Chinese billionaire Wang Jianlin opens second ‘Wanda City’ theme park

Billionaire Wang Jianlin has fired the latest salvo in his war with Disney over dominance of the mainland’s theme park business, opening a 24 billion yuan (HK$27.9 billion) complex in Anhui province on Saturday.

Wanda Cultural Tourism City ties a theme park with hotels, water park, movie theatre and residential flats across a 1.6 sq km area just a short drive from downtown Hefei.
