    New aerial photos that mainly show the maglev line that will have a station at the resort but especially in the first photo you can also see where the hotels and waterpark will be.

    A news article came out today talking about the status of Chimelong Qingyuan

    According to the article local residents are excited for the upcoming theme park but progress is slow.

    At the main gate of Qingyuan Chimelong, the wide Chimelong Avenue has been completed. The green hills belonging to Qingyuan Chimelong are endless. A few workers are working on the roadside. The maglev train in the distance has not been completed, and no workers are seen. It’s hard to find traces of the Chimelong Station.
    Chimelong declined to comment on the article.

    A few workers seen near the site:



    Chimelong Avenue, which runs along the edge of what will be the park:

    There's a lot of information in this article as it's mainly about high housing prices in areas where promises are being made about improved infrastructure before those improvements are made but it also has info about the proposed park. Looks like this article was posted 8th June but I may be wrong as the translation isn't great...

    The current situation of Qingyuan Chimelong site photographed by netizens


    It is reported that the slow construction of Qingyuan Chimelong is closely related to the slow construction of Qingyuan Transportation. Qingyuan originally planned to have a maglev tour line. The line has Chimelong Theme Park Station, which is connected to Yinqing Station of Guangqing City Rail. However, as with the construction of the Guangqing City Rail, the construction cycle of this maglev line has been postponed repeatedly. The dedicated line, which was originally scheduled to open to traffic at the end of 2019, has not yet been clearly opened.

    Chimelong's park in Qingyuan is still in development slowly but surely - on April 21 government officials met with Chimelong's founder, Su Zhigang, at what I believe to be a little preview center for the park at the temporary animal holding center. The government committee that was involved in the meeting committed "to ensure the orderly progress of the construction of the Qingyuan Chimelong project."

    Construction on the park is basically nonexistent right now and the Qingyuan Maglev rapid transit line that will have a station at the park has been significantly delayed with some parts of the system having been suspended. In a recent article reporting about the lack of progress the Qingyuan government and Chimelong Group were contacted for comment and no response was given...

    This project is not completely dead but Chimelong is allocating most if not all of their resources right now to completing Chimelong Marine Science Park in Zhuhai, which is also opening much later than originally intended.

    On January 15 Qingyuan government officials met with Su Zhigang, the founder of Chimelong Group, to discuss the progress of the resort which they hope will open "as soon as possible." The park's planning and construction has been accelerated and the plan is now for the first phase to open in 2021 (originally the park was supposed to open this year).

    Recently released concept art for the park's entrance and hotel area:

    The current work of Qingyuan Chimelong is progressing in an orderly manner.
    Some of the infrastructure construction around the Qingyuan Chimelong project was not perfect, which was the main reason for the slowdown in construction progress.

    It is said that the project has slowed down. Also, there is a rumor that GGE has been removed from the project. I was looking forward to this project. It was supposed to be another big piece of work from GGE. But I heard that GGE is working on another theme park project in China, the Evergrande Fairytale world.

    New high resolution layout of Chimelong Qingyuan Forest Resort

    A few attractions can clearly be identified in the layout including a 5D theater, a kiddie roller coaster, a central body of water for shows, a tiger-themed river rapids (fun fact: originally Disney's Animal Kingdom's river rapids was going to be tiger-themed), and a hippopotamus-themed log flume/splashdown-type ride. I am not able to spot the previously announced signature giraffe castle, world's largest aviary, and hilltop observation wheel. Can anyone spot any of those?



    As of March 2018, land has been completely cleared for the four resorts that can be seen in the top right of the layout. The two resorts located along the animals exhibits are currently under construction. Little to no land clearing has taken place so far for the theme park itself.

    Note the waterpark layout pictured below and in the top right of the main layout. I spot about 10 waterslides, a large lazy river, two wave pools, and an aqua coaster.
