Active entertainment manufacturer Walltopia completed a formerly delayed project for Evergrande which represents an Adventure Hub for Ocean Flower Island. Spanning 2,200 square meters (23,700 square feet) and a height of 16 meters (52.5 feet), it features ocean-themed ropes courses, fun walls, artificial cave, the Rollglider, adventure trail, elevated kids’ playgrounds and more.
Ocean Flower Island is an artificial archipelago located off the north coast of Danzhou, Hainan, China, west of the Yangpu Peninsula. The project, built by the Evergrande Group, consists of three independent islets with a total area of 381 hectares (940 acres). The investment is 160 billion RMB (US$24 billion).
The Evergrande Group is the second-largest construction company in China with over 1,300 projects in more than 280 Chinese cities. Its property management department is involved in nearly 2,800 projects in more than 310 cities across the country. The group has seven divisions covering a wide range of businesses, including electric cars, healthcare, consumer products, video and television productions, and a theme park.
Ocean Flower Island is comprised of a 127,000-square-meter (1,370,000-square-feet) marine world with a water park, 23 recreation projects, 28 characteristic museums, 40 kilometers (25 miles) of coastline, 58 hotels, 6 commercial streets, 7 folklore performance squares, 8 themed food streets, an amphitheater, an arboretum, a central glass atrium, convention facilities, gardens, an ice skating rink, a shopping mall, luxury residential housing, a Central Park, a music hall, an opera house, sports fields, a tourist tower, and a world fairyland.
The Walltopia Adventure Hub is part of the Central Park.
“Ocean Flower Adventure Hub is an ambitious complex attraction comprised of interconnected themed facilities,” said Cveta Mihaylova, Sales & Business Development at Walltopia China. “When you enter, the first thing you see are the themed sea animal elements, and you find yourself in the low-level kids’ area. As you climb higher, you discover more and more activities for the different age groups. The adult and teen zones form a spiral of activities inspired by the shape of the beautiful Muricid shells found around the coastlines of Hainan.”
“We have now collaborated with the Evergrande team for almost six years,” said Valya Krasteva, Sales & Business Development at Walltopia China. “During this process, we worked with exceptional professionals in design, engineering, operation, and project management. The Design and Engineering stage took approximately six months to finalize. However, the execution phase, consisting of production, shipment, and assembly, was delayed due to COVID-19 and what would usually take six months took almost a year to complete.
“Seeing it open today, we are very proud of our work, and we are happy that Evergrande chose Walltopia to design and build an attraction facility of this size. The trending active entertainment activities combined in a single-themed structure with a storyline, are a perfect example of what we can do. No other company in our industry today can create such complex and monumental projects.”
