The UAE’s leisure and entertainment market potential is expected to nearly double to 45 million visitors by 2021, according to a new report by international audit firm PwC. Most of the visitors (30 million) are likely to be international tourists, while residents, their relatives and friends will account for 15 million. Also, by 2021, the country’s theme parks are forecast to attract 18 million visits, according to the “UAE’s transformation into a world-class leisure & entertainment destination” report. The UAE is expected to see five additional theme parks by 2018, such as Six Flags, IMG Worlds of Adventure, Dubai Parks and Resorts (all three set to open in Dubai) and Warner Bros in Abu Dhabi.
