Photo TR: Tiexi Park (August 2, 2012)


Recommended Posts

I went to Shandong province on Thursday of this week to visit Tiexi Park. I arrived to find a very nice city park with four rides, including a large steel coaster-an SLC. Sadly, none of the rides are open now. They closed a few years ago. When you see the photos below, you may be surprised by the SLC. It would seem that this particular coaster, made by a company in Shanghai is called a Single Loop Coaster (SLC). Indeed, the sign on the ride's station seems to indicate this is the name of the ride. A little sign on the operator booth says the model is an SLC. Some of you were probably thinking about Vekoma when I mentioned an undocumented SLC. Enjoy the photos.

This kiddie ride used to thrill little ones to the park.

There is a big ferris wheel in Tiexi Park.

All is not well with the ferris wheel here. The windows of the gondolas near the ground have been broken out.

This large steel coaster is called Single Loop Coaster.

Here is one of several photos I took of the coaster.

This looks like it would have either been a fun ride or a rough ride. I think I will go with rough.

You can see that the coaster is rusting away.

From the looks of the train, you can tell the coaster has not ran in some time.

You can see by this sign that this is clearly an SLC.
