    Recently, Chen Dong, Party Secretary and Director of the Municipal Culture and Tourism Bureau, went to our district to investigate the construction of major cultural tourism projects . District Party Secretary Chen Qing participated in the event.

    Chen Dong successively went to Beijing Jinyu Prospect Environmental Protection Technology Co., Ltd. and Qinglonghu Forest Park to inspect the land use and location status of the Lego Theme Park project on site, and listened to our region ’s special tourism development plan, Qinglonghu Town comprehensive implementation plan and Lego theme park project related situation report.




    In addition to the construction of Legoland, Qinglong Lake District has also built a series of high-end business, leisure and living facilities: the five-star Oriental MGM International Hotel has been built and put into use, the Merlin Entertainment Group, Australia Weixiu, France PVCP , New Zealand Vita Studios, Holland Life Apartments and other international industry giants have joined in

    Google Earth doesn't show any work on the site as far as I can see. Some construction work around the site has been ongoing since around late 2018 but I don't believe that's linked to LEGOLAND.

    View from March 2019 as it's a clearer image.



    View from September 2019, less clear but not many changes.

    This is the site on Google Earth as of 16th May 2019, if you go back through the history of the site the only construction is the apartment blocks in the left hand corner of the site. Everything else is the same as it was in 2018 and even further back than that there are not many changes to that site at all.

    Two options:

    1. That site was never the right site anyway. We don't have any other potential site ever mentioned in concept art or press releases so this seems unlikely. There did seem to be some movement at times but nothing ever came of them so it seems unlikely they are building somewhere else and we have missed it.

    2. This project never got off the ground. This is much more likely.

    Would be interested to see if anyone has any other information on what became of this project but I think it's completely forgotten.

    The most up to date mention on the theme parks I can find is from April 2019. Does anyone know if these are still going ahead or if they are now being removed from the projects?

    The total investment in Lagoona District, the latest integrated leisure and entertainment component of King Abdullah Economic City (KAEC), is expected to reach SAR 18.5 billion ($5 billion), a senior company executive told Argaam.

    The 8-million square metre district will have 18 attractions, including two theme parks, a motor park and over 2,100 hotel rooms.

    Lagoona Motorpark, a component of the first phase of the district, will open in September this year, Mohammed S Ballout, senior director and head of Leisure and Retail Operations, KAEC, said in an interview on the sidelines of the "Theme parks and Entertainment Development Forum Middle East" in Dubai on Tuesday.
    This is the motorpark which was meant to open in September 2019 but I can't find that this opened either.

    Another China park restarts construction after Coronavirus delays.



    Work has restarted on the Nickelodeon theme park, with developers given the green light to start work again on the US$750m (£647m, €688m) Mall of China development.
    The 92,000sq ft (8,500sq m) park will feature 14 Nickelodeon IPs including Dora the Explorer, Sponge Bob Square Pants, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Paw Patrol, and will feature 29 attractions, including Asia's first tilting drop tower attraction and an indoor coaster. Themed around the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the ride will break four world records for indoor coasters, including highest drop, most inversions, longest track and fastest maximum speed.

    The park was originally slated for a December 2020 opening, however, will most likely be delayed due to the disruption in construction.

    It is believed that the permanent home of the Raptor Encounter is being built next to Pizza Predattoria. Seems to be a freshly poured oval of concrete in the site. Aerial photos Mar 16.

    Local unrest continues to cause minor problems for LEGOLAND as residents try to block them on seemingly trivial elements of the project.

    The company is seeking the name change to create another landmark to help guests find the $500 million future theme park, due July 4, Legoland Community Relations Coordinator Hayley Coriaty told municipal leaders in a January 9 email.

    Plus, Legoland Boulevard would 'serve as a concise location for emergency services to quickly and efficiently locate any affected parties,' wrote Coriaty, adding that Legoalnd's California and Florida properties have Legoland in their roads' names.


    The proposal has angered residents, with some upset at what they call corporate insensitivity to a storied family with deep regional roots and a long list of local contributions.

    Legoland New York will be the largest of the eight Legoland in the world when it opens in July about 60 miles north of New York City.

    The Goshen Town Board is scheduled to vote on whether to symbolically endorse the name change at its Jan. 23 meeting, after tabling a measure that Supervisor Doug Bloomfield proposed on Jan. 9.

    Tron Construction at Magic Kingdom begins to show signs of the canopy underway.

    The enormous construction site stretches from Space Mountain all the way to Goofy's Barnstormer, so it's hard to miss. This is a coaster that will travel in and out of a large show building. It will also make a large circle outside the show building under a large open-air illuminated canopy. Today, we noticed some of the first structural signs of that canopy.




    The large, rust-colored pillars will serve as supports for the large undulated roof of TRON Lightcycle Run while it's being constructed. Once finalized, we'll see these come back down to reveal a clear, futuristic facade.

    The big project now that Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge has been completed and is humming along is Marvel Land aka Avengers Campus. The buildings are coming together. The Spiderman show building is most complete, and the rest of the land still has a fair amount of exterior work to go. The land opens late spring/early summer, so the crews still have a lot of work ahead of them!

    LEGOLAND Korea continues to court controversy with its damage to the ancient ruins being highlighted again in February. The last time this happened the site was closed down for a period of time and caused delays.

    Since the visit to the site on January 31st Jungdo Headquarters discovered that the pond was formed due to water from the lake flowing to the site where the construction company had excavated to carry out LEGOLAND waterway construction. Even though the damage was reported construction has continued to the full 500m of waterway and as yet no charges have been brought.

    Exploring Moscow's new theme park Dream Island on its opening day as a guest for the media event, I got to know a couple of Russian words pretty well: Скоро открытие.

    Translated, it means "opening soon." The Intamin launched coaster that bursts out of the walls of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles themed New York section? Скоро открытие. Dinosaur-themed flying theatre? Скоро открытие. Hotel Transylvania ride housed in a massive, imposing show building? Скоро открытие. Snow Queen 3D show in the park's centrepiece frozen castle? Yep, you guessed it.


    But while Dream Island might lack the nuance or imaginative detail of a Disney or Universal, it's a clear step above many of the knock-off parks we've seen in the emerging Asian markets.

    And crucially, this is a significant theme park for a market that currently didn't have one. A market where, for most people who are likely to visit, a "Disneyland" isn't a specific property owned by one company, but a catch-all term for the kind of designed space they've seen the world over but had little chance to experience themselves. A disneyland, rather than a Disneyland, if you will.
