Drink the water but don't eat the ice must not apply to China as it does to Mexico.

Oh, it does. We discourage people from getting ice in their drinks here.

In places like our Marriott hotel restaurant or a legit chain restaurant it would be fine because they will have a water purification system, but when at parks, you only drink bottled sodas and you shouldn't get ice in your drinks.

The shirt only cost $1, so I only slightly overpaid.

The best thing about TPR is the donkeys.

Cost efficient solution to on-board audio. No loss of capacity either.
Been you to have any spike, man?

More China Trip Photos...

Image
Today was Happy Valley Beijing!!!

Image
Our day at Happy Valley Beijing starts out with ERT and filming in Crystal Wings!

Image
We're all lined up on the exit side getting ready for some ERT!

Image
We also had ERT on the 100%, totally legit, never-been-so-happy-in-my-life-to-see-a-REAL Vekoma SLC!

Image
Real Vekoma SLC? LOVE IT!!!!

Image
"We love REAL Vekomas!"

Image
This model has seen better days! Lol

Image
Vekoma mine train credit!!!

Image
Although, the ride seems to be called Jungle Racing... But whatever! Lol.

Image
The theming looks great!

Image
"We just paid 90 cents for a bottle of Coke... Suck it, Six Flags!!!"

Image
Has to be the best themed B&M flyer anywhere!

And here is video proof!


Image
This ones name is "Quick snack"

Image
"Cats are friends, not food."

Image
It's so nice to be at a REAL park!

Image
I love vomiting statues!

Image
Virgin Forest??? Well, this is Happy Valley! :)

Image
In most Chinese bathrooms, toilet paper is NOT included in the stalls. You either have to bring your own, or some of them have rolls on the wall and you have to pre-determine the size of your dump and how much you'll need before you go in!

Image
Oh, and most of the toilets look like this.

Image
Yay! We are back at DisneySea!

Image
I'm not exactly sure what this is!!!

Image
The English translation of the midway games are awesome!!!

Image
In China, Piers is his own attraction!

Image
OMG! Look at the line for the B&M flyer now! Good thing we had ERT!!!

Image
Wait... There's more! Wow!

Image
The B&M looks impressive, though!

Image
"Cats are friends, not food!"

Image
Just met Chinese coaster enthusiast "Lance" who is a big fan of TPR!

Image
Fun day at Happy Valley Beijing!

Image
After Happy Valley, we made a quick stop at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Park.

Image
Some of the signage has not really been kept up.

Great update. Yay for real Vekomas!

Not sure what I'd be more excited about if I was there. My Crystal Wings credit or my first "squatting toilet" credit.

Interesting and informative. Thank you.
