No Shamu for Dubai

shamushowDubai wants to become the new and big tourist capitol of the world but with the world’s economy going down like a roller coaster so are the projects of Dubai. One big project scrapped is SeaWorld. Seaworld was going to be build on a Shamu like island. Together with Aquatica, a water park, it would open in 2012. Discovery Cove was going to follow with an opening set for 2015.

This is a big project they scrapped and one must wonder how the others feel about their parks and tourist attraction planned to open or to be build in Dubai.

Let’s hope economy will get better soon. If so the plans to build the parks might get new life.

Busch and Nakheel remained committed to the project and would move forward “when economic conditions permit.”(Orlando Sentinel)
