    I work with a guy from Iraq who has been to Dubai many times. He says it's the Vegas of the middle east.

    They are building all kinds of craziness there including a huge theme park with Universal (dinosaur area, etc) and all kinds of other stuff. If you do a search on youtube you can find this hour long promo movie about everything they are doing in Dubai.

    All I can say is that if global warming is right, all those man made island will be under water...what a waste if it happens...

    Excellent point. Maybe they will just build mechanical platforms underneath all the islands to make them rise into the air. Nothing is impossible in Dubai.

    They should do commercials for "My Dubai". In the commercials, they should ask people from a variety of ages and backgrounds what their wildest dreams are. Then, they will make their wildest dreams come true. For example, if a little kid with a terminal illness says "I want to walk through a candy cane forest and swim in the Ice Cream Sea!", Dubai will construct a forest of candy canes and a sea of ice cream for said child. Then afterwards, they'll say the slogan: "My Dreams? My Dubai" and show the little kid licking ice cream off of his face.

    Cool Stuff: Dubai Building $1 Billion Robotic Jurassic Park

    Posted on Tuesday, December 18th, 2007 at 6:06 pm by: Peter Sciretta

    Restless Planet

    The idea of Jurassic Park has always intrigued me. After taking the splash on the theme park ride at Universal Studios in Hollywood, I often wondered why a whole theme park couldn’t be created around this idea. And now it is finally happening.

    A new $1.1 billion Jurassic theme park called Restless Planet, is being built in Dubai. The park will feature 109 animatronic dinosaurs of over 40 different species in a 500,000 square foot (46,000 square metre) space. The new park will be the star attraction of a large Las Vegas-esque entertainment and business development called City of Arabia.

    Restless Planet

    Restless PlanetRestless Planet will mix entertainment with educational content. Managing director Mustafa Galadari promises an “Extremely realistic and scary” but also “scientifically accurate environment.” Palaeontologist Jack Horner, best known as the technical advisor on Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park, and the inspiration for the character of Alan Grant in Michael Crichton’s original book, is also on board advising the designers of the park.

    Not many details have been revealed, but we do know that the park will use “computer graphics and high-tech special effects to take visitors from the Big Bang through the birth of the Earth, the creation of its mountains and oceans, and on to the age of the dinosaurs.”

    Restless Planet

    The sets are being produced by Impossible Pictures, the same people that created the BBC television series Walking with Dinosaurs. The robotic dinosaurs are being created by animatronics experts, the Tokyo-based Kokoro Company of Japan. The Kokoro Company has prior experience in the Dinosaur realm, having created animatronic creatures for the National History Museum in London. One of the creatures at the Museum, is a T-Rex which targets and tracks visitors who are wearing red as if they were prey.

    That's beautiful. This is like the exact opposite of the creationist museum, and being built in the Middle East of all places. How I love Dubai.

    My little Irish friend from Tuscon kept threatening to move to Dubai and then he totally rued out. I was glad.

    I bet they are making real dinosaurs for that theme park, not animatronic ones. It's Dubai.

    Du vin, du pain, Dubai: emirate to clone Lyons
    Hotel de Ville Lyon

    Matthew Campbell in Paris

    NOT content with admiring Europe from afar, the Arab emirate of Dubai is to build a replica of Lyons under a £350m deal signed with the French city last week.

    The French like to talk of their “civilising mission” abroad, but duplicating Lyons’s main cultural, gastronomic and sporting institutions in the middle of the desert was not their idea: it is the obsession of Saeed al-Gandhi, a Dubai businessman.

    “He fell in love with Lyons while strolling along the river-bank,” said José Noya, an official at Lyons town hall. “He wants to recreate Lyons’s soul.”

    Inspiration struck al-Gandhi while he was drawing up plans to build a French-language university in Dubai in partnership with the University of Lyons. Not wanting to be outdone by Abu Dhabi, another Arab emirate, which has announced it will build its own version of the Louvre, al-Gandhi hit upon the idea of “Lyons-Dubai City”, as the new metropolis will be known, or “Lyons’s oriental little sister”, as they call it in the French town hall.

    Lyons and Dubai had already signed a “pact of cooperation and friendship” but al-Gandhi’s idea adds a new twist to twinning: the new Lyons will cover an area of about 700 acres, roughly the size of the Latin Quarter of Paris, and will contain squares, restaurants, cafes and museums.

    Al-Gandhi could have picked a worse place. Famed as the home of gastronomy and the birthplace of cinema, Lyons sits between two of France’s best-known wine-growing regions. Even so, Dubai is unlikely to want to copy the decrepit tower blocks that ring the real city, symbols of the urban violence that periodically plagues France. Nor is the country’s recent smoking ban in public places expected to be exported.

    The desert city will include a Paul Bocuse Institute, like the one in Lyons named after the hallowed chef, in which students will study hotel management and gastronomy.

    “We are setting up the new school in Dubai because the tourism industry is really developed there,” said Hervé Fleury of the institute. “The demand for able managers is enormous.”

    There will also be a football training centre run by the Olympique Lyonnais team, prompting dreams in Dubai of the little-known national XI qualifying one day for the World Cup.

    Apparently they are calling this push Dubailand. They are going to have a Universal Studios, a dinosaur theme park, shopping, a sports city (not sure what that is, it says it on the website) and much more.

    Dubai's still okay, I guess. I don't know. My respect has waned since this thread was first made (which was like 9 months ago, whoah). So yeah. I'm not really into Dubai anymore.

    I think I've grown up considerably in the last 9 months. I mean, I threw away all the shirts I had that said stuff like, "DUBAI RULES" and "EMIRATE! AMIRITE?" I called it up to tell it that I thought it had changed and it hung up on me. So, yeah. Fuck Dubai, pretty much. I bet it has crabs.

    Hey, you're just jealous that the Israeli government isn't using it's blood money for entertainment purposes, rather than hijacking the homes and property of the Palestinian people... And advanced weaponry, et. all.

    Uhhh...I don't think you can talk shit about Disney. In fact, for just quoting that, they're probably on their way to my house to kill or enslave me.

    If Dubai sprays vanilla into the air on the streets to enhance your mood like Disney, there's a good chance I'm moving there.
