In 2007, Marvel Entertainment announced its plans to open a theme park in Dubai. Now concept designs from the project have emerged, revealing lots of Spider-Man-themed thrills, a rocket-powered Stark Labs, and a city filled with Superheroes.

There's no word on how Disney's recent acquisition of Marvel (or Dubai's recent economic woes) will affect the development of the Marvel park in Dubai, but reportedly the plan is to open its doors in 2012. Off-site testing has already begun on at least three attractions: Flying with Spidey, Fantasticar and X-Men: Danger Room.

These concept illustrations come from Chimera Design, and show several designs from the park's planned City of Super Heroes, as well as a map of the park.
