Jul 2016 • Family
-Inflatables were 50rmb with a 50rmb deposit
-Tickets were 200rmb for an adult, health card 6rmb
-Easy, Lockers are available for a small amount
-Open till 11pm
-Plenty of slides
-Food- mediocre
We went to Dino Beach 9 years ago and it was looking in need of renovation, when we returned last week we were pleasantly surprised. The admissions fee was 200 rmb and we had to purchase a health card from the ticket counter,I would suggest buying the official one for 6 rmb instead of buying the possibly illegitimate healthcare card from the parking lot these do not need to be filled in and they did not even check them for us. We went with four people and so we hired one double inflatable and so two of us did the slides that required it and the other two did the slides that did not require it before swapping. It is definitely worth getting an inflatable, as the lazy river is much more enjoyable with one, and you can even leave it at a storage site if you don't need it and then you can pick it up later. They provide you with special containers for your money as well. It was relatively empty when we arrived at 4pm and the toilets and shower blocks were very clean. It only shut at 11pm so we stayed late into the evening and left at 8:30. I would definitely go again.

Horrible Customer Service, Over Priced and Way Too Crowded
Jun 2013 • Friends
Employees there, especial the ones taking care of the slides, are extremely mean. They shout at everything we do. I was waiting in line for over 40 min or so and when I get to the top, my friend wasn't wearing "the right pants" for the slide. He got really angry and my friend had to leave and wait for me at the bottom. It was very unpleasant.

The food is horrible and it costs a fortune. We can't bring food from outside so we are forced to eat their crappy foods.

Worst of all, too many people. I get that it's Shanghai and all but there's just too many people to enjoy. The only time it was fun was when it was raining. Chinese hate rain so if you pick a day to go, go when it's raining. There will still be a lot of people but definitely much less then usual.

refreshing fun!
Aug 2013 • Family
This is a great place to refresh on a summer day with your kids. The attractions range from baby pools and water games to massive wave pool and fast slides for adults. The river is my favourite ride although parts of it are a bit scary for smaller children.
As for the complains in some of the previous posts:
- yes, the park is a bit expensive and a bit crowder, but just avoid weekends and you'll have plenty of space to have some great fun. After all, most places in Shanghai are crowded on weekends.
- yes, the food in there is nothing special. But you're going for the slides and the waves, not for the restaurants. Bring your own food if you're picky.
- the complaint about the swimming shorts sounds ridiculous to me. It is the typical foreign guy who thinks he can bend the rules just because he is a laowai. Rules are rules, my friend, same for everyone, no matter where you come from. Those guys are just doing their job.

Fun water park, 45min from city center
Aug 2013
It's ~60rmb taxi ride, or could metro line 1 or 9, plus 15rmb taxi ride (or 20min walk from metro stop). Metro Line 9 (Xingzhong stop) or 1 (Waihuanlu stop). Then 20min walk, or 15rmb taxi.

Weekdays 150rmb, weekends 20rmb. Lunch set meals will run you 45rmb.

It's arguably more fun than the newer Playa Maya... Since the lazy river has an ice cave (with freezing water, that trickles) and hurricane area, with big waves. The beach/wave pool here can't be beat. Huge waves. Fun way to spend a hot summer Shanghai day.

crowded and loud
Jul 2012 • Family
Very crowded and loud. They take all food and drink before letting you in. The food and drinks inside was very expensive. If you have children under 1.20 m they will not be able to go on many ride. Very boring for smal children since it was very crowded even on a monday.

Terrible Service & Crazy Expensive
Jul 2012 • Friends
Because of a lack of alternatives I went to Dino Beach again this year. They charge 200 RMB per person, additionally you have to rent some swimming rings, a locker, and you maybe would like to buy their expensive food inside, so for two people calculate with 700 RMB per day. The parks attractions are fun but it gets so crowded that you get pushed and stopped by crowds everywhere the whole time.

Additionally their service is one of the worst ever. This year I wanted to take a waterslide and after I lined up for 30 min the Chinese service person at the top stopped me and said "Your pants are not allowed". I told him that I always wear these pants in this park and other waterparks but he was not interested. Also the argument that I waited already more than 30 min in line and that they could tell you this at the bottom and not at the top was not of interest to him. Another guy came and yelled at me and my girlfriend loudly, then they stopped the whole queue and waited me to leave, which was of course quite unfair as people would get angry at me why I am blocking the line. I had no choice to make all the way down again and NOT take the slide.

Quite disappointing to wait for more than 30 min, pay more than 700 RMB and then being rejected in an embarassing way with screaming at you.

I wanted to complain about the workers at the slide, but when I went to their information office and discussed with them, they just said the workers have a hard job and I shouldn't complain about this, no compensation was offered, instead they offered me a Chinese (used!) swimming pants so I could do the slide again. I had the feeling they thought it was kind of funny that a foreinger complained in Chinese and laughed a lot instead of taking my complaint seriously.

So if definitely wouldn't recommend this attraction, overpriced, overcrowded and one of the worst service I ever meet in China.

Asia's Biggest Wave Pool Is Also Its Most Crowded
Jul 2012 • Solo
Dino Beach is a HUGE water park with lots to do. It also attracts hordes of visitors. A friend took me there on a weekday afternoon and it was pretty busy; long series of barriers make it clear that the place is to be avoided on weekends. The river ride adds excitement with waves and Indiana Jones-ish setting. Lots of different slides and activities. Interestingly, there is also a sand beach where I witnessed a mother giggling as her son urinated into the sand. The changing facilities provide little or no privacy and are very basic. Lifeguards are stationed around the park and there are lots of staff. Women seemed to dress more conservatively than their Western counterparts, usually wearing modest "two-piece" swim suits. Men mostly wear tight little nylon shorts. Plenty of rest rooms, lots of shaded seating, several snack bars selling junk food. Tube rental. Few signs in English. I think admission was around 100 RMB. Get there by taking Metro Line 1 to the last station, Xinzhang, and then a taxi to the park, which shouldn't run over 20 RMB. (About a ten minute ride from the station through suburban Shanghai, which is interesting in itself!)

Nice, but dirty
I went here in August 2008 together with my 9 year old daughter.

We paid 150 Yuan (me) and 100 Yuan (daughter) on a Friday. The price is higher during the weekend, because many more people come here. It was pretty quit when we got here. To get a locker, you have to go to a separate counter.
The changing area is small and is dirty and smells like urine. While I was changing, someone was peeing in the shower area (have seen this before in China), which is an explanation.
The locker area is safe, because a second key is needed, which is held by an attendant, which works well.
Going to the swimming pool area, you have to go through a small pool to wash your feet. The water is not refreshed at all, so it may be safer to bypass this dirty pool.
Inside the pool, you may opt to rent a tube (50 Yuan).
The area is pretty large, and there are several attractions (see dinobeach.com.cn), however some of the attractions are poorly maintained, which at times makes it unsafe. The pavement is not cleaned, and is very slippery. They have put rubber mats on the pavement to counter this.
While we were in this park,several attractions/slides were not in service.
One of the main attractions is a sandbeach with a very large swimming pool. We initially liked it very much, until we discovered human faeces in the water.

Overall the idea is nice and pricing is close to what would be paid in Europe for such a park. However, they do very little to keep it clean.
