    Currently named ‘Construction 2018’ the ride is said to feature the highest number of ‘interactions’ in the world with 15 and will cross five other park rides and pass through two tunnels.
    She (Amanda Thompson, Director of BPB) said: “Construction 2018 follows in the long tradition we have at Blackpool Pleasure Beach of investing in fantastic rides and bringing first of their kind rollercoasters to the UK. “Blackpool Pleasure Beach, the world’s most ride intensive amusement park, is home to the UK’s first looping coaster, Revolution, and, at the time it was built, the world’s tallest and fastest rollercoaster, The Big One, plus many more thrilling rides. “I’m delighted to be able to continue this tradition and bring such a thrilling ride to the UK.”

    Now that Shanghai Dinseyland is "complete," I thought I'd share some future Shanghai Disneyland updates here:

    Satellite imagery on Google Maps showing the newly opened Shanghai Disneyland!

    Let's take a look at some potential future developments around the resort's property:

    Looks like some work is being done behind the current Tomorrowland where the Tomorrowland expansion will open


    The land adjacent to Shanghai Disneyland Resort looks like it's ready for another resort to be built


    Perfect location for a resort right between transit station and entrance

    SeaWorld San Diego is breaking ground today on a new "realm" called 'Ocean Explorer' which includes multiple new rides in which the main new ride takes guests around in moving pods to see multiple marine animal exhibits. This "realm" was designed by PGAV.

    Universal just put in a patent application for a totally new type of ride which sounds interesting and could be Wizarding World related.





    "The interactive game ride may also provide the benefit of a dynamic narrative that changes in response to interest from the game players. For example, if a family with small children is participating in the ride, the game may receive input on the player ages to select appropriate game environments. Alternatively or additionally, the player interactions with the game may also influence the game to provide feedback. In one example, the game is a series of puzzle rooms, and the actions that the players take within each scene or puzzle change the environment and allow different paths to be activated or different physical effects to take place," said the patent.
    The patent uses the example of a "wizard-themed game" that could have riders use different wands associated with characters and use those wands at specific moments to score points, competing with opposing teams or to accomplish a joint goal. "In certain embodiments, the score input may include input from external sensors that capture player motion, such as wand motion, and provide the motion characteristics as input to a score determination algorithm. If the wand motion is associated with a particular spell that is an effective spell for the game, the player's score may be updated to indicate a successful 'freezing spell' or other spell has been cast," said the patent.

    SW8 project at Alton Towers, UK is confirmed as a new wooden rollercoaster to take the place of the ageing logflume.



    Perhaps one of the most intriguing aspects of the plans is the indication that there will be a 140 second pre-show just prior to the main station, however there is no indication as to exactly what this pre-show will entail.




    If this latest application is successful, it is anticipated that construction could begin as soon as September 2016 with an anticipated completion date of December 2017, a schedule which would suggest a target opening date of the start of the 2018 season.

    Now renamed Ain Dubai (probably due to legalities around the Eye brand) the wheel has now been realigned and spindle is in its final place.

    Construction is being slated for the end of 2016 but there still looks to be a long way to go.
