Re: Universal Orlando Resort

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DuTYK8KUcAAkBjw.jpg Looks like the name of the 4th gate at Universal Orlando will officially be named: "Universal's Fantastic Worlds" Rumor has it that this new park will be unlike anything ever done before, with the park areas being called 'Worlds' which will ...

Re: Project 2020

Hmmm, could we have had our first tease for 2020? Thorpe's 2018 end of season video surfaced on Twitter a couple of days ago and one shot in particular caught my eye: Towards the end of the video (1:00 exactly) a random shot of a field is placed. Why place this in a video celebrating the 'best seas...

Re: theparklifekid's Middle East Adventures!

I had actually never heard about a single one of these theme parks you've mentioned... I guess that, as we say in Walloon and French, "I'll go to bed less stupid than I woke up"! I'd like to visit many of them, but aren't there issues with women not wearing hijabs or something along these...

Early groundwork on the park has begun, with temporary site offices and a few construction equipment and markings having shown up.

Re: Six Flags Dubai

Future on Six Flags Dubai is now uncertain. Wednesday was the first time Six Flags officials addressed what that could mean to the project — though they had few details other than saying that an on-time opening in 2019 was unlikely. “We cannot speak for our partner,” said Jim Reid-Anderson, presiden...

Lotte World Adventure

Lotte World Korea And here we go again, this time from South Korea. I was in the country for only a few days but I loved it and would one day love return, but I couldn't pass the opportunity to not go to a park. There were a few options including Gyeongju World or Everland, but I decided to go to a ...

Re: Drayton Manor

Its gonna be taken down at the end of this season according to the park manager. Which is a shame because I haven't got the cred. But apparently it rides awful. As Lady said its incredibly unreliable and hasn't been running for most of the year, I doubt it will be replaced with anything major. If th...

Re: London Entertainment Resort - General Discussion

Interestingly enough, the website lists an email and a phone number which you can contact for any questions. I decided to phone them and it goes strait to a dead number, hanging up strait away. I then sent an email but got a response saying that the email domain can't be found or doesn't exist. This...

Re: Six Flags Dubai

I’ve heard those rumours too, but I’m fairly certain that the park has secured funding, from images I’ve seen construction isn’t really in action currently and has slowed down, I believe this is due to them changing up a few things, it’s still on track for a late 2019 opening, will that happen? I sa...
