Kings Island reports that its $27 million Camp Cedar luxury camp resort is nearing completion, on track for a planned June opening. The resort is projected to welcome more than 200,000 guests a year. Check out some drone video from the construction site, above.

Junior Training Camp at Ferrari World Abu Dhabi

Ferrari World Abu Dhabi is reopening two of its family play areas, Junior Training Camp (above) and Nello's Adventureland that had been closed due to Covid restrictions.

Finally, Moscow's Dream Island has opened its Hotel Transylvania dark ride. The trackless ride features more than four dozen animatronics across 10 scenes. You can get a feel for it in the park's teaser video above. And this is as good an excuse as any to bring back our walking tour of the park from its opening in March 2020.
