Photo TR: Chiling Entertainment Park (December 8, 2013)

Postby The Angry Darren Mullins » Sun Dec 08, 2013 5:11 am

Today I went to Dongguan to visit Chiling Entertainment Park. I found this park sometime ago and knew it had a powered coaster. I was not going to go all the way there for a single powered coaster. It wasn't until recently that I saw on Google maps that the park also has a jungle mouse coaster. That made it more likely that I would go. I found this park before ACE and RCDB found it.

I got to the park and went in. It is very small, but very nice. This park is all amusement park. They have a lake with boats, the mouse, powered coaster, bumper cars and other rides. Although it is a bit faded, it is a nice little park to spend part of an afternoon in. I was greeted by two young ladies in the park named Emmy and Lily. Their family runs the park. Their mom was the one in charge of selling tickets. They showed me around. Emmy wanted to practice her English. On the bumper cars, Emmy drove like a fiend. I didn't know that a child could drive a bumper car the way she did. It was great fun. The employees were all very friendly. The paratrooper seemed to make some bad noises. Maybe the noises were caused by a lack of grease, but it was a bit scary to hear them as they were not normal noises. It sound liked something was breaking on the ride.

The jungle mouse coaster was partly built over the lake. It is a standard design that I have experienced in many other parks in China.

In all, Chiling Entertainment Park is a bit faded,but very nice little local park. It is a few miles from Shuilianshan Park, which has a large looping coaster, so visitors to Dongguan can hit both parks on the same day. There is a bus from the Nancheng bus terminal to both parks. I have now ridden 855 coasters and I have discovered 222 coasters before ACE or RCDB could find them.

Chiling Park Emmy and Lily 2.jpg
I would, unexpectedly, have these two young ladies as my guides. They are Emmy and Lily. Their parents run the rides and take the money. Actually, their mom takes the money.
Chiling Park Defunct Ride.jpg
This ride no longer operates.
Chiling Haunted House.jpg
This is a walk through attraction.
Chiling Park Lake.jpg
This lake provides a place for a nice boat ride. I did not notice the employee sleeping when I took this photo.
Chiling Bumper Cars.jpg
Bumper cars are here. Emmy (one of my guides for the park) drives like a fiend.
Chiling Park Carousel.jpg
Here is the park's merry go round. It is not like any other such ride I have seen.
Chiling Park Paratrooper.jpg
I rode this paratrooper. It made strange noises. I kept having visions of that swing ride collapsing on You Tube. This did not feel or sound normal.
Chiling Park Kiddie Coaster Station.jpg
There is a powered kiddie coaster here.

It is a typical dragon coaster.

Here is an on ride shot of the dragon.
Chiling Park Pirate Ship.jpg
A swinging ship is here. They are so common in parks across Asia.
Chiling Park Mouse.jpg
A mouse coaster is here.
Chiling Park Mouse Cars.jpg
These are the original cars for the mouse. I didn't know Chinese mouse coasters had cars like this. They look to be in decent shape, despite being a bit old.

Here is another look at the mouse.
Chiling Park Moon Cars.jpg
This photo of the moon cars ride will finish the TR.

That first ride that you posted looked interesting. Is that like some form of a Roll-O-Plane?

The first ride is not a roll-o-plane. It is more similar to a Zamperla roto shake. It was closed and hasn't operated in some time. in regards to upkeep on the rides, the mouse cars have been replaced, but other than the mouse, the rides could use some refurbishment.
