A family affair combo of Happy Valley and the water park didn't started well. Huge lines of waiting guests and scorching sun are not a perfect combination, especially when security officers are too zealous to do their job properly. First ride, just a simple water ride but they ask for my passport ! You cannot ride if you are over 60 and I cannot understand why! Around 10 minutes of arguments and showing a passport solved the problem eventually. The rest of the more dangerous rides were not a problem, nobody even bothered asking! An advice, when you go.through the gate, start with the rides on your left and go clockwise... no waiting! In China everyone follows the crowd and going anticlockwise direction, so waiting time is really long, especially during the weekend. For 299 RMB you want better!

Happy valley Shanghai holds one of the best roller coasters in my life!!!! I strongly recommend the wooden ride, since it is perfect for All riders, but it has an amazingly long waiting time. I do not recommend th giant swing since it is both scary and uncomfortable, and the seating is as hard as a log.

Hello Everyone We made a trip for 5 days to Shanghai this year and because we all are huge amusementpark fans and have already visited many parks all around the World we also wanted to go to Happy valley. We did go there on a monday but there were way more people than we expected. But the good thing was that all rides were open. We arrived at 10:00 am at the Park and wanted to get our first ride on the parks signature coaster "Diving Coaster". We had to wait for nearly 1 hour but not because there were that many people but they only ran 1 train and the operations are incredibly slow. We have never seen such a slow working staff in any park before. The ride itself was very good. After that we went to the Megalite of the park and again after a waiting time of nearly 1 hour we had a lot of fun in this ride. From then till 4 pm we spend our time doing the water rides, smaller coasters and 4D rides because the wood coaster(opened at 1 pm) had such a long queue. At 4 pm we wanted to ride the Diving coaster again. But as we were there a employee told us that the line is already closed although the coaster should be open till 5pm. That was a huge disappointment. So we made the choise to go to the wood coaster and hope we can queue in there (also close at 5pm). The line was still very long but we were allowed to go in and after waiting for nearly 2 hours we had really great night ride on this coaster. In my opinion the best coaster of the park because it was so fast and wild. After that we ate something and left the park at 7pm. And a little warning: We dont know why maybe because we went shortly after halloween but in the evening so many people came to the park. It was absolutely incredible. As a conclusion i would say that this Park has great rollercoasters but due to the slow operations and bad open/closing times of the rides the park loses much of ist Potential. I would recommend to visit China Dinosaurs Park in Changzhou or Happy Valley in Beijing. We had better experiences in those parks.

I love this place more than Disney! I went on a Wednesday and except for a bunch of school students the park was pretty empty. So if you don't like crowds go on a weekday. Two of the big rollercoasters weren't open which was a disappointment but there were plenty of other rides to go on. The best rides were the Gyro Swing and the fireball wooden rollercoaster. Safety is a big priority for all staff members and they double checked all rides before and after. We went during Halloween and the park was beautifully decorated and the performers costumes where so amazing! Definitely felt like they got the Halloween spirit right. The food was also not bad. The highlight of the evening was the water light show. I've never seen anything like that before... definitely recommend. Overall great atmosphere. great theme park.

We visited them on a Friday and probably because of this three out of the four major rides we closed!! We send time looking at online reviews about the rides being open and we only found comments around the rides having opening and closing times. However, according to our experience, most of the major rides were not open on a weekday. Because of that, I think we didn’t get what we paid for. Sure there were little to no waiting time but I would very happily have waited for some of the major rides. Try to hold the above in mind when choosing between weekend with all rides and long waiting times or weekdays with no waiting times but less rides.
