CHIMELONG OCEAN KINGDOM
HengQin Island, Guangdong, China
Park News - (2/2/15) A great video showing off both on-ride as well as a complete POV on-ride experiewnce of the Polar Explorer Mack coaster/flume ride was posted to YouTube last week. It is interesting to see how some sections of the ride really do appear to be well themed, especially in the water flume section, which passes through a bear exhibit with live animals as a special feature, but all this great themeing seems to have been forgotten for the most part when the rides goes into "coaster" mode behind the giant fake mountain facade for brief moments before splashing down once again up front. Fortunately these moments are brief. Check it out below.
If you want a little more, I also came across a POV of the park's Parrot Coaster, a new B&M Wing Coaster design that soars around a mostly lush green landscape, along with a couple of drops into underground tunnels.
(4/10/14) Chimelong Ocean Kingdom has been awarded with five Guinness World Records following the park’s official opening ceremony held on March 29th. The park is now home to the World’s Largest Aquarium, the World’s Largest Aquarium Tank, the World’s Largest Underwater Viewing Dome, the World’s Largest Aquarium Window and the World’s Largest Acrylic Panel.
2015 - Nothing is known at this time. Since the park just opened in 2014, there may be some second phase attractions that were not finished yet coming online in 2015.
