Are we sure this isn't a money laundering scheme? Cuz I think this is a money laundering scheme.
No i don't think we have ever been sure.
It was even suggested to me by a ride broker that this was a money laundering scheme.
What are you insinauting?
They're not insinuating anything, they're literally suggesting that this could be a money laundering scheme, to which I agree?
It could just be like every other theme park in the world? Why would it be a money laundering scheme?
Massive amounts of cash dumped into a park with no website or active social media which could be open and receiving paying guests but isn't. This doesn't seem a bit strange to you?
Yeah there's something very strange about this place, from the budget-level marketing videos to the ridiculous amount of attractions with seemingly no thought to what a park would need (so many rides that are basically the same thing) and the radio silence for so long on when it's going to open.
Would be a nice way for some government employees (it is government owned isn't it?) to spend a fortune to their 'friends in the industry' to get a park built, then write it off on insurance if it fails somehow.
Wtf I had no idea of the apparent scale of this park! Bad vibes for sure
Yeah, it's amazing isn't it?!
Bahaha this is jokes... good one Turkey.
Very exciting indeed to see 17 credits at the park, even if they aren't exactly the best of credits! This park kind of reminds me of a bad rip-off of Cedar Point or SFMM.
Well for those of you wondering why this park isnt open yet.
"Ankapark was the idea of the former mayor of Ankara, Melih Gökçek. Melih became the subject of a corruption investigation related to how public funds were used, including funding for Ankapark. Melih Gökçek was removed from office and last known to be under a criminal investigation. Construction at Ankapark was halted in 2017 as a result. Ankara's new mayor is not in favor of the park, but acknowledges considerable investment has been made and has suggested the future to be determined by a referendum. Little information is available to further this story, but it appears as recent as May 2018, the park's lease has been granted. This suggests the park will remain, but the opening will no doubt be hindered by a lot of political red tape."
That is from the RCDB. There seems to be stuff going on right now but someone who can speak Turkish or Legal stuff might be able to make head or tail of this.
At least the Turks can get the majority of a park built. Meanwhile in Kent...
Wait, so there really was something fishy about this project? Who could have seen that coming?!?
London Resort is set to open in 2023!
Matt N set for disappointment in 2023
It's really not going to open though, is it.
I still have faith! The team behind it seem like a dedicated bunch!
Anyway, back on to Ankapark. I really hope that someone acquires and opens the park soon. The scale of it looks obscene; 17 roller coasters is quite the number for a new theme park!
Yeah they really did go for quantity not quality though - when the star attraction out of 17 coasters is a Colossus clone (with minor updates) you know the bar is low.
I suppose. For anyone who's ridden, are the Colossus clones any less rough than the original Colossus?
