icon_STOP2020 - Wakala - (1/30/20) According to Interpark, the new family coaster coming to Bellewaerde in 2020 will be called Wakala. The name is a reference to a legendary figure of the Canadian Indian tribe. The unique layout of this Geratlauer family coaster is interesting, as looks like it will end by sending riders up a spike for a roll-back experience before moving forward once again and back into the station on a swtich track.

DREAM ISLAND / Formerly DREAMWORKS MOSCOW (Russia)

icon_STOP2020 - New Park - Under Construction - (12/15/19) A nice aerial photo of Dream Island, a new indoor theme park in Moscow under construction can be found here, with the picture taken today. According to the article Dream Island is set to open at the end of February and from the look of things on the outside at least, I can believe it, as the front facade looks completely finished. The park’s design will have a central alley ending with a merry-go-round and four promenades, each with a custom theme: Barcelona, Beverly Hills, London and Rome, with a glass roof over it all. The Dream Island park will have eight zones themed after different characters and worlds: Smurfs, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Hello Kitty, Hotel Transylvania, Mowgli in the Land of Dinosaurs, Dream Race, Snow Queen Castle and Magic Village.
 
    (9/25/18) Some great progress is being made on the Dream Island indoor park structure in Moscow, Russia. Check out the pictures in the tweet below.

 
    (5/11/18) It's been awhile since we've heard much of anything about Dream Island, the indoor theme park project going up in Moscow, but apparently progress is being made on the huge structure. Check out the new pictures posted to Twitter earlier today.

    (2/1/18) According to BlooLoop, the Dream Island indoor theme park under construction in Moscow is back on track once again after progress came to a halt due to lack of funding. A new $657 million loan is now in place to finish the project, with hopes to open in 2019.
    The indoor park will feature 40 different attractions in 10 different themed zones, with nine having been confirmed so far:
    Smurfs Village
    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Reported to feature a Drop Tower ride.
    Hotel Transylvania
    Lost World of Dinosaurs
    Snow Queen’s Castle
    Racing Cars Land
    Princess Castle Land
    House of Horror
    House of Papa Carlo
    (11/12/17) I still don't know too much about this project, but construction is ongoing for the Dream Island indoor theme park in Moscow, according to photos posted earlier this month to ThemeparX.
    (4/10/17) The former DreamWorks themed park in Russia is still under construction it seems... even without a DreamWorks theme. As I understand it the park is now being called Dream Island. The spires of the park's large fake castle entrance plaza are quickly rising into the skyline already however and can be seen in the latest photo updates posted to ThemeparX.
    (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.

FANTASY ISLAND  (Skegness, United Kingdom)

2020 - Turbulence - (1/17/20) Fantasy Island in the UK will open a new flat ride this season to be called Turbulence. The flat ride may look similar to a Mondial Top Scan, but this is actually a Star Shape from Zierer. Other than the section of the ride with the rotating seats that the riders sit in, the similarities to the Top Scan end there, as the motion of the Star Shape actually swings back and forth and loops upside-down along the way, with a ride sequence that has more in common with an Evolution than a Top Scan.
    According to ThemeParks-UK the new ride actually ran as Bling at Blackpool Pleasure Beach from 2004 to 2011, and then a Sky Jet at Skyline Park in Germany from 2012 to 2019, before traveling back to the UK.

JOURNEY TO THE WEST (China)

Opening Late 2020 - (1/17/20) While I had heard rumors about the “Journey To the West“ theme park under construction in China over the years, those tales went cold awhile back. With nothing new said in quite some time I had feared the project ran out of the steam and died, but apparently not, as Journey To the West will finally be ready to open by late 2020. According to the report at Interpark the 560 acre park will feature eight themed areas, 25 attractions,  eight of which will be indoor.

LIGHTWATER VALLEY (UK)
Livingstone Leisure

icon_STOPPark News - (2/2/20) Screamscape sources tell us that Lightwater Valley will only be closing Twister and that they will keep the Apollo ride open for now.
 
