SPLENDID CHINA: THE UNFORGETTABLE JOURNEY.

VHS_SplendidChina[VHS: Splendid China – 1995 – 24 mins]. “Our 76-acre theme park features the magnificent work of more than 120 artisans and crafts people from China. They spent over two years re-creating 60 of the most wondrous sights, in full and reduced scale, of one of the world’s oldest civilizations.” THE GREAT WALL stretches for thousands of miles and was built by millions of workers over many centuries. Our half-mile-long reduced scale wall contains six-and-a-half million two-inch bricks – each laid by hand. Also marvel at: The Imperial Palace / Forbidden City, Stone Forest, Leshan Grand Buddha Statue, Terra Cotta Warriors… ANDY SHINE SAYS: Splendid China (Orlando, Florida) operated between 1993 and 2003. With no amusement rides it wasn’t a theme park exactly; more a model village with shops, theatres and restaurants on an impressively grand scale. ANDY SHINE’S RATING: Fair / Good.
