Great pictures Hanno! Sorry, this is late but I am so happy someone got a shot of the bathrooms at Crab Island. I have discribed them to friends, but no one can imagine. Brings back some memories.......

Horrific memories!!!

 

I seriously walked in while someone was "mid dump" and I had to walk RIGHT back out! lol

 

That is absolutely horrifying. I'm almost glad I wasn't on the trip.

 

Nice photos Hanno, as always.

I walked into that bathroom, took a look, and decided to hold it until later. It was scarier than anything at Halloween Horror Night in Orlando this year.

This Photo TR contains a photo of the scariest coaster ever (I cannot believe that thing is still operating!) and one of the greatest Larry photos ever. Nice job!

Thank you

Yeah.. it was about time another Larry photo was posted

Is that really saying much though?

 

Yes, Chinese toilets in general are scarier than almost anything else.

^Thou hast spoke aright.

 

Looking forward to seeing more of your China photos, Hanno. Even when I'm on the same trip, you always manage to capture things that I missed.

Imagine what Orlando would look like if they stopped stocking the bathrooms with toilet paper.

 

On another note, this was easily the most messed up theme park I've been to... but I haven't been to most of the Chinese ones that were covered on this years tours, so that may not be saying much.

Second park during day 2 was Sun Park.

 

I believe this area was used or beach volleyball during the olympics?

 

Had a few fun rides and nothing that tried to kill u (too) much.

I loved it when they did the "lineup" to determine who would ride on the spaceship kiddie coaster based on size. I don't recall anybody being denied, though. It was also great how Robb and Elissa ensured that everyone would get the credits there.

Day 3: Happy Valley Beijing

 

Fun day at the park. This park looked nice and was pretty big (compared to most of the parks in China).. It was also a first encounter with extreme staggered opening times.. as in the SLC would not open that day untill early evening (if memory serves me right)

 

Waiting in line appeared to be a favorite passtime as the lines were verey long (as soon as rides opened). Very happy that we had some filming time on the biggest/most important coasters ;)

 

All in all: hot, fun day at the park ;)

DSC_5427.JPG.875c210c59fff2efed685de9a8345898.JPG

i guess the rain dance worked.. there's some blue sky (which is apparently very unique in Beijing)

I really cannot stand the new color schemes at this Happy Valley park. In my opinion, they contrast way too much with the theming, which really takes away from all the beautiful details. I feel like Crystal Wing's old colors were much more fitting and aesthetically pleasing.

 

 

But anyway, great pictures, Hanno! Thanks for sharing.
