Ok this is a thread for construction of all the crazy stuff Wanda has been doing recently.

Here is the park in Nanchang which has an Intamin hyper (Havoc in Heaven Palace), the big GCI (Viper), and a custom knockoff SLC.

POV of Viper:



Here are pictures of the park in Hefei which has an Intamin launcher with a 55m non-inverting loop and a Chinese built dueling tilt coaster.

There is another park in Xishuangbanna which opened this fall and it has a small B&M flyer, an Intamin water coaster, and a Pony Express like ride made by Zamperla. Not many pictures or videos exist of this park yet.

There is also another park that hasn't broken ground yet as it will be built for 2017. It will be in Wuxi.

Kinda weird for a hyper coaster to have a turn-around between the lift and the drop. Usually they have the drop immediately after disengaging from the lift.
Cereal is soup. Change my mind.

Apparently the reason for this Intamin being so weird is that in case the knock off companies try to steal the design, they would not be stealing Intamin's true style.

These all look like fantastic rides and parks. Especially that drop on the intamin looks insane

The two Intamins have intrigued the hell out of me for awhile, especially the hideously ugly orange and green one.

That Intamin hyper looks bizzare but insanely good. It looks like a knock off with a perfectly designed drop haha

TBH that scheme isn't too bad. I would use it for a GIB - just tone down the orange.

I like the colors lol. That layout almost seems too good for a knockoff. Hopefully it rides okay, but I would've loved to see them get a Vekoma as they obviously have the money for it.

That's really really bad. I have no comparison.

This can be on a par with a B&M Invert with no MCBR! Relentless design! The intense version of Silver Bullet! :D

Well, its Jubilee Odyssey drop and first 3 inversions into standard SLC overbank then goes all B&M with a 0g instead of the MCBR.

^ Jubilee Odyssey - wow I forgot that SLC, lol. :lol: This could be more comfortable though. Sounds like a fun layout to me!

Lets hope it doesn't need to be preprofiled a bunch like Jubilee was.

Honestly if that tilt coaster is Chinese made, they've really stepped up their game. Proper shaping, smooth transition, original track design(Track itself not layout). I'd give it a decent chance to be very good.
All hail your great Arrow Dynamics overlords.

I'm guessing it is an in house project and not a knock off. It might just be a separate Chinese engineering firm building this instead of a knock off company.

It's actually a SBL knockoff invert

^ It may have a great color scheme but I'm sure you won't enjoy riding it.

This time we can't expect any knockoff section from this new photo. The drop even looks decent! :)

I hate the fact that it doesn't tilt to vertical. Hopefully the ride isn't a death trap as I don't trust many Chinese manufacturers with these mechanisms.

Ooooooh I assumed it was a Vekoma with their new track style. The loop shaping explains the whole "not a Vekoma" thing.
