    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.

    I can't embed the video from this report but it's worth a watch on the link below. The suggestion of the reporter is that they are building up the plans in order to increase the resale value of the land they purchased and have no intention of delivering the park.

    There is still no work on the site and they are still pushing the "open by 2024" messaging. It's not feasible in my opinion for this project to be delivered.



    London Resort Holdings has issued artists impressions, bought up land and formed partnerships with Paramount, ITV and the BBC. But a planning application has not been submitted and no work has been carried out on the 800-acre site.

    Gulliver's Valley are opening a new theme park in Yorkshire, England in June 2020.





    New details of a 37m theme park just an hour from Hull have been released. Yorkshire attraction Gulliver's Valley Resort will open in spring, featuring rides and attractions aimed at kids between two and 13.
    The Lost World zone will have a water chute-style T-Rex Tower and River Tour, Smuggler's Wharf boasts a Ghostly Galleon pirate ship style ride and there's a carousel in Lilliput Land.
    Toyland will have a Ferris wheel and fire trucks and Western World has a thrilling sounding Apache Falls and Desperado Drop.
