    Paramount has been in talks with Wanda Group but whether it's for a future Paramount Park in China is not yet confirmed.

    From an insider perspective I can tell for sure that Wanda will eventually fail with its theme park plans. They have no concept and no strategy, they just want to be 'bigger'. It won't work.

    More news on the potential Europe Wanda development.








    the name announced for this theme park "Europa City" may indicate that Europa Corp director and producer Luc Besson might be part of the project, specially considering that the supposed location of the theme park would be at 10km north of Paris, more or less where Luc Besson already have his movie studios. This is a point which remain to be confirmed, though.

    An interesting rumour this morning about Wanda potentially moving into Europe.

    The development, being built by property company Immochan, will include a theme park, shopping center, water and snow parks, sports fields, performance spaces and hotels, according to the site.
    Wang’s film, tourism and sports operations all fall under Wanda’s fast-growing Cultural Industry Group, which saw revenue climb 46 percent last year and is forecast to climb 30 percent in 2016.

    Second one from VHCoasters is Wanda City Hefei.
    Again the quality of pictures on the main page is pretty low but it covers a lot of ground and gives a good idea of what to expect from the park.

    If you click through to each photo and click through again you get much higher resolution images.

    These images came from the following news site http://365jia.cn/ however I cannot find the source article, mainly due to Google's (and mine) limited translation skills. If anyone can find the original article it would be good to see if there were any more images.

    This park is due to open around September/October this year.

    There have been two great updates on Wanda Theme Parks from VHCoasters this week. Whilst obviously they are mainly concerned with the coasters being installed and the photo's aren't amazing quality you can see how construction and themeing is coming along.

    First one is Wanda City Nanchang.




    The park also has a massive Intamin hyper and an interesting custom SLC. The park is due to open later this year but clearly still needs a lot of work done on it.

    It would seem being a majority shareholder was not enough for Wanda. They have bought Legendary Entertainment outright for $3.5 billion (USD). Looks like they will be using those IP licenses and making more "monster" films to add to their parks in the future.

    The deal announced Tuesday in Beijing significantly expands Wanda’s presence in the global entertainment business, as it now owns one of the largest independent movie companies in Hollywood.
    some of its films, including “Godzilla” and “Pacific Rim,” have done particularly well in China, and the company is focused more on such monster movies going forward.

    Wanda Group, as they are currently chasing a majority share of Legendary Entertainment, is rumored to be planning a Jurassic theme park on the Gold Coast.
    The Wanda group has invested significantly on the Gold Coast, launching direct flights to Wuhan last year and financing the $970 million Jewel project in Surfers Paradise.

    Wanda Group general manager Xie Hong last year exclusively revealed plans to the Bulletin to build a new theme park on the Gold Coast.
