‘Sons Of Anarchy’ And ‘Titanic’ Are Part Of Fox’s New Theme Park In Dubai
This is not a drill.
A 20th Century Fox film and TV-inspired theme park is headed to Dubai as the Hollywood studio follows Disney and Universal and goes deeper into destination entertainment.
Have you ever watched “Ice Age” and felt like you needed to travel back in time and hang out with Sid, Diego and the crew? Well, wonder no more! 20th Century Fox is making all of your wildest dreams come true — and there’s not time travel necessary.
The studio has inked a licensing deal with Al Ahli Holding Group to launch 20th Century Fox World, Dubai, its second immersive entertainment destination and the world’s first Fox-branded resort, it announced today (November 3). The Dubai theme park and resort is set to open in 2018.
In 2013, the studio announced its plans to build 20th Century Fox World Malaysia. The opening of that park has been pushed back to 2017.
However, this new location in Dubai will offer theme park goers themed rooms and dining opportunities that will further immerse visitors “in the rich history of 20th Century Fox.”
According to the plans, the resort will feature themed lands and attractions based on Fox properties, including, “Ice Age,” “Rio,” “Planet of the Apes,” “Aliens,” “Predator,” “Night at the Museum” and “Titanic,” “The Simpsons” and “Sons of Anarchy.” Talk about fun for the whole family — there’s a little something for everyone at 20th Century Fox World. But none for you, Jack Dawson, because you’re dead.
The park will offer a mix of media-based dark rides, which screams “Aliens” to us, to thrill rides, like the “Planet of the Apes” ride, that will tell new stories back on Fox film and TV brands.
Wait, but Fox does know Jax was — spoiler alert — killed off in the “Sons of Anarchy” series finale, right? GASP. Will we get to ride with Jax and the guys of Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club’s Redwood Original again?! Sign us up.
2018 has never seemed further away.
