20th Century Fox World – Fox Theme Park

Fox have now announced that in addition to their 20th Century Fox World theme park and resort being constructed in Malaysia, they will also be building another park in Dubai.

“Add Fox to the growing list of Hollywood studios that see expanding opportunities in theme parks, especially overseas. It announced this morning plans to introduce a park and resort — 20th Century Fox World, Dubai — in 2018 as part of a deal with Al Ahli Holding Group.

Attractions will be based on Fox properties including Ice Age, Rio, Planet Of The Apes, Aliens, Predator, Night At The Museum, Titanic, The Simpsons, and Sons Of Anarchy.

This will be the studio’s second theme park; one in Malaysia is now scheduled to open in 2017. But Dubai will have the first Fox-branded resort. The arrangement with Al Ahli provides for up to three additional Fox-branded resorts outside Dubai.”

    Fiorina 161 is a desolate, mournful landscape full of parasites and emptiness. The prison (former mine) would be scary as hell; Especially since nothing works there, just having a candle or half ass flashlight!

    A desolate Nostromo or colony would be just as awesome - you're just bias.  :P
    I never said I wouldn't enjoy it tho... ;D

    To elaborate on my Simpsons post: The Leftorium is Ned Flanders' store in which everything is left handed and the Monorail was an episode in which the town invested millions on a poorly built one rail train, in which everyone almost died bc of no brakes. Come on guys. ::)

    Imagine the space station in AVP 2000.(all the dark lights and the commander screaming at the park visitors to get moving or imagine the guys are armed with laser guns or fake air/paintball guns and find Aliens/Predator/Androids/Angry park attendants :D.

    They could go nuts with and Alien theme park. A Dropship ride. An escape Hadley's Hope rollercoaster, that's ends at the Sulaco. A Fiorina Maze. An updated version of Alien War. If I was a Millionaire id go lol

    Ah, Haven't heard of it probably because of it being only in Australia. Wondered why Universal Studios has The Wizarding World of Harry Potter if its a Warner's property. Its probably a licensing deal.

    Speaking of which James Cameron's Avatar is set to have its own theme park at Disney World, I recon its another licensing matter because its a Fox property. Fox must really be furious that they no longer have shared distribution ownership of the Star Wars franchise with Lucas Film which now belongs to Disney. Supposedly Fox has sole owner ship of the original 1977 film until 2020. Damn it must be a blow for Fox because Star Wars was one of their biggest properties, heck one of their currently successful franchises the X-Men film series is a Marvel property (owned by Disney) and are stuck in a continuous contractual obligation of producing an X-Men movie every few years so the Rights do not revert back to Marvel=Disney. Damn Disney's eliminating the competition by consuming it.  :o Anyway here's looking forward to how they'll represent Aliens and Predator attractions at their park.

    Disney World, Universal Studios Florida, Paramount London which is in development and now Fox, all these studios are following the trend of investing in amusement parks as a source of profit. Wonder how long until Warner Bros and Sony jump on this band wagon. The question is will these non Disney World/Universal Studios theme parks be successful enough by simply relying on the brand recognition of their franchises?

    I'm sure we will - especially if it's all themed around the Derelict. I have no idea how they'll do a ride though. I'm not a massive (at all) theme park fan so I'm not really up on how they achieve theme outside of decoration.

    Well, I wonder how their Alien-Predator world will be like.. I mean with the Prometheus movies influencing things, will we see Engineers now walking around, alongside with Predators and Aliens?

    We've known about Malaysia park for a while, the Dubai one is a new announcement. It's all in the original post, Rakai.  :) And I don't think we ever front paged the original to be fair so it was a nice opportunity to get both out.
