    For years now, there has been talk in South Korea about a robot theme park. Construction was supposed to start in 2009, but it never happened. (Heck, several years ago, I spent some time in South Korea talking to researchers about it for a magazine article.) There was a website and lots of talk, but construction never started. Until now.

    Recently, the park held a groundbreaking ceremony to mark the start of construction. That means Robot Land is really happening. Or rather, building Robot Land is really happening! Above, you can see an image from the ceremony.

    Located in Incheon, Robot Land will have exhibitions and rides, a waterpark, a shopping area, an R&D centre, a post-grad robotics school, and a robotics institute. Sprawling 8.1 million square feet, there will be a “Robot Kingdom”, a “Robot City” and a “Kidbot Village”.

    Sounds like this project is dead, or half dead, at the very least!

    I don't know, to me this theme park looks like it was never meant to be built anyway, it looks somewhat... cheap, maybe? Is that the right word?

    The municipality has pushed to build Robot Land in the Cheongna Area within the Incheon Free Economic Zone by 2014, but recently changed its plans. It has decided to open some facilities as scheduled, including a robotics institute, but delayed the construction of for-profit facilities including a theme park.

    The project adjustment was a result of the ongoing real estate market woes.

    “We adjusted the Robot Land project in 2010 due to the slump in real estate, which is a major source of revenue for the city,” another official said. “We are trying to secure private-sector investment to implement the project in stages.”
