Photo TR: Shijiazhuang Botanical Garden (October 6, 2011)


Recommended Posts

I went to the Shijiazhuang Botanical Garden yesterday and found two more roller coasters to add to the RCDB. I know about Roller Coaster, a loop and single corkscrew that is like one I found at Shuilianshan Amusement Park a month or so ago. This ride was as rough as the one at Shuilianshan. The botanical garden is a huge place with a lot of natural beauty. There are many plants and trees, a lake and a large amusement area. I decided to walk through the whole amusement area as I was certain that, with the way I have been finding coasters here in China and the fact that the ride offering at this place was so large, that there would be another coaster. I was right. I found a mine train coaster that is like the ones I rode at Beijing Shijingshan Park and Sun Park in Beijing. This coaster is basically an expanded Wacky Worm.

I was almost done with my walk through the rides area when I found a mouse coaster. This is a Chinese built mouse that appears to be a knock-off of a mouse built by a Japese company. Once again, I had ridden this design before at SunPark in Beijing and at Laodong Park in Dalian, China. I took some photos of other rides and some of scenery at the garden and left. This place is well worth checking out.

Here is what part of the garden looks like.

This boat takes guests for a nice ride on the lake.

This serves as the garden's carousel.

The flume ride here is hidden by a fake rock mountain.

The ferris wheel is huge.

I thought the outside of this walk-through was interesting.

The mine train featured many turns.

Here is the helix on Roller Coaster. This ride is painful.
