A new casino on the island of Tinian in the Northern Marianas has had a major boost to its plans as the Alter City Group has hiked the planned number of rooms from 2,500 to 6,000.

The complex will also include global theme parks and a skybridge that will link the island to Saipan.

The Macau-based investor added that from 200,000 square meters, it is now looking to develop on 700,000 square meters of land it has leased from the government.

Alter City says aside from the 6,000 hotel rooms, villas, and serviced apartments, the master plan will include the construction of global theme parks such as LegoLand, Hello Kitty Land, a 21st Century Fox centre, and a skybridge connecting Tinian to other islands via an aero bus.

The construction of the hotel resort in Puntan Diablo is planned to be completed in 12 years.
