LEGOLAND South Korea
Chuncheon, Gangwon Province
Merlin Entertainments Group
NEW PARK TO BE BUILT
2016 - New Park - (11/5/13) According to this video news report a new Legoland park is set to open in South Korea in 2016 as part of a new deal signed with Merlin Entertainment. The park will be built on Jungdo Island in the city of Chuncheon, Gangwon Province and will cost an estimated $470 million US dollars to build, with $94 million pitched in by Merlin itself. Construction is expected to begin before the end of the year.
With the announcement of a new Legoland in Korea, there was no mention of the once proposed Legoland park in Japan proposed for 2016 as well. I can only assume Legoland Japan is on hold at this time as a result.
