On March 20, a ceremony was held in the city of Shiyan in Hubei Province, China, to mark the beginning of construction of a new Fantawild park: Shiyan Amazing Chinese Culture Park. Guests present at the ceremony included Hu Yabo, Municipal Party Secretary of Shiyan; Huang Jianxiong, Mayor and Vice Party Secretary of Shiyan; and Chen Zuyao, Vice President of Fantawild Holdings Inc.
The new park is located in Chengguan Town in the Yunyang District of Shiyan. The total investment for the park, which covers an area of about 676,733 square meters (7,284,293 square feet), is RMB 4.65 billion (US$715 million). Upon opening, the park is expected to receive 3 million visitors per year and create over 500 new jobs.
The new park will be themed around Chinese philosophy. It presents Chinese history and culture using stories and artwork, while also exploring Shiyan’s local culture. Shiyan Amazing Chinese Culture Park boasts an array of immersive attractions which utilize Fantawild’s creativity and advanced technology. With nine indoor attractions, nearly 40 outdoor attractions, hundreds of landscape designs, multiple restaurants and numerous shops, this will be a worthy destination for tourism, dining, shopping and entertainment.
At the ceremony, Zuyao spoke of the smooth preparations Fantawild has made for the park since signing the contract, with support from local government bodies. The new park will be built and opened as quickly as possible, adhering to international standards, scientific management and safe construction practices. Fantawild’s goal is to add new highlights to the entertainment and tourism industry of Shiyan, make contributions to the development of Hubei Province, and promote rich Chinese culture.
