    Macau Government eyes theme parks for economic diversification

    MACAU DAILY TIMES - Government eyes theme parks for economic diversification

    “What we lack now is a theme park - maybe we could have some kind of policy inclination to encourage and support the city to have its own theme park,” Macau chief executive Chui Sai-On said, without elaborating on the number of theme parks Macau ‘needed’, or what kinds of theme parks he was envisioning - such as established brand names like Disneyland and Universal Studios, or newly created ones.

    Most likely it will be Universal Studios, as Disney tends not to involve itself with casinos. Also because HKDL is just in nearby Hong Kong.

    Re: Macau Government eyes theme parks for economic diversification

    Macao is having issues because they still think the clientele are like Vegas tourists of the 90's-00's when the truth of the matter is most of the Macao tourists are like the Vegas tourists of the 50's and 60's. Macao's tourists arrive, gamble, and leave. Shows, dinner, shopping? Aside from House of Dancing Water, shows are not selling that well. Dinner is a quick afterthought, when there are lots of great restaurants in Taipa and Ilhas. As for shopping why shop there when HK is that close? Theme parks are not going to be the magic bullet for Macao...
    Amnesia used to be my favourite word, but I forgot it.
