Dubailand is an entertainment complex and theme park under construction in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It is a unique multi functional place of sports, entertainment, leisure, tourism and retail attractions mega project. Some of the facilities like the Dubai Autodrome and The Global Village, are already in operation. Dubai land theme park will contain 45 mega projects and over 200 sub projects, making it the most ambitious tourist destination ever created. It is divided into six zones : Sports and Outdoor World, Attractions and Experience World, Themed Leisure and Vacation World, Eco-Tourism World, Retail and Entertainment World, and Downtown. Current estimates predict that Dubailand will open between 2015 and 2018.
Dubailand project was officially announced on October 23, 2003 and it is an idea of the current leader of Dubai, Shaykh Mohamed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum. It will cover an area of 3 billion square feet (279 million square meters) and the project will cost about 65 billion dollars. The total project will measure more than twice what is Disney World in Florida. However, no theme park in Dubai land will surpass Disney’s Animal Kingdom (located at Walt Disney World Resort) as the world’s largest theme park. Dubailand is being managed by Dubai Government’s Dubai Development and Investment Authority (DDIA).
