    List of Wanda parks

    Thanks for the update Michael. Wanda have announced so many parks I can't keep up with them all. I know Gutterflower created a great list of all of their parks previously, would it be possible to update this to include all of the new parks announced since then?

    Plans for another Wanda "shopping complex" have been announced. This one will be located in the city of Haikou on Hainan Island in China. The complex will "also boast a theme park, convention facilities, a bio-park and other tourist facilities and hotels"

    Budget: about $7.2 billion
    Opening: Late 2020

  3. There is no connection between Wanda funding Sony films and the ability to make attractions from that. Never seen any evidence of that in any release. Also, Wanda only does China film IP in their parks.

    Dalian Wanda Group Co., controlled by billionaire Wang Jianlin, has hired the former head of Hong Kong Disneyland to run its amusement parks, according to a person familiar with the matter.
    Andrew Kam will serve as vice president of the Chinese company’s Cultural Tourism Group

  5. Long term trip planning for 2020 or 2021 Asia trip is part China trip that would go Beijing, Xi'an, Chengdu, Chongqing, Yangtze River Cruise, Yichang to Changsha/Zhangjiajie, Huangshan/Yellow Mountains or on the Shanghai directly from Yichang.

    It seems Wanda is building parks near all major and future major High Speed Train Station towns. The line from Xi'an to Chengdu should be complete around this time as well.

  6. Hefei Wanda City is now open.



    The chairman of Dalian Wanda Group opened the doors Saturday on his company's $3.6 billion theme park in the city of Hefei, the capital of China's eastern Anhui Provence. The development is the second of a planned 15 mega-resorts the tycoon has vowed to build by 2020, as his conglomerate vies with Disney for dominance of China's rapidly emerging theme parks business.
    The new Hefei Wanda City spans some 365 acres and includes an outdoor theme park, indoor water park, shopping mall, cinema attraction, dozens of restaurants and bars and a cluster of luxury hotels. At the opening ceremony Saturday, Wang announced that Wanda would invest another $1.5 billion to build more indoor entertainment facilities at the park within two to three years.
    In addition to the world's tallest rollercoaster loop, highlights at Hefei Wanda City include themed lands based on Anhui's ancient architecture, Chinese acrobats, a streetside display of traditional crafts and a pyrotechnic stage show recreating the historic Battle of Feishui, a legendary episode well known to Chinese school kids.

  7. They can't get Spiderman, I think Disney bought the theme park rights to that when Marvel reached an agreement with Sony.

    The Chengdu park is still moving forwards. It is however quite a way out of the city in a different town that I believe is a bit of a holiday destination in China.
    They have also announced their own park in Chongqing which will be to the west of the main city.

    Both these parks are way in the future though. 2019 at the earliest from what I remember.

  9. Looks like Wanda's deal with Sony gains them IP rights for theme parks.
