Aviation park set to be built at Expo site

SHANGHAI will build the city's first aviation theme park at the former World Expo 2010 site in Pudong with major attractions including a Boeing 747 aircraft, aviation simulators and a hot-air balloon to take visitors up 30 meters over the city.

The Aviator Theme Park, covering 30,000 square meters near the former USA Pavilion in Zone C, will open to the public next month with an admission price of 100 yuan (US$16), said Gao Liang, chief organizer of the park.

Some professional aviation simulators will also open to the public.

Engineers will reassemble some small-size aircraft at a transparent warehouse to show the process of airplane assembly.

A retired Boeing 747 plane will be turned into a club at the park's square. The plane, bought from logistics giant UPS, was dismantled and shipped to Shanghai in 85 containers.
