    Here's the official site for Wanda Xishuangbanna International Resort: http://www.xsbnholiday.com/
    ts mostly in Chinese but it is possible to navigate (I HATE sites which play music)

    Took me a little while to dig out the actual park but if you can click through to the main page with a menu along the bottom its the third from the right.

    Areas appear to be
    Butterfly Kingdom
    Jungle Adventure
    Tea Horse Road
    Fisherman's Wharf
    and a water park.

    I've taken screens of the concept art for people who can't be bothered to navigate a Chinese site.

    Here's the concept art for the Intamin Water Coaster


    The flyer appears here


    Jungle area.


    Butterflies


    Entrance

    (1/16/14) Back in November it was announced at IAAPA that Great Coasters International would build “The Viper”, their biggest wooded roller coaster ever at the Wanda (Nanchang) Culture Tourism City to open in 2015. (Stats: 50 meter (164 ft) tall lift hill and 1,500 meters (4921 ft) of track).

    Earlier this month it was reported that the Wanda Group had purchased a new B&M Flyer Coaster for Xishuangbanna International Resort project.

    Today I found an interesting bit of news on the Dynamic Attractions website that confirms that they are now in the midsts of building Dynamic’s very first “Generation II Flying Theaters” attraction for Wanda as well.

    Wanda’s Xishuangbanna International Resort seems to be getting a B&M flyer. Looks like Manta meets Superman.

  5. "targeting Disney"... we'll see...

    Wang, chairman of real estate developer Dalian Wanda Group, who was ranked by Forbes as the richest person in China in 2013, has become more ambitious in his plans for the company since late last year.

    One of the company's latest projects is a theme park in Hefei in eastern China's Anhui province, construction for which began last year.

    "I'm targeting Disney. I never have blind faith in foreigners. I will prove that a tourism project built by the Chinese can compete with the so-called famous brands from the United States," Wang said.

  6. These "theme parks" are going to be terrible!

  7. When reading this I don't develop good feelings about these Wanda theme parks. They suffer from delusions of grandeur and have no theme park experience.

  8. Wanda billionaire chairman Wang Jianlin:

    Great article published on the Hollywood Reporter:
    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/chinas-wanda-plans-theme-park-636431

    Days after announcing the world's largest movie studio development, company chairman Wang Jianlin touts another project, saying it "will surpass Disney in both revenue and number of visitors."
    The project, dubbed Wuxi Wanda City, will span 296 acres around a small lake. It will include an outdoor amusement park, a “film city” with 3D cinemas, an indoor children’s theme park, an “extreme sports hall,” seven resort hotels, a commercial center with over 200 retail shops, and a “bar street” of at least 20 venues.

    “Wuxi Wanda City will have richer content than Disney,” Wang was quoted as saying. "[We] expect to attract 20 million tourists a year. Wanda has confidence that [our tourism project] will surpass Disney in both revenue and number of visitors.”
    Wanda says Wuxi Wanda City will be up and running by 2016.

  10. This is a bit confusing. Are they working on one theme park, or on several ones. Is this Wuhan movie theme park the one which is supposedly going to compete or surpass Hong Kong Disneyland? What is under construction today, and what is just talk?
