Its not like giving out beer doesn't happen in that country. Besides, the customer is paying admission to get in.

Bud doesn't really taste like much of anything at all. If I want alcohol that tastes good, I'll drink wine.

there's good beer too. we have a whole thread devoted to it, and good beer is usually a lot cheaper than good wine ::D

Maybe my company being bought out by one with a ton of work in Dubai isn't such a bad thing afterall.

(It would actually be a good thing even without this)

Exactly ! How many themeparks are going to be in the Emirates once everything has been finished : Dubailand consisting of ?? themeparks (between 10 and 15 if I remember well) , 4 Seaworld parks, didn't Universal is going to build a park over there aswell, and I'm sure I forgot some announced parks now. But I don't see much progress in building let alone opening parks so far. I'm sure it's going to open, but when ? Once everything which has been announced actually is open, I'm 'afraid' you will need at least 3 weeks to visit all the parks.

Btw, excellent report and pics.

A one off or annual event catering to a homogeneous crowd is distinct from a huge theme park catering to a mixed crowd. I'm still betting they at least won't be giving out CH3CH2OH for "free", even if they're told they can.

In the interest of thread hijacking, I can think of several good wines in the $20 range, which puts you at a similar per serving cost as upper end beers, if you're talking $5+ bottles of Belgian stuff. Wine does have a much steeper upper end though.

Come on guys...we don't even have opening dates or what these parks are getting. No reason to talk about whether or not they'll serve alcohol right now!

Save it for 2012! ;)

This is the first stateside chain that has announced Dubai parks, right?

It will be interesting to see what other chains end up expanding into Dubai.

And yeah, we wouldn't be stupid enough to break US and UAE laws when we go!


Hmm--this year's new garden shop and the annual parade-of-has-beens concert lineup (unless you're a huge Charlie Daniels fan) doesn't quite stack up to the Dubai announcement. :lolr:

But Water Country is finally getting some new body slides, at least.

No, Universal already announced plans as well.

As for the beer part...it's a BUSCH park. Its going to be very weird if they open a park without beer
