Dreamworld Building Kung Fu Panda's Land of Awesomeness

Australia's Dreamworld has announced an expansion to their DreamWorks Experience themed area with the addition of Kung Fu Panda: Land of Awesomeness.  The area actually served as a meet and greet up until now, but will be fully expanded into a mini-land in the DreamWorks area, which already contains Madagascar and Shrek themed attractions.

The centerpiece of the land appears to be a new Zamperla Air Race, a ride which seems to be taking off quite a bit in 2013.  The park hasn't confirmed it yet, but did share a photo of a ride similar to theirs under construction, which gives it away a bit.

Dreamworld is also home to a fairly large Wiggles World, which will also be receiving a new ride themed to Captain Feathersword.  They're not saying much more at this point, other than it is a boating adventure. 

Finally for those of you who may be obsessed with the Australian version of Big Brother, the house the show is filmed in is on Dreamworld property and will now be able to be toured by visitors.  With filming completed park guests can try to relive some of the show's moments while checking out the house.
