“Decent rides and seemingly well maintained.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2013 via mobile

Expect long lines, but the park does have a good assortment of rides and shows.

Its no Disney World or Univeral, but it is a nice distraction in Shanghai.

Remember to avoid the fake taxi drivers at the train station and exit.

“Unhappy Valley”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2013

Lots of the rides were closed, there were long lines for those that were open, with no protection from the sun while we waited. It was dirty, with rubbish and empty plastic bottles thrown all over the place, including in the water raft ride. We were all really disappointed and would not recommend it to anyone.

“Lovely park but very exposed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2013

This is lovely park with a great wooden coaster called Fireball. Excellent views of this across the lake. Some other good coasters including the Mine Train and MegaLite. Quite a lot of Woking as it goes in a circle round the lake and very little shade so feels very exposed to the sun and it was very hot when I was there. Hardly any trees in certain areas, unlike other Chinese parks and lots of concrete. Refreshments good but very cold bottles of water in short supply.
