In this update i will be showing images of the now opened Malibu Park Resort,
When building the park i began to redevelop older ideas i had and make them more 'current'.
Areas in the park include - Island of Polynesia, Spaceport - Sponsored by Virgin
, The Forsaken Bay, and currently being built Beach Walk.
Photos to follow:
We start our tour at the newest part of the park - Beach Walk, only few buildings have been built and the area is still closed of for public viewing. On the left you can see the Beach Walk Bubble an observation tower.
Looking in the opposite direction, the entrance to Spaceport, which as some of you may have noticed has had yet another logo 'refresh' and a new sponsorship from Virgin.
Just in front of that entrance building is the Virgin Store, selling everything from Spaceport branded clothing to Virgin key rings.
One of the two onsite hotels is the Lunar Hotel, offering modern rooms and facilities, the hotel sits on the boundary of the park and is opposite the Virgin Store.
The exit to Voyage Space, an inverted coaster surrounding the whole Spaceport area, note the exit also offers a Fastpass entrance.
A Spaceport sign attached to the side of Voyage Space's station, with Rocket Launch in the background.
The entrance to Rocket Launch, which is Malibu Park's tallest attraction to date, with the Beach Walk Bubble being roughly 10 metres smaller.
Entrance to Voyage Space, the queue line tunnels through the hill behind the building and comes out opposite the station.
Overview of the area with Beach Walk top left, and the Lunar Hotel top middle.
Going back to the main entrance for the Malibu Park Resort, this entrance is an exact replica of the previous one at the old park.
The 'Malibu Boat' is back, losing the fountains though for now.
This photo gives you an insight into the new Malibu atmospheric lighting.
Another night photo, this time showing the entrance to Malibu Splash, with the new logo.
Crossing the bridge into the main park area, the gardeners went overboard with the plants.
Into the theme park plaza, another night picture. For Spaceport you turn left, for Island of Polynesia you turn right.
The entrance to Malibu Cloud, Malibu's Monorail service which runs around the park.
Going into Island of Polynesia, the entrance to Coconut Co. Minetrain. The whole entrance is covered with tropical plants.
Entrance shot of the Moku Mauna Falls, which were closed today because of a major leak in the station. This ride and the Coconut Co. Minetrain are the oldest in the park being built together.
The exit for Coconut Co. Minetrain. Note the Fastpass entrance again.
Entrance to Tiki Splash Battle, an interactive water zone. The water was switched off today though.
Kaukau Grill, serving burgers, meat baps, and fries to go.
Entrance to the second hotel - Exotic Adventures Hotel, with authentic polynesian decor and a Malibu Cloud station inside the hotel.
Bridge over the footpath, which carries the Malibu Cloud track.
Entrance to Island of Polynesia from the other side of the park.
Entrance to the Forsaken Bay, this area is waiting for signage to be produced so no singe is in this area yet.
The Galleon, which is the closest ride to the entrance.
First lift hill for the Rum Trading Company Flumes.
Alternative view of the lift hill.
Overview of the Rum Trading Company Flumes, with the unique dual station system, the left for exiting and the right for entering, this improves throughput and suggests the people riding before have 'vanished'. The queue line is underneath the canvas canopy.
The waterfall that fills the lake in the Forsaken Bay, and pipes then lead into the main Malibu River. The Rum Trading Company Flumes pass over the top of the waterfall.
The cannon water feature is powered entirely by gravity, a pipe leading from the top of the waterfall to the cannon.
The start of the lift hill for the Mystic Journey, which passes underneath the biggest drop for the Rum Trading Company Flumes.
The lift hill for the Mystic Journey, the first drop passes through the wooden structure. A ride car is currently passing through the first structure on the lift hill.
One of the Rum Trading Company Flumes ride cars after dropping down the largest decent.
The final decent for the Rum Trading Company Falls involves a close encounter with a stone archway.
Overview of the Forsaken Bay, with the Rum Trading Company Flumes' dual stations clearly shown and the biggest decent, next to Mystic Journey's lift hill and the waterfall.
The final area to visit is Malibu Splash, this is an overview of the waterpark, and shows the main pool and 'The Blast' watercoaster. The gap at the back is to be filled with more facades matching the surrounding buildings.
Entrance to 'The Blast', a spiral staircase leads to the slide entrance.
Malibu Splash's main pool with the Malibu Cloud track running over it.
I'll finish with this image of a history of Malibu Park's logos. Notice how the logo become more modern every time it is updated and how the colour scheme is dramatically changed with each update.
