[RCT3] Warner Bros Movie Park Shanghai

Recommended Posts

So I was previously making a Jurassic World theme park but then my computer died and I had to buy a new one, so now, after a visit to Shanghai Disneyland and inspired by my own hometown's Warner Bros. Movie World have decided to make a new park!




'Warner Bros. Movie Park Shanghai'


The WB water tower, how nice


The park will be divided into 11 Themed Areas:


Map of the Park


Aerial View of the Park


Guests will enter the park through Hollywood which will have all the usual Main Street stuff and a tram way that runs down the middle.


To the left of Hollywood is the 'DC Universe' Area consisting of Metropolis and Gotham City, this area will have a duelling sit-down and flying coaster combo called Superman vs Batman (hopefully the ride will be better than the movie) and a number of other DC themed rides and attractions!


Up from The DC Universe Area will be 'Lego City' (Name not finalised) an area themed to the Lego Movie.


Next is the 'Space Centre' (Name also not finalised) which will be home to rides based on films like Gravity, Interstellar and Blade Runner.


Attached to the Space centre are two smaller lands

- The first is 'The Wasteland' an area themed to the film 'Mad Max Fury Road' and is home to a launched coaster called 'Fury Road' (creative I know).

- The second is 'Shatterdome Hong Kong' which is themed to the film 'Pacific Rim' and features a large indoor area home to 2 flat rides called 'Jaeger' & 'Kaiju' and a tilt-coaster called 'Gyspy Danger. The area also has external theming called 'The Bone Slums' which has a chinese restaurant called 'Hannibal Chow's' after the character in the film.

Next up is 'Monster Island' which is home of the Monarch corporation, and will feature a giga coaster called 'Godzilla' and rides based around King Kong & the Godzilla franchise.


Below Monster Island is 'Looney Toon Land', a kids area, haven't decided much of this one yet though


Below that is 'The Wild Wild West' which is a land based on the Will Smith film of the same name, I know not a lot of people liked the film but western with a touch of steampunk seemed like a cool thing to build, there is also a train in this area that links to Monster Island.

Lastly 'Middle Earth' is based on the Lord of the Rings franchise and will feature the locales of Mordor and Osgiliath.


There'll also be a shopping district and a hotel and theres even room for an expansion if warranted.


So hopefully this goes well and if you have any tips, ideas for rides, feedback, just comment below and I hope you enjoy the park!

Work on the park is progressing nicely


Starting to look like something now!


Two new attractions are underway;


First up, based on the Warner Bros. franchise of the same name:



The Hellena Hotel Closed in 1937 after a terrible accident... Do you dare to enter... THE HELL HOTEL

"The Conjuring: Hell Hotel takes guests on an expedition with paranormal investigators Ed and Loraine Warren into the Hellena Hotel, the site of a tragic accident and America's most haunted hotel, nicknamed, the Hell Hotel. Guests board state of the art Poltergeist Hunting Vehicles (or PHVs) and proceed to explore the hotel and unravel its horrifying secrets."

The Conjuring Hell Hotel features an immersive and highly themed attraction as well as retail and dining outlets and is home to the Hellena Hotel Tram Stop.


The Conjuring: Hell Hotel features an immersive queue, retail and dining as well as a heavily themed ghost train ride


Next up, soon to be the park's biggest attractions:



Construction underway on the Batman V Superman Duelling Coasters

Batman V Superman are a pair of duelling coasters: Batman being a sit-down extended coaster (on which you ride in the Batmobile) and Superman; a flying coaster. The Coasters have just been built, heavy theming and supports are coming next so stay tuned!

- Hollywood has some new shops and restaurants including:

An art deco diner with outdoor seating

A confectionary shop

A large main street emporium

- DC Universe

The Metropolis Exposition Tower provides a vantage point that guests can see the whole park from

The park has taken a strange approach to the supports for Batman V Superman, first up the lift hill for superman is a huge steel super structure only linking to the ground at its mid point and Batman's lift hill clings to the side of it and overall both rides have a huge amount of over the top engineering... I wonder why Warner Bros. is taking this route? perhaps it might account for some theming

In The Wild Wild West new theming has gone in... only facades though to hide the tram maintenance shed that is hidden between The Wild Wild West and Middle Earth


Wild Wild West has some new buildings...


Nah just facades to hide the tram maintenance shed

Warner Bros. Movie Park Shanghai is proud to announce that the first area of the park to be primarily completed is...

The Train Station has been relocated to expand the queue for 'A Wild Wild West Adventure'


- There is now a wharf and docks... Not sure how this meets the old west but lets just go with it...

The first part of the DC Universe to be mostly completed is the Metropolis area.

It is home to the secondary entrance to the park for guests staying at the 'DC Universe Super Heroes Hotel' a hotel themed around DC Superheroes with wings themed and styled to DC's most popular heroes.

Lego Themed Area


The Lego themed area (name pending)

Still don't have a name for this area (Lego City = Area in real life Legoland, Lego Universe = too close to DC Universe in name in my opinion, Lego Movie Land = kind of awful, so any ideas would be muchly appreciated. In addition to the rides below there is a giant ferris wheel and a dodgems so far.


The major ride here is the 'Cloud Cuckoo Coaster' which is a spinning steel coaster which wraps around the whole area.

There is also 'Metal Beard's Galleon' a Pirate Ship ride.

Just a quick update today, I decided that the area that was going to be for the Looney Tunes area was better suited for other ideas, so I built the Looney Tunes Boardwalk:

Taz's Tornado faux wooden coaster


It's home to the Taz's Tornado faux wooden coaster (a kids version of california screaming), daffy's dodgems, and a yet to be named wave swinger, giant slide and ferry themed flat ride.
