Yeah, Gravity Max was down. And Fancy Balls too, can you believe it?
It was a bummer when I saw Gravity Max on the website maintenance list before our trip. Ironically, I saw that the Farglory Ocean credit would be up during the same websurfing session, this after seeing it scheduled for maintenance during our trip when I checked several weeks earlier. Half the problem is trying to read the maintenance schedules, if you can find them. The Chinese characters don't exactly translate to the same name as in RCDB so you're not sure which ride they're talking about. Take Gravity Max. The Chinese characters are: 搶救地心 and that translates into "Rescue Center of the Earth" in Google Translate! Fortunately there was a picture in that case, but others were more challenging.
Well, that Farglory credit (the characters for which - 小藍鯨歷險記 - translate to Xiaolan Jing Adventures, not Wally Whale's Deep Sea Adventure) required an extra flight, so I guess it all evens out. Like I said, we'll be back. And another very unique Vekoma was up and running (albeit briefly), and that's in a coming update.
Great stuff! I love how many places have a licensing agreement with Disney
How was the food at the parks?
For some reason, we were having big breakfasts and big dinners and just didn't eat much in the parks themselves. Some of it was nasty, as in, this society eats parts of the chicken that you and I might normally throw away (remember Mr. Chicken from the TPR China trip in '08?). We didn't see that specifically, but things like bones in a breaded chicken patty, yuck. Tea and coffee houses in the parks, however, had amazing desserts, and we did have another really nice dinner besides DinTaiFung (see Day One) that I'll report on. But overall we didn't sample a lot of park food.

Unfortunately no, but I do have a daytime shot in the next update. You're right, he is very merchandisable.
Thanks for following, everyone.
