Chongqing, China -
There is a third wheel to the theme park giant in China. Disney, the company behind the Shanghai Disneyland, is the first giant. The second is Dalian Wanda which plans to build more theme parks across China. On Wednesday, a third theme park giant was introduced when Six Flags Entertainment Group revealed plans to construct the Chongqing Riverside-Six Flags Theme Park worth $4.48 billion, or 30 billion yuan.
According to China Daily, it would be the first international theme park in the western part of China. John Duffey, president and CEO of Six Flags Entertainment, said the company chose Chongqing to build the theme park because of the city’s significant population, growing middle class, increasing disposable income and limited theme park presence.
