    Wanda Group (not Sunac) is slowly going back to developing new attractions in China, in this case it's Lanzhou Wanda City:















    This 30 billion yuan project includes an indoor ocean park (aquarium), indoor waterpark, indoor sports park, indoor snow park and an observation tower named Lanzhou Tower. All of these (except the tower which is across the street) are connected by the Wanda Mall and will open in 2022. Adjacent to but separate from Lanzhou Wanda City is the upcoming Lanzhou Olympic Sports Center.

    Looks like a couple of cranes have gone up at the Donkey Kong area unless they were already used for phase one and just being stored there...



    Also this is random but an executive-type person was spotted at Universal Studios Japan today with a Super Nintendo World-specific bag - this shows of course the magnitude of the upcoming area similar to that of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter:

    Another major construction update today - thanks to Douyin there's more to share than can fit in a single post so check back later today or tomorrow for another update that includes Jurassic World Isla Nublar, WaterWorld, Hollywood, and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

    According to an article from today, the main structure of Universal Studios Beijing has been completed, and the stage of installation and commissioning of rides has been fully entered. The number of management personnel and construction workers onsite currently exceeds 20,000.

    Here's a view of it from further down the resort's river, which already has a little water in it and the bridge crossing the river connects CityWalk to the theme park just like in Orlando



    Once guests cross the bridge from CityWalk, they’ll see The Universal Studios Grand Hotel and walk under it into the theme park

    The grand opening of Chongqing Sunac Cultural Tourism City has been delayed again. Before the coronavirus it was supposed to open April 30, 2020. In March it was pushed to July 30, 2020. Now, the plan is for Sunac Water Park and Sunac Snow Park to both begin trial operations on August 6 and then the official opening of those two parks plus Sunac Ocean Park and Sunac Mall will be on August 26. The outdoor theme park, Sunac Land, will have its grand opening now on September 26, 2020, which is one week after the opening of Sunac Land in Chengdu, similarly to how the Sunac Lands in Wuxi and Guangzhou opened a week apart last year.









    On July 10, two sea lions, Oscar and Sally, arrived at Sunac Ocean Park ahead of next month's opening

    Happy Snow Park and Happy Water Park at Xiangjiang Happy City, developed by Hunan Xiangjiang New Area Investment Group, officially opened on July 11. The structure that makes up both parks, designed by COOP HIMMELB(L)AU, is "positioned directly on top of a historical cement mining quarry pit and lake" in Changsha, China. The large ski resort is inside and the outdoor waterpark is located on top. FORREC designed the waterpark and describes it as follows:

    FORREC took full advantage of the site’s precipitous 30-meter difference in elevation to design a breathtaking multi-level water park with an exotic south seas theme. From the main level, featuring an exciting surf attraction, iconic water coaster and extraordinary wave pool, guests can descend into the Deep Pit on a series of plunging body slides or a thrilling raft slide.

    The pit itself is home to a dizzying selection of raft slides, a leisure pool and promenade. Stunningly integrated onto the roof of an existing building, the family area offers abundant water play options for all ages. Throughout the park, gigantic sculptures, inspired by the cultures of Bali and the South Pacific, act as Water Guardians that welcome and guide guests on their journey of discovery.


































    This is what the quarry pit looked like prior to construction:





    The next phase of the Xiangjiang Happy City development is Changsha Haichang Happy Ocean Park, designed by IRMS and KBXD, which recently started construction:
