    New high resolution layout of Chimelong Qingyuan Forest Resort

    A few attractions can clearly be identified in the layout including a 5D theater, a kiddie roller coaster, a central body of water for shows, a tiger-themed river rapids (fun fact: originally Disney's Animal Kingdom's river rapids was going to be tiger-themed), and a hippopotamus-themed log flume/splashdown-type ride. I am not able to spot the previously announced signature giraffe castle, world's largest aviary, and hilltop observation wheel. Can anyone spot any of those?



    As of March 2018, land has been completely cleared for the four resorts that can be seen in the top right of the layout. The two resorts located along the animals exhibits are currently under construction. Little to no land clearing has taken place so far for the theme park itself.

    Note the waterpark layout pictured below and in the top right of the main layout. I spot about 10 waterslides, a large lazy river, two wave pools, and an aqua coaster.

    New satellite imagery from earlier this month shows that construction is progressing but very slowly.



    Also new concept art for the theme park's huge giraffe castle and nearby zebra-themed hotel has been released:

    It is not cancelled - permits and plans as recently as this month keep getting submitted for the park. Example: http://www.qyup.gov.cn/cxghj/cags/201802/afc8fdc0506c4eae884d2ba35b457429.shtml

    There's a new train line slated for opening alongside the resort.



    According to the plan, the green line from the Guangqing Industrial Park in the northeast, followed by the Merrill Lynch Lake, Silver Light characteristics of the town, Changlong Forest Resort theme park, to Changlong South China tiger provenance base.
    The project will be built in two phases, the initial realization of Guangqing inter-city silver station and Changlong theme park connectivity, later through the east and west to extend the two directions. The initial project line is 8.55 kilometers long, with 3 stops. Respectively, silver lamp, long Avenue, long theme park.

    I was able to finally find a somewhat high resolution layout of not the entire resort area but of the main theme park that's currently under construction. This layout is from 2015 so the actual layout could be different than what is shown above.

    The main theme park itself which had its groundbreaking ceremony back in December 2016 will cost about $1.5 billion USD
