo. Unless thats one you have already seen before.

The park icon is certainly unique. Like the twists on the Disney formula of Main Street and the hub system. It will be very interesting to see if this park ever does get built.

More concept art.

Now that we've reached the park's hub, we'll explore SIX FLAGS DUBAILAND one land at a time, beginning today with EXPLORE. In EXPLORE, guests can fly in a stunt plane on the "SCREAMIN' EAGLE", careen down a whitewater river on "ROARING RAPIDS", or take a scenic drive on the park's "ANTIQUE CARS."

Jeez, Dubai is currently growing exponentially... but what's going to happen when the oil dries up? There is nothing else there besides some of the most ridiculous (albeit awesome) displays of wealth in the world.

Is there a poll somewhere on A) If this will get built and B) if it gets built, will it outlive Hard Freestyle Fail Park?

The concept art is pretty spectacular, but I'd prefer not to get my hopes up anytime soon since this is the first news we've heard of Dubailand in months. I have to admit, the sign/entrance strung across the wooden coaster (please, oh please to be an El Toro clone!) as well as the Tower of Light and the Kaleidoscope look very creative. The "Roller coaster road" thing is a little much, though. And if this park ever sees the light of day, I hope it doesn't get the world's first B&M Giga coaster since it's a prototype and it might be negatively affected by the heat.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

I look at it this way: Even if it doesn't get built, then we know what Six Flags would want to do if they were free of any financial limitations. If this would be built, then I would bet without hesitiation that it would be a park that could be as great as the Disney Parks.

Can't wait until more artwork is released.

That is their reason for much of the building lately. The oil will run out, and they are trying to build up themselves as a major financial and tourist hub before that happen. They are trying to become the major financial player, with a nice position between Tokyo/Hong Kong/Singapore and London/Frankfurt.
