A new theme park has opened in Sanya, Hainan Island, China, with the special distinction of being the country’s first to open for 24 hours a day in full-season.

Sanya Haichang Fantasy Town is located in the centre of Sanya’s Haitang Bay and features 13 major attractions, two grand theatre shows, more than 30 universal amorous feelings shows, eight themed restaurants, over 50 speciality restaurants and 30 themed commodity stores.

Stretching to a huge 232,500sq m (2.5m sq ft), the park has eight themes – Haitang Bay, the African Sea, the Persian Gulf, the Bay of Bengal, the Java Sea, the South China Sea, the Waterfront Promenade and the Dream Ocean Theatre.

The park is operated by Haichang Ocean Park Holdings, which held a soft launch for the park at the start of the year.

The new park is one of a number of attractions either planned or opened on Hainan in recent years, including the planned Hello Kitty theme park, the forthcoming Merlin Entertainments park Legoland Sanya
and the Aquaventure waterpark, which opened last year.

Hainan attracts more than 60 million domestic tourists a year and the number of overseas visitors to Hainan is expected to exceed 2 million by 2020. To read more on Hainan’s tourist appeal and potential, check out the Q3 2018 edition of Attractions Management, available now.
