    Chessington World of Adventures in the UK has just had its planning permission approved for its new land.

    Project Amazon is a go! Planning permission has today been GRANTED for Chessington to proceed with the construction of a brand-new themed land!


    The project, set to include three new rides, including a brand-new roller coaster attraction is planned to open in 2023. The new roller coaster is well needed. It is the first new coaster at the park since Dragon’s Fury in 2004. The ride is a Wing Coaster model, expected to be built by roller coaster manufacturer B&M. Featuring multiple launches and a boomerang layout. The ride is the first of its kind for the manufacturer.

    Alongside the new roller coaster, there will be two other rides. One is a Miami type ride and the other is a small children’s carousel type attraction. The area will also feature heavy theming. Including a large themed structure that lays within the layout of the new roller coaster. Other large theming statues and themed pathing and planting complete the area.

    Some shots of the up and coming Fantawild Dinosaur Park in Zigong, China. Due to open soon the park is a unique theme for the Fantawild chain (Zigong is famous for its dinosaur fossils) but features only 2 small Vekoma's in its coaster line up, an SFC and a Junior Boomerang.

    Opening in 2022, the Battersea Power Station Chimney Lift is set to be a one-of-a-kind experience, taking you to the top of the North West chimney for unrivalled 360-degree views of London’s skyline and a truly unique perspective back down onto the historic landmark.

    Set to become one of the most exciting viewing platforms in the capital, with views that include both the Shard and London Eye, the glass Chimney Lift will hold up to 30 visitors and be available to the public as well as for private events.

    Before venturing into the Chimney Lift, visitors will also be able to experience a state-of-the-art immersive exhibition in Turbine Hall A, which celebrates the Grade II* listed building’s history and cultural influence.
    Really cool virtual view from the top of the planned lift... https://360.batterseapowerstation.co.uk/chimney-lift/

    Some construction shots of Happy Valley in Xi'an, China and their new Golden Horse Inverted coaster. It seems the park is also expected to get a mine train, a wooden/steel hybrid coaster and a launched coaster before its opening in mid to late 2022.

    New concept art for Guardians of the Galaxy and mention of animatronics.



    The exclusive featured an interview with Imagineer Wyatt Winter, who claimed that the attraction is a combination of “animatronics, digital media, and the series’ signature soundtrack of pop-rock hits”, the first mention of any Audio-Animatronics coming to the new attraction.

    There is absolutely something wrong with the site, all links to tickets have been removed and anything from the direct link (like facebook tickets) goes to the 404 error page.

    BUT they have been open the past few days and are posting on social media even today so I've dropped them a message to see what the deal is. It could just be the ticketing site provider has gone down.

    Businesses have been invited to declare their interest in becoming a supplier to a multi-billion pound theme park project dubbed Britain's answer to Disneyland. The £2.5bn London Resort is set to be constructed on the Swanscombe Peninsula, between Dartford and Gravesend, with plans to open its first gate in 2024.
    Now bosses are inviting local and regional businesses to become part of its supply chain. Planners say the park will be a "gamechanger" for the entertainment and leisure industry in the UK, generating £50bn of gross economic activity over an initial 25-year period.

    Can anyone understand the legal language here and explain whether this is good/bad or just procedural? To me this sounds like it could be negative and that LRCH have to provide more details to support their planning permissions and other applications because they are not sufficient or have been changed?

    Please keep away from speculation - we all have ideas on how well this is going, but I am interested in knowing if this is actually something that might change the course of the planning?

    Pretty sure the "rare species of spider being discovered" has been given as the reason for delay at least 4 times since 2013...
