A massive amusement park in Dubai says it is abandoning plans to build a $454-million Six Flags.
DXB Entertainments, which runs Dubai Parks & Resorts, said in a statement filed on Thursday on the local stock market that a planned financial instrument was "no longer available and the Six Flags Dubai project cannot proceed at this time."
Plans for a Six Flags park long have circulated in Dubai.
The latest news from around North Texas.
In 2016, Dubai officials said they planned to add the park chain, owned by the Grand Prairie, Texas-based Six Flags Entertainment Corp.
The park, near the site of Dubai's 2020 World Expo, or world's fair, has struggled since opening.
Meraas Holding, a firm backed by Dubai's ruler, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, is the majority-owner of DXB Entertainments.
