Dubailand is an entertainment complex being built in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, which is owned by Tatweer (which belongs to Dubai Holding). When announced in 2003 it was one of the most ambitious leisure developments ever proposed anywhere in the world costing $64.3 billion, but development has been severely impacted by global recession and Dubai’s financial crisis. The development was put on hold in 2008 but resumed in mid-2013. Updates in 2013 show that $55 billion has been raised towards the works. Current estimates predict that Dubailand will open before 2020
The firms, Tour Brokers International, Wakanow, Quantum-Ajala, based in Lagos, and All States Travels based in Abuja are to provide exclusive information and marketing support services on behalf of Dubai Parks and Resorts to the teeming Nigerian and West African visitors.
According to the management, Dubai Parks and Resorts showcased the full range of the themed park experiences to specially invited partners and other travel trade at a dedicated event held at the Wheatbaker Hotel in Lagos.
The park, however, is set to bring unprecedented amazing themed park experiences to millions of visitors across the world, including Nigeria, beginning from October 31, 2016, when it officially opens the new ‘Wonderland’.
