With every major park announcement in China comes a trove of amusing concept art. Happy Valley has announced it's planned Xi'an based park and it is no exception.

Look closely at the concept art and you can spot 2 B&M Flyers (1 Superman, 1 Manta) a Schwarzkopf looping coaster, a Wodan clone and a B&M/Vekoma SFC.

What the park's actual line up will be remains to be seen but here's the art so far.

Some large scale art showing off the park.

A Wodan Clone... And 2 B&M flyers? WT actual F?

Placeholders. It's a way to visualize that they set aside this-and-that area for coasters, which obviously aren't ordered yet, so they just plonk down some nonspecific (to the untrained eye) coaster layouts.

There's no station fly by or anything?! Sure, it has some elements that Wodan does (and Desert Rally in Happy Valley Chengdu), but it's absolutely clearly not a clone. It's a concept art piece to convey a wooden coaster, that simple.

Construction of the water park section has gone vertical.

As with other OCT parks like the recently finished Happy Valley Nanjing and under construction Fantasy Valley Xiangyang the water park will go up first with the Theme park section following. In this satellite image from November the Water Park can be seen to the South of the metro line here while the theme park will be to the North.

Its been pretty much confirmed that when the Happy Valley section eventually opens it will feature a GCI woodie but other coasters are still unknown.

The city of Xi'an seems to have recently finished the metro extension to the park as well, providing a handy metro station at the parks entrance plaza. Always helpful for those of us who enjoy a jaunt around China.

Interestingly if you travel just 4 stops down the metro line you will find the stop for the also Under Construction Silk Road theme park which is expected to feature the first Golden Horse Flying Coaster and weirdly an Intamin Zac Spin. (I'll start a construction topic for that soon)
