Anyone up for a trip to Dubai in 2012?

I've never been particularly amused by amusement parks -- blame traumatic childhood visits to Kings Island and Kings Dominion -- but the long-developing Marvel park in Dubai could be enough to change that. Y'know, if I should ever find myself in the United Arab Emirates.

I say that after waking up to this stunning concept art from Chimera Design, discovered by the Disney and More blog. The lush illustrations include a map of the $1-billion park -- it's divided into four "lands," with Crater Lake at the center -- and renditions of the entrance, the City of Super-Heroes and Oasis of Magic. Visit Disney and More to see all 14 images.

Announced in 2007, the theme park is being developed by Marvel Entertainment and UAE-based construction and real estate company Al Ahli Group. The project initially was set to open in 2011, but now appears to be on track for 2012.
