After hearing so much about the water park and the rides there a group of us decided that we would spend one of our weekend days to check it out. The park is listed as a national tourist location and is also Tianjin's largest urban park. Despite the name "Water Park" there is actually no swimming allowed at the park. The park is more of an amusement park with rides, scenery, and concessions. The main reason we decided to go to the water park was to test out the roller coasters as some of our classmates mentioned that they a blast and that they would go again. We went on the main coaster which was something of a mix between the Wild Thing, Cork Screw, and Steel Venom. The ride initially was pretty intense but that was short lived and by the end of the ride 60 seconds later we found ourselves slowly rolling back into the station. The coaster was fun but I am not sure it was worth 50 Yuan for 60 seconds. This made the others less appealing and we decided to just walk around a bit and check out the park instead of trying the other rides. Each ride was also paid for separately which would have gotten expensive. The park was well kept and looked cool as the sun went down and the day passed into evening.
