    It should be noted that Europa-Park is already planning on an upcoming expansion of its Rulantica water park (see below). The plan includes the seventh thematic hotel on the site, an expanded indoor and outdoor area for the water park, and a monorail linking Europa-Park to Rulantica .


    Michael Kreft von Byern , President and CEO of Europa-Park, has been appointed Director of Rulantica , the new water park on the site, with immediate effect.

    Already during the planning phase, Michael Kreft von Byern played a decisive role in the development. In addition, he has analyzed numerous water parks around the world and advised the Mack family , owner, on important decisions. Many ideas bear his signature.

    Michael Kreft von Byern has held various management positions for Europa-Park for more than 30 years. In 1988, he started as a press attaché, became spokesperson, marketing director, park manager, head of design & development at Europa-Park , Mack Solutions .

    Interesting plan for Zhengzhou Haichang Ocean Park in China showing some coasters. Oddly one ride appears to be a modified Batman: The Ride. Although how final this plan is is not currently known.

    I can't find the source of the information on this appointment but seems they are bringing more people on board the project.

    [email protected] Company Holdings have this week appointed a new director, Alan Crane, in the role of ‘Construction Consultant’. Perhaps of most interest amongst his experience in the construction industry is his involvement in Euro Disney, the original name of @DisneylandParis.

    As expected it looks like the new coaster will be motorbike and sidecar. Coaster cars are now in place.



    Check out this pic of the Potter Coaster train to get a better idea of the motorbike seats on left, sidecar on right. They’re facing forward (down in photo). The tallest parts at back of cars are the seat backs and headrests. Pic by @bioreconstruct

    New patents filed for Universal, no indication of specific parks as yet.



    A Jurassic World Gyrosphere Ride?
    Let’s start with the obvious. Franchise producer Frank Marshall has mentioned in the past that Universal has wanted to make a ride based on the gyrosphere vehicles seen in Jurassic World and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. And here you go: a ride design that looks to place the rider within a spherical vehicle with a striking resemblance to what’s seen on the screen. The technical jargon describes a ride that would provide all the physical thrills of being bounced around in a giant glass ball by angry dinosaurs:

    Movement of the passenger support system, and thus, the passenger, within the annular structure, causes the sensation of airflow around the passenger’s body (e.g., arms and legs) and may allow the passenger a heightened amusement ride experience. Additionally, relatively minor movement of the passenger support system may create additional forces on the rider’s body due, in part, to the distribution of gravitational forces. The combination of physical effects such as airflow and g-forces, along with visual effects such as a visual effect device, screen, or facade may provide the passenger with an immersive amusement ride experience.


    A Zelda Horse-Riding Attraction?
    The second patent isn’t quite as specific, and it’s built to simulate the experience of riding a motorcycle or a horse. Here’s more:

    By positioning the rider in a facedown position or on a vehicle that, at least in some orientations, permits a downward gaze, the rider may experience a sensation and feeling of horseback riding, motorcycling, or the like. Additionally, the disclosed rider support assembly may allow the rider to experience sudden moments of positive and negative gravitational forces (e.g., g-forces) that enhance the sensation of riding or motorcycling, and provide a more pleasurable riding experience.

    So, what ride could we be looking at here? With Universal bringing Super Nintendo World to its parks in the next few years, I can’t help but wonder if this will be themed to The Legend of Zelda, the iconic video game franchise about exploring a dangerous fantasy world, often on the back of your trusty steed. It’s still not clear where Super Nintendo World will open in Universal Orlando (if maybe that fourth unnamed park), but there have been additional rumors that Zelda will be spun off into its own land entirely, away from the Mario-centric core world (which will host a ride based around Mario Kart).

    The real #ostrovmečty with mysterious worlds and interesting interactive rides are waiting for you next fall. And now, the cladding of the entrance group of the park, which looks like the watchtower of the fairy castle. Already Built 30-metre monolithic grounds, with steelwork, they are brought to a 75-metre height comparable to the height of a 25-Storey House.
    This maximum height is due to the construction restrictions associated with the nearby UNESCO World Heritage sites - the complex of the museum-reserve "kolomenskoye".

    Also, new permits show the layout of the hotel and seem to indicate there will be shuttle buses rather than a walk through from the hotel to the park.



    According to the permits, rooms come in two sizes: a regular sized cabin and the larger first class cabin. The first floor has 32 regular cabins and two first class cabins. If the second floor has the same layout, the Star Wars hotel could have as little as 68 total rooms.
