When the theme park The Wizarding World of Harry Potter opened at Universal Orlando, we could only guess at the inevitable franchises that would also follow suit. Never did we expect the ultimate dream. It’s true: We may soon be able to shake hands with a Hydralisk at a theme park!
A Chinese theme park called JoyLand is currently being built in Changzhou, Jiangsu Province (near Shanghai) for a planned opening date of March 2011. According to the park’s website, the vast funland will include “Universe of Starcraft,” “Terrain of Warcraft,” and “Island of Mystery.” Internet portal CCJoy, allegedly the “creator” of the “park,” has pegged the investment total of the park’s development at a whopping 200 million RMB (about 30 million US dollars).
