    Today soft openings have begun at Phantasialand for F.L.Y., Vekoma’s first flying launched coaster and probably the most highly anticipated roller coaster of 2020.

    New photos and details have been released by Jingang Technology, a Chinese ride manufacturer, for their new robotic arm dark ride named 'Crazy Journey' at Suzhou Paradise Forest World in China. Similarly to the Dynamic Attractions/KUKA robotic arm dark ride, this ride is also on a track with four seats across per vehicle and the ride scenes are a mix of dome screens and physical sets. It's unclear if the ride is open or about to open.



    Entrance to the ride building:



    Theming in the ride's queue:



    The premise of the ride is the following: "travel through the mysterious underground world, encounter beautiful alien scenes, encounter terrifying mutant creatures, and witness the culture and the unique charm of harmony between technology and ecology."

    The famous Spanish leisure complex PortAventura World aims to build a fourth park, dedicated to football, next to the three already existing ( PortAventura , Costa Caribe Aquatic Park and Ferrari Land ).
    The first phase, with a budget of 10 million euros, will include a virtual game which will be offered from the next football season 2021-2022. But also a digital center, a restaurant and a shop offering LaLiga products .

    The second phase of the project consists of a themed attraction of LaLiga . The budget is 40 million euros, which is already considerable for an attraction.

    Still in development at the time of writing, the third phase, much more ambitious, is the culmination of the creation of the park, with substantial infrastructure. The investment for this last phase is an additional 100 million euros.

    Interesting video of the B&M factory and their current coasters being manufactured. Lots of parts for coasters being manufactured for parks covered on various threads.

    A possible LEGOLAND in Belgium?

    This is the huge news of the day, which will delight Belgian park enthusiasts. The British group Merlin Entertainments is studying the establishment of a new Legoland amusement park in Charleroi (Gosselies), on the former Caterpillar site .
    According to the daily, which mentions an actor close to the issue, the alternative Legoland amusement park seems quite solid today and even mentions a 75% chance of getting there!

    Merlin Entertainments is looking to develop a new Legoland park with attractions, hotels and restaurants in central Europe and needs an area of ??100 hectares. This is precisely the size of the Caterpillar site . The proximity of Charleroi airport, the motorway and rail network as well as the availability of labor are undoubtedly major assets.
    This operation is carried out jointly by Merlin Entertainments and the Walloon Region. Merlin is ready to put 100 million euros on the table. The entire project is estimated at 300 million. The group hopes to raise 200 million from investors within 6 weeks.
    The site which is being investigated.

    Chinese Theme Park Design: Hengdain 'Dream Kingdom' Attraction Concept Design

    With the Hengdian Shanghai Bund at Hengdian World Studios approaching completion, attention will turn to an all-new theme park endeavor- Hengdian Dream Kingdom. Designed by Legacy Entertainment (also responsible for the Hengdian Bund), the park's futuristic aesthetic contrasts the studio's other offerings of ancient and classical palaces and cityscapes.

    These images depict some of the E-Ticket attractions planned for this project;

    The World's largest snow park is due to open this year.

    The attraction will span across a huge 125,000 sq ft area, divided into distinct whimsical zones. We can look forward to themed-character and 13 thrilling rides and attractions co-conceived by Al Farwaniya Property Developers, Majid Al Futtaim Ventures and Thinkwell. It doesn’t matter if the weather outside is frightful. The park will be kept at a rosy-nosed -2ºC, with a 500mm covering of snow (more than enough for beefy snowball building) offering a year-round chill spot in this, our beloved land of the eternal sun.
    The enchanted-forest themed Snow Abu Dhabi is scheduled for completion in the last part of this year, and it’s being trailed as ‘the world’s largest snow park’.






    Construction is well underway at its location inside the USD1.2billon Reem Mall project, on Reem Island which is set to open around the same time.

    Light Parade Design: Lotte World 'Let's Dream!' Nighttime Spectacular Sketches

    These sketches were created during the Concept Design phases of the Let's Dream! nighttime spectacular and light parade at Lotte World in Seoul, Korea. Many of these effects and puppets were 'world's firsts', and were designed and built in collaboration between Legacy Entertainment and Michael Curry Design.

    Similarly to the SeaWorld Orlando concept shared in the previous post, this is Hetzel Design's concept for a "Giraffe Hotel" at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay. It was likely made around the same time as the SeaWorld Orlando art so 2017 but unlike most of the SeaWorld Orlando concepts this still could become reality someday:

    Hetzel Design has shared designs done for SeaWorld Orlando that are dated October 2017. This was soon after Zhonghong became involved in the company and perhaps when they were planning to put money into improving the parks.

    This is Hetzel Design's description of the project:

    Hetzel Design assisted the Sea World at turbulent times. Faced with negative publicity stemming from “the Black Fish” movie, the Sea World was having hard time making public aware of its massive environmental conservation and protection efforts. We were part of a major park overhaul, which included phasing out of the marine mammal shows, and introduction of other, media based attractions that promoted animal health and ocean protection. A lot of great work went into this effort, but stays confidential to this date. A gateway hotel was also envisioned as a major entry statement.
    Notice that the description mentions phasing out marine mammal shows in general, not specifically killer whales. Regarding the concept art, Infinity Falls and Sesame Street Land can be seen but as you continue around the park that is where the design becomes drastically different. Instead of the under construction Ice Breaker coaster, a larger launch coaster is seen with the station directly in front of Wild Arctic and instead of the coaster heading towards Bayside Stadium it instead heads along and over the central lake almost to Mako. The coaster's color and train design resembles that of Wave Breaker at SeaWorld San Antonio.

    The area around Bayside Stadium features rockwork with a tropical/oceanic theme. An underwater submarine ride of sorts is seen with a large building (potentially a ride building) in the back replacing what is currently the ride area for Ice Breaker and Sea Harbor Pavilions (special event area).

    A large hotel, event venue, and new entrance area replace what is currently the entrance area and part of the parking lot.

    The majority if not all of the expansion plans are not current so I am just sharing for interest:
