Review

The oldest of the four Happy Valley parks (Shanghai, Beijing, Chengdu, being the other three) consists of the usual Disneyland borrowings and is the poorest of the family.

My personal highlight was the river rapids ride featuring super-cold, high-pressure water jets hitting people's faces with such force that it resembles more a war scene than a family outing. The buttons to release the water jets are pressed by slap-happy fellow Chinese onlookers and what you encounter here really looks mean. Have a look at the photos below! The best thrill ride is the yellow inverted roller coaster, however the park lacks a real centerpiece like the Atlantis 'flying coaster' which crowns Beijing's newer Happy Valley park.

It's another theme park with lots of theming, but without the genuine passion for building theme parks.
