Went there during Chinese New Year and luckily it wasn't too packed so we had time to try all the rides. The train with a wooden structure is a potential deadly hasard. The train is litterally lifting off the rails and falling back on during the ride. It will surely totally fly out one day and kill people. The facility... More

Its a nice themepark for adults, with cool rollercoaster and attractions. When I went only 2 rollercoasters where close due to maitenance. As I went on a Friday I expected it to be crowded, but...

Visited this park on 14 of November. Unfortunately a lot of cool roller coasters are closed. Be careful with water attractions - we were almost all wet.

Unbellivable experience. Very well orgnised, quite affordable and pleasant. Can spend full day there without any trouble. Worth the 230 rmb asked. Beawar for locals that the yearly ticket ( unlimited) being only at 450, if you intend to go even 2 times the yearly ticket is worth. The parc is meant for adults and teanagers rather than kids which... More

It's a very nice theme park with lots of rides, but be careful when you exit the theme park - there might be scammers in costumes to grab you and force you to take pictures with them to get money. Best to run once you see them

Park is older, but many interesting and exciting atractions. And there is new part with waterpark. It is perfect, many exciting slides. You must pay extra entrance fee to waterpark, but after it you can come back and enjoy rides.
