Nanhu Amusement Park is a park that has seen better years. A large park map found inside the gate had faded to the point that one could just about see that it was once full colour. The paintwork in the entry plaza area was shabby and peeling in places, and indeed the only ride that looked even vaguely presentable was the powered Dragon. The ride that looked like a Tagada wasn't, insofar as it didn't bounce riders up and down, and the up-charge dark ride turned out to be utterly mediocre. Talhat described the place as a twenty minute park, and that, to be frank, was accurate.
The park has one full size roller coaster, and it is horrendous; Crazy Roller Coaster (#1278) hurt most people sitting in the front half of the train, with it even managing to draw blood in one case. Those sitting further back were apparently luckier, but there was no way I was going to ride a second time. Instead, I decided to figure out how the on ride photo system worked, as some of the shots produced were surprisingly detailed. It turned out that there were at least two members of staff with high end digital cameras located at strategic vantage points, with a young lady operating as a runner; immediately after pictures were taken she charged across to the ride exit with the digital camera cards! If I hadn't seen it myself I wouldn't have believed it; only in China!
