China's Illegal WoW Theme Park

Behold China's illegal, $48 million World of Warcraft theme park.

Quote:
Yes, an enormous World of Warcraft theme park is now open in Changzhou, China, featuring everything from roller coasters and life-size recreations of entire scenes from the hit game series. But the park, dubbed "Joyland," is completely unsanctioned by the game's developer Blizzard. Which is why it's in China, hiding out from U.S. copyright law.
I think we let China keep this theme park, they let us out of the debt we owe them, and we just call it a wash.

Re: China's Illegal WoW Theme Park

48 million..... That pisses me off. It would be infinitely more expensive to build over here.

No wonder people are farming work to China.

I've never played World of Warcraft, it scares me how addicted people get, however I'd love to go to that theme park.

is it sadder that you made this comment or that I understood it?

And yes it would be infinitely more expensive in the US, it cost $48 million just to build X2 roller coaster at Six Flags Magic Mountain. Then again, it was built with safety standards, which cost extra.

The more work I do advising our estimating department, the more ridiculous I think our safety standards are. I understand valuing human life, but this is starting to get ridiculous. Kudos to the Chinese.

Re: China's Illegal WoW Theme Park

Do your own research. I used to read stuff on the news all the time in Hong Kong, about faulty theme park machinery and bad maintenance/management in China.

Yeah, who needs safety measures when some high school dropout is running the ride that is only maintained when it breaks?
