    New photos from this morning taken from the north side of the construction site facing south so the areas of the park that are the closest are the Transformers area and Kung Fu Panda area. Cranes right now located at the center of Jurassic World, over by the Minions-themed area and then more cranes in the vicinity of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Hogsmeade. Pile drivers can be seen near the entrance/hotel area and more pile drivers can be seen in the support facilities/back of house area.

    Yesterday at the 2018 IAAPA Attractions Expo in Orlando Dynamic Attractions announced new details about the Sons of Anarchy ride coming to the theme park, which according to the ride manufacturer will be opening in "spring 2019"

    “The Duel Power Coaster the world’s most advanced roller coaster vehicle,” states Hao Wang, President, Dynamic Attractions. “Most coasters are all about the track. That is only half of the excitement in this ride, where the cart itself is powered and moves, creating racing sensations never possible before on a roller coaster.”

    In addition to the 4-DOF motion platform, it has dual propulsion. The combination of On-Board drive and an Off-Board Linear Synchronous Motor drive heightens the experience for guests. “Imagine racing on a track and then suddenly ‘powering-up’ to boost your speed,” adds Wang.

    This week at the 2018 IAAPA Expo in Orlando the WhiteWater booth is displaying a very detailed scale model of the "Maya Extreme" area of the theme park which includes a river rapids ride and a flume ride:









    Though the theme park's construction status is still in standby this project is far from canceled and the plan is for the first part to open in 2021.

    Brand new photo showing the progress of Chimelong Marine Science Museum's steel structure being constructed. In addition to work taking place on the steel structure, the large acrylic glass panels for the main underwater viewing window have begun to arrive from Japan and be hoisted into place. Once the underwater viewing window is complete it will break two Guinness World Records with a total length of 46.2 meters and a height of 8.2 meters (the equivalent of two side by side IMAX screens).

    The fourth Six Flags was just announced - this theme park will be located on a little island called Langqidao, which is near Fuzhou. In addition to the Six Flags park this tourism resort will include something themed to Paramount (likely a hotel like at Six Flags Zhejiang) and a waterpark being built in partnership between Pierre & Vacances-Center Parcs Group and HNA Tourism.

    The good news is great new images of Six Flags Zhejiang and we can see that construction is progressing - the bad news is there's practically no chance that this will be opening in 2019.

    Testing of Steel Dolphin continues... I could be wrong but I think they're still building the exterior of the coaster's load station



    New green turf or matting of some sort is being placed on the roof of the dark ride building and in the distance you can see that the "manta" of the spinning river rapids looks complete



    A few days ago the park's dark ride named "Adventures in the Sea" opened! So far I've only found one on-ride photo from when it goes through an aquarium tank and a photo of the queue







    Some of the outdoor seating at the Sand Castle Restaurant is now open so we get a good look at the other side of the exterior





    Another ride that just opened is the park's kiddie coaster!







    Screens have been added to either side of the whale shark tank's main underwater viewing window



    When mermaid performers go in the tank for shows this area gets extremely crowded







    The main entrance queue for the Cable Car's station at the polar mountain is now open





    Inside the polar mountain there's now a second bear on display



    Central area at the seal and sea lion exhibit



    For an upcharge guests can now feed the sea lions
