Great photos Dave.
For those of you keeping score, the suspended family coaster is an Intamin. Not sure about that flight trainer thing though.

I am curious what the Museum of Mystery
is all about?
Great shots of everything! Thanks for posting them.

I believe it’s a trackless darkride.

Looks like this park is one week away from opening. Hopefully, we hear from dubaidave in the near future.

We visited today, some.great theming but operationally it's a train crash. Posted opening is 10am, what's not said is rides from 11. Online ticket purchase didn't work from Android devices so to get the entry deal I had to borrow a staff tablet and log in, then the ticket wouldn't scan.
Pre show in the indoor main square was entertaining, Buildings covered in graffiti via projection for the Gotham sequence and dementors for Harry Potter.
Run down of the rides
Batman - ride not finished yet
Jokers Fun house is a mirror maze with the moving floors stairclimb etc of a midway portable.Maybe a batch of 30 every 10mins into it.
Scarecrow ride, never opened it's a spinning arm afair
Riddler is a 40 seat Mega Disk'o well themed but brutal slow to load managing about 4 cycles an hour
Bedrock river adventure is a one drop small world raft ride, 8 seat boats running half empty.
Justice League is motion cars like Universal's Spiderman, great HD but the storyline barely interacts with the rides, again 7 seat cars, weird load room with 3 empty seats on our group.
Green Lantern, sort of soaring type ride with no pre show story to explain what's going on at all. The theatre holds maybe 30 per cycle which is slow due to a hard to lock and check seatbelt system, again maybe 4 runs an hour.
Tom and Jerry cheese Spin, huge queue area to feed 1 train of 16 max persons per 8 to 9 min load and run cycle, you got it, 130-140 per hour. I was deloaded as at 6' the lap bar wouldn't lock, same for a woman on the train before me.
Scoobies Doo Mystery Museum, almost running right, preloaded and gated onto cars but 3 unloading with none in the load area. Ride was sort of Winnie the Pooh style with a nice corridor door chase ending.
Fast and Furry-ous coaster had 1 train of 10 on the suspended track running again maybe every 7 mins 120 pax an hour.
More than enough restaurants and retail but if you get there on a busy day, it was empty for us I would not like to see a protected 6000 trying to get onto some of these rides, unless they open a 40hour day.
Great theming in the main but the wrong rides and working practices to ever get enough bodies on the rides, we gave up as it got busier and left.
Nothing is worth a re-ride or the wait that will be required, fast pass costs an additional 150dirham $50 on top on the $90 ticket.
Not worth your time in my opinion umless your staying next door and it's a rainy day.

^Sad to hear about the miserable operations. I think this park *looks* great...aesthetically...but from everything I've seen it just doesn't look like there's much to do compared to other parks in the region. (Ridewise)

I think it's a bit soon to criticise operations. The park has only been open for a week-or-so.

True, but if a Disney park had only been officially open for a "week-or-so" and had operations as described above, it would be eviscerated by the press and GP. The truth is, this would never happen in a Disney park. Universal? Perhaps... (see Volcano Bay...)
