    This kind of slipped under the radar but it seems the BBC will build a theme park on the Island of Hainan in China. Joining the 4 already under construction theme park projects on the extremely popular holiday destination.

    It sounds like the same kind of licensing deal that Six Flags has struck up in China and Dubai with another company paying to License the BBC name.
    It seems there will be 2 parks (although it could be one with 2 areas. The articles are a bit hard to parse) one themed to Top Gear and a second themed to Planet Earth
    The park(s) will be built somewhere in the Moon Bay region on the eastern side of the Island.
    More info on this as it appears I guess.

    This is absurd. And fab. I hope it gets built half as well as the concept art!

    Looking forward to the Chris Evans Rollercoaster - a really big launch, then downhill all the way...

    BBC Earth concept art just looks like Jurassic Park. This is such a weird thing but I'm intrigued and want to see more.

    Is there a Nigel Farage dark ride? The irony!

    Loving the look of that Vekoma Corkscrew with three cars plonked on it!
