The China Dreamland, also known as the Chuzhou Great Wall International Creative Park of Animation, Cartoon and Tourism, covers 200 hectares and includes imitations of famous buildings both in China and around the world. Its construction started in June 2013 and is expected to complete in 2018.

The park is built to be an incubator for businesses in the industries of animation and games, film and television, and will also be a tourist attraction. The Great Wall ACG Co Ltd invested 2 billion yuan ($322 million), and is investing an additional 1 billion yuan, said Tang Zuchen, deputy general manager of the park.
