Review March 04, 2014

What's your order, sir?

I'd like to have a little bit of Disneyland, mixed with chunks of Universal Studios and a portion of SeaWorld, a big portion of SeaWorld, please! Mix it really well. I want to see you mixing it. For the topping I take a bit of Atlantis Dubai, and please also add some fluffy animal characters on top. No spices.

Upsize, sir?

Yes, upsize, of course, don't you know who you are talking to?

Chimelong Ocean Kingdom is spectacular, well-executed, and equipped with quality rides and animal exhibits. It's a gift to the locals, but on the global comparison it's just another copy-and-paste theme park experience, albeit with an impressive budget.

Construction Update September 26, 2013

Had the chance to visit the park while still under construction. Didn't get the permission to take photos. Huge whale shark landmark (beautiful!), lots of rides and shows in the making (exciting!), yet too early to say if this will be a great one! Will check again in summer 2014.
