I just got back from the Great Wall of China at Badaling and believe this ride to be a roller coaster. To get up to the wall you take the car up a lift hill and to descend to the bottom they hook several cars together and run them down the mountain.
A few points:
The cars run on a coaster style track.
There is someone in the front car who applies brakes to keep it from going too fast, but the cars run down the hill completely on gravity.
Here is a YouTube video! Let me know what you think! My credit count depends on you!
^Thanks Larry. I pretty much agree with your points and do consider it a coaster myself. I just thought it would be interesting to see what other enthusiasts think.
To help you make a decision here are a few pictures that I took. BTW does anyone know if this is listed on RCDB? I looked, but couldn't find it. If not I will email Duane to see why it isn't listed. Thanks!
Is it new? We were planning on heading over to the Mutianyu area of the great wall where they have a 'traditional' alpine slide. But knowing the true credit whore nature of some people on our China Trip this may now be a better alternative!
A few questions before I make the decision to change it...
- How long was the line for this? I know that Badaling is the most famous area and usually VERY crowded.
- Did you notice if small children were allowed on (aka kidtums)?
