The Newest Theme Park Featuring Rides Based On Blockbuster Film Franchises Just Opened, In China

When I think of the best place to build a theme park featuring rides based of some of the most popular movie franchises from the last two decades, my first thought isn’t Hengqin Island in Zhuhai, China.
