Here's the latest satellite imagery for Six Flags Zhejiang:
I see something being built towards the right and I assume it's the "Zhejiang Six Flags International Resort Exhibition Center" (see post from November) but the shape of what's being built looks different than what's shown in the concept images…
Looks very similar to Six flags dubai!!
Six Flags Zhejiang is officially under construction and both the theme park itself and the adjacent waterpark, Six Flags Hurricane Harbor, will open in 2019
Even more details about Six Flags Haiyan:
The exhibition center is expected to open in *June* 2017.
Construction of the actual theme park itself will begin at the end of 2016 (it may have already started as of writing this)

Before Six Flags Haiyan opens in what is now said to be 2019, a "Zhejiang Six Flags International Resort Exhibition Center" is going to open in 2017 at or around the location where the actual theme park will be constructed. The exhibition center will feature, virtual reality, augmented reality and 3D experiences to give visitors the feel of being at a Six Flags theme park. Next to the exhibition center will be a 60-meter-high tower that acts as a sign for the exhibition center. Construction on the exhibition center began on August 1, 2016.

Google Earth was updated in February but only a very small amount of work has been done on clearing the site.
The only real changes I can see are in this area but luckily these images are a lot clearer than they were before.