    (2/1/20) While I haven’t heard about anything new coming to Lightwater in 2020, RideRater reports that the park will remove the Twister coaster involved in the accident last year as well as the Apollo (a mini Star Flyer style ride from AK Rides) before the park opens for the 2020 season.
 
    (6/1/19) A quick update on the boy who fell from the coaster at the Lightwater Valley theme park. They are now saying that he is 7 and not 6, and his current medical condition is listed as being “critical but stable”. The Twister coaster will remain closed indefinitely while the accident is under investigation.
 
    (5/31/19) According to local news reports a six-year-old boy fell from the Twister coaster (Reverchon Spinning Coaster) at Lightwater Valley. He was airlifted for medical treatment and his condition is not believed to be life threatening. While we don’t know what happened, a few witness reports claim to have seen the boy rising up from his seat and coming out the back of the car as it was moving along the track, while seated next to his mother. They think he may have fell about 15 feet while the car was diving towards the ride’s photo camera system.
    While I’ve never been on the Twister itself, typically the Reverchon Spinning coasters use a large lapbar restraint that comes down from overhead, holding in the riders in pairs. There is already some question about if the child was tall enough, or if this could have been a combination of a small child sitting next to a large adult, leaving too much of a gap in the shared lapbar restraint.

After that they said to expect new rides aimed at thrill seekers as well as some that may use virtual reality and other new technologies to enhance the ride experience.

 

M&D’s (near Glasgow, Scotland)

icon_STOPPark News - (12/9/19) You may recall the accident that took place at M&D’s in Scottland back in 2016, when the park’s Tsunami inverted coaster train derailed from the track and caused injury to the 8 children and 2 adults that were riding it. According to this news report the victims of the accident were awarded a total of £1.2 million in damages.

NIGLOLAND (France)

Park News - (9/6/19) Nigoland has made sudden changes to their Africa Cruise ride after a social media post showing off an animatronic scene on the attraction was accused of being racist and a social media whirlwind soon followed. The attraction and scene have been in operation at the park for decades thus far without comment, and it is somewhat of a copy of a famous scene from Disney’s Jungle Cruise where a couple of humans are trapped half-way up a tree, avoiding the pointed horn of a Rhino below. In this case however you have what appears to be a white Europan man, joined in the tree with a black man wearing a fez hat, holding a bunch of bananas and speaking in an African accent.
    The park’s reaction has removed the bananas from the figure and is said to have also shut down the audio track while they review it for changes. The park has also promised that when the park closes in the winter, they will completely overhaul the scene in question. Nigoland has also released a statement to say that, "Nigloland has no advantage in showing racist, homophobic scenes, or expressing political views. The park is universal and open to all.”

WONDERLAND EURASIA (Ankara, Turkey)

icon_STOPPark News - (2/19/20) The local news reports that Turkey’s Wonderland Eurasia (formerly called Ankapark) is now closed for good after failing to attract enough business. The ambitious project had attempted to open with 17 roller coasters, but as I understand it, by the time the last coasters were finished and opened, several of the initial coasters had already been shut down and had issues, so I don’t know if they ever were able to get all 17 up and running at the same time or not. Many of the coasters were very small and compact, but the park did have a few standouts like Lightspeed (a 10 inversion Intamin) or Oksoko Ofkesi (a Chinese built copy of the Maurer Skyloop concept).
    I’d imagine that most of the park’s rides have already hit the used-ride market, as there should be plenty of interest in buying rides that were only run for one season.
 
    (5/13/19) Previously announced under the name “Ankapark”, the park was promoted as being Europe’s biggest theme park, and while the plan was to open with 17 roller coasters, they were a bit behind on that item (they opened with 7), along with a laundry-list of other incomplete items that apparently includes incomplete pathways, several buildings still under construction, and even some areas with open manhole covers. The park is quite nice to look at so far, and does have some charm to it, so it should be fascinating to watch as they finish up the initial development.
