Cartoon Network theme park coming to India
POSTED 11 Nov 2017 . BY Alice Davis
Plans for a Cartoon Network theme park have been announced for the city of Surat on the west coast of India.

The new destination will be part of the Amaazia development, which opened a waterpark in the first phase of development in January 2017.

Turner International India (Turner India), which owns the rights to the Cartoon Network intellectual properties, has teamed up with Indian real-estate developer Rajgreen Group to deliver the project in Gujarat state.

Announcing the partnership, Turner India South Asia managing director Siddharth Jain said: “India is a priority market for Turner and our partnership with Rajgreen Group will enable millions of Cartoon Network fans to interact and have fun with their favourite characters like never before.”

Like the waterpark, the theme park has been conceptualised and designed by the Sanderson Group, Australia, and will feature characters from popular programmes, including Ben 10, The Powerpuff Girls and Adventure Time. It is slated to open in 2019 and will feature more than 50 themed attractions and water slides, as well as live shows and meet-and-greets.

“Our audience today is well-travelled and exposed to global entertainment venues," said Rajgreen Group chair Sanjay Movaliya. "Our aim is to create a similar experience closer to home, via our association with a hugely popular global brand like Cartoon Network.”

Both Cartoon Network Amazone waterpark in Thailand and IMG Worlds of Adventure in Dubai have partnered with Turner to deliver the Cartoon Network world in an attractions format.
