Theme park design
An Asean theme park in China MANILA, Philippines — In this “Green City” capital of Guanxi province in China, a familiar structure is being built with a bas relief of a coconut tree and an infant. Here in Nanning, the soon-to-open Fantawild theme park showcases landmarks of the countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). The Philippines is represented by the Santo Tomas de Villanueva Parish Church, also known as the Miag-ao church in Iloilo. A dome theater in the style of Angkor Wat that will show visitors videos of the renowned ruins, a water rafting attraction that will feature the water villages of Brunei and another theater that will allow visitors to go on a virtual trip to ancient Burma are among the major attractions in this theme park that is set to open next month.

MANILA, Philippines — The theme park, Westworld, is back — and is officially open to perhaps tie up some loose ends of (personal) narratives left by the maiden season. From a viewer’s perspective, these stories are intertwined with the history and nature of the place (designed and run by Delos Destinations). Fans, who, in a way, are “returning guests” or “newcomers” themselves, know that the first season’s conclusion saw the takeover (or free rein) of the host-robots and the death of amusement runners. “Chaos Takes Control,” the show’s tagline-teaser, speaks volume of the Westworld’s future. Based on the pilot episode of Westworld season two, which airs Mondays at 9 a.m. on HBO, one can say that some continuity (connection between past and present) and another compelling drama have been established.

But most locals readily divulge that fantasy fulfilment has little to do with the real life of urban Orlando. From the downtown region heading north to well-to-do Winter Park, the city is a checkerboard of intriguing neighbourhoods filled with historic bungalows, interesting galleries and cafés catering to the creative class. Nature is also a central attraction in the lake-filled city and suburbs that include warm springs preserves and parks with live oak stands. The glass-walled Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, opened in 2014, has given downtown a cultural bump, and homegrown endeavours include a new orchestra devoted to modern classics and unstarched performances. FRIDAY 3 p.m., … [Read more...] about Discover in 36 hours that there’s more to Orlando than Mickey Mouse and theme park rides
