This TR is awesome. I must say, Hong Kong Disneyland just doesn't get it done for me. I know it hasn't been around long, but it just seems to be lacking so much. I feel immersed in another world at WDW, but HKD just seems to have a lot of open spaces.

2 + 2 = donkey!

thats weird that you love the mine train because Rob hates everything about it except for the view.

Did anyone else notice what appeared to be Mickey and Minnie statues in that one Pearl Land walkway photo?

Noticed them too ! They were like every 10 feet or so ! It looked like an RCT park with bad theming.

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

Ha! With $700mil being dumped into rehab and new attractions, they could dump some of that money into a rehab of The Dragon.

Ya know, repaint, clean up..... maybe new trains perhaps, maybe, possibly. Or at least ones with NO OTSR!

Beware of the freeze-dried donkey!

was it not repainted about 2 years ago?

that new coaster looks quite odd from the diagram.
any sign of the Water Soaker Coaster?

Awesome TR btw :) looking forward to the Thailand section

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

After my weekend I`m ready for the last update of our China/Thailand trip.

Part 4: Parks of Bangkok

Part 4.1: Dream World Bangkok


Coming to Bangkok in march/april is quiet hard, because it`s about 100 degrees fahrenheit (38 celsius) and it`s hot, hot, hot.
Dream World is a little bit out of the inner city, but with a taxi easy to reach.
We were amazed about this little park, because we didn`t expect a nice themed park overall.
The park features three coasters, nothing special at all: a swinging coaster by Vekoma, which is really rough as hell, a kiddie Junior Nessie coaster, and an indoor coaster called "space mountain" by Vekoma.

The park also features a medium size raft ride, a smaller splash, a nice walk trough haunted house, a special effects stunt show, some flat-rides and a big area where you can make "pre-fixed" pictures.

So the park is nothing special at all, but you feel like in a real park with some nice walkways, some theming and a lot of flowers and plants.

We enjoyed our day and we really liked Dream World.

this park was really nice, but the only downside were the toilets!
