Six Flags China Breaks Ground On Theme Park Near Shanghai

Much like mushrooms, theme parks are springing up from the ground all over China these days. Recently, work began on China’s first Six Flags branded theme park in Haiyan about 45 minutes away from Shanghai.


While the above image may give the perception that everyone arriving to Six Flags China will do so by helicopter or seaplane, I have been told that there is indeed a parking lot. Keep in mind, no attractions have been formally announced for the park, these artist renderings are only a sample of what you may find.


At the groundbreaking ceremony, John Odum, President, Six Flags International Development Company said “The Six Flags park in Haiyan will be a spectacular park featuring our signature lineup of record-breaking roller coasters, family rides and attractions and world-class shows—along with themed sections of the park that pay homage to the storied Chinese culture.”

Time will tell, but one thing is for sure, China is the place to be if you are a theme park fan in the next several years. Six Flags China will be opening in 2019.
