The Dalian Wanda group has launched its latest theme park project – a US$1bn (€839m, £659m) movie park in the Chinese city of Wuhan.

Designed by Stufish Entertainment Architects and located at either end of Wuhan’s cultural district – an US$8bn (€6.7bn, £5.3bn) development project in the city – the indoor movie theme park comprises six attractions which combine 3D effects, live actors, props, stunts and special effects.

The park also includes a live action theatre known as The Han Show, which features aerial, aquatic and immersive stage performance technology, including seating that lifts and pivots to enable the audience configuration to change shape. Also at the park are immersive restaurants, fast-food outlets, guest facilities and Hollywood-themed retail opportunities.

“The Han Show and Wanda Movie Park are first of a kind, unique projects which will undoubtedly become new symbols of Chinese culture, as well as leading new global entertainment brands,” said Wanda group chair Wang Jianlin.

Wanda has said it is planning to spend more than US$32bn (€26.8bn, £21bn) on theme parks and entertainment developments across the theme park hotbed of China in future, where at present there are more than 60 such ongoing developments.
