On August 16, 2012, I went to Zhengzhou to visit three parks there. It was National Roller Coaster Day in America, but since I was in China, I decided to celebrate it at some Chinese parks. My first park of the day was People's Park. There is a loopscrew here and a mouse. The mouse was closed, but I rode the loopscrew. It was fun until it hit the corkscrew and then it was a nightmare.
My second park of the day was Zhengzhou Zoo. There is a small area with rides here and two coasters. The mouse is easily the best mouse coaster I have ever ridden. I got a good, violent does of airtime on a short drop close to the end of the ride. There is also a kiddie coaster here that is a mirror image of the one at Haibin Park in Zhuhai. Neither of the coasters here are on the RCDB or ACE coaster census at the time of me posting this trip report.
My third park of the day was Century Amusement Park. I arrived to find a new spinning mouse coaster in the testing phase. This coaster is also not on RCDB or the ACE census. This makes 118 coasters I have found before ACE or RCDB could find them. There is also a smaller mouse coaster. It is typical of what many Chinese parks. I waited 30 minutes to ride this as they only allowed one person per car (each car can hold two people). There are many other rides here too and a lot of room to grow. If I could own any park, I would own this one because of how much open space is in the park. There is no room to expand the park's boarders, but they could easily add 25-30 coasters here. There is a double loop coaster called Roller Coaster. It is a twin of the one at the now defunct Honey Lake Park in Shenzhen. It is intense and a lot of fun. It isn't a rough ride at all. I had a great time. All three parks were a blast. I have now ridden 785 coasters.
I have arrived at People's Park in Zhengzhou.
This view greeted me once I was inside the park.
This loopscrew was smooth until it hit the corkscrew. Then it was pure hell.
The mouse was not open today.
This monorail was not running or I would have taken a spin.
This is People's Park's Ferris Wheel.
I got four rides, including both coasters in this shot.
This is a ride through haunted house.
This flume ride entertains kids who visit People's Park.
The bumper cars at People's Park were great fun.
My second place to visit today was the Zhengzhou Zoo. Let's see what is inside.
They have a lake in the zoo.
The zoo also has a carousel.
Here are some of the other rides at the zoo.
This Ferris wheel looks nice.
This is the best mouse coaster I have ridden. I got a good dose of airtime on a very small drop. This mouse is also not on RCDB at the time of me posting this.
There is also a kiddie coaster at the zoo.
My third park of the day is Century Amusement Park.
I have just entered Century Amusement Park.
This mouse coaster is like 30 others I have ridden.

The flume at Century Amusement Park has a big drop. I felt some water hit me from standing on the midway. The drop creates a big splash.
The carousel here looks traditional.
Here is a kiddie ride for the little ones.
Spinning Coaster is a new ride here.
It is so new that it is not open yet.
You can see the sandbags in the car.
This is one of the largest Ferris Wheels I have ever seen in my life.
