Falcon City of Wonders

11 posts in this topic

I read about Dubai's exponential rise these past years and its explosion into the international scene, and then I think back to what HH Sheikh Mohammed once said. Paraphrasing his quote: "All these developments in Dubai that you see, these are only 10% of my final vision for this city". And then, you fall upon Dubai's latest project, the Falcon City of Wonders, and you also wonder: damn, if this is still part of the 10 percent, what in the name of all that is holy are you planning to do with this city???

So they already have the World, what

After seeing all the ads of this development on TV and my friends calling me up about it, I did some searching around for the video online but couldnt find anything.

The Falcon City website has a trashy design and it makes me wonder, if they have all that money for the project, you would expect them to have done a good website. Anyway, I found this link useful.

This looks like a giant tourist trap if you ask me. I've heard that the Eiffel Tower in Falcon City is actually suppose to be taller than the one in Paris.

Great Image DBB, that last one really cleared up what all was going in this development.

Welcome to Falcon city, the worst project in Dubai.

Why would anyone visit this when you can go see burj dubai

The thing is, this would be a great project if they made a theme park out of it, with giant rollercoasters going through the eiffel tower and the likes. This would be great instead of turning wonders of the world into a shopping centre.

So it's just a bunch of shopping centers?

It still looks impressive and amazing, but could be done better. Like you said malec, If theme parks were intergrated into this, it would be the City of Wonders.

A theme park based on the wonders of the world is a great idea but this project is just a bunch of tacky villas and shops. There is a small theme park there but they need to get rid of all the villas and put this there instead. There are already more than enough res developments in dubailand and dubai in general. What dubailand surprisingly doesn't have yet is a megapark full of the scariest, tallest rollercoasers imaginable. If falcon city was turned into this, it would be one of the best projects there. Unfortunately it's not, it's just a res and shopping project, something which is abundant in Dubai

I remember I used to love rollercoastertycoon and I'm thinking of the crazy rides I could build using a wonders of the world theme :D
