    I work in one of the finished buildings, so this is probably most up to date information.

    The plan has been reduced dramatically just like any other ambitious Korean government projects. The size of the theme park is decreased significantly, and even the allocated land (163,174m squared) is now shared with a hotel, healing zone (probably spa complex), a water park, plaza, and a pavilion. Not sure if there will be a theme park built with good ride elements. Even concept art (second photo) does not include any rides. Some rumor was they are planning to build something like Wolmi Amusement Park which is just a park with carnival rides like the swing boat. I am hoping for a dark ride in the park, but neither city nor investors are interested in this project anymore.

  2. Two robot theme-park plans were launched in 2008... Unfortunately you can see Gyeongnam Masan Robot Land alone.

    So this may explain the confusion... It looks like there is a second robot land under construction in Gyeongnam, South Korea.





    New Construction Photos and Concept Art for Gyeongnam Robot Land in South Korea. This park is due to open in April 2019 and is due to open with a Zamperla Thunderbolt and unknown Junior Coaster.

  4. I work in a company located in 'Robot Land' tower. Only building finished for the Robot Land plan are the tower and the research center. The satellite photo posted by Sebastian on 22nd Feb 2018 is not a correct photo. Nothing is being built on the planned land space: not even a base. You can check photo I have attached. The robotland tower is on google map. link: https://goo.gl/maps/BFzBJn2x9Z22 The themepark will be built on the North of the building

    I have talked with Incheon city officials, and they told me they won't be able to start any time soon. They even mentioned the plans to decrease size of the park to a point that it is just a park with some playground elements. I really hope that does not happen, but the city cannot find sponsors and the place is too windy for a large roller coaster structures.

    Very likely its back on track because you can see that many buildings are going up:

    It looks like construction has commenced, with cranes seen in the background of that picture taken 9 Nov 2017:

    The latest Z Press news letter from Zamperla says theyve sold a Thunderbolt to Robotland South Korea opening next year. Perhaps it is back on.

  9. According to Google Maps, it looks like work is going on at the site. Is the park back online?

  10. This project is as dead in the water as Universal Studios Dubailand.
