The architects I work for are designing the Restless Planet one now, think that is going to be finished in 2007. I'm not allowed to say what is going in but I am going to be producing some marketing images in December so i should be able to post them when they are published.

I have foloowed the project from the start, there are two theme parks aren't there? A water park, a sea world type park? From the earlier models I saw there was a Intamin reverse free fall themed to a serpent?

I take it it has all changed now?

Looks not bad. I like the big sail ship at the entry. I am looking forward for some pictures from the buliding phase.

To me, Dubai is 'the' happening city (on a global scale).

From my old investment information there are several planned theme parks for Dubailand (search Dubai here, I think I've posted info on it).

I forget the alloted size for DL, but I know the anticipated employment is roughly quadruple of what Walt Disney World now has. Something like a 20 billion dollar investment.

OMG, I love model-making! Even if the eventual park doesn't exactly turn out like that. :lol: I have pix of our early model of the World's Fair (1986) site here I should post for you all to see... Hmmm...

Pix look great of the park model, dd. Would certainly be something interesting to travel too in the not-too-distant future, if $ possible. :)

And it's amazing how everything has been fit into the shape it is. Is there room for much expansion or am I just a nerd with math? <g>
