    It appears that Six Flags are to open a park in China - I'm not sure if this is open knowledge and people know where it actually is based? But this appeared on LinkedIn:

    David McKillips SVP International Operations;
    President of Six Flags Development Company

    The planning continues! Our Design Team met with The Riverside Group, Forrec and Govt Officials on design plans for Six Flags first theme park complex in China.
    And we are still hiring great positions in China for Aquatics and Marketing; and a US Based New Business Development Director - please see: https://lnkd.in/ev8uSXS

    There's a pretty old topic somewhere that I can't be arsed to dig out. The first one should be south of Shanghai, across the water from the Fantawild parks in Ningbo.

    The preview center on site opened last July

    There will be more than one park here too. As well as the seperate resort in Chongqing.
    The Resort mentioned in this thread will have Six Flags Theme Park, Hurrican Harbour and Six Flags Kids World
    While the Chongqing park will have the new Six Flags Adventure Park along with its Theme Park and Kids World

    "Six Flags Kids World—the first park of its kind and designed especially for families with young children—will be built adjacent to both Six Flags Zhejiang and Six Flags Chongqing"

    "Six Flags Kids World will feature junior-sized versions of the company’s world famous, recording-breaking roller coasters, rides and attractions. Families with young children will enjoy meeting and interacting with some of their favorite characters. Brightly-themed restaurants will offer kid-friendly menu options and retail shops will feature a wide selection of apparel, toys and souvenirs. Six Flags Kids World will be the perfect complement to the Six Flags theme park and Hurricane Harbor water park in Zhejiang, and the Six Flags portfolio of parks in Chongqing. "

    "For the more daring enthusiasts, Six Flags Adventure Park will be the ultimate in high adrenaline, action-packed thrills. From motocross bicycle races along rugged terrain, to whitewater rafting to zip lining or rock climbing hundreds of feet above the ground, guests will have the opportunity to reach beyond their comfort zone and safely push the boundaries of self-discovery in a beautiful, natural environment. Six Flags innovation will be on full display in the design of the various challenges and attractions throughout the park. Six Flags Adventure Park will be a thrilling new addition to the Six Flags Chongqing entertainment lineup."

    All the parks are apparently due to open in 2020. So they better get a move on.

    That theme could either be brilliant or utter :emoji_poop:. I'm expecting a half-assed version of the brilliant concept, but can also see it going to complete :emoji_poop:.

    Um... it looks like an interesting theme, and I think it could be quite cute if it's pulled off nicely! Are Tuzkis popular in China or something?
