The Great Wall of China and Terracotta warriors are now no longer only great things to see, but they can also be eaten - in chocolate.

Tourists and residents in Beijing are expected to visit the delicious park made of chocolate as the long-awaited Chocolate Wonderland opened to the public today.

The park displays the 5,000-year-old Chinese civilization, including the Great Wall of China and the grand cluster of terracotta warriors.

Walking through the lollipop jungle and being dazzled by the flowing chocolate waterfall, visitors will note that the chocolate-theme park brings Willy Wonka's exceptional chocolate factory back to life.

Located in northern Beijing near the Bird's Nest Stadium, the 20,000-square-meter Chocolate Wonderland features five temperature-controlled indoor venues. They are the World's Chocolate Hall, The Chocolate Theme Hall, the World Candy Hall, and two outdoor sites including the Sweet Shopping Street.

Two highlights of the chocolate show are the 10-meter long Great Wall, made of solid dark chocolate bricks stuck together, and the mini-army of 560 chocolate Terracotta Warriors.

The show used up to 80 tons of chocolate.

The park, which opens from today, will last three months. The first 500 visitors will get a chocolate brick as a gift. Visitors who come to park on Valentine's Day, which coincides with the first day of the Chinese New Year, will be offered some surprises, park officials promised.
