    There is a new park in project for Spain, Puy du Fou Toledo, close to Toledo, the Imperial Capital of Spain before Madrid.

    The park will be constructed in a terrain of 159 hectares.

    The 1 phase of the park will be open this summer, a Cinescenie like show with the history of Spain as main focus.

    In 2021 will open the park with 4 shows (2 indoor theatre, 1 walk-through and 1 outdoor theatre) and 1 historic village.

    In 2023 will open a new outdoor show.

    In 2025 will open a new outdoor show (Ancient Rome).

    And finally, in 2028 will open a new indoor show.

    The total cost of the project (2019-2028) is 197 millions of euros. The park is promoted by Puy du Fou International (the company behind Puy du Fou France), and hope to attire 1.24 millions of visitors in 2021 and more than 1.7 Millon's of visitors from 2024.

    The work started last week and tomorrow will be the official start of the construction:

    Lionsgate Entertainment World Zhuhai, China to open in 2019

  5. A construction update from Phase 2 of Oriental Neverland in Shaoxing, China. The site already has an indoor park with a Mack spinning coaster that opened in 2016.

  6. Mirabilandia Park to be built in the northeastern region of Brazil

    Where: the park will be built on BR-101 Norte, in the region of Mata do Ronca in the city of Paulista, state of Pernambuco, Brazil. Metropolitan region of the state capital, city of Recife.

    It will be invested 50 million reais (Brazilian reais) in the construction of the new park and new attractions. 1.500.000m².

    The management of Mirabilandia Parque has a high commitment to the protection and recovery of the remaining forest where it will be installed. The area will have 100 hectares transformed into Unity and Conservation (UC), recovery of the forest that surrounds the new Mirabilandia and, before the posture responsible and committed to the environment, will have implemented a system of environmental management processes in the enterprise. This system, the Environmental Management System (EMS), will be based on the ISO 14001 standard of the Brazilian Association of Technical Standards (ABNT) and the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), developed by the United States Green Building Council ).

    The environmental education program is robust, with a focus on sensitization to society (community, public power, society and academic institutions) and establishment of partnerships to strengthen sustainable actions. The development will be embracing the forest as its installation is at the center of a "hug" of the forest, which surrounds the Park, becoming the forest itself a reference of the enterprise. The maintenance and conservation of the vegetation are considered of interest not only environmental, but also commercial oriented towards the landscape appreciation.

    Believing that environmental awareness plays a definitive role in the construction of citizenship, the new park will have thematic areas of the Atlantic Forest, attractions such as tree climbing, climbing wall, zip line and lots of direct contact with nature. These elements form the concept of ecopark that will be implemented.

    The park will have all of the park's current attractions in operation. Current park: Av. Prof. Andrade Bezerra, 1285 - Salgadinho, Olinda - PE. That included two roller coasters, one being with two loopings and the other familiar. And in the new park, there will be 3 more new roller coasters, one with 8 inversions, 1 child and 1 family. The old Deja Vu, Giant Inverted Boomerang (GIB) model is in storage in the park however, but it is being negotiated for sale and assembly in the Hopi Hari Park near São Paulo, also in Brazil.

    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).

    Here is an update video of riders on Infinity Falls and how they change operations for the winter months. They have turned off the water curtain, all the waterfalls and the geysers to make the ride less wet for cooler days.
