    Right first off lets clear up a bit of confusion here. South Korea is due to get 2 seperate Robot Land Parks. One in Incheon near Seoul in the northern part of South Korea (no not North Korea :p ) and one nearer Busan in the south of South Korea.

    We had a thread about the Robot Land announcement in the News & Rumours forum but it got a little confused between the two as it wasn't clear there actually where two back then.

    Official Sites For Both
    Gyeongnam Robot Land (South) - http://gnrobot.or.kr/
    Incheon Robot Land (North) - http://www.robotland.or.kr/

    Now thats cleared up this post is about the Southern Robot Land called Gyeongnam Robot Land which appears to be much further along than its northern cousin and we know the ride lineup for. If the Incheon park ever gets moving then I'll create a thread for that but as of now it seems to be treading water.

    The Gyeongnam park however is due to open in April 2019 and construction is well underway.

    Coaster Lineup
    Rapid Train - Zamperla Thunderbolt (Note: at time of writing this ride is misplaced in Incheon on the RCDB although its in the queue for Duane to fix)
    Forest Trains - Unknown Junior Coaster

    It's weird how after South Korea basically stagnated for 10 years after T-Express, there's suddenly a bunch of parks getting built, and all in the south of the country.

    I'm personally waiting until that place on Jeju Island gets their expansion done, but with that, this, added B&M in Gyeongju and a new Lotte World park, south South Korea will have a decent little cluster soon.

    Sorry to bump the thread, but I thought that I would confirm that the Zamperla Thunderbolt is a mirror-image of the Layout 01 version (a mirror image of Thunderbolt and Rollin' Thunder):-

    Kind of hard to tell but it does appear some light yellow track may well be on site for the Thunderbolt now.
