With responses gathered from 2,000 participants over six months, a significant portion of respondents (81%) were from Ras Al Khaimah, indicating strong local interest and engagement.

Scheduled to open in 2026 on Marjan Island, this development marks a significant milestone in the region's tourism and entertainment scene.
