World Chocolate Wonderland

Dubbed the world's first chocolate theme park," World Chocolate Wonderland (世界巧克力梦公园) will showcase more than 200 chocolate art pieces over 3,500 square meters in Shanghai's Himalaya Art Museum from December 16 to February 19, 2012.

Shanghai is the second stop for the traveling chocolate spectacular. Its debut show was held in Beijing in Janurary 2010, which ran for 73 days and attracted almost half a million visitors. The awe-inspiring chocolate exhibits drew inspiration from various cultures around the globe.

Signature pieces include Bumblebee from Transformers, Shanghai's Huangpu River (imagine that with chocolate), the Bund's architecture, Terracotta Warriors and LV handbags.

However, the organizer did not disclose exactly how many chocolatiers were involved in the production of the exhibits or who they are. All we know is these items were made by dozens of chocolate masters.

Besides chocolate art pieces, the indoor theme park will also invite chocolatiers to make different kinds of chocolate on the spot, from milk chocolate to truffle chocolate, or even wine chocolate. Visitors will also have an opportunity to make their own mix of cocoa, milk and sugar under the instruction of professionals.
