Dalian Discovery Kingdom, also known as Discoveryland, in Jinshitan, Dalian, China, has some big rides that kids love but the park isn't just for kids. There's a lake in the middle of the park and parades with performers from Russia and elsewhere meander around that area. Also, there are big shows with lots of daring stunts. This place is very...

Discoveryland, close to the train station and the beach in Jinshitan, is very popular. It has some big rides and also areas called Crazy Town, Mysterious Desert, Metal Factory, Magic Forest, Legend Castle, and Wedding Palace.There are three roller coasters, two water rides, a vertical drop tower, other rides, parades, and fireworks at night. Closed during winter.

If you have days to spend and a lot of money , go. Otherwise avoid like the plague . Arrived 1 hour before opening and already 200 people in front of us . Once inside the line is averaging 4 to 5 hours per attractions . In 8 hours we went on 3 rides.

This is a very nice amusement park, but the queue is just crazy. We wanted to take the roller coaster but it was impossible because you have to queue before 12 only to take it at around 4-5PM. The quality of the rides are good and there are a lot of rides, but make sure you come as early as... More

The que management may need some improvements, especially during holidays when people are packed and a little out of hand. the rides are quite nice, but if you are familiar with other famous parks like universal studios, you will find a lot of similarities in this one.

Not to be compared with larger amusement parks, but it's okay for a day. The rides are good, the food is passable once you get by the fried squid (we don't care for it), the ambiance is fun to be around and the people (staff and visitors) have been fun to be around. It would be a good choice for... More

Amusement park far away from the satndards of a Disneyland but quite OK for once or twice a year. Very busy during peak season due to tons of Chinese tourists. Same stunt show as 2013. Most actors of the parade are from Russia or Ukraine.

I took my son to here with my cousin, it was quite a long drive from centre dalian, and it was such a HOT & HUMID day. the queue is massive, but I guess it's school holiday, so expect it. You have to be very patient when inside as there is queue for everything. It was a fun day out,... More
