Premier Rides to Design One-of-a-Kind Attraction for Wanda Group

Baltimore, MD, USA The Wanda Group has awarded Premier Rides a major contract to design and build one of the most cutting-edge attractions ever to be introduced to the theme park industry.  The first-of-its-kind attraction will set a new standard for technical innovation and will reinforce Wanda’s stated goal to be the leader in China’s themed entertainment industry.  The project will represent the most significant investment to date by Wanda on a single attraction and will introduce stunning new technologies that are sure to impress Wanda’s millions of fans.

Jim Seay, President of Premier Rides commented on the award stating “Premier Rides is incredibly respectful of Wanda’s commitment to build the best, world-class attractions and world-class theme parks throughout China and beyond.  Their dedication to providing high-end thrilling immersive experiences is very impressive and we are honored to be a part of their vision for success.  The Wanda team is very focused and works hard to ensure the best possible product.  Premier has great synergy with Wanda.”
