DREAMLAND (Margate, UK)

Park News - (10/15/15) Great news from Dreamland, the oldest roller coaster in the UK will re-open today, ending a 12-year long battle to save it.
"The  Scenic Railway roller coaster at Dreamland Margate originally opened in 1920. After thrilling riders for 82 years, it was announced in December 2002 that the amusement park would be closed and the roller coaster demolished to make way for shops and housing. Oxfordshire-based planning consultant and visitor attraction owner Nick Laister set up the Save Dreamland Campaign, the aim of which was to save the Scenic Railway and the amusement park in which it sits."
    This epic event follows the reopening of Dreamland itself back in June 2015, and the reopening of the Scenic Railway coaster will be the crowning achievement of the efforts to Save Dreamland all these years. Well done folks, well done! Below you can see a video shot by the European Coaster Club earlier this month as they toured the Scenic Railway and even got to walk the track, since it wasn't quite ready to roll just yet. The video also includes some other great footage of the other attraction in Dreamland as well as some footage of the Scenic Railway make test runs, with the brakeman at the stick.

icon_STOPDREAMWORKS MOSCOW (Russia)

2017 - New Park - (11/13/15) A great photo update showing off the site of the future Dreamworks Moscow theme park site has been posted to ThemeparX this week. A pair of local photographers went out to photograph the site, which is now surrounded by a construction wall with guards, and with a banner showing off a piece of concept art. Scroll down more and you'll find pictures of the actual site mapped out as well for future development. According to the banner, construction has begun as of the 3rd Quarter 2015 and is expected to be complete by the end of 2017. We hope to find out more official information about this project in the near future.
    (5/19/15) It has been quite some time since we’ve heard anything at all about the once announced “DreamWorks” indoor theme park planned for Russia, but new details were finally given out at an urban planning meeting this month. The large indoor complex will feature not only a small theme park, but a multi-screen cinema, children’s cafes, retail and dining locations, a concert hall, hotel and a children’s yachting school.
   The complex is to be built by 2018 in Nagatinskaya Poima, and it will also share the space with Russian animator Soyuzmultfilm who will run their own small theme park next door. If this first location works out, they hope to build two more in Russia in St. Petersburg and Yekaterinburg.

???? - New Park - (11/25/14) A new theme park is planned to open in Beijing, China in Summer 2015 called Eternity Passage. The project will feature two entrances and two main lands, one outdoor and one indoor, and is connected as part of the larger Beijing Outlets World resort and mall. The park is going to be small by today’s standards, but will feature the overall theme of time travel with both entrances having guests pass over a bridge passing through a massive portal that reminds me very much of the old “Stargate” Film and TV Series, complete with glowing icons around the ring.
    An article posted to Blooloop mentions a few attractions by name such as: Vision Drop (experience Space Tourism), Voyages of Discovery (indoor boat ride and theater), Beijing Time Machine, Nu Wa Mends the Heavens, Magic Farm and Haunted Farm, the later of which will be a new interactive dark ride experience.

KOLMARDEN  (Sweden)

icon_STOP2016 - Wildfire - Under Construction - (12/22/15) The official Wildfire blog site have posted two new videos... one is a commercial for the ride while the other is a new animated virtual ride video that really shows off the fine details and themeing that will come along with this crazy new coaster. I've embedded the animation below, but follow the link to see the blog, construction progress videos and more.

    (6/27/15) Huge news for Kolmarden yesterday, as the park was finally given permission to continue with their proposed Wildfire roller coaster project from Rocky Mountain Construction. Considering that it looks as if RMC may have moved on with some other projects, having missed the previously scheduled start of construction months ago, I'm not sure if Wildfire will still be able to open in Spring 2016 as intended or if they will reschedule it. I imagine that the park is currently in talks with RMC to see if they can salvage their previous timetable or not at this point.
    (2/28/15) The local news reports that Kolmarden's WildFire coaster project has been indefinitely delayed due to the local government canceling the building permit and requiring a more detailed plan to be presented before they can apply again. This is unfortunately, as the park was given permission to go ahead with their new coaster plans back on October 8th, 2014, but it seems several groups have filed complaints and appeals against it since then due to ride's location next to the existing zoo and nature reserve areas. The proposed 2016 opening date is now likely not to happen unless the park can successfully appeal this last second change just before they were begin construction.
    (4/9/14) Kolmarden has announced the details of their new Wildfire project as Europe’s first Rocky Mountain Construction coaster project to open in 2016, claiming it will be the “Best Wooden Roller Coaster in the WORLD!” The coaster will feature many airtime hills, a very large and steep first drop (49 meters / 160 feet at 83), three inversions and a very high-speed layout (up to 113kph / 70mph) that will make use of the park’s natural terrain for much of the ride.
   You can catch the animated preview video below as well as several stills and a couple of concept photos where the ride’s layout has been photoshopped over real pictures of the park so you can get a great look at how it will use the park’s natural terrain features.

    (3/21/14) Kolmarden, primarily wildlife park with a growing rides section, will announce a major new project called Wildfire on April 8th at 10am. The park is known as Sweden’s biggest wildlife park and one of the world’s top zoos, but their preview website and video for the new Wildfire attraction is quite interesting.

    (10/26/15) Lewa Adventure, a new theme park in China that opened over the summer will soon be opening a new major thrilling coaster from Mack Rides that will either be called "Flash" according to RCDB, though according to a new video posted by Mack Rides on YouTube showing the ride testing, they are now calling it Lightning and it will feature the "Worlds Highest Loop" and 1287 meters of track. Check it out below, because it looks to be quite the ride from what little we get to see of it. I can't wait to see more.

    (1/6/15) VHCoasters has posted a layout picture showing off an amazing looking layout for a new Mack Mega Coaster coming to Lewa Happy World in Xi'an, China in late 2015. A second layout picture can be found on their Twitter.

(3/27/15) I’ve got some good news about Junker at PowerPark, the new coaster will actually open THIS summer (2015) and not in 2016. It seems a little something was lost in translation on the press release from Finnish to English, but it’s all worked out for the best. The park as also set up two web cams so you can check on the progress of Junker:   Camera 1 and Camera 2.
    (3/26/15) PowerPark (Finland) has announced they will open the wildest roller coaster in northern Europe next year. They have named it "Junker" and claim it will hit 100 km/h in just 1.9 seconds. The launch will send the train up into a 40 meter tall top-hat style element before plunging the riders back towards the ground and into a series of inversions, through a pond, into an underground tunnel under the pond and more along the 860 meter length, where riders will hit G-forces up to 4.5G.
    Junker is already under construction at the park and is expected to open in June 2016 and is being made by Gerstlauer.
