Gallery Of China's Bootleg World Of Warcraft Theme Park

chinese-wow-park-25.jpg

This is a series of photos from Redditor FrancescaO_O of China's recently opened Joyland World, an amusement park based on World of Warcraft. Of course they can't call it World of Warcraft, because that would require licensing rights, and why pay for those if you don't have to? Back me up, garage full of Ed Hardy t-shirts I printed myself and plan to sell on eBay! "Um, GW? These tags all say CAUTION: HIGHLY FLAMMABLE." *wink* They'll explode if exposed to self-tanner too.

Hit the jump for a ton more shots. I also like how the rides have a happiness index and the one they show is only 3 out of 5 stars. NOT A VERY HAPPY RIDE.

Thanks to Slasha Slim, who heard a guy put his arms up on the Dungeon Raid Coaster of Doom and lost both hands. I believe it.

There are Comments.
  • This must be an elaborate intervention plan parents send their WoW addicted kids to a Chinese boot camp.

  • All I have to say is... WOW.

  • I can't wait to ride the SKY SCRAPPER

  • The panda guy is kind of creepy looking.

    Happiness Index: About a 2

    If it's anything like the game it will NEVER BE OPEN because it will ALWAYS BE UNDERGOING MAINTENANCE. Is what GW should have said according to 9/10 random, anonymous, objective readers.

  • chessboxer

    They're neither random nor anonymous when all of them are you. Just sayin...

  • Forblat

    I'm excited to see how this looks when it's abandoned 20 years from now

  • TLGi9

    imagine a zombie apocalypse in that enviroment!

  • kinkerzz

    well if it IS like WoW it won't take 20 year give it 7 or so .

    In that gallery, you can see statues of specific Warcraft characters (Archimonde, Sylvanas, Vashj, Illidan, Arthas, etc).

    Damn, this place looks good enough to be an official park. When you put this much effort and detail into a bootleg, seems like the only reason not to get it liscensed is pride in your country's ability to steal stuff.

  • Leo

    Happiness Index falling below 2 stars

  • Bubbubsky

    I love the broken English. They spend all of that money building the place, but getting a good translator? Hell no!

  • BillGatesIsYourDaddy

    well...it certainly looks....busy.

  • Erik Hansen

    I'm fascinated by the testicles on the satanic centaur. I thought they'd be bigger.

  • Adamant

    Keal'Thass, he'll only make you 60% happy. Even ripped of he's a depressing emo.

    Hmm that red ogre is definitely wearing the horde emblem on his waist. Sic' Em Blizz!

  • Karin

    I didn't notice that at first! Nice eye!

  • sionus

    This park has absolutely nothing to do with World of Warcraft, and looks nothing like it. It's more of a generic Korean MMO style.
