Where: Beijing, China

You know we’re all about roller coasters, theme parks, and all the other rides and attractions that come with them. This week there’s some new theme park news, as it sounds like there’s a park in development to be dedicated to one man and one man only.

Apparently it’s Jackie Chan who will soon be having business lunches with Mickey Mouse to discuss the amusement park business, as there are plans to hook him up with his very own park. Roller coasters, martial arts stuff, and plenty of t-shirts have already been planned, as the park—JC World—is scheduled to open over in Beijing.

Sticking with true theme park rules, there will be five themed sections spread across the park. All kinds of memorabilia and other tidbits from Jackie Chan’s life will be used to decorate and tell his story.

Right now things aren’t really set in stone, as no grand opening date has been revealed. According to Time, the park won’t be charging admission, but some attractions will be priced individually—we’re thinking tickets or something like that for the rides.

Part of us truly wonders if things will really ever get off the ground, but at the same time we guess it wouldn’t be all that surprising. So stay tuned, and we’ll let you know when the turnstiles arrive for the grand opening of JC World.
