It’s really a good news for all Warcraft and Starcraft fans around the world. Just a couple months ago, the first amusement park created based on Warcraft and Starcraft has just opened last year to public in China. It’s World Joyland (Chinese : 嬉戏谷; pinyin : Xīxì Gǔ) that located in Changzhou, Jiangsu province. It’s just about two hours away from Shanghai if you go by train and bus. The park was built spread over 600,000 square meters and it’s cost about 200 million yuan (about $30 million USD). The park itself divided into five sections. Too bad, this is not official theme park of Warcraft and Starcraft, because the park was built without the use of the original name of the Blizzard. It’s mean that the park owners doesn’t need to pay a license to Blizzard. Starcraft section in this park has been renamed as Universe of Starship, while Warcraft section has been renamed as Terrain of Magic.
The park is open from 9am to 10pm. The park 5 sections are Terrain of Warcraft (Warcraft section), Universe of StarCraft (Starcraft section), Island of Mystery, Moles World (the kids area section), and World of Legend. But the most entertaining aspects of the park is come from two largest section of the park, which are Terrain of Magic and Universe of Starship. A lot people said that this park have a lot of similarities to Universal’s Islands of Adventure in Florida. There are a lot of cool ride inside such as wet splash ride, boat ride, roller coaster, 4D theater, and many others.
