    The good news is it seems that some form of construction is actually taking place!





    The bad news is that apparently new financial problems have arisen regarding this past summer's construction company switch (Hyundai Engineering & Construction Co. and STX Construction Co.) and Gangwon Jungdo-developments Corp. (GJC), an investment arm of Gangwon Province. I'm not totally clear on what is happening but it seems that GJC is low on funds and is considering selling the land around Legoland such as where the theme park's parking lot will be located.

    A great photo straight from Walt Disney Imagineering showing a scale model of part of the upcoming Frozen themed-land (likely called "Arendelle: World of Frozen") plus an overhead layout in the background, elevation illustrations, and more:

    The second phase of construction will begin in the second half of 2021, involving 1.3 trillion won in investment to build an indoor theme park by Paramount Pictures. The outdoor theme park will be completed by 2024.
    Paramount Korea, a Paramount Pictures-branded theme park slated to open in 2025 near the Incheon airport, is betting on differentiated contents and scale compared to local players such as Everland and Lotte World, according to the US filmmaker’s top official.

    Paramount Pictures’ first-ever international theme park will span over 404,600-square-meter area in Yeongjongdo, Incheon, with 40 branded attractions and integrated retail, dining and entertainment.

    “(Our strength will synergize with) Korean culture that embraces going to a theme park. We are creating a theme park that is really good for the whole family, providing a holistic experience for both parents and children,” said Ty Granaroli, senior vice president of Paramount Pictures, during a press meeting with Korean journalists in Connecticut on Sunday local time.

    When asked what will differentiate Paramount Korea from existing theme parks Everland and Lotte World, Granaroli said it is the storytelling power that the company has.

    “We are storytellers. We create movies and contents, and have a legacy of storytelling. People love great stories. But I think successful theme parks in the world are mostly based on their intellectual property,” said Granaroli.

    “We will continue to add new stories to our theme park, as we will make more movies in the future,” he added.

    The attractions will be based on the storylines of globally hit movies such as “Mission Impossible” and “Star Trek” spin-offs, and also have Korean culture and storylines, Paramount said.

    “There will be a special show called ‘Dreams of Korea,’ which will include stories and the history of Korea,” said Granaroli, adding that other live entertainment shows including day and night parades will be designed to keep visitors extend duration of visit.

    A number of attractions will be K-pop-themed, where they will be operated along with music and performances, according to Paramount.

    “Every ride (at the K-pop-themed zone) will have K-pop music onboard. This area will be like a K-pop music festival,” said Granaroli, adding that the iconic water roller-coaster which plays K-pop will be called Idol.

    Other major attractions will be derived from scenes from movies including “Mission Impossible,” “Italian Job,” Tomb Raider” and more, with 4D technology, stuntmen’s live performance and racing track experience, Paramount said.

    The US film company said it will revive the Hollywood boulevard at its main gate called Paramount Gate, which will lead to the Paramount Boulevard. Restaurants and cafe streets will offer a Southern California atmosphere.

    Currently under construction, the Inspire Integrated Entertainment Resort in Incheon is aiming for the $1.6 billion-worth first phase opening in 2022.

    We finally have an update on Legoland Shanghai! The park has an updated location, cost and more:



    Merlin Entertainments (“Merlin” or “the Company”), a global leader in location based entertainment with brands including LEGOLAND®, Madame Tussauds and the Dungeons, today announces that it has entered into an agreement with the Shanghai Jinshan District Government, CMC Inc. and KIRKBI to develop a LEGOLAND® Resort in the Jinshan District of Shanghai, China.

    Under the terms of the agreement, all parties will form a joint venture company and contribute funding to the construction and development of LEGOLAND® Shanghai. The total project investment is expected to be approximately £500 million. The schedule for the project is still to be determined, but the project is not expected to open until after 2023.

    LEGOLAND® Shanghai will be one of the largest LEGOLAND® Resorts in the world and will incorporate a 250-room fully themed hotel on opening. It will be located in the Jinshan District in south west Shanghai with a two-hour catchment of 55 million people. The region comprising Shanghai, Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Anhui has an estimated population of 220 million.
    "I’m delighted that we are able to realise the development of a LEGOLAND® Resort in Shanghai; one of the most vibrant cities in the world. A gateway city with modern consumers, Shanghai is already the home for many Merlin brands, and it has been our ambition for some time to build a full-scale theme park that offers the people of Shanghai and visitors to the area the opportunity to immerse themselves in a unique LEGOLAND® experience. I’m honoured therefore to join our partners at this prestigious event and be able to announce this project which is a reflection of the scale opportunity in China and our commitment to developing our business here." - Nick Varney Chief Executive, Merlin Entertainments
    "The establishment of a LEGOLAND® Park in Jinshan not only supports the economic bridge between Shanghai and Zhejiang province, and better contributes to the high-quality integrated development of the Yangtze River Delta region; it also promotes Shanghai as a theme park destination with Disney Resort in the East and LEGOLAND® Resort in the west, supporting the local tourism economy. For Jinshan, it is an important opportunity to further the momentum in our regional development, enhance the area’s attractiveness and competitiveness and facilitate the growth in consumption. It also promotes the "simultaneous development of advanced manufacturing and modern service” and accelerates the pace of economic improvement in Jinshan." - Mr. Hu Wei Guo, Mayor and Party Secretary of Jinshan District, Shanghai

    An excellent on the ground photo of the large Jurassic World-themed mountain being constructed in the middle of the park - interesting to note is that the coaster that intertwines through and around the mountain has yet to complete track installation...



    Here's a view from the peak of the mountain which has topped out - looking down below the mountain straight ahead in the middle is Minions Land and then to the right is the Hollywood area and behind that is NUO Resort Hotel. Straight down of course will be the park's central lagoon.



    Speaking of this Jurassic World-themed mountain, I'd like to share two images I came across from a presentation given by a Universal employee - one of the focuses of the presentation is Volcano Bay so at first glance one may assume these images are just of Krakatau volcano at Volcano Bay in Orlando, but take a closer look at these and during the presentation the employee mentions having worked on Universal Beijing

    A follow up to the recent post by "parkfan" regarding the coaster track on site at Dubai Parks & Resorts:

    According to @methemeparks on Instagram there is Twist and Splash by Mack Rides and a Junior Coaster by Zamperla junior coaster, both of which will likely be heading to Bollywood Parks Dubai. There is also an S&S freespin coaster and a Maurer spinning coaster that may be going to Motiongate Dubai. The rumour is that the S&S freespin will be themed to the movie "Saw"

    According to a potentially credible source in the comments of the Instagram post a total of 12 rides originally destined for Six Flags Dubai will open at the existing parks - 10 of which will go to Bollywood and 2 for Motiongate.









    On a separate but related note, here's early concept art of Bollywood Parks with a never built, decently sized coaster:



    On another separate but related note, the movie "Saw" is distributed by Lionsgate so if that rumor proves to be true, the S&S freespin will be located within the Lionsgate area of Motiongate Dubai.
