I long for this park to finally be open. It has been much too long.

Interesting article about Ankapark which is hopefully due to open in March 2019:

https://www.dailysabah.com/life/2019/01 ... sh-capital

The key quote to take from this is...:

Ankapark features 2,117 rides including 28 huge rides.


All i can say is Jesus, that's quite a lot.

2117 RIDES?
I wonder how many "unique" rides the park will offer (For example just 1 swinging pendulum instead of 2 or 3)
GCI = <3

Ankapark might end up like my RCT3 park when I run out of actually good ride ideas to build and resort to doing everything in the selection list.

I do feel it's a typo.
I guess they mean 217 rides, which seems like a reasonable number if you'd count all the rides, shops, shows, exhibits, restaurants, playground equipment.

I've seen parks do this before, great way to boost up numbers.
Coastercount: 1174 (I've seen the world and it's horrid contraptions... @.@)
- Wood: 135
- Steel: 1039

2117 rides = every structure, every game stand, every ride support, every ride, every piece used to build the structures, every playground piece of equipment, every restaurant, every shop

Good news, Ankapark will finally open on March 20th. But i will not be called Ankapark. It will actually be called Wonderland Eurasia:
