Brilio.net - Wondering where you can go to take a vacation next year or even beyond?
We've listed a couple of under development theme parks that will soon make their mark on the cities they're situated in.
From Dubai to Shanghai, from Disney to Universal, here are a few notable theme parks to take our collective breaths away:
1. Twentieth Century Fox World (Malaysia)

One of two theme park ventures in development from the movie producing giants (the other one is in Dubai), the forthcoming park will be located in Resorts World Genting, Malaysia. Upon opening, it will feature no less than 25 rides inspired by the distributor's long list of films and shows.
2. "Hunger Games" themed park (United States)

Planned to be built near Atlanta, Georgia, this particular theme park will specialize in recreating the experience of the Hunger Games franchise. The Atlanta park is part of Lionsgate's effort in developing theme parks with Dubai and Macau parks already in the pipeline.
3. Disney's Star Wars Land (United States)

When Walt Disney first acquired the rights to Star Wars, it was only a matter of time before they integrated this newly owned franchise into their theme parks. Enter Star Wars Land that's being developed at both Disneyland, California and Walt Disney World in Florida. Visitors will get a chance to climb on board the Millenium Falcon and immerse themselves in the batlle against the dark side.
4. Shanghai Disneyland (China)

5. Paramount London (United Kingdom)

The first of its kind, Paramount London from the production house giant will be situated just outside of London. The park that's slated to open in 2020 will no doubt feature an array of innovative and fun rides that will hook visitors the minute the walk in the doors.

In a departure from the traditional ride and thrill ambiance of theme parks, Singapore's planned Funtasy Island is set to be the "world's largest eco-theme park." Set to soft launch in early 2016, the park will allow visitors to snorkel, go walks inside a lush rainforest, and even swim with whale sharks.
7. IMG Worlds of Adventure (United Arab Emirates)
