Six Flags insolvency will not delay Dubailand
"The chapter 11 announcement from Six Flags has no impact on our theme park plans or their openings," Tatweer told Reuters. "We have nothing to add and will not make any announcement regarding our development plans in the context of Six Flag's financial restructuring."

The park will stretch over five-million square feet, will feature 30 rides.
