    You may recall that I posted in January that Chimelong Group had acquired 420,000 square meters of land across the street from Chimelong Ocean Kingdom for about 32 million US dollars. The land is connected to the new railway station being built (expected to be operational by the end of the year). Now, Chimelong has submitted a construction permit for "Chimelong Adventure Park," a new third gate that will be part of Chimelong International Ocean Tourist Resort. Chimelong Adventure Park will be on the 420,000 square meters of land that was purchased in January. The land is mountainous and was originally planned to be used for a hilltop observation wheel, observation tower, and large wooden coaster. Chimelong earlier this month shared that preparations are underway for a "gondola lift" and "mountaintop park." I believe that Chimelong Adventure Park will be the mountaintop park and guests will take gondola lifts to reach the park.

    Location of Chimelong Adventure Park:

    The "Fun Zone," "Ocean Outdoor Theatre," and "Sea Birds Paradise" areas of the park have were closed off earlier this month so construction can begin on on the new themed land that will be taking over those area. The new themed land, which can be seen on left side of the newly released park map (pictured below), will include everything in the three currently closed areas plus two new Zierer coasters, a Zamperla Samba Tower, and three other unidentified structures (maybe new animal exhibits?). The new themed land is opening this summer. Pictured below in addition to the map are exclusive photos from earlier this month of the now closed area of the park:

    Earlier this month, Chimelong successfully completed the concrete pouring of their upcoming killer whale exhibit's main pool. The main pool, which is pictured in this post, is 100 meters long and 30 meters wide and its design is described as appearing "similar to the shape of a big fish."

    EXCLUSIVE: New themed area featuring a Zierer coaster is coming to Chimelong Ocean Kingdom!





    I came across this construction permit which I believe is for the pictured expansion: http://www.hengqin.gov.cn/hengqin/xxgk/201802/7ec2d1d6d5bd4ff0b043981e9f0c0821.shtml

    The new themed area will be located near the Ocean Outdoor Theater and Sea Bird Paradise.

    EXCLUSIVE: I’m proud to share my favorite construction photos yet - new, up-close photos from the construction site of Chimelong’s new indoor marine park that’s across the street from Chimelong Ocean Kingdom. This 360,000 square meter complex, which is costing over half a billion US dollars to build, will be home to Chimelong’s killer whales.









    The project's environmental impact report from June 2017 states a fourth quarter 2018 completion date. Despite construction progressing rapidly, expect the completion date to be pushed back to 2019 or potentially even 2020.

    Earlier this month China Construction Third Bureau First Engineering Co. Ltd. won the bid at the cost of 3.2 billion yuan for Chimelong Zhuhai's indoor marine park project. According to the construction company, the project's total construction area is ​​about 360,000 square meters and the height of the complex will be about 60 meters. Details about what this project will entail are minimal but according to the source the main show stadium (for the killer whale show) will have 5,000 seats. In comparison, Shamu Stadium at SeaWorld Orlando is 6000 seats. Also, the main aquarium tank will feature the world's largest acrylic glass panel which will be 46.2 meters wide and 8.2 metres high. Across the street at Chimelong Ocean Kingdom, their record breaking whale shark aquarium's acrylic glass panel is 39.6 meters wide and 8.3 metres high.

    Two updates regarding long term expansion plans for the resort:

    1. Chimelong Group recently acquired a little over 100 acres (420,000 square meters) of land across the street from Chimelong Ocean Kingdom for about 32 million US dollars. The land is right behind the new railway station being built. It looks like its the same land that Chimelong was going to use for an observation wheel, observation tower and wooden roller coaster (concept art for that is the thumbnail of this thread).

    2.
    According to the State Oceanic Administration (SOA) on Wednesday, China will prohibit business-oriented land reclamation activities and halt all reclamation projects that do not conform with relevant policies, launching the strictest-ever measures to control reclamation.

    The authority of local governments to approve land reclamation will also be abolished.

    This came after a special inspection into the matter by the SOA, which has found serious problems in the approval, monitoring and purposes of reclamation.
    This may affect Chimelong's plans for a new artificial island that would be formed through land reclamation just down the street from Chimelong Ocean Kingdom off the coast of Hengqin Island.
