    The area of Bishan District in Chongqing that was supposed to be "Chongqing Riverside Themed Town" has been renamed to "Yuquan Lake Digital Culture and Tourism Industrial City" (玉泉湖国家级数字娱乐产业园). Most of the land designated for the Six Flags theme parks is no longer designated as such, except for the waterpark land (probably because construction had already started on that).

    The Bishan government is soliciting planning and design proposals for this development.

    According to Guancha Syndicate, a Chinese news site, Six Flags Chongqing was eventually taken over by the Chongqing Municipal Government. Riverside Group had only provided operation management and the Six Flags brand. In addition, someone at Riverside Group admitted in an interview that the Chongqing project has indeed transferred part of its equity to State-Owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission (“SASAC”) of the Chongqing Municipal Government.

    First look at what was going to be Six Flags Adventure Park in Chongqing:











    The park is described by Six Flags as the following:

    For the more daring enthusiasts, Six Flags Adventure Park will be the ultimate in high adrenaline, action-packed thrills. From motocross bicycle races along rugged terrain, to whitewater rafting to zip lining or rock climbing hundreds of feet above the ground, guests will have the opportunity to reach beyond their comfort zone and safely push the boundaries of self-discovery in a beautiful, natural environment. Six Flags innovation will be on full display in the design of the various challenges and attractions throughout the park. Six Flags Adventure Park will be a thrilling new addition to the Six Flags Chongqing entertainment lineup.

    'The Paper', a Chinese news publication, today came out with an in-depth article about Six Flags in China including the history of the developments and the current status of the parks

    Here's a couple key points from the article:

    - Sunac is confirmed to have taken over the parks in Chongqing as well as the already confirmed parks in Zhejiang.
    - At least one unspecified Six Flags park in Chongqing (assumed to be the waterpark which has already begun slide installation) is scheduled to open in 2021.

    On April 8 waterslide installation inexplicably began on Six Flags Hurricane Harbor waterpark in Chongqing. It's unclear who is paying for this installation and what the plan is...

    Thanks. It looks like Six Flags will be taking a "one time" loss on the development in their 4th quarter of 2019.

    Any idea how much of an investment Six Flags has made thus far? Or is the capital investment all Riverside's and it's a royalty/franchise type arrangement?
