    New patents filed for Universal, no indication of specific parks as yet.



    A Jurassic World Gyrosphere Ride?
    Letís start with the obvious. Franchise producer Frank Marshall has mentioned in the past that Universal has wanted to make a ride based on the gyrosphere vehicles seen in Jurassic World and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. And here you go: a ride design that looks to place the rider within a spherical vehicle with a striking resemblance to whatís seen on the screen. The technical jargon describes a ride that would provide all the physical thrills of being bounced around in a giant glass ball by angry dinosaurs:

    Movement of the passenger support system, and thus, the passenger, within the annular structure, causes the sensation of airflow around the passengerís body (e.g., arms and legs) and may allow the passenger a heightened amusement ride experience. Additionally, relatively minor movement of the passenger support system may create additional forces on the riderís body due, in part, to the distribution of gravitational forces. The combination of physical effects such as airflow and g-forces, along with visual effects such as a visual effect device, screen, or facade may provide the passenger with an immersive amusement ride experience.


    A Zelda Horse-Riding Attraction?
    The second patent isnít quite as specific, and itís built to simulate the experience of riding a motorcycle or a horse. Hereís more:

    By positioning the rider in a facedown position or on a vehicle that, at least in some orientations, permits a downward gaze, the rider may experience a sensation and feeling of horseback riding, motorcycling, or the like. Additionally, the disclosed rider support assembly may allow the rider to experience sudden moments of positive and negative gravitational forces (e.g., g-forces) that enhance the sensation of riding or motorcycling, and provide a more pleasurable riding experience.

    So, what ride could we be looking at here? With Universal bringing Super Nintendo World to its parks in the next few years, I canít help but wonder if this will be themed to The Legend of Zelda, the iconic video game franchise about exploring a dangerous fantasy world, often on the back of your trusty steed. Itís still not clear where Super Nintendo World will open in Universal Orlando (if maybe that fourth unnamed park), but there have been additional rumors that Zelda will be spun off into its own land entirely, away from the Mario-centric core world (which will host a ride based around Mario Kart).

    The real #ostrovmečty with mysterious worlds and interesting interactive rides are waiting for you next fall. And now, the cladding of the entrance group of the park, which looks like the watchtower of the fairy castle. Already Built 30-metre monolithic grounds, with steelwork, they are brought to a 75-metre height comparable to the height of a 25-Storey House.
    This maximum height is due to the construction restrictions associated with the nearby UNESCO World Heritage sites - the complex of the museum-reserve "kolomenskoye".

    Also, new permits show the layout of the hotel and seem to indicate there will be shuttle buses rather than a walk through from the hotel to the park.



    According to the permits, rooms come in two sizes: a regular sized cabin and the larger first class cabin. The first floor has 32 regular cabins and two first class cabins. If the second floor has the same layout, the Star Wars hotel could have as little as 68 total rooms.

    The one noteworthy, and exciting, development here is that two spires are rising atop the front of this show building to form the unmistakable form of a castle. Weíre actually slightly surprised that Beastís Castle is being erected this early into construction, but perhaps Disney or OLC are considering that free marketing?

    Everyone walking through Tomorrowland can see the beginnings of that castle rising above the construction walls, and once it takes a more fully-formed shape, itís going to start garnering more attention. Seeing Beastís Castle is a pretty effective way to convince guests to plan return visits!

    Warner Bros have announced a hotel expansion

    Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak from Miral Asset Management said: ďA Warner Bros hotel here is a certainty. Itís coming a couple of years from now.

    ďIt will be connected to some extent to the actual theme park so it is almost a two minute walk. It is the first of its kind for Warner Bros and will have a hint of it in the rooms.Ē

    The hotel will have eight levels and 156 rooms. There will also be a seven-floor block containing 156 apartments. The land surrounding the hotel will be kept clear for possible future expansion.

    Europa-Park unveiled this Tuesday evening an ambitious and innovative cable car project on the Rhine. The Mack family, owner of Europa-Park, are working on new developments, at five or ten years, with amongst other projects a cable car that would cross the Rhine into France. Roland Mack and his eldest son, Michael Mack presented their cross-border project Sunday to French President Emmanuel Macron.
    Still at the stage of the project's beginnings, Europa-Park cannot currently give precise information, such as the exact length of the cable car. Two variants are under study, more than five kilometers long: between Rust and Rhinau or between Rust and Diebolsheim.

    In the end, the project could also include the construction of a hotel and even a third park on the French side. The details are currently being examined in consultation with the French and German administrations. Europa-Park has more than one million visitors from France each year, and more than 1,000 employees commute between Alsace and Rust on a daily basis.

    Opening in spring of 2020, LEGOLAND New York is set to be the largest LEGO amusement park ever constructed. Unlike the completely indoor LEGOLAND Discovery Center in Yonkers, the new park will be spread over 150 acres (surrounded by another 150 acres of woodland) in Goshen just off Route 17. As construction ramps up, we were lucky enough to get an inside peek at what the massive resort will look like when completed.

    the wall is painted ďgo away greenĒ, a popular color at Disney Parks meant to be as unobtrusive as possible. At this point, it looks like we can expect a big green box looming over the Epcot parking lot for decades to come.




    Also visible from the parking lot is the launch and return tunnel that connects the newly constructed gravity building and the backside of the gutted Universe of Energy structure.
