Thanks for sharing, Yin...this park looks amazing!

It will be interesting to watch it expand in the coming years.

Much better. Happy Valley-Chimelong parks is like SFOT in the past summer-Cedar Point.

I remember when Elissa called FOTR's trains Wild Parrot. We should give each wing coaster a Wild name.

X Flight > Wild Bird (generic)
Wild Eagle > Wild Eagle (derp)
Swarm > Wild Flies (I know that "swarm" in this case has nothing to do with insects, but still)
Raptor > Wild Velociraptor(Again, completely unrelated, but modern-day raptors are more like eagles, and we already have a Wild Eagle)
Gatekeeper > Wild Seagull (or Angry Seagull, as I heard it called once)
FOTR > Wild Parrot (I just said this...)
Flug der Damonen > Wild Demon (SO original)
"Official" Cedar Fair fanboy!
Favorite Steel: Maverick|Favorite Wood: El Toro, Goliath is close behind|Favorite non-prefab/RMC woodie: Hard to say. Probably Shivering Timbers or Georgia Cyclone
Favorite Flats (in no particular order) - MoA NU Brain Surge, Chance Chaos, Flying Scooters, drop towers
I take a stand against unnecessary neutering of rides. Restore Revolution, Blue Streak, Dorney Thunderhawk, Raging Bull, etc...

Great photos and report! The park does look very nice. Those crowds would have sent me quickly to the exit, though.

I don't understand the "backstage photos" captions, are you not allowed to take pictures of certain rides? or were just kind of sneaking around?

The park looks fantastic

It is clear to me. He was on a tour with the park's permission to see the rides that were not open yet and the park/manufacturers asked him not to post most of the pictures he took.

They allowed us to take photos, but don't allow us to post on public sites. Now I have the picture of the blue prints, the hydraulic lap bar device on Mack's water coaster, the computer under the control panel and all kinds of coaster train parts. Sadly Mack's engineers told me I'm not allowed to post them or share with others in a very serious tone. I think everyone knows how highly developed Chinese Knock-Off industry is, right?
