The new theme park, set to open in 2017, is to be developed in partnership with Meraas Leisure and Entertainment LLC, and will be located within the multi-themed park project in Jebel Ali launched by Meraas.
Jim Reid-Anderson, Chairman, President and CEO of Six Flags Entertainment, said, "The cornerstone of our international expansion strategy has always been finding the right partner in the right location and, with Meraas in Dubai, we have done exactly that. We are honored to be working with this world-class organization as the first significant strategic step taking the Six Flags brand to growing and successful markets outside North America."
