parks in the middle to attract buyers. Yinji is a bit different; they are not following that model. This waterpark will be separate to their real estate and I believe they are focused on diversifying their business. They currently have a live show attraction that draws crowds in the summer. The waterpark will be an excellent anchor in this location for further development of a dry park and other attractions. The waterpark will also include a Hopkins Shoot the Chute ride – a product normally found in dry theme parks, but is perfect for a waterpark too!


Double FlowRider at HotGo Park, Changzhou


If you look at Henan province, you’ve got a population over 94,000,000! In Zhengzhou, as with many other Chinese cities, you could draw a circle and within an hour’s train or car ride you are catching tens of millions of people – and they all want parks and attractions. People say to me how much longer can this go on? Frankly, there’s still a lot of potential.
