    We've got the location of the resort as a whole now thanks to these government documents: http://www.qyup.gov.cn/qysghj/fags/201611/e6e7e08d09d045d1a9d9c471d8be4d61.shtml



    ^The star indicates the animal holding facility that is already actively holding animals (such as elephants) that will eventually be at the theme park



    ^All areas within the grey dashed lines are considered part of the resort, not necessarily the theme park itself

    I'm still researching where the theme park area of the resort is specifically…

    Chimelong Qingyuan Forest Resort will have a large observation wheel that will be located atop a hill.

    Chimelong Qingyuan Forest Resort will include a waterpark. Based on translations, the waterpark will feature a "several hundred meter" long slide that goes through the forest, an infinity wave pool, and a large lazy river/river rapid type ride, and some kind of "water show."

    I'm getting closer to pinpointing the exact location of this theme park! Twenty four elephants have been imported from Africa to a temporary facility in Qingyuan (the same city in which the theme park is to be located). The photo displayed below shows some of the elephants at this Qingyuan facility.




    From the photo I was able to locate the elephant facility on Google Maps: https://goo.gl/maps/MKAJuWFEHjG2




    Now looking north west on Google Maps I see nearby what I BELIEVE to be the location of the actual theme park mainly because of the significant amount of land clearing (and it fits the location described by Chimelong as to where the theme park would be located). Notice the location of that to compared to the newly located elephant facility. Coincidence? I think not…

    That looks very promising. I looked along the river but perhaps this artwork is just a fantasy and the park will actually be surrounded by land rather than water?

    This might be the location of this theme park. It matches what CarlySX was talking about and I'm seeing a lot of land clearing…

    I have not yet been able to identify a distinct location but this is a very approximate location based on the description given in their press release.
    I am going to try and find a better location but it's a huge area so anyone who can scout around the yellow pin in google maps is welcome to find it first.

    With the Chimelong Qingyuan project, the Chimelong Group will eventually create a super tourism destination corridor that traverses the best tourism resources of the Pearl River Delta region. Viewed from the map, Qingyuan Chimelong Forest Resort is located in the northern edge of the Guangzhou metropolitan area and is vertically aligned with Guangzhou Chimelong Tourist Resort and Zhuhai Hengqin Chimelong International Ocean Tourist Resort located in the south. Connected seamlessly by highways, city transit system as well as high-speed rail system, any two resorts are separated by merely an hour’s travelling time.

  8. Anyone can point to the concrete location? Any construction photos?

    This region will be divided into 3 parts for showing different views and features, including forest, lake and plain. And the forest theme park will breed more than 100 species of animals. In addition, a new roller coaster with the latest concept and technology will be included.
