    I was in Korea in 2007 when that Paramount project was announced. Though they left the business in the United States by 2006 someone was willing to pay the money for the Paramount names elsewhere. It's just like the casino business in the United States. Sands Casino no longer operates under that name in Las Vegas and Atlantic City but opened their first Sands location in years in Bethlehem, PA, outside of the Philadelphia and New York markets in recent years.

    All I saw for the Korea location was just fencing with signage. Still waiting to see if anything happens. Will Lotte World expand first before the Paramount Korea location ever opens?

    The Spanish company doing the Paramount park in Spain is looking to expand. They should buy Elitch Gardens. Mind Earser could be Top Gun,Half Pipe could be themed to Face off and Sidewinder themed to the movie Greese

    Cedar Fair would not buy these parks. Maybe Paramount Park Japan because it was already used for Expo 72 and is just getting themes slapped on the rides. But Paramount Movie Park Korea (if it ever opend) and Paramount Park Murica are projects that will included a hotel,casnio and buiness complex. I am surpirsed for Paramount Park Murica they are not using themes like Nick,Top Gun,Italian Job and Tomb Raider to the rides but they are using Star Treck
