Re: Dubai Parks & Resorts

So I've known for some time that Motiongate was originally planned to have an area themed to 20th Century Fox, but that was scrapped in favor of Lionsgate and to be used as possible future expansion (unlikely now due to the Disney acquisition), but some early blueprints have been released online sho...

Tokyo Dome City

Tokyo Dome City Quick report time, this time from Tokyo Dome City. Located in the heart of Tokyo, this park is most famous for its Intamin Hyper Coaster known as 'Thunder Dolphin', I had to check it out. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Duth4zSW4AYgtxo.jpg The park is nowhere to be found when you are a 5...

Re: Universal Orlando Resort

I’m quite certain that it has been said that the current JP area in IoA is being rethemed to Jurassic World when the new coaster is installed. Apparently that originally was going to be the case due to the re theme of the Hollywood ride, however internal plans have apparently changed due to this ne...

Re: Universal Orlando Resort

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...

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...
