    HKDL Expansion: Grizzly Trail

    Plans for HKDL expansions have been seen and its not yet the POTC we were waiting for. HKDL's Frontierland (which name is Grizzly Something) will be very reminiscent of movies like White Fangs and Jack London's writings. the main attraction will be a train ride around a white mountain (think a smaller EE) with backwards sections. The area will be surrounded by shops and restaurants (saloon), and a waterplay playgrounds (yet another one!). I don't know if the project has been greenlit but the plans are officials

    Thanks for the update, Kinoo! La Rouquine mentioned that one of the working titles of the area is "Grizzly Peak", so we may see a new version of the California Adventure attraction.

    It's great to see these plans taking shape!

    Just us the source of that information Kinoo. I do not believe much of that until I see it on an official Disney release.

    Re: HKDL Expansion: Grizzly Trail

    The information comes from a very reliable and well-connected Cast Member at DLRP (who occasionally posts on these boards). He has provided inside scoops on everything from Toon Studio to Toy Story Mania, so I trust his word on this. He saw the plans backstage and confirms they are up-to-date, although, as with any Disney project, the details aren't fixed until the thing is built. What does seem certain is that when Frontierland finally appears in Hong Kong, it will be a far more rugged, wooded, mountainous kind of a place than we're familiar with.

    Ugh. I thought they wanted to shy away from DCA, not clone it into an already struggling theme park.

    Yeah, so a more north-woods approach. I like it! At least it's different, and will blend with the lush Adventureland. Plus, lots of trees, lots of shade! Bear Country at Disneyland used to be themed that way, and Critter Country is somewhat, but I'm sure this HKDL expansion would take it beyond just a few rustic log buildings...

    Sounds interesting but I fear most of it will be lost in the end to cost cutting and it will just be another regular Frontierland.

    I wonder where they're gonna put it though.

    i wouldn't call it frontierland though. several ideas being considered are mostly expansions to the adventureland theme lots of jungle and forest themed ideas to fit the area already built

    Re: HKDL Expansion: Grizzly Trail

    HK government and HKDL are still talking about a plan of 8 billion contribution.
    Rumors say that the talk should end in September, though some problems may carry the deadline foward to December.
    Anyway, the 08/09 Plan will come out before such plan being settle down. The company cannot wait anymore.
    I think for a company with future sight, they will mainly handle that temporary site

    I was wondering if there had been any movement on this rumor or firmer details - name, time frame, etc.
