    National Central Cooling Company (Tabreed) will build and operate a new dedicated plant at the SeaWorld Abu Dhabi site by 2022.
    Once completed, “the development will benefit from a reliable, technologically advanced and sustainable source of cooling interconnected to the Yas Island centralised cooling scheme”, said Tabreed.

    Under the terms of a deal agreed with developer Miral, Tabreed will connect the new SeaWorld Abu Dhabi development to its existing Yas Island district cooling scheme while the new plant is under construction. This will deliver a cooling capacity of 7,500 refrigeration tons with a total concession capacity of 15,000 refrigeration tons (RT).
    Gurjit Singh, chief portfolio officer at Miral added: “We are pleased to be expanding our partnership with Tabreed, a state-of-the-art cooling infrastructure on Yas Island, delivering crucial cooling services to many of our award-winning theme parks. SeaWorld Abu Dhabi is set to be Yas Island’s next mega attraction, and with this agreement, we ensure the continuous delivery of trusted, reliable and energy-efficient services to our growing portfolio of developments. This is yet another step towards our vision of positioning Yas Island as a top global destination for leisure and entertainment.

    I love this concept art showing how a second park would fit into the existing expansion pad.

    Here's a satpic overlay before & after. Two hotel plots remain

    I love how every time this park gets talked about there is always reference to Disney Parks - this is highly irresponsible. It fails to acknowledge the losses Disneyland Paris Resort has made in its years of operation and how much it is subsidised by the international parks and Disney's other income streams. If the London Resort makes losses like Disney and its partners have done on Disneyland Paris it will be completely financially unsustainable.

    Yes, Disneyland Paris generates a lot of money for the local economy, that's a great ambition for the London Resort to have but if it isn't making money to fund itself it will very quickly go bankrupt and there is no big brand backing like Disney has to foot the bill when it does.

    I am glad they finally have planning in, I really hope this comes off but, for the love of God, please stop comparing to a park that has absolutely zero in common with the project.

    Permits for individual buildings at Epic Universe have continued to be posted over the last several months. Plan review comments for Donkey Kong's show building (B1315) were recently added to its permit from last month. (Fees have not been paid though, except for temporary work.)

    This article backs what I have been saying all along and matches up with the response I got during the consultations about investment. They are looking for Middle Eastern and Indian backing to buy up timeshare hotel rooms and investment properties. This is what drove the theme park bubble in Dubai for a long time and how many of those got built? Many have the apartments and hotels but no park after years, many have never even delivered the items that were sold.

    “Generally speaking, those whom we’ve spoken to have been of Middle Eastern origin,” said James Hayward, investment director at London-based investment brokerage Farrbury Capital Partners.

    “We market globally... We still have healthy investment in the UK, although I would also say those who invest from the UK have been predominantly of Middle Eastern descent. It is very, very popular in this neck of the woods. So that’s predominantly where we are seeing investment coming from,” he added.
    This project is not about the theme park at all, it never has been - it's a regeneration project and an investment project ran by investment people. Look at the make up of the project team right now - how many of those people have theme park experience? How many have investment or property experience? You can put out all the concept art you like (or not in this case) but unless you have people who have delivered parks before it will fail to be realised.

    I would love to see this park built but it's so pie in the sky I just don't see it happening.

    It's a dead park. It will never be built.

    Thank you for the translation - it's interesting to understand what the local people think of it given that it has obviously been controversial.

    It was confirmed as a requirement for an exclusive inspection team to reside at the construction site of Legoland, a theme park based off of the children's toy Lego, by nine months before the opening.

    The Legoland theme park which is to be hosted by Jung-do, Lake Uiam's inner island of Gangwon-do is said to have its first phase cost around 300 Bil. KRW won (276.8 Mil. USD dollars), and with the exception of the hotel is said to have 50% of the theme park and the infrastructure's construction complete."

    For your information, the comments on this video seems to be heavily panning the construction of this park in general. They seem to be complaining that the park trespasses many prehistoric artifacts and that a massive excavation should be in its place instead.

    Along with the new waterpark, Liseberg in Sweden are also opening a new onsite hotel - The Grand Curiosa Hotel - which should open in 2023. Construction of the hotel got properly underway in the summer and is progressing very well by the looks of these photos from today.

    This report says there is a delayed safety inspection which contributed to the hold up to 2022 opening. Can anyone translate and give better information?
