Ironically the park's Chinese name "成功大广场", translates roughly to "Success Plaza".
Construction on the Great Mall of China started between 2006 and 2009 with a building that flanked the Tongyan Expressway (通燕高速). By October 2010 the original building was completed and work started on a larger building to the south. In 2013 roller coaster parts started arriving to the east. The parts disappeared in 2016. In 2017 demolition was underway with the the second building being down in early May. Later that year the original building was reduced to a single wall which was still present in 2019.
