Happy Valley Shenzhen: update on Shangrila Snowfield

Postby Saxi » Mon Jan 24, 2011 7:32 am

Hi there. I am currently on business trip in Shenzhen but due non-working on Sunday (01/23/2011) I wanted to check the progress of the new S&S coaster "Shangrila Snowfield". Let the pictures speak for themselves ...
Personal remark: if you want a very good Hotel close to "Happy Valley Shenzhen" then try Crowne Plaza Shenzhen which is in 2 minutes walking distance to the park and also in 3 minutes walking distance to "Window of the World".

On to the pictures:

Very cool! Thanks for the pix!

The one thing I remember the most about this park was Elissa and I had to take a "defensive riding class" before riding the SLC! It was quite funny actually!

Thank you for the update. I don't know if I'll ever get the chance to ride this , but the S&S coasters being built in China would sit at the top of my most-wanted list. Are these parks on the interary for the TPR China trip?

Looks like a lot of progress has been made! And I think I should have taken a "defensive riding class" before riding Infusion at Blackpool Pleasure beach. That was one mean coaster! :lol:

^^Happy Valley Shenzhen is on the TPR 2012 China Trip!

I haven't been following this one too much but hasn't it been under construction for quite some time now? I really thought they'd be track complete by now.

^Yeah, the profiles on some of these hills are pretty warped!(Great shots, thanks!)

That 2012 China trip is going to be ferociously epic...

Is it me, or does the support in the background look really low? It must just be the pic, but it doesn't look like the train would make it through there, lol.
