Theme Parks Booming in Asia

More and more theme parks are being planned across Asia, which is creating new opportunities for designers.

Places like China and Macau are luring new major entertainment resorts and theme parks.

"New theme parks, resorts and casinos are scheduled to open from Singapore to Seoul over the next several years as property developers and entertainment companies aim to draw Asia's rapidly growing middle classes. They're betting there will be a big market for family amusement rides, live shows and the chance to pose for a picture with Snow White.

The projects represent the next big growth area for skilled and experienced designers and creators as the North American market has become saturated and opportunities to design big new resorts have dried up."
