First came the Angry Birds Theme Park. Now, for the second year in a row, a theme park made entirely from chocolate will again open its doors in Shanghai, CNNGo reports.

The park, which opened to much fanfare last year (see images below), used 80 tons of Belgian chocolate to create sculptures such as the terracotta warriors and the Great Wall. The exhibit drew roughly a half a million visitors, according to CNNGo.

This year, the park is relocating to Shanghai's Himalayas Art Museum, and will feature some 200 pieces of chocolate art. Chocolatiers will also be on hand to make everything from truffle chocolate to wine chocolate; visitors will also be able to create their own chocolate.

The exhibit will be open from December 16 to February 19, 2012.
