World of Warcraft and StarCraft Theme Park to Open in China

G4TV reports that an amusement park based on the video games World of Warcraft and Starcraft will be opening in China, with the only-in-China-would-they-give-this-English-name JoyWorld. Why isn’t a Blizzard Theme Park opening in South Korea, where Starcraft is king and there are entire cable networks dedicated to the real-time strategy game? Probably because Korea doesn’t have, you know, billions of people that could potentially make the game a household name.
