Increased Tourist Numbers Expected with Completion of the Western 3rd Round City Highway, Connecting to Qin E-Pang Palace

XI’AN, China, Jan. 4 /Xinhua-PRNewswire/ — Dark Dynamite Inc. (BULLETIN BOARD: DKDY) (”DDI”) announces that the construction of the Western 3rd Round City Highway (the ”3rd Highway”) in Xi’an is expected to be completed in early 2006. The completed 3rd Highway is expected to bring in more tourists to the Theme Park of the Qin E-Pang Palace (”E-Pang Palace”) in the coming years.

The 3rd Highway is invested in by the Xi’an Government, with a total investment of RMB500 million (equal to US$61.7 million). The total length of the 3rd Highway is 18.42 km, which includes 7 large crossroads and 2 bridges. The 3rd Highway is expected to be completed early 2006, and to be opened free of charge. After the completion of the 3rd Round City Highway, traveling time between the city center and the Theme Park of E-pang Palace will be reduced from 30 minutes to around 20 minutes, thus greatly benefiting tourists for traveling to the E-Pang Palace, as well as promoting the attractiveness of the E-Pang Palace for tourists.

Since the is Theme Park located at the centre of many historic sites of Xi’an city, such as the famous Emperor Qin’s Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses Museum, the Mausoleum of Emperor Qin, Huaqing Hot-springs, and Fa’men Temple. After the completion of the 3rd Highway, tourists will have easy access to the Theme Park while visiting other historical sites. The Theme Park is estimated to become one of the main tourism destinations among travel agencies due to its distinctive Qin cultural palaces and convenient traffic conditions, which is estimated to bring an extra 10,000 tourists, as well as an increase in income of RMB350,000 (equal to US$43,210) per month.

The Xi’an tourism market saw 650,000 overseas tourists, and 20.84 million domestic tourists traveling to Xi’an in 2004, with increase rates of 93% and 29.1% respectively comparing with those of the previous year. The total revenue of the Xi’an tourism industry was RMB15.44 billion (equal to US$1.9 billion) in 2004, which includes foreign exchange of US$330 million, with respective increase rates of 45.1% and 130%.

The tourism infrastructure in Xi’an includes 20 large scenic spots, 9 AAAA-class scenic spots, 72 star-class hotels, which include 4 five-star hotels and 14 four-star hotels. The booming Xi’an tourism market offered a great opportunity for the further development of the Theme Park of the E-Pang Palace.

”Since our Theme Park is located in the suburbs of Xi’an City, traffic has been one of the main problems affecting the development of the Theme Park in the past. With the completion of the 3rd Highway, there will be five city buses shuttling from Xi’an downtown areas to the Theme Park every 15 to 30 minutes from 06:00 to 23:00. Tourists will be able to access to our Theme Park in about 20 minutes from downtown areas hereinafter,” said Mr. Lei Ming, Chairman and President of Dark Dynamite Inc. ”I believe that the Theme Park of Qin E-Pang Palace will become one of the best leisure locations for citizens and tourists in Xi’an under the new convenient traffic conditions.
