Six Flags announces new additions in China, new kids park in first phase
Just weeks after announcing they had acquired the leasing rights to five parks here in the states, Six Flags isn’t slowing down. They recently announced that their Nanjing entertainment complex will have a fourth park, Six Flags Kids World. The first phase of the complex, which will include the Kids World property, is scheduled to open in 2021. Nanjing is the capital of Jiangsu province and the second largest city in the East China region.
“Today’s announcement demonstrates our growing commitment to a diverse park portfolio in China,” said Six Flags International Development Company President, David McKillips. “There is a huge, untapped audience for the type of innovative, thrilling entertainment Six Flags is known for, and we look forward to welcoming guests from throughout China to experience all of our parks with family and friends.”
“Six Flags is the undisputed industry leader in creating thrills for all ages and we are excited to introduce this best-in-class family brand to future generations,” said Riverside Investment Group Chairman Zhe Li.
Six Flags Kids World will feature some of the most iconic attractions found at Six Flags, but toned down for the little ones to enjoy. The park will even feature vibrant play zones, based on popular domestic and international intellectual properties, will encourage kids to explore and conquer new challenges. Six Flags Kids World will also offer education-based entertainment with an emphasis on math and science, and physical fitness. Specialty restaurants will serve a wide selection of kid-friendly menu options and retail locations will stock all of the latest toys, games and apparel.
Six Flags Kids World will be built adjacent to the previously announced theme park. This park, once completed, will bring the total number of Six Flags parks in China to 11.
