Six Flags bankruptcy won't delay Dubai project

Tatweer, a leisure developer owned by Dubai's ruler, said on Monday the bankruptcy of its partner Six Flags will not delay a multi-billion dirham project. Tatweer, which is building at least seven theme parks in the Gulf Arab emirate, signed in May last year an agreement with Six Flags to develop a theme park in Dubai and develop other projects in the Arab region.

The SF Bankruptcy might not, but there are a lot of other things that will.

See progress (or lack there of) on all of the other Dubai theme parks (Busch, Universal, Marvel, etc)

Dubai, as a destination, is dying.

It's amazing that any park will ever be built in one of the hottest places on Earth. I heard Disney is building a park that will dwarf any of their other parks.

Paris Hilton went there and said, "That's hot!"

Of course Paris would say that since she was never that smart when you look at her tv shows. At least she got something right.
