Photo TR: Zhengzhou Parks (August 16, 2012)

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.

The loops on Roller Coaster are very intense.


It's kinda weird to see loops that vaguely look like based on Schwarzkopf-design with an Arrow/Vekoma tracksystem...

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Once again, great Photo TR. I love seeing these little Chinese Parks that nobody else visits. Keep posting Photo TRs from these places.
Just because yours is smaller doesn't make you less of a man. Unless we're talking about your brain.
