The Chocolate Wonderland is finally open to the Beijing public.
As the first chocolate theme park in China, the Chocolate Wonderland will feature artefacts made from 80,000 kilograms of chocolate.
Aside from enjoying a visual feast of chocolate-made famous Chinese sculptures, visitors will also be able to learn how to make chocolate and taste their creations during the three-month display. The 20,000-square-meter chocolate wonderland consists of five indoor halls, including the World’s Chocolate Hall, World’s Candy Hall, Wonderland Theme Hall, Sweet Experience Hall and Sweet Gift Hall, and outdoor activity areas Sweet Stage and Sweet Shopping Street.
The chocolate exhibition includes the largest chocolate replica of the Great Wall in the world; life-sized chocolate replicas of the Terracotta Warriors and chocolate waterfalls. Zheng Yaoting, general manager of Beijing-based Artsource Planning Company, says all the chocolate comes from Belgium, and costs more than 200 yuan (NZD $40) a kilo.
Tickets for entry start from just 60 yuan (approx NZD $12).
