Here are some pics I took today. I only did a very quick visit as I had expected the place to be packed. Anyway managed to get a new credit which doesn`t happen very often out here.
Was a bit unsure about taking pics. I took stills on my video camera and only started when I saw someone else with a video camera. Got a few funny look off security but was not approached. I will head back with my family soon and will go on all the rides and try and get more pics.
Overall I was very impressed, but can imagine it being a nightmare when busy.

The pics look a bit funny because the lighting was really strange and I have had to brighten them up a bit.

Enjoy

These greeter girls look very similar to the ones in Tokyo, if I remember correctly.

Great pictures! While the whole place looks really cool, it looks pretty deserted.

I will be there in January, so I can do a full trip report on a possible much busier park day, as the park will have been open a good 5-6 months by then! =)

Being both a video game fan and a roller coaster enthusiast, I must say that Spin Gear looks amazing! Of course, an Intamin accelerator would have been a better Sonic coaster: It's fast, the way up represents Sonic's rise to fame, and the way down represents the spiraling nosedive in quality. Still, the park looks like a really good version of Disney Quest.
Wood-7 Steel-57 Liquid-2 Total-66 (CoasterFanatics banner stopped working for some reason)
Top 5 Steel: 1. Millennium Force - 2. Maverick - 3. California Screamin - 4. Raging Bull - 5. Space Mountain: De la Terre a la Lune
Top 5 Wood: 1. Viper - 2. Blue Streak - 3. Screamin Eagle - 4. American Eagle - 5. Mean Streak (With the only other one Ive ridden being Gwazi. I seriously need to ride more wooden coasters)

I teach at the school of donkey!

Quoted for truth. This is completely right.

Can I park my donkey here?
