ITEC’s Harbin Project to be Anchored by China’s First Ripley’s Attraction

 

ITEC Entertainment Corporation has announced that construction has begun on a major mixed-use and entertainment complex in Harbin, China. ITEC Entertainment is providing master planning and concept design services for Harbin Paradise Park and what will become the first Ripley’s Believe It or Not! attraction located in China. ITEC Entertainment’s services will include attraction identity and story treatments to be delivered and experienced throughout the attractions’ rides, exhibits, displays, branding and activities that extend into all interior and exterior environments.

Harbin Paradise Park will team the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! attraction with two other major themed attraction areas in the development to form a major local and visitor entertainment destination in Harbin. Rainforest Bay Aqua Park – a multi-story indoor water park with pools and caverns, cabanas and multiple slides, zip lines and elevated activity gazebos – will cater to entire families of wet adventure seekers. Aiming to draw shoppers after their Ripley’s and water park experience will be a commercial sector, with nearly a mile of storefronts inspired by world continents.

“ITEC Entertainment is grateful for the longstanding relationship we have had with the legendary Ripley Entertainment brand,” said ITEC President, Bill Coan. “That trust combined with the strength of our joint venture partnership with Shanghai Xian Dai/Arcplus Group will ensure a thrilling and rewarding guest experience.”

Rainforest Bay Aqua Park and the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! attraction areas are slated for a 2019 opening.
