    The "Journey to the West" Park project in Huai'an is scheduled to open in 2020 however the images make it look for from complete. Park looks interesting though.









    Up to now, the project has completed the excavation of 39 large-scale monomers such as "The Birth of Monkey King" and "Leiyin Temple", and the main structure of the whole park has been topped. It is expected to be basically completed by the end of 2020 and some equipment commissioning will be carried out.

    I love this rather mad concept art for OCT vision land park for Zhaoqing in China.



    Some slightly terrifying art and a model of the new OCT vision land park for Zhaoqing in China. Some interesting rides to note on the art. But as always take early concept art with quite a bit of salt.

    Posting the screengrabs separately in case they need removing though there is nothing in here that isn't already in other documents and it's all public. These are from the consultation this evening and just give a flavour of what is being shared.

    I attended the consultation this evening.

    I asked about the timeshares article I shared recently. The answer was that it will not be the housing mentioned in the proposal that will be sold for timeshares but that they are working with investment companies for the hotels to sell into overseas markets.

    Some things that I have made note of:
    1. There will be staff housing built specifically for staff members to accommodate shift patterns and long working hours.
    2. They are trying to make the majority of visitors use public transport to avoid traffic issues - I asked if they thought Coronavirus might make them rethink that as people avoid PT. They answered that they hope that by the opening date it will not longer be an issue.
    3. There will be a footpath that follows the river that connects the areas around the resort to the resort so locals can walk in and from the resort you can walk out to the protected marshes surrounding the resort.
    4. Visitor numbers on peak days: both parks open on peak will be 75,000 visitors over the two parks.
    5. They are looking at ways to stop people parking in local areas and walking in but they are not sure how to tackle that at the moment, the conversation is still ongoing.
    6. They are aiming for net zero carbon impact for the park and will be one of the most environmentally friendly parks in the world.
    7. They are aiming to pay over the legal minimum wage. That is still under consideration but they hope to be competitive.
    8. Contractors will be contacted and tendors released over the next 12 months.
    9. The resort will not have as many hotel rooms as some similar international resorts but they believe many new hotels will grow into the area.

    They are being extremely transparent and it's worth attending if you have an interest. It has given me more hope that this might get off the ground but I am still extremely skeptical that this will ever see the light of day.

    Also pretty sure they just name checked themeparX, did anyone else on the call hear it? In response to "Andy's" question about the concept art being taken down. "Andy" didn't mention this site but I think the speaker then said something about it?

    The consultation period has only just begun, there will not be anything to show from it for a few months yet whilst they gather information. You can find out more here https://consultation.londonresort.info/ and also sign up for the consultation meetings online if you want to find out more. I will be attending one next week and will pass on anything I learn from it.

    It is hard to say and honestly at the moment I wouldn't worry until you start seeing actual construction taking place.

    I would forecast (based on other similar projects) that overall it will increase the house prices in the area - if it's built fully with park etc BUT it will also flood the housing market with lowish quality apartments from developers so if you have a larger house further on the housing ladder i.e. not a starter home you may find it more difficult to sell as the market will be more focussed towards smaller homes for rental and first time buyers. So totally depends on your home, what stage you intend to sell in and what actually gets built.

    Overall the improved infrastructure should work in your favour but with COVID having an impact on people not commuting as much this might be less pronounced.

    I am a local resident (Greenhithe, approx 1.5 miles from the site), and am a little worried that this will drive values down over the next few years as the parks construction gathers pace.

    Ticiland is a new indoor theme park in Switzerland from a team of well known theme park professionals. It looks like it's due to open at the end of this year and construction is still ongoing.













    Primarily aimed at a family target, content and details of Ticiland will be revealed in September. However, some attractions are already known.
    As centerpieces, we found in particular a Force Two roller coaster, as well as a 14-meter drop tower, both from the German manufacturer Zierer . The essential carousels and other flying chairs are obviously part of the game.

    Some more images from the opening of Mianying Fantawild park.



    Mianyang Fantawild Oriental Painting Theme Park is jointly invested and built by Huaqiang Fantawild Group and Jiangyou Municipal People's Government. It is the first Fantawild theme park in Sichuan Province. The park covers an area of ??more than 600,000 square meters, with a total investment of more than 3 billion yuan.










    On the day of the opening of the park, Mianyang Fantawild also held a special "Huafu Garden Festival". Hundreds of Hanfu fans showed up in the park. Under the background of the park’s antique buildings, the beauty of Hanfu’s elegance was fully demonstrated, which became an eye-catching landscape in the park on that day. On the evening of the opening of the park, Mianyang Fangte presented a gorgeous firework show for the majority of tourists. The gorgeous fireworks light up the night sky, marking a successful end to the opening day of the Mianyang Fang

    Merlin Entertainments are looking for an LEGOLAND Asia Project Development Finance Director which has this listed in the job description.

    Initially this will be focussed mainly in Asia with live projects in Korea and Shenzhen (China), two imminent further projects in China (Chengdu and Shanghai), collectively representing circa £1.5bn investment over 4 years, with the possibility of more to follow.
    Looks like we should see some movement on Shanghai soon.

    There's a lot of information in this article as it's mainly about high housing prices in areas where promises are being made about improved infrastructure before those improvements are made but it also has info about the proposed park. Looks like this article was posted 8th June but I may be wrong as the translation isn't great...

    The current situation of Qingyuan Chimelong site photographed by netizens


    It is reported that the slow construction of Qingyuan Chimelong is closely related to the slow construction of Qingyuan Transportation. Qingyuan originally planned to have a maglev tour line. The line has Chimelong Theme Park Station, which is connected to Yinqing Station of Guangqing City Rail. However, as with the construction of the Guangqing City Rail, the construction cycle of this maglev line has been postponed repeatedly. The dedicated line, which was originally scheduled to open to traffic at the end of 2019, has not yet been clearly opened.
