Time for Day 1 of this trip.

The following park has been on my wish list ever since i knew it was being built (and especially when it opened)
This trip gave me the chance to visit the park and not having to worry about how to get there, hotels and possible stress due to crowd levels and getting all the coasters in.

The park i'm talking about...

Rainbow Magicland.

It reminded me a lot of a park in the Orlando area and it could use a bit more shade, but with a coaster like Shock.. who cares?? Time to ride and have some fun :)

Here's a few pictures from that day

Something about this park just made it seem EXACTLY like the Chinese Happy Valley's. Like the theming looks impressive and amazing, but there's just something wrong about it when you get closer.

Oh well, Shock was AWESOME. Probably the best new coaster I've ridden in a while!

Can't wait till the park gets some shade!

I was 'shock'ed at the detail in the theme, even if it is a little whack. Nice pics as always.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Next day we went to Fiabilandia.

This park was a nice fun surprise to me. Home to an impressive wacky worm and one of the better spinners out there (Elissa might disagree)

Anything else to say? Place looked clean, looked like they had done some updates recently (entrance area). It was a nice couple of hours ;)

Spacemouse.. interesting name

But it was possible to get a good spin

Fiabilandia was a very cute children's park. KT insisted that we ride the Wacky Worm and Wacky Mine Train several times each! She especially loved that the Wacky Worm had a pink train!

I liked that park, they were building the new entrance when we where there last year. I mostly remember this park by their coasters and their do it yourself pizza and popcorn vending machine, and the weird version of a powered aqua-trax. Did they still have the bughouse of death?, all happy colour, but death bugs, made me a bit sad.
