Catching up on the emerging market for theme parks in India, DQ Entertainment (DQE) has inked an exclusive deal with Chiliad Procons to launch multiple indoor theme parks across India.
These theme parks will be inspired by few of the most successful IPs from the portfolio of DQE such as The Jungle Book, Peter Pan and Robinhood. The first Jungle Book-themed indoor park will debut in Mumbai in 2018, followed by Delhi in 2019 and further expand across major metro cities over the next few years.
The announcement was made at the Las Vegas Licensing that took place from May 22-24. The parks will introduce beloved characters such as ‘mancub’ Mowgli, Baloo the bear, Bhageera the panther and Sher Khan the tiger. Connecting bridges will allow children to explore through the jungle.
Manoj Mishra, COO of DQE Group, commented, “The theme parks being developed by Chiliad Procons will be an entertainment destination for kids and family to experience the world of their favorite Jungle Book characters. All of the adventure, fun and action kids experience through a screen will now be all around them soon—in breathtakingly realistic Jungle ways.” “We are excited to partner with Chiliad in this endeavor and expect this theme park agreement to significantly boost our other licensing and merchandising efforts worldwide and anticipate this as a step forward in creating immense opportunities and value to us,” Manoj further added.
