    HKDL gets new castle, frozen land and marvel land.

    New HD closeups of the projection booths and the back of the castle (!) were just released: (this website isn't letting me quote the source so just enjoy the pictures for now) I'm not sure when/how these photos were taken but I'm not complaining...

    I'm getting strong Star Wars First Order vibes from the second pic

    If they had painted the top main roof blue as well then the whole look might be more cohesive 😕

    I honestly would have liked it a lot better if they had stuck to the colour scheme in this concept art: a lot of dark blues, golds and copper greens. Looks a lot more realistic and majestic.

    Well at least we know that the towers are all easily replaceable since they are prefabricated modules So should they ever decide to harmonise the jumbled mess with actual fitting Gothic/Bavarian towers and spires (though chances of this happening is near zero) we know that it's possible 😂🤷‍♂️...

    Don't think the castle is going to be finished by this month... I have a slight suspicion that it's a government request to avoid competition with Ocean Park (letting the financially weaker park regain its footing first)

    Yes!!! I was afraid that the red-blue colour scheme and jumbled towers would end up looking like a huge mess, but this is one of those rare cases where the actual thing is miles better than the concept art!!!

    Meanwhile, the castle painting seems to be going along nicely!

    Perhaps unrelated but I find this statement quite xenophobic and racist. Not all mainlanders are unhygienic; overgeneralising is not what we need in this current world climate.

    I guess I'm still in shock over how weird the colour combination and architectural features in this castle are when we have others like SBC (not Paris), CC and ESC that are still deeply rooted in existing European features and schemes and generally go for a simpler/more realistic colour palette.

    I was trying to find examples of actual buildings with the weird light blue/copper red colour scheme that the new castle has when I came across pictures of Bojnice Castle in Slovakia; so far it's the only chateau/castle structure I can find with similar rooftop colours. I wonder if this is where...

    I spoke with a theme painting contractor working on the castle and Arendelle last year, and he told me that his contract will be up specifically after the construction of Frozen Ever After, aka 1.5 years later.

    The model for the castle just debuted for the first time in Hong Kong at the Construction Innovation Expo! A lot of really cool up-close pics as well as construction /3D modelling diagrams from Hong Kong Main Street Gazette: https://hkmsg.blogspot.com/2019/12/blog-post_20.html#more For those...
