DUBAI-The three-billion-sf Dubailand development has secured another entertainment tenant: Six Flags. The amusement park giant has agreed to open its first park outside of North America in Dubai. The five-million-sf Six Flags Dubailand will be the first of a chain of Six Flags parks slated for development in the Arab world. Company officials have not release the financial terms of the deal.

Six Flags has forged an agreement with Tatweer, Dubailand’s developer, to create the theme park. In addition, Tatweer and Six Flags Dubailand also have agreed to create new concepts across the region, such as Six Flags theme parks, branded restaurants, hotels and retail outlets.

Dubailand has already inked deals with other theme parks and entertainment companies. It will include Universal Studios Dubailand, the Tiger Woods Dubai golf complex, and DreamWorks Animation Park–a five-million-sf theme park, which alone is projected to be twice the size of Florida’s Walt Disney World.
