Disney-like theme park opens in eastern China
_____________________________________________________________________________________

A major amusement park billed as Disney Land-like complex opened to the public on Monday in eastern China, state press reported.At 1.25 million square metres (13.5 million square feet) the Fanta Wild theme park in Anhui’s Wuhu city, where a major industrial zone is also located, is nearly the same size as the Hong Kong Disneyland, Xinhua news reported.

The park was built at a cost of 1.5 billion yuan (200 million US dollars) and can handle three million visitors annually, the report said, by Shenzhen based Huaqiang Group.

No date for the park’s full-scale opening was provided.

For its part Disney has been in talks to build a mainland-based theme park in Shanghai for years, but has never struck a deal.

Meanwhile, Disneyland in Hong Kong, built at cost of 3.0 billion dollars two years ago, is struggling to attract visitors, its attendance target falling below expectations.

Disney, which opened on September 12, 2005, struggled to reach four million in its second year, far lower than the 5.2 million who visited in its first, reports in Hong Kong say.

Four million equals a daily average of less than 11,000 visitors — around one-third the park’s capacity of 34,000.
