Disneyland-style makeover planned for Dubai theme park

Work is reportedly set to begin this month on a project which will see Dubai's Wonderland theme and water park transformed with the addition of new rides, water attractions, hotels, restaurants spas and retail outlets.

The DH615m (£90m, US$167m, AUD$192m, 113m euro) development is designed to be a smaller-scale version of the Disneyland and Universal Studios theme parks in the United States. The work is scheduled for completion in 2010.

Emirates business 24/7 quotes the park's general manager, Dr Jumana El Khoury, as saying that the project will be managed by Wend International. Visitor numbers are expected to rise to 1.5 million in the first year of operation and to 4.5 million by 2015.
