TR: Tangxia Guanguang Park & Tangxia Culture Park

Postby The Angry Darren Mullins » Sun Jun 26, 2011 9:03 pm

On June 26, I ventured out to Tangxia, which is part of Dongguan in Guangdong province. My destination was Tangxia Guanguang Park. I first learned about this park when I saw a log flume while riding the train from Shenzhen to Guangzhou. I searched for the park on Google Maps and found the park I had seen from the train. As it turns out, the park I saw while riding the train was not Tangxia Guanguang Park, but it was Tangxia Culture Park. Tangxia Guangguang Park is located very close to Tangxia Culture Park. It is a 20 minute walk between the two parks. I visited Tangxia Guanguang Park first and found they had a powered coaster called Dragon Roller Coaster and a mouse coaster called Forest Squirrel. This park also features a disko ride, ferris wheel and several other rides. There is also a reptile zoo. The rides look somewhat new or they are just well-kept. I am guess the rides are new as small Chinese parks usually do not do a good job on the upkeep of the rides. Tangxia Guanguang Park is connected to Tangxia Culture Park by a ropeway. I didn't use the ropeway to go to Tangxia Culture Park. I walked between the two. Outside of Tangxia Guangguang Park, I walked past an area that had carnival games. This is something I haven't seen a lot of in Asia.

At Tangxia Culture Park, I found a SBNO log flume and a few other rides. There was no coaster there.

I like living in Asia because it helps me to find coasters that are not listed on the Roller Coaster Database. From visiting the parks or researching them online, I have found nearly 50 coasters that weren't listed on the RCDB or ACE's Census.

Are those real rifles on those carny games? Look pretty ghetto.

"Lieutenant Crunch?"

I think they are just BB guns. The inside of the park was decent enough, but outside was pretty ghetto.
