Thinkwell Group designing Monkey King theme park in China for 2014
Written by Robert Niles
Burbank-based theme park design firm Thinkwell Group is working on a new theme park in China, which is set for debut in 2014.Tweet
We've spoken with the crew at Thinkwell before. (They're the people behind the Universal 360 – A Cinesphere Spectacular at Universal Studios Florida, and the Special Effects Stage at Universal Studios Hollywood, among others. They are also developing the Harry Potter studio tour in England.) For the Chinese park, they're working off the Monkey King, a Chinese legend that will provide the theme for the park.
Here's the press release:
Monkey King Co. Ltd, a subsidiary of the real estate, financial and cultural industry investment enterprise Zhonghong Real Estate has appointed Thinkwell Group as the design firm for the highly immersive Monkey Kingdom theme park slated to open in 2014. The USA-based design firm has been collaborating with Zhonghong on the strategy, concept, master plan and attraction development for the park since mid-2010.
