The popular lasagna-loving cat will serve as the signature character in children’s areas of the new parks.
Six Flags Entertainment and Riverside Tourism Investment Group have teamed up with Paws Inc. to feature Garfield in China’s first-ever Six Flags branded parks.
Through the partnership, the children’s areas of each Six Flags park in China will be themed after Garfield and other characters from the iconic comic strip.
“This is a great opportunity for Garfield to entertain families and children,” says Jim Davis, creator, Garfield. “Six Flags and Riverside have an extraordinary project planned and to have our characters featured is an incredible honor.”
Six Flags Zhejiang is scheduled to open in 2019; meanwhile, Six Flags Chongqing is slated to open in 2020.
“We are excited to partner with the great team at Paws Inc. to create unique, themed sections based on the beloved Garfield character for children and their families,” says John Odum, president, Six Flags International Development Company. “From themed rides and attractions to live shows, character meet and greets and merchandise, guests will be fully immersed inside the clever world of Garfield and friends.”
