    Chimelong is planning to develop an artificial island off the coast of the current theme park. The island will have a large theater, "maritime museum" and resorts. Reclamation to form the island will take 24 months. This is in addition to the current expansion that's already under construction.

    A new Parachute Tower-type ride is being constructed at Chimelong Ocean Kingdom's 'Amazing Amazon' area of the park. It appears to be nearing completion...



    The ride looks very similar to Intamin's Toy Soldier Parachute Drop ride at Hong Kong Disneyland and Walt Disney Studios Park (https://www.hongkongdisneyland.com/attractions/toy-soldier-parachute-drop/ and http://www.disneylandparis.com/en-us/attractions/walt-disney-studios-park/toy-soldiers-parachute-drop/)

    As of April 2017 there is no construction on the plots of land that are directly north and south of Chimelong Hengqin Bay Hotel:

    North -



    South -




    There is construction though directly south of the theme park itself. This has not been 100% officially confirmed but it can be inferred that this is the location of the indoor marine park that was announced at the beginning of 2016.

    Photos of the construction site are limited and of low quality but here are some from the past few months taken by people staying at Chimelong Hengqin Bay Hotel that have views of the construction site from their room:







    Here's another angle of the construction site but unfortunately the view is obstructed by foliage:

    Even though it had already been confirmed, yesterday Chimelong officially "announced" that they have nine orcas. They are currently being held in a temporary indoor holding facility down the street from Chimelong Ocean Kingdom. They are not on display to the public yet. They will most likely be on display at the new indoor "Chimelong Marine World" which is being built across the street from Chimelong Ocean Kingdom.

    Chimelong Ocean Kingdom recently received a new species of dolphin (in addition to fur seals and otters) called the Chinese White Dolphin which is a variety of the Indo Pacific Humpbacked Dolphin. Chimelong Ocean Kingdom originally planned on housing this dolphin species when the park was originally being constructed (read second paragraph: http://www.blooloop.com/news/pgav-destinations-construction-continues-on-chime/3607#.V1irNfT3aJJ)

    Haw Par said that UWS had to vacate the facility and cease operations as the lease on the Sentosa attraction was expiring in less than two years. Its pink dolphins, fur seals and otters have been transferred to Chimelong Ocean Kingdom in Zhuhai, China.

    Chimelong Ocean Kingdom has "one of the finest facilities in the world and a strong staff with expertise in marine mammal veterinary and husbandry care, as well as an active breeding and conservation programme", said Haw Par.

    Does anyone know where the expansion is going to be located compared to the current park?

    Construction is back on at Chimelong as they begin construction on 4 new adjoining theme parks.

    Construction has started at the Chimelong Zhuhai Resort, home of Thea Award recipient Ocean Kingdom, on four new theme parks. Chimelong will invest a total of $50 billion yuan (approximately US$7.5 billion) in the resortís expansion.
