Description: So, despite the common misconception, not EVERY new theme park/entertainment development is going on Dubai. There is a little city just up the coastline called Abu Dhabi (still in the UAE here) that is having a slight boom of its own.
Now, are we talking about a Dubailand kind of construction boom? Absolutely not, I can’t think of a project in recent history that even comes close to comparison. The projects going on in Abu Dhabi are a little different than Dubai, as where Dubai is basically one huge mega development (Dubailand), all of these projects in Abi Dhabi are being developed by different groups. These developments range from theme parks to resorts to arts venues to man made islands and everything in between. It’s kind of a shame that such exciting development is basically being swept under the rug, but hey, Dubai deserves the attention that its getting.
Below is a list of the theme park projects going on in the Abu Dhabi area. The general page – like the one for Dubai – is a page dedicated to other spectacular developments going on that don’t necessarily have to do with theme parks, but are still exciting nonetheless. Information about Abu Dhabi is a little thin considering everyone is paying attention to Dubai, but I will do my best to provide the most thorough and up to date info as possible. Enjoy!
