Similar findings are reported by Christian Aaen, Principal at Entertainment+Culture Advisors (ECA). "Indicators point to China as the number 1 market for theme parks in the history of the industry," he says. "ECA is keeping busy in Asia - 50 to 60% of our work is in China these days and we are expanding our Hong Kong team. Aaen cites the need for companies to lay down the foundation for long-term support of the industry in Asia because of its potential to create long-term demand.

"And that is just the average," Aaen adds. "Some areas in Western China are growing as much as 12-15%. These "first-tier cities" are seeing the most activity and development.
"We are seeing these cities adapt to the tourist audience, serving up more entertainment," Aaen adds.

Legions of newly affluent Chinese making more trips around the country is one big factor driving China's resort building boom, said Christian Aaen, a principal at consultancy Entertainment+Cultural Advisors.

There's also a large pool of young people who are "looking for new things to do and are starved for entertainment," he said.
Meanwhile, China's government is also trying to promote tourism as part of a push to boost domestic consumption. Regional governments have been partnering with private companies to build property developments anchored by theme parks that also include hotels, shops, restaurants or other services, said Aaen.
