Turner Brings Original Branded Attractions to Six Flags in China


Turner Asia Pacific has entered into a new partnership with Six Flags Entertainment and Riverside Investment Group for original branded experiences in Six Flags parks throughout China.

The deal covers a new Tuzki-branded dark ride at Six Flags Zhejiang and Six Flags Chongqing, which are scheduled to open in 2019 and 2020, respectively. In addition to the new ride, both parks will feature Tuzki theming and new retail locations offering branded merchandise.

The agreement between Turner and Riverside Investment Group also allows for other Turner-owned IP from Cartoon Network’s portfolio of characters and shows to be featured inside Six Flags Kids World. Six Flags Kids World, the first park of its kind designed especially for families with young children, will be built adjacent to both Six Flags Zhejiang and Six Flags Chongqing.

“The Six Flags brand is synonymous with innovative thrills for all ages,” said David McKillips, the president of Six Flags International Development Company. “We look forward to working with Turner Asia Pacific to create immersive, content-rich attractions throughout our China parks.”

Ricky Ow, the president of Turner Asia Pacific, commented, “We are honored to join forces with these two best-in-class companies to bring memorable, one-of-a-kind entertainment offerings to China. This is the first time that Tuzki’s loyal fans will be able to really experience their favorite emoticon in such a tangible and authentic way. Together with our partners, Six Flags and Riverside Investment Group, we are excited to offer this immersive, new attraction to park guests.”

“This partnership brings together two powerhouse entertainment brands with a long tradition of making people happy,” added Riverside Investment Group Chairman Zhe Li. “Tuzki is a beloved icon for China’s younger generation and is the perfect addition to the Six Flags family of parks.”
