I have to say I didn't figure out this was a lake immediately (just looked like some green painted concrete) :lol:

The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?

Wow that small lake is where Incredible Hulk came from!

So you guys actually spend a whole days on parks like this? That's...well... Unfortunate. I've heard that locals got insane about those dancing classes at the parks in Shanghai because they got too annoying at night :lol:

I've gone pantless!

And I though a standard Chance toboggan was wrong to begin with. This report is awesome!

Robb and Elissa got us to sometimes three parks in one day, which was basically - Get into
the park, find the credits. Do the credits. Leave for the next park.

They did give us extra time in some of the more interesting parks, that had other
(working) attractions to ride. A few. But not all of them.
Talk is Cheap :idea: Action is Pricele$$

With sometimes meant. "Larry go run in that direction for 10 minutes as far as you can and report back when you find the coaster." Ah good times!

I realized the other day that I still have TONS of footage of coasters from this trip I never posted, but this update has reminded me why I haven't. I'm not even sure I can tell some of this China crap apart! I had to do a double take as to what some of these parks and rides even were! lol

I wrote the book about donkeys!

The lines in DLP was the one big negative when we visited.

Didn't get on TOT at all and Rock and Roller kept breaking down. Main reason I got on as many rides as I did was getting on a few close to the end of the night.
