Marvel Comics. . . Theme Park!

Marvel Comics. . . Theme Park!

That's right, concept art has just been released for an ENTIRE theme park dedicated to Marvel characters.

Most of Marvel's superheroes will have their own individual attractions including: the Fantastic Four, the Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, the X-Men, Silver Surfer, and, of course, Spider-man. According to a a recent post of Brady MacDonald of the L.A Times "Off-site testing has already begun on three of the planned attractions: "Flying with Spidey," "Fantasticar," and "X-Men: Danger Room".

Q: Can you guess where this park will be located (look below for the answer)?

Here is the concept art for the park, created by Chimera Designs:

Park Entrance

Aerial view

Notice the Nickelodeon area.

Park Map

The open space will supposedly be filled with more rides.

Entrance to the City of Superheros

Notice the FF logo?

City of Superheroes

I can see Daredevil, Spider-Man, Namor, Falcon and Gladiator. Did you notice any others?

3-D character show

I don't know who the heck this guy is. . .

Spider-Man interactive ride

Oasis of Magic

Dr. Strange is a given. . . who else would fit in here?

There's no description for this photo. . . but it looks like it could be Wakanda to me!

Stark Industries

An unnamed submersible roller coaster . . . Namor anyone?

A: Dubai (United Arab Emirates). The park is a joint venture between the Al Ahli Group and Marvel Entertainment. It will supposedly cost around $1 billion to construct, and is scheduled to open in 2012.

MPP - Ummm. . . I really don't know what to say except HELL YEAH! I'm going to start saving up some cash right freakin' now!

holy shit that looks cool!! Gettin a tour of stark industries would be cool as hell! and maybe when you go underwater they have some computer generate atlantis all around you...that would be cool!!
Runefyst - 12/2/2009, 6:37 AM
Niiiiiccccceeeee........Dubai though? They should put it next to Disney World, that way you can take in both. :)
JoshWilding - 12/2/2009, 6:48 AM
Im not in the least bit suprised that something of this scale would be in Dubai! I cant imagine how [frick]ing amazing it'll be if it looks even a fraction like the images above!
blueorangeny - 12/2/2009, 6:55 AM
wait a second! Dubai? wtf.....which idiot frm Disney or MARVEL thought of the idea of taking it international?
superman7 - 12/2/2009, 7:04 AM
F*cking Dubai?? WTF?! Horseshit!

Blueorangeny: is that you in your avatar?
Nivag76 - 12/2/2009, 7:05 AM
why is there spongebob at the entrance and orange splats? it must have to do with universal
thenumber12 - 12/2/2009, 7:08 AM
Maybe if the park does well in dubai they will consider opening one in the states?
answer - 12/2/2009, 7:10 AM
I remeber the 3D Spiderman ride in univeral studios! It was Awesome!! Well it was when I was 12!!

This looks like a great Idea and putting it out side the US is a great idea but instead of Dubai I think it would be even better in my garden!!
Spilox - 12/2/2009, 7:13 AM
This looks realy good. Only the names of the rides sound a bit lame. "flying with spidey" FTW!
As for Dubai, that's realy just retarded. The Island they build is allready in financial need. And why drop a park in a sandpit :S. Just put it somewhere in Europe!
supermarioworldE - 12/2/2009, 7:17 AM
Well I would have preferred it to be opened in the u.s., but hey, beggars can't be choosers. This is great news! Marvel really seems to be dominating nowadays. I like the designs for the park. This place is really gonna be big (both literally and figuratively).
XmutantX - 12/2/2009, 7:46 AM
Multi@ all ur points r valid...but wouldnt sumtin like this help boost the u.s. economy?...i dont kno alotta ppl who can afford 2 fly 2 dubai ontop of the im sure expensive as hell park tickets and expences...o well maybe disney world will add sum marvel stuff...oh and dubai does look like paradise!
lilej2 - 12/2/2009, 7:48 AM
i think its mostly in Dubai because of Universal Studios' next park is gonna be in dubai, that would be another reason to visit Dubai, for both parks, Universal is actually using Marvel more than Disney, i wish they would've bought them instead cause they obviously know how to use Marvel
XmutantX - 12/2/2009, 7:55 AM
well disney JUST bought them so giv it time lol
13ulletpr00f17 - 12/2/2009, 7:59 AM
i think the "wakanda" picture is actually an x-men related area if you look at the picture closely, you can see some of the x-men like the banner on the top left corner of the picture appears to be wolverine
stark - 12/2/2009, 8:04 AM
Cool news. Dubai is disappointing though. I'll have a hard time convincing someone to go to Dubai for a theme park.
loganoneil - 12/2/2009, 8:05 AM
Guys - the whole Dubai thing sucks, but it makes sense (kinda'... ok maybe not). A CORPORATION has got to pimp their product where the money is...

