Alien and Predator Themed Lands are Coming to 20th Century Fox's New Theme Parks
If you were left a little underwhelmed at yesterday's news of Hunger Games attractions coming to Lionsgate's two theme parks, we've got just the remedy.

Following in the footsteps of other major studios, 20th Century Fox is currently planning a number of theme parks that will breathe new life into some of their movie and TV franchises. Details have emerged revealing which franchises will anchor their new entertainment destinations, and it's good news for fans of classic science fiction. Fox revealed that as part of a new partnership with Al Ahli Holding Group (AAHG), a new theme park will be built in Dubai, featuring rides and themed lands dedicated to the following entertainment properties:

- Alien
- Predator
- Planet of the Apes
- Ice Age
- The Simpsons
- Titanic
- Sons of Anarchy

These attractions will range from thrill rides and roller coasters to cinematic-based experiences and themed retail outlets. Further details on the attractions were not provided, but a look at concept art for the park does reveal a few clues.



Clear for all to see in the concept art is the massive replica of The Simpson's hometown of Springfield. Complete with a Krusty Burger and Nuclear Power Plant, this Simpsons land will surely be one of the park's most popular. But just above Simpson's land is an area that may be of particular interest to Sci-Fi fans. 



This particular section looks like it's got all the industrial sci-fi hallmarks of a Yutani Corp-themed Alien land. Anyone game for a haunted house packed to the rafters with Xenomorphs and Predators?

It looks like another sci-fi property that could get its own land is that of Planet of the Apes. In the top right corner of the concept map is a vast wooded settlement that almost certainly refers to the , villages of Caesar and his fellow apes.



20th Century Fox World is set to open in Dubai by 2018, while their previously announced Malaysia destination opens in 2017.
