MARKET REPORT: ASIA PACIFIC A large share of the new theme parks


are located in Central China which historically has lagged behind the coastal cities in terms of theme park projects. In keeping with directions from national and regional governments, most new theme parks utilise Chinese historical and cultural themes rather than western themes. One international IP indoor theme park opened in Zhuhai, Lionsgate Entertainment World featuring first ever rides, VR experiences and attractions utilising famous movies and television series. Lionsgate Entertainment World is the anchor attraction of a new mixed-use complex called Novotown developed by the LaiSun Group. The complex also features a National Geographic Ultimate Explorer edutainment centre for families.


“In general, 2019 was a solid year for theme park visitation, despite a slow economy and trade war worries.”


In addition to theme parks, two large


scale retail dining and entertainment complexes opened which have a high level of pay as you go rides, shows and entertainment offerings amongst a wide selection of casual restaurants, snack stands and retail outlets. We can expect more complexes of this nature coming up in the future.


Overall market growth In general, 2019 was a solid year for theme park visitation, despite a slow economy and trade war worries. Shanghai Disney did not have any major


new attraction opening in 2019 yet still managed to achieve higher income (and slightly lower attendance). Shanghai Disney started construction of a new land based on Zootopia which was a big cinematic hit in China.


Hong Kong affected by social movement Not every market was rosy, Hong Kong was significantly impacted by the social movement which began around June 2019. Frequent protests, sometimes violent, resulted in sharp drops in tourism arrivals to Hong Kong. For Ocean Park and Hong Kong Disneyland, the majority of attendance is derived by tourists. Therefore, these parks struggled to maintain their attendance and operating performance. Hong Kong Disneyland is in the midst of a multi year expansion programme which should bring back visitors. Ocean Park has similarly developed plans and recently


received government funding for operations and upgrades.


Growing interest in SE Asia Southeast Asia is often overshadowed by the active development in Mainland China. However, Southeast Asia with a population of 680 million is one of the fastest growing regions in the world. With economies growing 4%-7% per year and youthful populations, it is only a matter of time for new theme park projects to emerge. Indonesia, Philippines and Vietnam are poised for new projects. Trans Corporation is a growing


powerhouse in theme entertainment, media and finance in Indonesia. In 2019, Trans Corporation opened two new Trans Studio indoor theme entertainment projects in Cibubur (South of Jakarta) and Bali. This adds to the already successful Trans Studio theme entertainment projects in Bandung and Makassar.
