Six Flags to Build Water Park in China

Six Flags Entertainment, the U.S. theme parks group, is to build a Hurricane Harbor Water Park in China.

The water park will be adjacent to the $4.6 billion Six Flags Zhejiang theme park that is now under construction on the coast of Hangzhou Bay. Like the theme park, the water park will be developed jointly with China’s Riverside Investment Group. Both are expected to open in 2019.

The two companies also announced the appointment of Mark Kane as general manager and park president of Six Flags Zhejiang. He was previously park president at Six Flags Great Adventure and Six Flags New England.

“Six Flags Zhejiang will be home to some of the most incredible roller coasters, rides and attractions in the world. The park will also feature elaborately-themed sections celebrating time-honored Chinese traditions, live shows and seasonal events along with a wide variety of culinary offerings and retail locations. Six Flags Hurricane Harbor will feature thrilling water slides, a massive wave pool, a relaxing Lazy River and an intricately designed children’s water play area,” the companies said in a statement.

International and local groups are currently building a succession of theme parks in China. They include Universal’s park near Beijing and Dreamworks’ Dream City near Shanghai. China’s Dalian Wanda has announced plans to build more than a dozen Wanda City parks as its response to the opening earlier this year of Shanghai Disneyland, Disney’s first theme park in mainland China.
