I would visit three parks over the past couple of days and ride my 1200th coaster in the process.
Yutan Park-This park is located about a 15 minute bus ride away from the newest Fantawild Park. I stopped in for a bit, rode the coaster and left. This is a common city park with a small area of rides. The jungle mouse here became my 1200th coaster to ride and Yutan Park became park #609 for me to visit.
Oriental Heritage (Changsha)-This is Fantawild's newest park and it just opened a little over a week ago. It is park #610 for me to visit and my 10th Fantawild park. There are three coasters here. Big Top is a Vekoma family suspended coaster. It is the third model of this type that I have ridden. It is a lot of fun. Visitors to Dollywood this year can experience one of these. Puppy Coaster is a wacky worm knockoff and it became coaster #1202 for me to ride.
The real star here is Celestial Gauntlet. This is the first Vekoma Energy Storm coaster and is Vekoma's best work to date. It is like a mega lite with inversions. It is glass smooth and a lot of fun. It became my 1203rd coaster.
One downside to this park is the slow ride ops in light of the almost $50 USD entrance fee. I do not mind the admission prices going up, but they need to start implementing customer service. Celestial Gauntlet was running only one train and can only carry 16 passengers. I waited about 45 minutes for it. With a train leaving the station every 7-8 minutes, only 8 trains will be dispatched an hour. This is not good for when these types of places get busy.
Hunan Martyr's Park-I visited this park in 2010 and I went there again a couple of days ago. It was raining, but I discovered that a new mite mouse coaster had been built. I went back this morning to ride it. It became coaster #1204 for me to ride and coaster #498 for me to discover before ACE or RCDB.
I am on my way to the new Oriental Heritage, but first, I will stop in at Yutan Park.
They have a big Ferris Wheel here.
A mouse coaster is here.
I see these often.
This one became my 1200th coaster.
After a 15 minute bus ride, I arrived at this place.
The park is less than a week and a half old.
This is just inside the entrance.
Here are some of the buildings in the park.
There is some circus theming here.
The Big Top is from Vekoma and is the third coaster of its type that I have ridden.
This is the first drop on the Big Top.
Here is another look at the Big Top before I move on.
The rapids ride is nicely themed.
Puppy Coaster is a wacky worm.
Here is an onride shot.
The chutes ride looks great.
Now for what you all clicked on the TR to see.
Celestial Gauntlet is like a mega lite with inversions.
Look at that first drop.
There were no rough spots at all on this.
Here is an action shot.
I went to Hunan Martyr's Park on Monday morning for the new mite mouse coaster.
