Well public public space. Seem huge to me and will devide up the city in ways but development around it would be grand. Still such big open spaces what change for the dust bowl that has always been there. If all the sand is paved over maybe this will forever change the wind storm and the like form this area

trances, i agree with you about that car thing. if you can build up then you can get on a lower level and have some shade rather than getting into your car on a hot day and the car is MUCH hotter. looks nice though. pano towers are always nice! :cool:

Dh120m edutainment centre to be set up



A spaceship-themed edutainment centre will be built at a cost of Dh120 million at the upcoming Zabeel Technology Theme Park. Set to open in early 2006, the Stargate Family Edutainment Centre when completed will attract around one million people annually to the facility. The edutainment centre will cover 260,000 square feet and will have part of the facilities underground.

The complex will include retail kiosks, exhibition wings, dining outlets, coffee shops, a children's education academy and nursery. The centre will have five dome-shaped fun zones – Saturn, Mars, Earth, a UFO zone and the moon. A pair of two aliens, Ajeeb and Gareeb, will be the hosts at the centre. The centre will have a capacity for 5,000 visitors.

In Saturn, families can enjoy the integrated and futuristic 80x40-foot 3D theatre, where edutainment experiences are brought to life via advanced laser shows.

Mars contains a children's play area called ‘Zero Gravity' that includes a roller skating track, climbing walls, a room for birthday parties as well as a colourful fun area for younger children. Earth has an electric indoor go-karting track called ‘No Speed Limit'.

The futuristic UFO zone contains a brand new robotic simulated ride and sophisticated 4D virtual reality rides; while the Moon will house a lunar ice-skating rink, with artificial snow falling every 30 minutes on the moon-style landscape.

The underground area also houses the Stargate Academy which offers pre-scheduled classes in classical arts, information technology, music and martial arts along with a world-class nursery. The under-construction Zabeel Park is set to be the largest technology theme park in the Middle East.

The municipality investment for the park is more than Dh300 million, while overall investments, including from the private sector is tipped to exceed Dh1 billion.

I really like this project, just what any other city would need. In winter it would be nice, in the summer, definately not during day time, maybe at night if it's not too humid.