Breaking News - Disney Merges With Marvel Comics: Takeover Begins
moar funny pictures

The question is 'the money' into Marvel comics as much as we are here. I have a feeling this is going to go over in Dubai about as well as Euro-Disney went in France!

Eat my ass Dubai. In 50 years, it'll be a super fancy dust bowl wasteland.
jazzman - 12/2/2009, 8:19 AM
my friends who went to Dubi said its a great place. good place for a holiday.
RorMachine - 12/2/2009, 8:22 AM
I would happily live in it! Looks amazing.

Who the hell is that blue dude with the bow and arrow?
JoshWilding - 12/2/2009, 8:28 AM
I wonder how big the whole thing will end up being?
thegreek - 12/2/2009, 8:30 AM
Well ofcourse they would make a separate park ... Shit the Marvel Super Hero's are not welcome at universal anymore since Disney the devil owns them now...
jazzman - 12/2/2009, 8:34 AM
damn that Hulu video its only for the US what does the video tells you
Stumblin - 12/2/2009, 9:04 AM
Universal did it...
airbeyonder18 - 12/2/2009, 9:13 AM
It's a dream come true. I think I'm gonna cry. That is definitely #1 on my list of things to do before I die!

Multipurposeponi@: Great find! I will never ever forget this. This is the best find ever in my book!
airbeyonder18 - 12/2/2009, 9:23 AM
Yes it is disapointing that it's in Dubai for those of us who live in the U.S. including myself. But MPP is right, they actually made a theme park about superheroes, even if it's in Dubai who cares? It could be a "Super Adventure"! So suck it up fellow Americans, we live in a country where we can get a job and save money so we can travel if we wanted to!
JoshWilding - 12/2/2009, 9:30 AM
Looking at some of the amazing stuff thats been built in Dubai the past few years, it could actually be a good thing that its being built there! I just hope it doesnt end up being tacky - I think that theres always a risk of something like that but with $1 billion being spent I highly doubt in on second thoughts! :P

Guys, go check out my ULTIMATES fan cast!!!

Dubai = Sinking Fast...
TheThing - 12/2/2009, 9:36 AM
This is a Joke, there in NO way they are building an amusement park for Marvel in Dubai, it would be bankrupt before the 1st year was over. Who would frequent the place, Osama and a bunch of Sheiks?
akthunder - 12/2/2009, 9:39 AM
Jesus just keep it in the US. Marvel is a US company. We should get the park first.
WarNoodle - 12/2/2009, 9:39 AM
MultiPurposePoni @ I think you mean the US is in debt 12 trillion... they way obama has things running, will be 14 trillion sooner than we think.. :p

Actually Multi, i'm Canadian and you couldn't pay me enough to go there. I don't know if the rules and regulations work similar to in Oman but i know someone that moved there and let me just tell you that you're lucky to be married. It's not a very "unmarried couple" friendly environement. And since i don't believe in marriage, civil or religious, i'm not going there.
CyberViking2000 - 12/2/2009, 9:48 AM
Dubai is a house of cards. It will fall sooner than later.

I'm Canadian, but the first place they should have built the park should have been in either California or Florida.

Dubai is too expensive for the average Joe to afford.

sadmamba - 12/2/2009, 9:59 AM
really in Dubai? i love that place but i thought they are suffering from debt..
jazzman - 12/2/2009, 10:30 AM

thanks for the link but its not working


thanks for the info. actually comic books are international so Arabs do care about comic books too. i would like it to be in America but if they have a contract to do it overseas well we cant do anything about it. also this has nothing to do with Disney cause the deal was done way before Marvel joined Disney.

heres the article from Al Ahli Group(March 21 - 2007) website
sadmamba - 12/2/2009, 10:31 AM
what the ruler of Dubai wants, the ruler gets!!

now start building that damn theme!!!
Joe6Pack74 - 12/2/2009, 10:38 AM
