    (1/16/14) While very little is known so far about the attractions that will be offered inside the IMG Worlds of Adventure park, one of them has been discovered on the Dynamic Attractions portfolio of projects list called the Circumotion.

    The site describes it as a, “circular theatre with seats mounted on a massive motion base is patented by Falcon’s Tree House, and is in the final phase of fabrication, ready for installation in the UAE in 2014.”

    (1/16/14) Back in November it was announced at IAAPA that Great Coasters International would build “The Viper”, their biggest wooded roller coaster ever at the Wanda (Nanchang) Culture Tourism City to open in 2015. (Stats: 50 meter (164 ft) tall lift hill and 1,500 meters (4921 ft) of track).

    Earlier this month it was reported that the Wanda Group had purchased a new B&M Flyer Coaster for Xishuangbanna International Resort project.

    Today I found an interesting bit of news on the Dynamic Attractions website that confirms that they are now in the midsts of building Dynamic’s very first “Generation II Flying Theaters” attraction for Wanda as well.

    (1/17/14) A reader sent in a couple of new pictures from Universal Hollywood taken this week, showing off the huge Wizarding World construction site, where the Mummy tunnel used to be, as well as the site clearing for the new parking structure on the way. I’m told that the construction crews seem to be working long hours as well, starting as early as 7am and working on until the early evening with their lights.
