Photo TR: Jianghui Amusement Park 9/25/11

Postby The Angry Darren Mullins » Sun Sep 25, 2011 7:59 am

I woke up this morning and headed to Jiangmen in Guangdong in China. About a month ago, I learned of a park there called Jianghui Amusement Park. The park was not on the RCDB at the time I learned about it. The park is a wonderful traditional park that is, by Chinese standards, well-kept. The gondolas on the ferris wheel are new. There is a new kiddie ride there and most of the older rides look decent. There is a mouse coaster there that is like several others I have ridden. Most small parks in China just have a mouse coaster and nothing bigger. This is okay though as I love mouse coasters. There is also a powered coaster called Golden Dragon. The helix on Golden Dragon is taken at a decent speed. There is a nice log flume with the shortest flume boats I have ever seen. There is also a dark ride with dinosaurs (Cedar Fair doesn't have anything on the Chinese) and it cost only 5 yuan (75 cents) to ride through and look at dinosaurs, which is a much better value than the dinosaur attractions Cedar Fair has been building. There are two Jeff Johnson credits at Jianghui Amusement Park and other rides, including a Paratrooper and a moon cars ride. It is a very nice park that sits just outside of the city of Jiangmen and not far from Jiangmen's East Lake Park (Donghu Park).

All parks need one of these.

This Top Spin knockoff was a new ride.
Jianghui Paratrooper.jpg
I think this ride came from Australia. There was an advertisement on the arm of the ride for an Australian company.
Jianghui Games.jpg
This game stand was at the park.
Jianghui Dark Ride.jpg
A dinosaur overlooks Jianghui's dark ride. This one must have gotten loose from a Cedar Fair park.

I love these moon car rides.
Jianghui Jeff Johnson 1.jpg
The park had this Jeff Johnson credit.
Jianghui Jeff Johnson Credit 2.jpg
The park also had a second Jeff Johnson credit.

This flume ride has this smallest boats I have ever seen on a flume.

OMG! That top spin looks like it came straight out of RCT2!

I always love seeing parks like this.

That Topspin knockoff looks like it's missing two harnesses. They seem to have replaced them with...backpack straps?

China is indeed weird, but it is weird in a good way. Jianghui is in a beautiful location with a lot of trees and a lake. Locals probably do not even notice that Jianghui's mouse is the same as the one at the nearby East Lake Park.
