Jeju Shinhwa World Construction (South Korea)

Postby Gutterflower » Mon Jun 05, 2017 2:40 pm

Jeju Shinhwa World is part of the new Resorts World Jeju Project currently going up on the South Korean Island of Jeju.
The theme park will have a legends and myths theme overall with areas called Medieval Kingdom, Olympus, Persian Dynasty, The East and Oscars New World.

The Overall resort features a water park, casinos, hotels and a theme park much like Resorts World in Singapore but this time without Universal Studios.

The park itself is under construction already and it appears there is already a fully built Mack Spinner on site. The coaster appears to be a clone of Turbulence at Adventureland with a slightly modified station layout.

The theme park itself isn't due to open until 2019 however.

This has got to be one of the most compact layout I've ever seen!!

Also, the concept arts look fantastic!

Korean parks have been pretty stagnant lately with nothing major for quite a while, not sure why but a lot of the parks have suddenly started expanding and it's great! Two parks that were relatively unchanged installed Zamperla air races and 360 swings, there's a B&M Dive Coaster and Zamperla Thunderbolt coming (not excited for that but at least something new is coming), Legoland and this project as well as talks again about some of the Incheon projects. Sadly still no Universal Studios near my house 8 years later though.

From what I've heard of this project and even the site you have listed has a picture of flight times, their big push with this seems to be aiming more for bringing in the Chinese tourists/cashing in on China's theme park boom than aiming at the Koreans.

Lionsgate are now involved with this park:

Audiences that raved about novel-based science fiction adventure film franchise "Hunger Games" will be able to experience the thrill at a theme park on Jeju Island.

Landing Jeju Development, a wholly owned subsidiary of Landing International Development Limited, said Wednesday it signed with the United States' Lionsgate, the franchise's distributor, to build "Lionsgate Movie World" as part of recreational resort complex Jeju Shinhwa World now under construction.

The theme park, built over 122,000 square meters, will be Lionsgate's first branded outdoor park and the biggest among the studio's location-based entertainment businesses.

The park will have seven zones, each themed around different blockbuster movies and featuring reproduced streets and towns, rides, 4D experience halls, restaurants, cafes, souvenir shops and entertainment performances. The thematic movies include the "Hunger Games," "Twilight Saga" and "Now You See Me" franchises and "Robin Hood," to be released next March.

The five "Twilight" films grossed more than $3.3 billion worldwide, while the four "Hunger Games" movies raked in $2.9 billion.

Yang Zhihui, chairman and executive director of Landing International Development Limited, said: "We are very excited to have the first Lionsgate Movie World at Jeju Shinhwa World, bringing Hollywood movies and their immersive environments to our theme park to deliver a premium guest experience.

"With Lionsgate's success in the content creation industry, we strongly believe that Lionsgate Movie World at Jeju Shinhwa World will enhance our offerings and further strengthen Jeju Shinhwa World's market position as a desired tourist destination in Jeju."

Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer said: "Under the leadership of Tim Palen, Kerry Phelan and Jenefer Brown, and driven by a valuable portfolio of intellectual property, we have built a global location-based entertainment business in just three short years, and Lionsgate Movie World promises to become one of its crown jewels."

The park's construction will begin next year and it will be open for business in 2019.

The park looks almost done. Seems it may well open way earlier than the 2019 I expected (perhaps this is the overall resort complex)

I couldn't find the article on the main site by searching so I screenshotted my phone, the park will open September 30th. This coincides with an almost unheard of 10 day national holiday period. Coincidentally I am also visiting that island for the first time since I came to Korea that week.

Not sure if I will visit the park though. I'm not a first kind of guy and with it being opening and that big national holiday I think the island will be packed, it's already the worlds busiest air route and that is the busiest week so might be better to hold off and enjoy the park a few years later than be packed now. Maybe I'll see towards the end of my holiday what the crowds are like. The attractions list is mostly kids rides for $40 right now. I believe most adult rides will come with Lionsgate Park (which may be a separate gate from this kids area with the mack spinner) The site lists Lionsgate park as opening in 2019 with rides/attractions for these films:

+ The Hunger Games
+ Now You See Me
+ Divergent
+ Saw
+ The Cabin in the Woods
+ Robin Hood
+ The Twilight Saga

^^ Odd detail I know but is this the first park with a Zamperla Disk'o coaster that has the regular disk'o 24 seat gondola instead of the 40 gondola or the skateboard gondola?

Glad to see new parks in Korea! We really want to go back, but it's been hard to justify the cost and time for a visit with so little new to us.
