Spider-Man in Dubai

Now this is cool. But Dubai? I just don’t see myself getting there.

Marvel today announced a partnership with United Arab Emirate-based Al Ahli Group to develop a Marvel universe theme park in Dubai.

From the press release:

Mohamed Khammas, CEO of Al Ahli Group commented, “Al Ali Group’s partnership with Marvel Entertainment serves a long pursued quest of creating the ultimate entertainment destination for families and children of the region and the world, a destination where they can live their childhood fantasies and create new memories for the entire family to cherish and remember. Family destinations have not evolved in Pan Arabia and thus it’s time that we cater to that demand and make the investment required for global tourism.

“Marvel is a brand that is recognized globally via its ever expanding list of ‘Super Hero’ characters. Now, it won’t be much longer until the children in Pan Arabia and the world can experience new and exciting rides with Marvel’s Spider-Man, the Incredible Hulk, the Fantastic Four and many other Super Heroes right here in the UAE.”
