On 20/09/2013, in Tourism, by rain

Theme park, as an important tourism product, has become the trend of the development of tourism industry. Many countries and regions are committed to the development of effective urban tourism products, and theme park has been one of the focuses of the spotlight. The facts have proved that the success of theme park can greatly enhance the active role of tourism industry in promoting the development of other industries, improve the level of local residents’leisure entertainment, promote the construction of a city, and realize the sustainable development of an area. It is also an effective way to develop the city tourism.During late1980s, along with the huge success of Shenzhen theme park, China’s theme park had a very impressive development both in speed and scale. Because market location is very important to a theme park, the theme parks are mainly located the east coast of China, the economically developed areas such as the Yangtze River delta and the Pearl River delta. In recent years, with the support of policies such as “the strategy to develop western regions” and “central China’s emerging strategy”, the economy of central and western China has developed rapidly, gradually forming the central plain urban cluster, Wuhan city circle, Chongqing urban circle, and etc. Theme park should be promoted in these areas step by step. Wuhan, as a typical city in central China, has made great efforts to construct theme parks in recent years, but failed to create a successful theme park. The current situation without impactive theme park is not in compliance with Wuhan’s status in central China.In this paper, I analyzed the spatial location and function position of Wuhan’s theme park in China on the basis of theme park’s space structure of China, by applying the location theory of geography, the life cycle theory of economics, the stakeholder theory of psychology and the resource integration theory of management and using literature analysis, spatial analysis, questionnaire and graphic charts. I made a questionnaire survey on the potential demand for Wuhan’s theme park and gave some rational suggestions to the construction of theme park in Wuhan. Based on the results, I concluded:it is necessary and feasible to build large theme park in Wuhan; it is imperative for Wuhan to build a brand theme park which can play active role in central China.

To meet customers’ varying demands, theme parks emerge in China as the times calls. From the very beginning, theme park, being in existence in China for almost 20 years, had gone through many ups and downs. As a project characterized with great investment and comparatively long return cycle, the operation and management of theme park faced high risks and opportunities at the same time. This article aimed at analyzing those risks and opportunities by focusing on one of its key factors–operation strategy.The author believed, it was true that the preliminary construction concepts and planning was indispensable for the successful operation of a theme park. But more importantly, the layout and implementation of its operation strategies was the essential finishing point for the final success of the project, especially for a new theme park. By combining theory and practice, this article discussed the operation strategy of theme park and analyzed it as a whole process. Besides, some technicalquestions during the process also had been put forward for argument. From the above, we could find how the operation strategy and tactics strategy supplemented each other. Finally the decision had been made through discussion. That is, strategy operation layout was one of the most effective tool for decision-making and the park’ s daily operation, which assured the harmony of theme park and its target market. But it was not omnipotence. The determinant factor for the success of theme park was the market response.This article is composed of six parts. The 1st part is a general introduction about the definition and origin of theme park and its development, current status, etc. ; the 2nd part analyzes the fundamental reasons contributed for the gap between the theme parks overseas and that in China and then point out the necessary need of theme park development in China; the 3rd part explains the important function of the operation strategy for theme park from the theoretical aspect; the 4th part discusses how to set up the strategic operation layout for theme park; the 5th part expounds the implementation of the operation strategy layout for theme park in detail; the last part lists some existing problems in current marketing strategies by taking China Dead Sea as an example, in order to provide some theoretical direction for operation strategy layout and implementation of theme park.
