FORREC Ltd., an entertainment design company that leads in the design of theme parks, water parks, retail and mixed-use developments, resorts, and visitor attractions globally, has provided master planning and design development for the new Wanda Nanchang Outdoor Theme Park which opens in Nanchang, China on May 28th.
The design for Wanda Nanchang Outdoor Theme Park was inspired by the freshwater lakes and mountainous topography of Nanchang as well the rich historical and cultural content of the JiangXi region of southern China. The theme park is built around a lake in rolling countryside.
Explaining the design challenges inherent to the project, Linda Hung, Senior Director, Theme Parks, FORREC Ltd. said, “Storytelling is a central aspect of this region and the culture is rich with material to draw from. We used some of Jiangxi’s favourite stories to create immersive experiences that take guests through five zones, celebrating the porcelain industry, ancient poetry, famous architecture, fairy folklore, life on the water and natural splendor.”
The 78-hectare theme park includes 32 rides, among which is the tallest, fastest and longest wooden roller coaster in China.
Gord Dorrett, President and CEO of FORREC Ltd., who will be attending the theme park’s Grand Opening said, “It’s our pleasure to be a part of another exciting Wanda Group project. This is an iconic brand in China and FORREC has been honoured to help develop several recent projects including Wanda Xishuangbanna Theme Park and Water Park in the region by the same name and also Wanda Movie Park in Wuhan, China.”
