    Officials from Shanghai Chongming District Government joined representatives from the leading toy and game company Hasbro and Max-Matching Entertainments Co., Ltd for a launch ceremony on April 24 to announce the construction of world's largest stand-alone PEPPA PIG outdoor theme park in Asia. With an investment of over 2.4 billion Chinese Yuan (331 million US Dollars), Max-Matching Entertainments has signed on as its strategic long-term local partner.

    Slated to open in 2027, it will become Hasbro's first PEPPA PIG outdoor theme park in Asia. The mega-theme park will cover approximately 48 acres in China's third largest island Changxing Island in Chongming, Shanghai, which is 91km north, or an hour and a half drive from Shanghai city center.

    Changxing Island is a key island for sight-seeing and tourism. The PEPPA PIG outdoor theme park will be its first global IP themed entertainment offering. Cai Xiaofei, Deputy Director at Changxing Island Administrative Committee said: "The PEPPA PIG outdoor theme park will further enhance Shanghai as a global tourism destination and propel its economy. The greater footfall will lead to more exposure for Changxing island, Chongming, Shanghai and benefit overall infrastructure and connectivity. We believe this theme park can serve as a flagship attraction for the island, helping to establish its own unique brand identity and will have a positive long-term effect to promote the island's reputation. We are excited to witness PEPPA PIG Outdoor Theme Park landing in Changxing Island. This project will further boost the construction of Changxing Island as a unique and key island for sight-seeing and tourism."

    The project will feature PEPPA PIG, which has gained strong momentum in China since it first aired in the region in 2015 with over 10 billion views and wide range of products available across major Chinese retailers.

    "Construction of the PEPPA PIG outdoor theme park in Changxing Island in Chongming marks a significant milestone for Hasbro in China and a natural evolution for the PEPPA PIG brand, reflecting the scale of opportunity in the country and our commitment to developing our business with the support of strategic licensing partner Max-Matching Entertainments in China. We will continue to work closely together to develop more projects in China, including bringing PEPPA PIG outdoor theme parks and memorable live experiences to more cities for Chinese children and families to enjoy," said Matt Proulx, Senior Vice President, Global Experiences, Partnerships and Music at Hasbro.

    Speaking at the event, Owen Zhao, President of Max-Matching Entertainments, shared Max-Matching Entertainments is honoured to work with Hasbro in bringing this PEPPA PIG outdoor theme park project to China, and is committed to bringing more quality attractions to visitors in China and across Asia. He revealed that the new PEPPA PIG theme park will boast innovative features, new themed areas, rides, an immersive show, and a themed hotel specifically designed for the China market, especially with its three-generation family in mind. Owen Zhao also added the attraction will be a "must-see" and "must-experience" for millions of families looking to immerse themselves in the magic of Peppa's expansive world. NEE NELLIE L, CEO of the investment company for the theme park, Shanghai Peiqi Co., Ltd. has also expressed solid confidence on the project: "With the empowerment of all the parties, Shanghai PEPPA PIG outdoor theme park is poised to be another landmark for Shanghai. We look forward to meeting our guests in 2027!"

    RWS 2.0 which includes SNW will take a lot before details are released - the plan has USS taking over some of the golf course and the rest of the golf course being used for other RWS development. SNW will move forward; But the scale will depend on RWS2.0 approvals.

    I'll be there this weekend to enjoy the new land. The thing to remember for anything HKDL - Land size is so small and they can't just 'get more land'. Also need to remember it is reclaimed land so anything that is super heavy (like the castle) still sinks a little after construction.

    The Carousel looks more like the UBR Lanterns of Legendary Legends in Kung Foo Panda.

    They still need to take out all the Fox theming on the rides and find/create new themes.

    Mostly I think they are waiting for new concept/design before bringing people back to finish most works. So I guess it's a minimal crew until then.

    I heard they were working on the structural support. So a lot of this wont be seen yet as it's internal in the current structure.

    For now, no. The area looks like it will be land for future development.

    My guess is it will go forward with Disney allowing Genting to franchise it - depending on the quality of the finished park and rides. Or the project will lose its IP.

    Speculation is that they will open once 80% of rides are ready. Based on what you can see from the construction pictures, it could be by the end of 2018 or 2019.

    Jeju Shinhwa World

    It looks like Jeju Landing Development that purchased the land previously for Resort World Jeju has renamed the project.

    Project name now seems to be: Jeju Shinhwa World
