    Could that be the Intamin that’s now being installed at Seaworld, which is just next door?

    In this concept art, the pathway to the new area starts between Pirates of the Caribbean and the Haunted Mansion.

Meanwhile as the design for the central area of the resort (waterpark, hotels, etc.) evolves that part of the concept art gets more detailed and accurate in the newer version...
    The water coasters also share the same layout, and possibly Adventure City in Kunming is flipped to make part of The Studio in London. There will probably be more clones and similarities between the two.

    This was first proposed in 2018, and at that time this would have been true. Wales Online are the ones with outdated info.

    Well as has already been said, all of these rides are from the cancelled Six Flags Dubai, which will most likely have had a kids area, along with the wheel, Starflyer and GCI coaster, all of which are in this expansion.

    A basic kids rides section might not fit Bollywood Park that well, but when you have a load of rides already bought, you gotta put them somewhere. If the Six Flags park has never been, this expansion may have been more immersive and in keeping with what is already at the park.

    Interestingly it looks like the RMC Goliath clone that also appears in the Six Flags Dubai concept art, at some point they switched to GCI for whatever reason, but intriguingly this makes it look like they switched after sending the rides from six flags to the other parks, which doesn’t make too much sense.

I think that they should stop comparing it to Disneyland Paris as it’s similar very slightly but no similar enough to compare them both!
    While many might mistake it for an actual Disneyland, I think describing as the “UK’s answer to Disneyland” is their best bet at getting the general public to understand what it actually is. There are maybe three sorts of park the public might understand - amusement park, lower-budget theme park and higher-budget theme park - the UK has some amusement parks and lower-budget theme parks about that the public may have been to or at least know of, and it’s important that this potential development is understood to be very different to what the UK currently has on offer, so to make it clear that this will be different they say it’s similar to the one major high-budget chain that the public actually know - Disney.

    It isn’t great of course that some media outlets describe it as ‘UK Disneyland’ rather than ‘UK’s answer to Disneyland’, as that is a definite statement that it is a Disneyland.

    According to https://www.indianretailer.com/article/brands/brand-licensing/Disneyland-opening-soon-in-India.a4725/ which is a news article from 2016, the local tourism department had at most contacted Disney to show them incentives to build a resort in the area.

    Considering it’s been four and a half years, I doubt anything came of this.

    I would surely expect a post-Brexit UK to be encouraging major tourism projects like this.

    The reason it’s on hold though isn’t financial like most projects, but due to the state of the entire region’s theme park industry; if other parks in the UAE continue to become more successful, then maybe it will be built.

    Though the affect on tourism by Covid might mean that the financial backing disappears also.

    Had a quick look at the Peppa Pig land in Heide park (which of course is also Merlin owned) on Google Earth and found that one ride is definitely the same (if not flipped):

    The concept in the video appears to be that from the Paramount Kunming park

    Not news, but it looks to me as though the water ride and studio/backlot section of this park are the same as in the London Resort. The water ride’s building is the exact shape as on the London Resort’s concept map, and the other section looks the same but flipped as the Studio in London.
