    Re: China's biggest Theme Park to debut next yr? any impact on HKDL?

    I said this would happen.

    It made no sense for Central to work with any park industry veterans when they can open their own venture, make cheesy imitations of established icons and rides, and let 'er rip to an audience that doesn't know enough to know better.

    Can I get an I CALLED IT here?



    Why, thank you.

    Set to open this time next year? Wow, that's what I call a production line!

    Well, I can't see how it won't pull a few mainland customers away from HKDL, but perhaps this is a good thing.

    Some VERY healthy competition could shame Disney into some rapid expansion.

    Call me pessamistic, but there is nothing good that comes from a "rush job" in China. They take years to get things done right, and even then there are problems.

    I don't know what is happening at HKDL. I won't even begin to guess, but as you walk down the promenad to the big fountain, you can hear construction noise (since july anyway) The crane is over by Story book theater. These things take time. When we bought our house, we had to wait another two years to move in because it just wasn't ready on time. After we moved in, we had the construction team in putting seals on the windows because they just weren't ready. The speed here is different. People only move faster in central (if you believe the hype)

    For my money, HKDL is a nice little park that can only get nicer.
