The event will celebrate a new chapter of theme park development in China for both Wanda and WhiteWater. The first park, Xishuangbanna International Resort, will feature an assortment of WhiteWater waterslides as well as a highly themed interactive play structure.

Xishuangbanna International Resort Theme Park welcomes guests to celebrate the Dai culture in a lush theme park bursting with large green spaces and floral accents. Throughout the 60 hectares of theme park, WhiteWater has integrated the tropical jungle theme into each waterpark element, creating a garden of bright flower-like waterslides. The fiberglass is coloured with bright yellows, pinks and blues and supported by vibrant green steel that emulates a flower’s stalk.

A centerpiece of adventure, this unique AquaPlay structure invites guests to play in a lavish garden of beautiful flowers and bright waterslides.
