TR: Tianhe Park and South China Botanical Garden 4/23/11

Postby The Angry Darren Mullins » Sun Apr 24, 2011 11:06 am

On April 23, 2011, I visited Guangzhou in southern China to go to three parks. My first park was Tianhe Park, which is home to four coasters. The Spinning Coaster is like about 20 other rides I have been on. The powered Gliding Dragon is something I have done in many parks in Asia. The Shenzhou Airship is a fun ride and is like the spinning coaster that used to be at the South China Mall in Dongguan. This may even be the same coaster. The Fruit Worm Coaster at Tianhe Park is a fun ride for the family. I walked around and tried to find the non-spinning mouse coaster listed on RCDB. If it was there, it was invisible.

My next park was the South China Botanical Garden. This place has an amusement area with a mouse coaster and a powered dragon coaster. The mouse coaster appears to be an expanded version of other mouse coasters I have ridden in China. It was fun. I took a few photos and went to my final park of the day.

My last park was Guangzhou Children's Park. There is one coaster here called the Fruit Worm Coaster. It is like the one I rode couple of years ago in Beijing at Sun Park. Adults are not allowed to ride the coaster at Guangzhou Children's Park. This is BS and I hope Mr. Norton pays a visit to Guangzhou Children's Park as the result of such a sicko ride policy.

They will not let adults on the coaster at Guangzhou Children's Park. I hope Mr. Norton comes here.

Nice report, Thanks for sharing.

It is kind of frustrating that the policy from one park to another varies on the same coaster. Just something us coaster enthusiasts have to live with!

Who is Mr. Norton?

Norton's Auctioneers specialize in selling off defunct parks. Whenever park closes, Norton comes in to sell off the rides and other equipment in the park. Norton is sort of the Grim Reaper for amusement parks.
