Palace of Chu uses live performance and virtual reality (VR), with one visitor describing it as “amazing” and “impressive”.

Qu Yuan, an immersive holographic theatre, combines live performance with holographic projection technology to tell the story of Qu Yuan.

“I came here with my family,” said another guest. “We were all deeply impressed by this show. The show is like edutainment. It teaches children about traditional Chinese culture and cultivates their interest in historical figures.”

Attractions for children include Boonie Bears Theater, the Tune Tour, and Pine Tree Rocket, while thrill rides include the Grand Showman, Galaxy Splash, and the Legend of King Yu.

Prior to that, Jiayuguan Fantawild Silk Road Dreamland opened in Gansu, with a focus on the Silk Road and the Great Wall.
