    Happy Snow Park and Happy Water Park at Xiangjiang Happy City, developed by Hunan Xiangjiang New Area Investment Group, officially opened on July 11. The structure that makes up both parks, designed by COOP HIMMELB(L)AU, is "positioned directly on top of a historical cement mining quarry pit and lake" in Changsha, China. The large ski resort is inside and the outdoor waterpark is located on top. FORREC designed the waterpark and describes it as follows:

    FORREC took full advantage of the site’s precipitous 30-meter difference in elevation to design a breathtaking multi-level water park with an exotic south seas theme. From the main level, featuring an exciting surf attraction, iconic water coaster and extraordinary wave pool, guests can descend into the Deep Pit on a series of plunging body slides or a thrilling raft slide.

    The pit itself is home to a dizzying selection of raft slides, a leisure pool and promenade. Stunningly integrated onto the roof of an existing building, the family area offers abundant water play options for all ages. Throughout the park, gigantic sculptures, inspired by the cultures of Bali and the South Pacific, act as Water Guardians that welcome and guide guests on their journey of discovery.

    This is what the quarry pit looked like prior to construction:

    The next phase of the Xiangjiang Happy City development is Changsha Haichang Happy Ocean Park, designed by IRMS and KBXD, which recently started construction:

  2. In Ilsan, Korea, there is one particular land parcel that has changed hands multiple times, with several prominent developers making proposals for theme park projects. One such project was a major theme park based on Hallyu / K-pop / Korean Wave culture, and was designed by Legacy Entertainment. Before stalling, the project was so advanced that highway signage was installed (and still exists today).

  4. OCEAN LEGENDS, designed by Legacy Entertainment for Chinese developer Luxin, is an integrated resort concept proposed for the coast of Qingdao. The theme park's program includes several unique attractions themed to different facets of marine live and oceanic exploration anchored by a 'virtual aquarium' blending real marine life displays with multimedia ones.

  5. UNDERLAND is Lotte World's expansion zone below the existing theme park, with the first phase debuting in 2013. Legacy Entertainment's design of the zone included a small-scale dark ride titled 'UNDER CONTROL' that would have taken riders on a madcap journey through the control center beneath Lotte World. Run by the friendly ogres of Korean mythology, the vehicle would have run out of control through all of the departments supporting the park above, including the Central Kitchen, Water & Power, Horticulture, Garbage Collection, and a finale in Fireworks Storage. The ride would have occupied the space currently home to Triotech's XD Theater.

    Futuroscope in France has announced plans for a €304m transformation, with three major new attractions by 2025 followed by two themed hotels and an indoor water park.

    Vienne Department Council has selected the ambitious project submitted by the teams of the Société Anonyme du Parc de Futuroscope (SAPF), a company in which Compagnie des Alpes has a controlling interest and which currently operates the Futuroscope theme park, for the implementation of a new 30-year lease.

    Next to the current theme park, the so-called Futuroscope 2 project integrates two themed hotels and Aquascope, an indoor water park, completing the experience offered by Futuroscope to its guests. Investments totalling €104m will be carried out by a new company, Futur Resort, jointly held by SEM Patrimoniale de la Vienne and Banque des Territoires. SAPF will ensure the delegated project management for this new area and later for its operation under the terms of a new lease, also for 30 years (to 2050).
