I don't even consider halfpipes as a coaster,
more of a recreation of the old ghetto Shwarzkopf swinging ships.
And god said, "Let there be, Behemoth!"

I need to do some orgiastic screaming. Or go on a TPR trip. Or both.

All you fun-having people tick me off! JK!! You all look like you are having a blast and I am sure I speak for many when I say "Wish I was there".

I could've sworn I saw this exact same mantra posted at Holiday World last year. Although, I did see Pat Koch trying to swipe Skip's self-esteem when he wasn't looking...!

Those sings are really funny, take your private thing with you when leaving! :lmao:
Like I would leave it there! They really need a new translator for the park. The coasters are looking awsome, but I'm a bit dissapoined that there was no theming at all. I would love to ride halfpipe someday! Great TR

Today was kind of a "Credit Whore Day" that started out at a really nice park!

Our first stop was Mysterious Island in Zhuhai. A nice little park with two coasters, one of them being an Intamin launched that while small in size, really kicked A$$!

We then headed on to Pearl Land also in Zhuhai which was a nice park, nothing amazing, maybe slightly on the ghetto side, but overall a good place to pick up 4 random coaster credits.

And then we ended our night with a small park called Amazing World we tried to go to last night, but was closed due to rain. Since it was not very far out of the way back to our hotel we decided to hit it again and tonight we were in luck! It's a mostly indoor place with a few outdoor rides much like Toverland! There was a custom Vekoma Roller Skater here (again, just like Toverland) and to some there was even a total of four credits!

Now some pictures....
We started at Mysterious Island...a little damp, but we were here for some filming so they would open the coasters for us anyway!
We arrive at the park about an hour before the public was allowed in. The Intamin Launch (called Sky Car) looks small, but man it was GREAT!
Track through the loop is like Coaster Porn.
Everyone ready to ride?
It basically has Storm Runner's top hat, although a little shrunk down.
All I see is trees and bush! (I like bush!)
And yes that bunny hop has some great airtime!
Sky Car + foliage.
Next up was the Screamin' Squirrel...this coaster was not quite as good as the Intamin.
The gimmick is you go in a straight line, then you flip upside down...rinse, repeat. It's rough, borning and pointless.
Is David's heart attack from the coaster or the 14th hamburger? You decide! =)
What's the one thing I like the best about mermaids in China?
Overall Mysterious Island was a really NICE park! Some great rides, good landscaping and theming. The park is only a few years old so as it fills it in should be even better!
The road to Pearl Land was almost like a credit in itself.
Now we are at Pearl was a little ghetto, but overall nice. By far not the worst park we visited on the trip.
Last time I checked "Crazy Horse" meant "strip club" so this place is "OK" by me!
The first coaster "Jet Coaster" had some bizarre looking trains.
It actually was a lot of fun!
David found a relative!
Next up was the kiddie...strange looking, but VERY smooth!
KidTums is all "C'mon mommy, do I *really* need to be riding all these Chinese death traps?"
She loved it!
You dirty, dirty whore!
"Hey Chris, is that a REAL space shuttle?"
The "Jungle Mouse" was quite twisty. I'm not sure I've ever seen a mouse with THAT many turns.
I'm CRRRAAAAAZZ Hippie-huggin-gonna-give-you-a-big-ass-splinter Tree Monster...gimme some spandex!
This is a world that Jahan knows nothing about!
This was called "Pearl Land's Screaming Loop."
It starts off with a pre-drop helix like Great Bear.
And then yeah, you are pretty much screaming in pain the whole time. Note that this *looks* like an Arrow/Vekoma looper, but it's just another Chinese knock off.
A Bag-o-Cubed Meat! Yummy!
Group Photo with random stautes!
Next we went over to Amazing World which is inside the South China's a giant indoor park with a Vekoma Roller Skater, much like Toverland.
This version is a custom one and it's really tall and very long. It's mostly indoors, but has a partial outdoor section.
Since this place wasn't on the original itinerary it was a BONUS CREDIT!!!
For those REAL Jeff Johnson credit whores there were a few other rides here that could be counted as a coaster with some stretch of the imagination.
This thing even had two tracks side by side.
"That's right bitches this is TWO credits!!!"
Or 12 credits for Jeff since each car has 6 seats.
This thing is almost more of a credit...
It's this kiddie spinning thing that moves along the track and is powered by drive tires. I can see some people counting this for sure, but for me, heck, I didn't even bother to ride them!
"Hi, my name is Bob and I *am* ...sad and pathetic!"
We ended the night with a takeover at McDonalds.
"We're not worthy! We're not worthy!"

Next up...more credit whore parks tomorrow!

OMG Kidtums is just WAY too cute. She's MADE for the camera! You should put her in modeling for like...catalogs or something ya know! She's just so photogenic!
How old is that park with the Intamin Launch? It looks pretty sweet!

I know quite a lot about Donkeys!

Great updates, awesome pictures and captions as always! Thanks for taking the time out to do these Robb, it is really appreciated. Especially for parks like these which I'm sure many of us have never seen/ heard of before.

Looks like you're having a great time so far and riding some great coasters. I think my favourite part about all of your far east TR's has to be the translations, they are almost 'Orgiastic'! Also, as others have said, Kidtums is so photogenic. The two pictures of her on the kiddie ride at Pearl Land are my favourite pictures of her yet, just love her expressions, sooo cute.

Hope the awesomeness continues for you all out there and I look forward to the future updates.

I wonder which is worse, a real Vekoma, or a Chinese knock-off?
