Jackie Chan - Jackie Chan To Open Theme Park In China
Action superstar Jackie Chan is planning to build a theme park in China.
The Karate Kid actor is working on the project, which is set to be located in Beijing's Yizhuang district, with a local partner.
The star has not confirmed the number of attractions planned for the park, which will be called JC World, but he aims to exhibit items such as furniture and four antique Chinese wooden buildings that he has collected over his career.
Chan tells the Malaysia Times, "I want to exhibit all my stuff. They may not all be worth a lot of money, but they may have a story behind them... I was very poor when I was a child, so when I had money later on, I bought all sorts of things and went around the world collecting them."
The park, which is set to feature five sections, each with a different cultural theme, will have no entrance fee although some attractions will be ticketed.
Chan adds, "Sixty per cent of the park will be free, 40 per cent will be ticketed, with the money used to maintain the antique buildings... I am not short on money."
No opening date has yet been confirmed.
