    The Ain Dubai looks like it's not going to complete any time soon. almost 3 months after the full wheel being completed there are still no pods and no work took place in the 5 days we were there. There is a lot of construction work at the entrance to the island but the wheel is far from complete and still being billed to open this year.

    View of WB from Yas Beach. The building is very imposing and has much more impact than neighboring Ferrari World.

    I’m at the Atlantis hotel in Sanya apparently seven stars but the rooms are average at best, on the other hand the lobby has this mesmerising beast.

    Former Disney Executive has joined the team and lots of PR coming out this month makes this look like it's finally moving in the right direction.

    "Our goal is to create an exciting one-of-a-kind destination that will draw visitors from throughout Saudi Arabia to experience record-breaking roller coasters, innovative rides and attractions, as well as the sporting and cultural facilities that Qiddiya will offer. By partnering with a global leader, we know that we are going to deliver something exceptional," Qiddiya Chief Executive Michael Reininger said in a statement.

    If that names sounds familiar to readers in Central Florida, that's because Reininger is the former Disney executive who went on to head the development of the Brightline train project. At Disney, Reininger was involved with the development of the Disney Cruise Line, Disney Vacation Club and several moderate-level Disney World hotels, as well as the abandoned Disney's America project.

    More general construction news from the overall project.

    1. The re-routing of the rivers and the creation of a new riverside park will act as a tourist zone around the theme park as well as providing the water features inside the park. The red dotted area is Universal Studios as far as I can make out from the map and descriptions.

    The landscape improvement project is expected to reach the completion acceptance condition in September, which will not only increase Xiaohe River's flood control standards, provide flood protection security for Universal Studios, but also provide a new landscape for the public to enjoy water and leisure.
    After planning and designing, this river channel will serve as the landscape water body within Universal Studios

    2. There has been some backlash from the villagers who were relocated from the area in 2013 and are yet to have their new houses completed. These relocated villages will sit around the perimeter of the new park. Those villages were meant to be completed by 2015 and whilst some have been, many are still living in temporary accomocation.

    At present, the land required for the Universal Studios theme park project has been demolished and retired. The surrounding area has been enclosed by a wall. A part of the land is under construction and most of the land is covered with green gauze.
    According to the official from Liyuan Town mentioned above, Sunzhuang Village in Liyuan Town also adopted a village collective self-built resettlement housing. “It was also built and was stopped. In this (Universal Studios Theme Park) project, our town should be based on these two villages. It seems that Zhangjiawan Town also has a village villager who has not moved back and resettled, and most of them have completed resettlement by the end of 2015."

    It looks like the land that was sold to fund some of the building works has now been removed from sale to preserve the historic ruins and this means funds for this project have been removed. However, it looks like if Merlin pulls out at this stage they leave the project in a lot of debt and the city that has built up around the potential resort will become valueless causing a lot of issues for those who invested in LEGOLAND in order to gain preferential treatment for their own local projects.

    When LEGO Land is lost, the loss should reach about KRW 1.29 trillion (as of last month) and the return of KRW 45 billion should be returned to the bridge.
    As a result, local communities are suggesting that Gangwon Province should provide additional guarantees or direct investments as a last resort.
    Still no movement on any type of construction, I think for now this project is dead.

    Another new press release went out this week it looks like but with very little information on it that we haven't heard before.

    Humphrey Percy, group CEO of the project's parent company Kuwaiti European Holdings, said he is confident that plans will be approved and affordable.

    "We have the financial backing to take us all the way through that process," he added.

    The company is due to make an application for planning permission this year. If the Government approves the plans, the park could open in 2023.
    London Resort Company Holdings (LRCH), the group behind the theme park, has brought in a group of senior staff to push forward with the project.

    A new partner, Intercontinental Hotel Group, has been brought on board to operate the more than 3,500 hotel rooms on the site.
