Not half bad...

We went right after a holiday so it was quite empty. No wait time to get on rides. The place was very well maintained & the rides were fun.

The place is nice and there are also natural area with trees, bushes ... unfortunately there are always speakers spreading the same irritating music, would be good to have quiet area to rest. For a ticket at 230 rmb i was expecting more inside.... More

Don't waste your time. Go to Disneyland instead. The best attraction here is the dive coaster (one of my favorite coasters in the world), but the park suffers from overall awful service, quality, experience, and cleanliness.

I'm not much for theme parks in Asia considering the wait time and people you usually have to fight through but not on the day we visited. We went to Happy Valley mainly because we live very close, it was my daughter's birthday and we weren't up to the trek across the city to mix with hoards of people and... More

Went there during Chinese New Year and luckily it wasn't too packed so we had time to try all the rides. The train with a wooden structure is a potential deadly hasard. The train is litterally lifting off the rails and falling back on during the ride. It will surely totally fly out one day and kill people. The facility... More

Be sure to stay for the 'lake of illusions' show at 19:00. Downside: A lot of attractions were closed (some due to cold weather, but some have been closed ever since i went there first time) Lack of proper restaurants for foreigner (mostly kfc), although you can get some skewers (炒烤) at some spots. Crowded in summer (better to go... More

Visited this park on 14 of November. Unfortunately a lot of cool roller coasters are closed. Be careful with water attractions - we were almost all wet.
