Happy Valley Chengdu Expansion 2017

Postby Gutterflower » Mon Sep 26, 2016 4:44 pm

New for 2017 Happy Valley in Chengdu is expanding with a new Silk Road area of the park. The huge expansion will add two new coasters to the parks lineup. A B&M mini dive machine and a mini coaster.

This expansion was announced a while back but there's been little sign of anything beyond land clearing so far. Now the construction fences have gone up and they include new renderings of how the new area will look.

The Dive Machine is an interesting addition seemingly combine the layout style of the larger dive machines but with the track and trains of the mini dive machines.
Both rides will certainly compliment the parks already decent line up (Mega Lite anyone?)and the themeing looks pretty good too. Just to note the wild mouse in the images is already at the park, it's just receiving a retheme.

Wow! This looks absolutely great!

Heh, just when everyone keeps saying that 2017 is a bad year for coasters...
Oh well, I guess I won't be riding any coasters any time soon... Within the next 10 minutes anyways. :airtime: :airtimer:

If only most parks had the same money as China to get two 'major' coasters in a year.

I know quite a lot about Donkeys!

It's a horrible year in the US. Worldwide there are plenty.

Yeah, indeed. Just hope they get treated properly.
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?
The G force is strong with this one.

The GCi has begun to rise. No sign of the B&M yet.
