Although they won’t be visible from space, Dynamic Attractions’ master planning, theming, and attractions will be visible at Space Park.
Altair Space Technology has signed a deal to have Dynamic Attractions design, develop, co-own and operate a theme park called Space Park in Hangzhou, one of China’s leading technology and tourist locations.
“This leverages our planning, theming, and cutting-edge engineering expertise, ” states Guy Nelson, CEO of Empire Industries, which owns Dynamic Attractions. “We’re very active in Asia and thrilled by the strategic cooperation agreement.”
Dynamic Attractions will provide six attractions, including three of its proprietary iconic attractions. In addition the company will develop three new advanced technology attractions using emerging technologies such as virtual reality and augmented reality to create three more unique immersive, thrilling attractions especially for Space Park.
Furthermore, Dynamic Attractions will also be providing theming, master planning, and theme park operation.

Altair will bring its considerable experience with Chinese business, including obtaining funding and coordinating the relationship between Space Park with the local government.
“Space Park will highlight space technology and exploration, ” stated Dr. William Zhou, the Chairman of Altair (Shanghai) Space Technology and Hyde Capital Group.
“Altair has a relationship with the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation and the China Space Museum, ” adds Zhou. “This relationship ensures Space Park will supplement science education and stimulate further space innovation amongst Chinese youth by providing space-based attractions and unique displays such as Chinese spaceships and rockets on a rotational basis from the Chinese Space Museum in Beijing, ”
Dynamic Attractions has a connection with space too. Its sister company, Dynamic Structures, has been involved with over half of the world’s major telescopes and is currently designing the ground-breaking Thirty Meter Telescope. Nelson is also the Co-Chair of the Coalition for Canadian Astronomy.
