    Genting arm proposes Hengqin theme park

    Stephanie Lai | 07/01/2014 | in BUSINESS

    Treasure Island Entertainment Complex says the project may cost up to 40 billion yuan
    Treasure Island Entertainment Complex Ltd, a Macau company that says it is part of Genting Group’s Hong Kong operation, is proposing to build a theme park on Hengqin Island, company chairman Yany Kwan said yesterday.

    Mr Kwan spoke to reporters after meeting members of a panel that assesses investment proposals by enterprises interested in doing business in the area of the island reserved for Macau companies.
    “There will be different zones designed for the theme park,” Mr Kwan said. “The core zone, in our initial design, will be able to provide more than 20 types of amusement facilities to visitors.”
    “The other areas will be open for the public to shop or dine.”

    Mr Kwan said the theme park would need at least 0.5 square km of land.
    “The project may require three phases of construction, with an investment of at least 30 billion yuan [39.6 billion patacas] to 40 billion yuan,” he said.

    He said he could not predict how long the whole park would take to build. But the first phase, which would have a cinema, a performance venue and amusement facilities, should take 30 months, he said.

    Mr Kwan said the first phase would cost about 15 billion yuan.

    Treasure Island Entertainment Complex declined to say where the money would come from.
    The company told Business Daily that it had yet to decide on a name in English for the theme park. But a literal translation of its name for the park in Chinese is “Resorts World Hengqin, China”.
    Mr Kwan said he was unworried by the prospect of competition from the Chimelong International Ocean Resort on Hengqin or Ocean Park in Hong Kong.

    The main elements of the Chimelong resort are due to open before the Lunar New Year at the end of this month.

    “It’d be even better if we can have a group of different theme parks operating on the island or in our neighbouring region so that people have more choice,” Mr Kwan said.

    “That would be like people can visit Disney World, Universal Studios and Six Flags in Orlando on their family trips.”

      MACAU DAILY TIMES - Hengqin: Chimelong Ocean Kingdom to open before CNY

      Hengqin: Chimelong Ocean Kingdom to open before CNY

      A hotel, a circus and the Ocean Kingdom resort will reportedly be open to visitors in Hengqin before the Chinese New Year.

      A representative of the Guangdong Chimelong Group announced recently that the main elements of the Chimelong Ocean Resort – the Hengqin Bay hotel, routine circus shows, as well as the Ocean Kingdom – will be ready before the lunar new year.

      According to a Zhuhai local newspaper and Macau Daily News, the Hengqin Bay hotel will open on Saturday (January 18). The remaining events and facilities will be open for business before the Chinese New Year, which begins at the end of this month.

      The Hengqin Bay hotel is said to contain 1888 rooms. The developer is also aiming to provide regular performances in the Circus Town.

      The Chime-Long Group paid RMB36.7 million for the theme park, which originated from and is based in Guangzhou. The first phase was scheduled to open around November, when the first China International Circus Festival was held on the island. However, the opening time was postponed to January 2014.

      A site tour was offered to some media representatives last week. Entertainment items such as a roller coaster, an aquarium of whales and sharks, and a firework presentation were shown to the journalists, according to the Zhuhai newspaper.

      In addition, some new projects started construction last week. Two more hotels, with special features of penguin cartoons and European style buildings, will be located in Hengqin with 2000 and 700 rooms respectively.

      Upon the completion of the Circus Hotel and the Penguin Hotel, plus the newly built Hengqin Bay Hotel, the Ocean Resort will have nearly 5000 rooms for guests.

      Located to the north-east of the Ocean Kingdom with an area more than 10,000m2, the 5D special effect cinema is the key recreational project of Chimelong Ocean Kingdom, and will be one of the biggest 5D cinemas in Asia.

      The three projects that kicked off construction require an investment of RMB5 billion. GY
