I visited three parks over the last five days. I would have visited four of them, but one park had been closed and the rides removed. Here is a rundown of the parks.

Universal 100 Movie Theme Park: This is not owned by Universal, but it is a large park and very nice. It is nicely themed and has a lot of theater based attractions and shows. Rides are scattered throughout the park, including Mine Truck, which is a knockoff of a Vekoma Mine Train. It is an okay ride, but I think the park should have a more thrilling coaster and at least two large coasters. There is a flying theater ride and the film is all in English. It is about a problem with the water supply. I will not give too much away here.

White Sand Gate Park: This park is on the opposite side of Haikou and tourist bus 4 begins at one park and terminates at the other. I was here last year, but the big coaster has been replaced with a new family coaster called Family Roller Coaster and a new mouse coaster called Happy Roller Coaster has opened as well. I rode both coasters, took some photos and left. One odd ride I saw here was a Mini Top Spin.

Cunjin Park: This place is a city park on the Chinese mainland in Zhanjiang. It has a small corner with rides, including a Fruit Worm Coaster. It replaced a jungle mouse. I rode the coaster, too a few photos and left.

This trip was fun, but my first point of interest was in the town of Leizhou at a small place called Children's Playground. The reason for this was I discovered a coaster here (on Google), it was my 500th coaster found before ACE or RCDB. Sadly, the park did not pass inspection and everything there is gone. At least Fruit Worm Coaster at Cunjin brought my total to 501 coasters discovered before ACE or RCDB. I have now ridden 1208 coasters and I have visited 613 different parks.
