Thanks for the pictures Erik!

Anyone know if the shooting dark ride is one of the same by the company that did Toy Story Mania and Maus au Chocolat or is it a Chinese rip off?

I've gone pantless!

Maurer and Vekoma are the only two non chinese ride manufacturers in this park as far as I know; so I assume the ride is made by a chinese manufacturer.

Awesome photo report; thanks so much! IIRC, this park was supposed to have some kind of Harry Potter rip-off attraction. Was there any sign of that?

Love the environmental work on the mine train and dino-themed splash-down boat rides!

"The Stress Express" :lmao: :lmao: :lmao:

(Although, to be fair, I finally got a chance to try out the new Vekoma harnesses on Carowinds' Carolina Cobra, and they made a HUGE difference.

Those statues on the boat ride are insane. The drop looks pretty good - so does the pterodactyl!

OK Sooooooo did they build a knock of star flyer is that actually the real deal?

Also I love the colors of their sky loop... Nice color combo and it really pops.

The Mine Train and the Escape from dino island splash ride look great as well....

Last observation.... what is up with the Insanely huge entry buildings and buildings throughout the park... the park didn't look packed at all but those buildings are huge. you said the 3d ride had SIX platforms... wow...
Leviathan - "I am a B&M, I am clearly not the father. I305 is not my child."
Millennium Force - "Yes he is Maury... I am 100% sure"
Maury - "Leviathan ..... in the case of possessed juvenile I305 .... you are not the father!
Maverick - (giggles with guilty grin)"

Donkeys give me orgiastic scream!

Looks like a great park!

Also good to see that here are "original" rides that were imported. But I fear that we see a "Made in China"-Skywheel soon - a real dilemma for Euro-/US-manufacturers: Making business with the risk of rides getting copied... :?r

Edit Oct 10th 2012: And now it happened - A knock-off SkyWheel. Source: RCDB
