Today work officially began on the new Six Flags park in China which is set to cost a whopping, $4.6 billion!
The location will be just over 2 hours from where Shanghai Disneyland is located meaning that this park has to be on par with Disney in order to draw people in.
Although addresses aren’t 100% confirmed yet, you can see the rough distance between the Six Flags park in Haiyan and Disneyland on the map below:
President of the Six Flags International development company, Josh Odum, had this to say on the new park:
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.
Concept art for Six Flags China looks incredible and shows a lot of ambition with what looks to be a combination of rollercoasters, family friendly rides and a fantastic seaside placement of the park:
Unfortunately Six Flags hasn’t announced any attractions that are set to open yet but what we do know is that the park is scheduled to open in 2019.
