Wanda’s biggest indoor Theme Park in Nanjing, created by KCC Entertainment Design, opens its doors

It is the first of eight (!) parks designed by KCC Entertainment Design that will open for visitors in 2018.

After 2 years of intense design and construction, Wanda Nanjing Theme Park (China) opened for visitors with a majestic ceremony on the 1st of June. Hitting 260.000 visitors for the whole project on the first day, the launch was a tremendous success.

The indoor Theme Park is embedded in a new mixed-use development (Shopping mall, Indoor Theme Park, Hotel, Residential housing and a food court) and has an incredible footprint of 34.000sqm which makes it one of the China’s biggest indoor theme parks and the biggest of the Wanda group.
The more then 22 attractions, catering to all members of the family, make the park the center of the leisure experience (retailtainment) and ensures the mall is a true family destination.

“Upon entering the visitor is immediately blown away by a never seen before combination of two thrill rides within a structure referencing a weaving machine (Nanjing has a great textile history)” says CEO Yannick Maes.

This is only the start of a great family fun time in the park where the mix of rides are inspired by the rich Nanjing culture and history:

“Inside the Nanjing Porcelain Pagoda a thrilling droptower launches you in the air at great speed exactly like the crazy scientist Wan Hu who launched himself into space by attaching fireworks to his chair (Chinese Legend).
Or explore at high speed the hull of one of Zheng He’s (chinese explorer & protector of Nanjing) giant ships with a speeding motocoaster.

Our creative team felt like being back at school studying Nanjing’s history and culture. However, the more we learned the better we could link the stories, legends and cultural elements with the rides to create a completely new and fun experience.”

According to the Wanda Group’s management this is one of the best entertainment designs they have seen become reality!

7 more unique and wonderful entertainment worlds designed by KCC Entertainment Design will open doors this year (2 more in China and 5 in the middle east) and meanwhile we are continuously designing and realizing more entertainment experiences worldwide.
