    I found some additional artwork for the park and info on expected rides and attractions but nothing recent about construction - does anyone know if construction is still ongoing? I fear this park may no longer be going ahead...

    This will be the area with the most extreme equipment in the park, will contain a Vekoma roller coaster with inversions, which will be 35.5 meters high and reach a speed of 100 km / h during its launch. We will also have a Mack Rides Water Coaster and a Huss top spin in the best Phantasialand style in Germany, but adapted to the Amikoo theme.


    The main attraction will be a state-of-the-art dark ride, which uses the technology seen in the Harry Potter Forbidden Journey attraction in Orlando. Visitors sit in large arms, with capacity for 4 people, who move through trails and place in front of several screens and interactive elements.

    According to this interview with Jora Vision from April 2020 the park is still being worked on but no news on construction that I can find.





    Another example is the development of the ride concept called ‘The curse of Blackstorm Bay’. In this case Jora Vision had the idea to work on the concept of the immersive tunnel and approached Simworx as partner to develop a next generation immersive tunnel. Simeon explains that this ride is rather different from existing immersive tunnels. “We wanted to have an immersive tunnel in pirate theme, with vehicles shaped like a ship rather than a truck. And we wanted a real scene in the loading station. When you board the vehicle, you see a scene on your left with projections which creates more depth. After the scene, the gates open and you enter the tunnel where the ship is actually surrounded by a water basin. And when you return to the station, there is also a final scene where characters from the ride show up once again.”

    “For this ride we also had a generic pirate theme when we presented the ride concept,” Simeon says. “When the concept was sold to a customer in Mexico, he wanted a more specific storyline which was based upon the local pirate’s tales. We used the existing fortress in the Mexican town of Bacalar as inspiration for developing a storyline for the entire ride.” The ride is completely designed and was sold to the Amikoo Theme Park, which is still in development.

    The construction stage is approaching as recently the theme park obtained all permits from the government and are in full compliance with environmental requirements. According to the developers, "forest recovery has been carried out successfully and in compliance with the Mexican government regulations."

    This week at the 2018 IAAPA Expo in Orlando the WhiteWater booth is displaying a very detailed scale model of the "Maya Extreme" area of the theme park which includes a river rapids ride and a flume ride:









    Though the theme park's construction status is still in standby this project is far from canceled and the plan is for the first part to open in 2021.

    The status of this park is currently on "standby" and construction has yet to begin. The head of the theme park's company, Alejandro Zozaya Gorostiza, says that they are working with investors to raise funds and that filming for two of the rides' films is ongoing. The theme park will open in 2021.

    Huss Park Attractions has announced that the first project of its Explorer film based attraction will open at Cancun’s Riviera Maya in Mexico in 2019 at the new Amikoo Resort Destination Theme Park, currently being developed and scheduled to open next year.

    The Amikoo attraction will take visitors on a deep sea exploration around the seas of Mexico to discover the varied sea life.

    The Explorer provides the sensation of being immersed under the ocean by utilising cutting-edge technology, unrestricted views towards a 360° screen supporting large-format images, suitable sound effects, scents which pervade the ambience and the descending/ascending movement of the rider carrier.

    A themed boarding area will initially engage visitors in the adventure. Guests will enter the 70-seat gondola, themed as a submarine, from a docking bay before it sinks into the deep abyss. The Amikoo Explorer also offers a mix of entertainment and education, featuring messages to raise awareness about the care of the planet and an emphasis on the oceans and bio-diversity.
