Chocolate theme park to open in former Expo Site

The world's first chocolate-themed park will open next month in Zone C of the former Expo Site, featuring such scenes as the "Chocolate Waterfall" and "Rainbow Bridge" in the film "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory."

The park which cost 100 million yuan (US$16.05 million) in investment has eight theme areas, the Expo Shanghai Group told local media yesterday.

A chocolate castle was built with 300 tons of chocolate and contains chocolate replicas of the marble statues of Venus and David and Auguste Rodin's sculpture "The Thinker." These sculptures are made with a special method and can last three to five years at normal temperature.

The eight-meter-high and ten-meter-wide "Chocolate Waterfall" and the "Rainbow Bridge" made with colorful candies will give visitors a unique experience.

The park will be put on a trial run for six months starting from mid-December. Admission costs 120 yuan per adult and 60 yuan for a child under 140 centimeters.
