I'm very impressed with this park! At first, I was worried that this was going to be a big project that generated little attendance like the knock-off Disney parks. But it appears as if this park won't have attendance issues for a while. Also, the queues have to be some of the best themed I've seen. And FOTR has one of the coolest station buildings! I can't wait to see more of what Mack can do.

^^A very weird looking fish.

Kristen really likes them and there are probably less than 15 in captivity in the whole world so it's hard to find them!

I don't think they have it. It might be a protected animal that no private parks are allowed to own one. Is there any park in the world has some of those fish?

I remember catching a fish like that in Animal Crossing!

So...is that fish really that large compared to the diver or is that just just perspective messing with me?

I'm a fan of the whale sharks at the Georgia Aquarium

Not to distract the thread further, but yes, you catch that fish in Animal Crossing and yes they can grow VERY large. They're actually the worlds largest 'bony' fish. (Not cartilage like sharks).

There are private aquariums that have them, but they are very hard to take care of which is why there are not a lot in captivity.

Thanks Yin!

Very nice report. The park looks astonishing! I have to admit I've never been a "theming person" as I usually pay a lot more attention to the rides themselves but in this case it's just insane. I really liked the look of FOTRF's queue a lot as well as pretty much everything else.
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?

Thanks for sharing Yin. What an impressive-looking park, and as always I love the Chinese coaster names (Flying Over the Rainforest!).

Wow, Ocean Kingdom looks really detailed! From the photos I've seen with Flying Over the Rainforest, it seems that the ride makes up for it's lack of a keyhole effect with it's really close to the ground dives and tunnels. I'm guessing the park is somewhat like a SeaWorld since I don't think it looks like there are any flat rides.
Great trip report, Yin!

Those photos are beautiful. I bet the GP is eating up the FOtR coaster.
Nice looking park. Thanks for sharing :)

I love donkeys more than me.

Wow, everything looks stunning! I was afraid this was going to be one of those Chinese parks where the theming is "nice" but with a closer look would be cheap looking.
