TR: Sun Island, Foshan Amusement Park and Zhongshan Park


Recommended Posts

I woke up very early on November 28, 2010 to go to Guangzhou and Foshan in China's Guangdong province. I took the train from Hong Kong to Guangzhou and then took the metro up to Renhe station, which is close to Sun Island Amusement Park. When I got to Sun Island, I knew before going onto the parking lot that this park had closed a long time ago. The entrance still stands, but inside the park appears to be gardens (where they are growing vegetables) and people appear to be living on the park grounds. Needless to say, my day was not off to a good start.

 

I then took the train to Foshan where I visited Leigang Park. Leigang Park was home to an alpine coaster as well as a small amusement area. It appears that both have been removed as I walked through the entire park and didn't see a sign of either. The park is still a quiet place to go and relax.

 

After Leigang Park, I went to Foshan Amusement Park. They have a wild mouse coaster and a kiddie coaster here. Both coasters were fun. There is also a ferris wheel, train ride, moon cars and even a large water park at Foshan Amusement Park. Admission was free with rides costing 10 yuan each.

 

After finishing at Foshan Amusement Park, I took a short cab ride to Foshan's Zhongshan Park. There are Zhongshan Parks all over China and they are large city parks. Some Zhongshan Parks have amusement areas. There is an amusement area in Foshan's Zhongshan Park. The mouse coaster here become my 666th coaster. That is an odd milestone, but one I have to mark. There is also a powered coaster here, a log flume and several other rides. Admission to Zhongshan Park is free.

 

I had a great time at the parks and I am happy that the ride ops allowed me to use my camera on the coasters. Too bad the ride ops on Zhongshan's flume wouldn't allow me to take the camera on the ride. I guess water and cameras do not mix. If you are ever in Foshan, check out these parks.

Here is Foshan Amusement Park. I have the feeling that not too many coaster nuts have heard of this place.

Here we have a ride called the Moon Cars. They are common at Chinese amusement parks.
