Ocean Kingdom in China

Postby Gutterflower » Wed Dec 01, 2010 4:45 am

Hey guys
I thought this park deserves its own topic as news starts to trickle in following their big press release over the weekend.

Image

This is a new park to be built in Guangdon province China. it is being developed by the same people who built Chimelong Paradise which itself is known as one of the better Chinese parks from the trip reports I have read.
The park is currently confirmed to have both a Mack Watercoaster and a Mack Supersplash. They have also announced the worlds longest Wooden Rollercoaster and a giant ferris wheel. The park will be part of a resort which includes a hotel and safari park. This complex in turn will be part of the new Hengqin Island redevelopment project.

This park will not be that far from Hong Kong's Ocean Park and Disneyland so will add some interesting competition to an area which already has several major theme parks.

Ocean Kingdom is in red on the left with Disneyland and Ocean Park circled on the right. The project is not currently expected to open until 2013 but pictures, maps and all sources can be found below.

Interesting!

I don't think Chimelong ever put in the Mack Watercoaster they had bought it is possible that this new park is getting that credit!

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

I like that picture of that SuperSplash. China is just getting more and more crazy. And that woodie. longest in the world according to RCDB.
I quit my job at the helium factory last week...I refused to be spoken to in that tone!

Longest woody in the world could be a bad idea unless it's intamin pre-fab of course, I know it's atwork but damn the woody looks as tall as I305 this better be Intamin or the maintence on that thing may bankrupt the park lol

Am I the only one who thought "Is that a Supersplash next to DCA's Grizzly Peak?!"?

Anyway, I gotta admit this place looks pretty sweet already, and I'm now intensely curious about the whole "world's longest wood coaster" thing...
Ignore the screaming in the woods...

Everything is fine.

It's funny, that's actually the exact same thing i first thought when i heard the statistic that the Ferris Wheel is going to be 689 feet tall. Judging by that the center point has to be at least 350" feet in the air, and the peak of the woody, considering the distance behind, looks like it would be roughly 275-310 feet tall. But i know it's just a mock up, I'm probably wayyyyy over thinking it.




...i am such a nerd...hahaha

Why do I still have a donkey title???

^Remember what we all learned from IAAPA 2010?

Concept Art does not always equal the real thing.
