Six Flags Entertainment Corp. announced Dec. 19 that it will develop a Hurricane Harbor Water Park adjacent to its Six Flags-branded theme park being built in China's Zhejiang province.
The project will be done in partnership with China's Riverside Investment Group.
Both the water park and the $4.6 billion Six Flags Zhejiang development on the coast of Hangzhou Bay are expected to open in 2019.
Six Flags also appointed Mark Kane as general manager and park president of Six Flags Zhejiang. Kane previously was park president of Six Flags Great Adventure and Six Flags New England in the U.S.

The Six Flags projects are among a series of amusement park developments by international and local companies in China, including Walt Disney Co., Universal Studios Inc., NBCUniversal LLC unit DreamWorks Animation LLC, and Dalian Wanda Group Co. Ltd., Variety reported Dec. 19.
