China

 

HAPPY VALLEY BEIJING  (Beijing, China)  - website

HAPPY VALLEY CHENGDU  (Sichuan, China)  - website

HAPPY VALLEY SHANGHAI (Shanghai, China) - website

Park News - (10/29/13) According to this article Happy Valley Shanghai has been ordered to shut down their Intamin made Mega-Lite coaster at the park until they can determine what caused a full train load of riders to become stuck on October 19th.

icon_STOP2014 - B&M Family Inverted Coaster - Under Construction - (1/20/14) According to a RCDB, what may be B&M’s first ever “Family Inverted” coaster is under construction at Happy Valley Shanghai for the 2014 season. Blue track pieces and white support beams are already on site and we even have a B&M track tag picture identifying this newest design code as “FI” which I can only assume stands for Family Inverted.

 

HAPPY VALLEY SHENZHEN (Guangdong, China) - website

2014 - Nothing is known at this point in time, nothing new added for 2013 either...

 

HAPPY VALLEY TIANJIN (Dongli, China)

2013 - New Park - (7/23/13) Special thanks to Malcom’s Second Trip To China blog for the sneak preview trip report into Happy Valley Tianjin. The park isn’t even open to the public yet, but Malcolm scored a visit to the construction site to see the themeing and coasters being finished up.
    The park has a Bavarian Castle structure that hides an enclosed drop tower ride inside. Happy Valley Tianjin also will feature Flying Fjord Dragon, the next Martin & Vleminckx wooden coaster project in China following Fireball in Shanghai and the racing/dueling Dauling Dragon at the Wuhan park. This one features a Double Out & Back layout and like the other M&V coasters in China, will roll on PTC trains. As a bonus, while standing around watching the ride make a test run, our blogger was asked he if would like to take a test ride. I don’t have to tell you what happened next. (Make the jump to read Malcom’s review…)
    Other fun looking rides in the park include a Disk’O Coaster themed to look like a Viking Ship, a themed mountain that contains a mine train coaster (which I think may be called Volcano Explosion) as well as a two level carousel and then there is a huge domed in section of the park where you can enjoy indoor rides year round, such as Crazy Bird, the park’s S&S El Loco coaster. In general the indoor portion of the park houses a good number of kiddie rides, as you would expect.

2014 - Nothing Expected for 2014 as the park just opened in late 2013.

 

 

HAPPY VALLEY WUHAN (Hubei, China)

2014 - Nothing is known at this point in time, nothing new added for 2013 either...
