    These photos were taken on the same day/night. You can see the launch equipment has been installed between the two images.





    We know exactly what was lifted and placed yesterday! It will power the JP coaster launch. There's similar shape structures with electrical equipment near launches in Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure.

    On the morning of May 8, the sky of Xiangyang was blue. The workers walked along the pedestrian walkway constructed with bamboo and wood, and slowly climbed to the top of the rockery hill of Qimeng Beach Water Park in Xiangyang Overseas Chinese Town Cultural Tourism Resort, and began to remove the scaffolding from top to bottom.

    "The entire resort is composed of the three immersive theme parks of Qimon Beach, Fantasy Valley, and Qiqu Childhood and the wonderful town of the resort business town. Qimeng Beach Water Park is a phase one project that will open on June 24 and is now Entering the final stage. Since the resumption of work, we have shifted 3 shifts a day, working 24 hours a day. "Yu Tao, Director of Marketing Department, Xiangyang Overseas Chinese Town.

    Amusement Today have released their May issue. The "what's new for 2020" section is interesting. We cover most of them but many are single rides or shows that we don't cover. Worth a read....

    Atlantis are still listing Ko Olina as "Coming Soon" on their website however given that we have seen zero movement on this in over 4 years, apart from clearing the land of the chapel, does anyone know anything about the intended timeline for Ko Olina?

    I spoke with the Dubai team over 18 months ago and they were working on feasibility, finances etc and were under the impression it was going ahead still but I don't have those contacts anymore.

    Any news with sources (or unofficial news) appreciated.

    I tend to agree, it seems unlikely to open given the delays and other events. Do you know this for a fact and can quote a source or is it just a feeling?

    It seems that Dream Island are unhappy that they are being slandered in the media for "unpaid bills" - this statement seems to indicate they believe they are being blackmailed by companies they have paid in return for not getting negative press. It all seems very odd.

    HC "Island of Dreams" states that information about the lack of payments to contractors for the construction of the park, distributed in the media and social networks, is false. Dreams Island fulfilled all obligations for payments to general contractors on time according to concluded agreements with counterparties. Therefore, videos with subcontractor organizations' appeals distributed in telegram channels should not be addressed to the “Island of Dreams”, but to the management of the companies in whose staff these employees are registered.

    Any unfounded accusations against the company “Island of Dreams” that are not supported by any supporting documents are groundless attempts by competitors to discredit the company in a public field.
    Boris Pishchik, General Director of the Dream Island theme park: "Since the opening of the park, we have been witnessing the spread of knowingly false information about the project in order to undermine the company's reputation. We have to deal with a lot of negative comments addressed to us, which are not only untrue, but often are third-party orders.
    It sounds like perhaps some of the contractors were not paid by the companies they worked for but are blaming Dream Island for none payment rather than their employers. Perhaps someone who reads Russian could translate better than google?

    The river running through the resort resumed construction in late March and will allow guests to travel from the resort hotels into the theme park and around the resort.

    Construction of a river through Universal Beijing Resort, a major theme park scheduled to open in May next year, will be completed in November, according to the municipal government on Thursday.

    The 2.8-kilometer-long waterway will wind like a ribbon through the resort area in the cultural and tourist zone in Beijing's subcenter, starting from Jiukeshu Middle Road to the west side of East 6th Ring Road.
    At present, the river structure has been completed, and other work is underway, including river bank greening, river bottom seepage reduction and the construction of a water treatment station. The project, when completed, will feature landscapes of 40 to 100 meters wide and a water area of about 120,000 square meters for the resort.

    Hey Les20

    Are these old documents or is there new news on this park development? I can't find anything since 2019?

    Thanks!

    There is no specific date change for opening as yet but it's been announced that construction has been delayed by at least 1 year due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

    “We remain very confident that the parks business will generate healthy returns over the long term,” said Brian Roberts, chairman and CEO of Universal’s parent company, Comcast, on its first quarter earnings call Thursday. “Nonetheless, we’ve decided to pause construction of Orlando’s fourth gate, Epic Universe, at this early stage.”
    The project was confirmed last year and scheduled for a 2023 opening. While Roberts didn’t mention a specific delay, Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings said construction on Epic Universe “is going to be delayed by a year,” though it’s not clear if that means the opening date will need to be pushed back.

    Edit: It looks like the photos in this post were from another site, LEGOLAND Japan, but were marked as LEGOLAND New York images on the article so have been removed.

    Original Message:

    Found these images and the captions say "artists impression" but it looks like an actual photo to me.

    Given that the site was meant to open in July 2020 I would think we would have seen a lot more from construction by now. I am not sure the site would have been ready for July even without Coronavirus without some serious work in the last months. I am not seeing the amount of work I would expect for the last 6 months of a park getting ready to open.

    Anyone else find any photos that make the park look anything like ready?

    According to this interview with Jora Vision from April 2020 the park is still being worked on but no news on construction that I can find.





    Another example is the development of the ride concept called ‘The curse of Blackstorm Bay’. In this case Jora Vision had the idea to work on the concept of the immersive tunnel and approached Simworx as partner to develop a next generation immersive tunnel. Simeon explains that this ride is rather different from existing immersive tunnels. “We wanted to have an immersive tunnel in pirate theme, with vehicles shaped like a ship rather than a truck. And we wanted a real scene in the loading station. When you board the vehicle, you see a scene on your left with projections which creates more depth. After the scene, the gates open and you enter the tunnel where the ship is actually surrounded by a water basin. And when you return to the station, there is also a final scene where characters from the ride show up once again.”

    “For this ride we also had a generic pirate theme when we presented the ride concept,” Simeon says. “When the concept was sold to a customer in Mexico, he wanted a more specific storyline which was based upon the local pirate’s tales. We used the existing fortress in the Mexican town of Bacalar as inspiration for developing a storyline for the entire ride.” The ride is completely designed and was sold to the Amikoo Theme Park, which is still in development.

    Shinsegae Property Consortium has been picked as a preferred bidder to operate a theme park complex on 3.15 square kilometers of land in Hwaseong, Gyeonggi Province, the company said Thursday.
    The construction for Hwaseong International Theme Park has been stalled twice since 2007. In 2016, the landowner K-Water failed to sign a contract with a consortium to build a Korean version of Universal Studios due to lack of funds.


    The latest consortium consists of Shinsegae Property, which operates Starfield, and Shinsegae Construction. It will put 4.57 trillion won ($4 billion) to construct a tourism complex which includes a theme park, leisure and commercial facilities including a hotel, shopping mall and golf course.

    The company said it plans to break ground in 2021 to open theme park facilities in 2026 and complete the construction by 2031.

    According to the group, the complex will have an unprecedented concept, themed on K-pop and regional features such as the Shihwa Lake and dinosaur fossil site.

    Xuzhou Amusement Land is part of the overall Xuzhou Paradise Resort in China which was due to open in March 2020 but is delayed.

    An update from Xuzhou Paradise where test openings have begun. The park features a custom mine train along with an SLC and spinning coaster from Golden Horse. The star of the show though will be the Mack built Blue Fire clone.

    @wesh2 flew over the parks today for a LIVE view of what was going. Here are a few screenshots from the video.

    Check out all of the new vertical construction for the Jurassic rollercoaster project! Looks like the pieces we saw before are up! We expect to see a lot more progress on the site over the next few weeks and hopefully WESH2 will be able to showcase again!
