DreamWorks theme park to come up in Dubailand

Dubai, January 20, 2008

Tatweer, a member of Dubai Holding, has formed a strategic alliance with US-based DreamWorks Animation SKG, to develop a diverse portfolio of tourism and leisure projects in Dubailand.

A highlight of the alliance will be the creation of the world’s first DreamWorks Animation branded theme park in Dubai. The multi-billion theme park will be built on a 5 million sq feet area.

The venture will bring to life the much-loved characters from DreamWorks Animation films, including Shrek, the upcoming Kung Fu Panda and several others, to create adventures and attractions in a first-of-its-kind development for the studio.

Tatweer and DreamWorks Animation will also work together to develop new concepts, including Dreamworks Animation themed restaurants, hotels and retail outlets in the region, providing unique experiences through the use of innovative media and creative storytelling. 

Saeed Al Muntafiq, executive chairman of Tatweer, said: “We are extremely proud of our alliance with DreamWorks Animation.
“As the owner and developer of the three-billion sq ft Dubailand, which hosts some of the world’s most enchanting entertainment concepts, Tatweer has become a leader in bringing landmark projects to Dubai, including Bawadi, Tiger Woods Dubai and the world’s best theme parks. DreamWorks Animation’s global reputation in character creation and its strong character portfolio will add further value to our offering, providing an enhanced experience to visitors and tourists.”

Jeffrey Katzenberg, CEO of DreamWorks Animation, said: “We are thrilled to bring the first DreamWorks Animation dedicated theme park to Dubai through our alliance with Tatweer for Dubailand. This relationship will allow us to create an exciting destination where families and tourists will enjoy the unique opportunity to interact with DreamWorks branded content within Dubailand.”

Dubailand spreads on an area of 3 billion sq ft, and includes Universal Studios Dubailand, Dubai Sports City, Motor City, Falcon City, Dubai Heritage Vision, and Al Barari. These projects are under advanced stages of development. The Polo and Equestrian Club and City of Arabia are currently in the initial stages of infrastructure work. – TradeArabia News Service
