Since I have quite a few posts in this thread I decided to put links to all of the photo posts to make things easier:1. Hong Kong (beginnings), Macau, and Ocean Park2. Shenzhen and Happy Valley3. Hong Kong mini-update4. Shanghai5. Hong Kong big update6. Taipei, Taiwan7. Yangshuo, China8. Hong Kong Disneyland, Hong Kong9. Lotte World, Seoul10. Seoul, South Korea11. Tokyo, Japan12. Kyoto, Japan & a last day in Tokyo13. Universal Studios Singapore14. Singapore, Singapore
We all threw our cameras into a fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo since we were going on a lot of rides so I apologize in advance that I did not get many shots of the park itself. Hence mini TR. BUT I'm going to Happy Valley Shenzhen this weekend and possible Happy Valley Shanghai at the end of this month and I WILL get more photos there.
Anyways, Ocean Park was very fun. They didn't have much in the way of rides but what they did have was decent. Plus there was so much to do that we were never bored. Dragon was pretty painful and all of my friends (non-enthusiasts) hated it. The Mine Train was fun, and being so close to the edge of the mountain/cliffside was a definite plus. The drop tower was very good too.
The water rides were funny because you didn't actually get wet at all from any of the splashing that the boats made, just the massive amounts of water guns and sprinklers
As for the new B&M, it looks like it will be the best ride at the park when it finally opens. The ride looks finished but it wasn't open or testing. Granted, my view was obscured but the lift hill was topped and completed and it looked like all of the track was put on.
TPR's photo uploader never works for my photos so captions will be ABOVE the pictures
Stayed with my cousin for a few days before heading off to campus (studying abroad in Hong Kong)
