^ Haha, there will be, but it's such a long trip I'll post stuff in here as we go along so I don't forget everything. Plus, Facebook is blocked in China so for the majority of the trip we won't be able to post anything on there (unless we can get around the block, which is more difficult on a phone than it is on a laptop)
Ocean Park was well busy but we did everything - the B&M is miles away from being finished though. Also parts of the park that are new are really nice but the older stuff is a bit dumpy... I loved the Arrow though!
Disney was great, really nice. They do need more but that's coming and what they have is great. A lot like California the park is so with just more it'll be up there as one of the best Disney parks.
Decided not to bother with Burdenous Island because the weather was crap and we wanted to go to the hostel in Shenzhen where I am now mincing <3
Crappy Valley is a dump. 2 hours for Kumali? Ugh. Had to do it though.
Chimelong Paradise was nice... Colossus was better than our colossus, but that isn't saying much. The booster bike was worse than Velocity though, I think. The half pipe was vile. The dive machine was amazing though <3.
Chuanlord Manor (kinda near chimelong, has 7 creds) was a highlight. Got on s looping toboggan, and omg, I thought I was going to die. We were nearly too tall for it, and they had to remove all the padding from the seats to allow our legs more room to stretch out. The other coasters were ghetto, but the toboggan took the cake. Oh, and they have duck circling, the best game ever where you throw rings around ducks in a pond. Real ducks.
Nearly forgot, Mountain Flyer is my new favourite woodie. A. Maise. Ing.
The looping toboggan looks like death, but love how the lift hill is themed to a tree haha <3 Also a plus that you aren't enclosed in a capsule of death like the one at Clacton </3. Chuanlord Manor looks amazing.
Chaunlord was just amazing. The mosto ghetto fabulous place ever.
Yesterday we had a horrid 20 hour train journey in cattle class. People were standing and there was actual faeces on the floor.
Rocked up in Shanghai though and went to Happy Valley today. Got our other Dive Machine which was fab, Mega Lite that was also fab and a great woodie. But the operations were dire. Awful operations mind. It was DEAD and we still waited two hours for the Woodie </3 one train on everything in this country vom.
Sue I just found Dragon to be super quick and intense, tbh. Jake weren't a fan though.
Mountain Flyer was just crazy awesome. So fast and intense, but smooth. A perfect GCI. if you like Troy you're in for a treat...
Today was World Joyland. What a HOLE. It looks fab in pics but as you'll see from the photos we have it's a dive. Some stupid policies too - they make you take watches off on coasters but give you a wristband for the compulsory locker? The Flyer was crazy good though, that zero g thing followed by the loop was fantastic.
The new B&M flyer at World Joyland is AMAZING. So obscene having that crazy zero g thing straight into a loop... Insane.
Shame the rest of the park is a complete dump, really. Such a disappointment. The theming is spectacular, but up close looks tatty and worn. The whole park feels rushed and unfinished (paint, cement etc spilled on the floor and not cleaned up). Oh, and an hour for a mine train with 2 lift hills running one train? What a dive.
Don't get me started on the locker / loose article policies.
Ok, we survived the bullet train and have just been out for dinner in Beijing. This is defo more 'Chinese' than Shanghai, stereotypically of course, it's cute.
On our last day in Shangz we ended up doing the zoo (they have a cred). Wasn't the biggest fan really... I don't really care about animal rights but was quite shocked at the conditions some of the animals were living in. Poor pandas </3.
After the zoo we went to check out a carnival which we'd seen an advert for on the metro, and got 4 bonus creds! 4 Pinfaris <3.
