​Latest site photos from Global 100, one of China’s largest theme parks, which is due to open in October 2018

Construction on the US$6 billion Global 100 theme park is nearly complete, with the mammoth development on course to open in October 2018.

Global 100 is a mixed-use, leisure, retail, hospitality and residential scheme over 400 hectares in Haikou, on Hainan Island, China. The 170 hectare theme park consists of six different villages, each influenced by international film-making attractions from China, Europe and America.

Chapman Taylor developed the Global 100 masterplan for Changchun Film Group Corporation, as well as providing the concept and architectural designs for the English and Chinese villages.

The English-themed village incorporates characters such as James Bond, Mr. Bean and Alice in Wonderland beside architectural emblems including castles, country villages and industrial landscapes.

The Chinese Village draws on the ancient Loulan kingdom, with a waterfront component featuring a fishing village and the giant ship from the legend of Zheng He’s expedition, combined in a theme based upon the Great Silk Road.

When complete, it will rival existing globally famous attractions offered by Disney and other entertainment industry leaders.
