April 6, 2019: Lotus World-Foshan, Guangdong, China
I would visit Lotus World today. I visited back in 2016, but I came back today as the park has been renovated and most of the old rides replaced (the old Ferris wheel and jungle mouse are SBNO). As part of the new ride package, two new coasters were built. One is a Golden Horse Super Spinner. It is called Invincible Whirlwind. It turned out not to be invincible after all as it was closed today. This ride looks like a huge step forward for Golden Horse. I wish I could report here on the ride experience, but due to it being closed, that will be impossible in this TR.
To get my coaster fix for the day, I rode Magical Shuttle (#1191). This is a standard Golden Horse Space Car kiddie coaster. It was very popular during my visit. Many people were riding it.
In all, the park looks great. The rides area is located next to the old rides area and looks much cleaner and nicer.
The park is about a 30 minute walk from the Sanshui North railway station, which makes it a very easy place to visit for those who arrive by train.
I am back at Lotus World. My first visit was in 2016. Things have changed.
This will tell me where I need to go.
The old Ferris wheel still stands, but is no longer in service.
The big coaster here is named Invincible Whirlwind.
It looks like it could be a fun ride.
I will not find out.
It is closed today.
I really wanted to try it out.
I hope I get to try one of these soon.
This is one of the new rides here.
I wonder if these will take the place of the wave swingers that seem to exist in every park in China.
^ Thanks for the TR. Now, are my eyes deceiving me, or does that carousel/merry-go-round have it's two levels going in opposite direction? Upper level going clockwise; ground level going counterclockwise? Which would be cool to see, if it does.
