I loved it when they did the "lineup" to determine who would ride on the spaceship kiddie coaster based on size. I don't recall anybody being denied, though. It was also great how Robb and Elissa ensured that everyone would get the credits there.
Fun day at the park. This park looked nice and was pretty big (compared to most of the parks in China).. It was also a first encounter with extreme staggered opening times.. as in the SLC would not open that day untill early evening (if memory serves me right)
Waiting in line appeared to be a favorite passtime as the lines were verey long (as soon as rides opened). Very happy that we had some filming time on the biggest/most important coasters ;)
All in all: hot, fun day at the park ;)
i guess the rain dance worked.. there's some blue sky (which is apparently very unique in Beijing)
looks like we made it

nothing to see here
don't know what to say
thanks for an interesting experience
when in eijing.. you might as well check out the watercube...
I really cannot stand the new color schemes at this Happy Valley park. In my opinion, they contrast way too much with the theming, which really takes away from all the beautiful details. I feel like Crystal Wing's old colors were much more fitting and aesthetically pleasing.
But anyway, great pictures, Hanno! Thanks for sharing.
