    Bruce Lee theme park coming to China

    Bruce Lee to get own theme park in China

    Updated 11/27/2006 2:23 PM ET

    Bruce Lee, right, delivers the coup de grace in 1973's Enter the Dragon.

    HONG KONG (AP) — A theme park with a statue and memorial hall will be built at Bruce Lee's southern Chinese ancestral home of Shunde, the president of his fan club said Monday.
    The park will also contain a martial arts academy and conference center, Wong Yiu-keung, chairman of the Hong Kong-based Bruce Lee Club, told The Associated Press.

    Wong said he couldn't confirm details of a report Monday in the Apple Daily newspaper that said the park was budgeted at $25.5 million and was expected to be completed in three years.

    Wong said he attended the laying of the theme park's foundation in Shunde, near Hong Kong, on Sunday. He said Lee's younger brother, Robert Lee, and actress Betty Ting Pei also attended.
    The newspaper said Ting donated a set of nunchucks — a weapon consisting of two sticks joined by a chain or rope — that Lee once used.

    Lee, who was born in San Francisco, died of an edema, or swelling of the brain, in Hong Kong in 1973. He was 32. His action films included Fists of Fury and Enter the Dragon.

    Wong said he wasn't certain who is funding the theme park.

    Are there going to be any rides? Plus I wonder what the theme(s) will be.

    $25.5 million??? Not sure if this is really a "Theme Park". Not sure if you could even build a "Park" for that much.

    I mean, just the Route 66 area of DCA probably cost more than $25 million, and that doesn't count Mullholland Madness.

    I believe that the value of money is different there though. I am not sure if its value is higher or lower than American money, but 25 mil. could possibly do a lot over there.

    Well, $25,000,000 US dollars is about 196,000,000 Yuan Renminbi. So if it was $25,000,000 in China money then it would do LESS.
