I love the Vekoma renderings!

Is the robocoaster simulator like Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey?

Yes, it's on track and have both physical and screen-based sequences, on dome carrousels. However it's far from being at the same level of quality as the original one... For instance, I read that you can see the shadow of the vehicle on the screens. Erk. :lol:

Fantawild Oriental Heritage park in Xiamen is now open.
The woodie is customers designed from gravity group and Martin & Vleminckx and looks excellent.

Fantawild have announced a new resort for Changsha in China. The park is already well under construction and will be the home of a new Vekoma Hyper Space coaster. Basically an extended non launched version of Formula 1 and Energylandia.

Strangely the resort is not that far from the existing parks in Zhuzhou.

With the next round of Fantawilds now on their way this seems like a good time to post a summary with what we know.

While the locations of the parks are all pretty well nailed down there is a bit of educated guessing with one or two of the ride lineups in the later parks. (E.g the Woodie at Handan isnt confirmed to be MVR built but they've never used anyone else)

Fantawild Nanning - 2017

The most fully complete of the currently under construction Fantawild parks. Nanning already has a Vekoma Boomerang and a MVR wooden coaster constructed. Odd thing about this park is it has a highway running right through the middle cutting the park in half. A walkway beneath the road provides access between the two sections. The wooden coaster is a clone of the one already operating in Zhengzhou.

Fantawild Silk Road Culture Park - Jiayuguan - 2017
The 2nd park in the northern city of Jiayuguan. Famous for being the western end of the Great Wall of China and part of the ancient silk road. This park looks to modify the standard Cultural Heritage park a bit for a more local theme. The roller coaster line up leaves a little to be desired however with a Vekoma Boomerang and the first example of Fantawild building a Beijing Shibaolai SLC.

Jiayuguan1.jpg

Fantawild Anyang - 2018
The first park in this City it is one of two currently under construction very near each other. The one in Handan is just up the road (see below) on the other side of the city.
Again a less inspiring line up with a Beijing Shibaolai SLC and Vekoma 335m Roller Skater currently on site.

Fantawild Changsha - 2018
A brand new resort in Changsha. Not very far from the existing resort in Zhuzhou. There will be three parks here with the first one seemingly taking on a new style for Fantawild with Science and Technology themeing. This is expected to be the first park to open with the new Vekoma Hyper Space Warp model.

Fantawild Oriental Jeritage - Jingzhou - 2018
A recent development and a park that looks like it will open with a custom designed MVR wooden roller coaster and a Vekoma Hyper Space Warp as well. Already well under construction I wouldn't be surprised to see rides popping up soon.

Fantawild Handan - 2019
Just up the road from Anyang this park seems to be running a fair bit behind. Another Fantawild park expected to pick up an MVR wooden coaster with a layout identical to the ones found in Jinan and Ningbo along with a Vekoma suspended junior coaster.

Handan1.jpg


Fantawild Taiyuan - 2019

Little known about this park other than its happening. Ground has been broken already but not much else has shown up yet.

Fantawild Oriental Heritage - Mianyang - 2019

One of the most recent announcements the park is expected to open with a Vekoma Boomerang and a Vekoma Hyper Space Warp looping coaster. The art below shows the coasters pretty well.

The Fantawild train doesn't seem to be slowing down any time soon.

There are a bunch of drawings in here from pages 11 to 18, including this layout overview:

Spot the new-gen Vekoma-like restraints! :b

Now that is the first scene of the ride (if you look up at the ride layout posted earlier, it's at the top left):

And here's a peek at the sheer size of the ride's show building, on the left hand side:

One more picture of this ride found on Fantawild Holdings Inc. :

This website also have various pictures and videos about other Fantawild attractions:

4D Dark-rides (Spiderman-like)
Simulated-Flight Rides (weird kinda-robocoaster dark-ride, not the one I got a picture above, I've never seen something like this!)
Shooting Dark-Rides (Midway Mania rip-off)
Suspended Spherical Theaters (Flying Theater, but here the screen is really half a sphere, while the western variations often lack the upper half)
Full dome Theater With Movable Sitting Platform (a rather impressive contraption which is a mix between a physical anminatronic show and a overhead dome screen)

Fantawild also have a relatively new Youtube channel, in English, with for instance this nice video of Qin Dynasty Adventure, an Indiana-Jones rip-off:
