    Wanda will be a major force in the Chinese industry for years. I fail to see how any Wanda park is a Disney rip off at all. All 3 that have opened so far are incredibly diverse with a very good standard of ride.

    The Wanda Movie Park in Wuhan is certainly not representative of their theme park aspirations and Xishuangbanna, Hefei and Nanchang are all excellent parks. The CO may be full of hot air about Disney and Universal but Wanda is here to stay.

    Wanda, with its Disney and Universal rip-off theme parks, will have no future in the industry.

    Wuhan movie park already closed. No visitors.

    Now, it looks like Jianlin’s Dalian Wanda Group may have some crow to eat. Wanda said this week that its indoor movie theme park in the central Chinese city of Wuhan — which it opened in late 2014 with great fanfare — has been closed for “upgrades and renovations.”

    In a brief statement, the company said the facility was closing as of July 31. No reopening date was given.
    When the theme park opened, the company said it expected 3 million visitors in the first year. But the Chutian Metropolis Daily, a local newspaper, quoted a former Wanda employee as saying it was only attracting about 200 people per day. Four hundred people came on Sunday, the paper said.

    Update on construction progress for Wanda City Hefei.

    With only little more than a month until opening day Wanda City in Hefei, China has been testing its rides and applying the finishing touches to the park.

    Viacom may be selling its Paramount Pictures stake to Dailan Wanda Group. I wonder what affect that would have on the plans for Paramount-branded theme parks…

    China’s Dalian Wanda Group Co. is in talks with Viacom about buying 49% of the studio, according to people familiar with the discussions.

Disney would hate him after all his public attacks on them for sure.

    Could a Disney Theme Park Be Coming to Australia?
    According to rumors, China’s richest man and chairman of Wanda group, Wang Jianlin, is in talks with the Queensland State Government about the possibility of opening a new theme park and some are speculating it’s a Disney one. The potential location would be in Coomera, Queensland, near many of the other continent’s major attractions.

    Here are photos of Nanchang Wanda Ocean Park (also known as Nanchang Wanda Ocean Paradise) which is part of the Wanda Nanchang Theme Park "area":






    The aquarium is home to bottlenose dolphins, sea lions, whale sharks, and more
