Sean: One of our last Shanghai parks was the brand new Shanghai Haichang Ocean Park! Home to many exhibits, killer whales, and the signature Steel Dolphin Intamin Blitz coaster, we were very much looking forward to visiting. Upon arrival we slowly started figuring out that this park is *just* shy of being a hit, but somehow charges prices comparable to Shanghai Disneyland. Let’s go explore.

Sean: Wonder what China’s version of a studios–themed park is like? Wonder no more! The famous Huayi Brothers have major studio property right by the park, and recently opened a movie studios theme park with a wild mix of knock-offs, stellar world-class attractions, and bizarre dark rides. Let’s head in to this amazingly well–manicured park and see if polish alone can carry the place! Continue reading “HB World – 2019 Trip Report”

Sven: Like other parts of the world, the Halloween spirit arrived at many of Europe’s theme parks. One of those park celebrates it for the 21st time: Movie Park Germany! As it is known to be one of the better events, we went to Bottrop for the first time to see the event’s mazes and enjoy the atmosphere!
Sean: Welcome to the next installment of our China adventure. One of the many reasons 2019 was the year of this tour was because of the giant amount of new theme parks opening up in China at the moment. In order to keep up we’re trying to hit new parks within a few years from opening. Wuxi Sunac Land opened June 29th of this year and is best known for their giant B&M Wing Coaster: Falcon. Let’s head in! Continue reading “Wuxi Sunac Land – 2019 Trip Report”
Alexander: It’s time for us to spread our wings and travel beyond the immediate Shanghai metro and deeper into the Yangtze Delta megaopolis, (namely the Jiangsu province, which is home to the next several parks on our tour).
Alexander: It’s so great to finally be back at one of our absolute favorite places, Shanghai Disney! And this time we aren’t freezing our butts off like we were in January of last year!
Sean: Get ready for a whole lot of China! One of the more “Chinese” parks of the trip was Happy Valley Shanghai, home to dilapidated areas, closed coasters, some pleasant and unpleasant surprises and… a Pizza Hut!
