A Chinese entertainment organization known as Songcheng has started planning to create a theme park in Gold Coast, undeterred by the recent tragedy that occurred in the Dreamworld theme park in October 2016.
On Thursday, Songcheng Performance Development declared that it was trying to seek an approval to develop a theme park that would be known as the Australian Legendary World and it would be worth AU$600 million!
Moreover, the company also said that it has already paid about $55 million for a 45-hectare block of land where it is planning to develop the site for the theme park in Nerang.
The proposed theme park would be the first one that Songcheng would invest in – outside the familiar territories of its own native country.
The plan has been unveiled just a day after it was announced by Dreamworld that it would be reopening on 10th December, Saturday.
This iconic theme park had been closed down after the death of four people on the Thunder River Rapids on 25th October.
Tom Tate, the mayor of Gold Coast said that the tragedy at Dreamworld did not actually negatively impact the enthusiasm of the Chinese company Songcheng because he feels that there is still a great demand for man-made parks.
He went on to add that the vision of Songcheng is truly long-term.
Huang Qiaoling, the chairman of Songcheng said that the theme park that is about to be built would not pose any competition to the theme parks that already exist in that region.
The proposed theme park would exhibit a model of Uluru that would also act as a entrance of the park. Apart from that, a snow and ice world would be an added attraction of the park.
