Universal Studios Dubailand: A Case Study on the Rise and Fall of Dubai

manka_fun_park_yemen_2.jpgGood morning. 

Today, I was forwarded an article with the above title from FastCompany by some lackey at NBC Universal (I believe his name was JEFF ZUCKER) which has a timeline detailing their failure to build a theme park in Dubai

He wrote some cryptic note with it that said:  "You're next!"

How can I say this gently?  NO FUCKING WAY! 

Our Manka Fun Park in Yemen (as detailed in Lloyd Grohl's presentation at the Merrill Lynch Mediatainment Conference - [THEME PARK PORTION only]) is moving along nicely, thank you! 

I recently gave an update on the progress of construction and everything is moving along swimmingly.   So eat that!

For all of you who criticized our decision to build in Yemen instead of U.A.E. - SUCK IT!!!

And for all of those who said they would co-fund the theme park in Yemen... A check would be nice (or natural gas - whichever you prefer).

Disney wouldn't touch U.A.E. with a 1,000 mile pole. With the climate and the politics, forget it. The upside is minimal to the risk.

But good luck to you, Khan. It will be interesting to see how a western style theme park works in an oppressive dictatorship where women have zero rights!
