I was just chatting to a friend in Korea, and they linked me to this site:

http://gizmodo.com/5469516/a-first-look-at-robot-land-disneyland-for-terminators

About a third of the funding ($230 million out of a $600 million budget) has been secured already for Robot Land, to be built in the Incheon area, which is the same general area as the Universal and Paramount parks that are being built.

A few pictures from the above website, showing a huge coaster with a tunnel under the sea!:







There's also an official website up and running:

http://www.robotland.or.kr/eng/index.php

Other attractions will include some sort of Robo Arm attraction, called "Dances With Robots," a log flume and a Gyro Drop tower (Yay!!!)

The centrepiece will be a **** ing massive robot statue, standing at 364 feet. To put that in perspective, The Statue of Liberty is 305 feet tall, including the pedestal.



It's all looking very exciting, if it actually happens of course.

This looks like Futuroscope but in South Korea and based more around robots other than anything futuristic. The dances with robots looks like a complete replica of what Futuroscope has too.

Cool.

^That's exactly what I was thinking! The architecture of the buildings appears to be as important as any of the rides.

Nah, these are going to be chosen from the winners of the BBC's latest dance show ;)
