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

Very fun. The worst part is the queue for the roller coaster, but the roller coaster is amazing!! Free fall is good.

Yes having been to DisneyLand in the states it is modelled on the theme without Mickey and the gang. Great for older children from 6 up, my daughter is 2 and of course is limited as to what she can go on, but there is an indoor area near the water log ride which has rides for very young children....

The park has really some good rides, but the big problem is, that the other people don't know how to behave. They do queue jumping whenever there is a gap bigger than 50 cm in front of you and the employees of the park don't care about. This can double your waiting time. The food is typical chinese fast food.
