Sunshine Beach is a romantic harbor built on marine culture. Tourists can take photos here. It is home to over ten projects, such as Vitoria Amorous Arts Street, Flying Theater to experience soaring in the sky, and the multifunctional theater Arthur Palace for holding enterprise press conferences and banquets as well as classical performances. Lakeside Plaza is the main venue for holding a beer carnival in summer.
There you can find the most popular wooden roller coaster, the Wooden Coaster-Fireball, and the park’s highest building, the Twin-Tower Heroes, as well as the romantic merry-go-round. The Wooden Coaster-Fireball is the first large-scale project on your right after entering the park, and is acceptable for the most adventurous visitors. As the roller coaster creaks its way up, you’ll experience more than 10 times of weightlessness. Since there will be a lot of visitors waiting in line, you are advised to make it your first destination in the park.
The Twin-Tower Heroes are composed of two towers, a purple one and a yellow one. The purple goes from bottom to top while the yellow goes the other way around, offering both the experience of shooting off and falling down. Please don't wear slippers or skirts if you are to play on this.
In Shangri-La woods, you can play rafting in a canyon or you can hover across the top of the dense rain-forest in the Mega-Lite.
The Mega-Lite dives down from a height of 30 meters at nearly 100km/h. As it dives so fast, people with cervical and lumbar vertebra problems must not try this.
As a classic water entertainment project in Happy Valley, canyon rafting will take you for an adventure through the canyon, rockery, culvert, forest farm and flower sea. You can buy a raincoat at the entrance of Happy Valley for RMB 5. You can keep the raincoat if it is still in good condition, and re-use it for Super Splash later.
Restoring the scenery of Shanghai of half a century ago, and equipped with the Diving Coaster and the Pendulum Hammer which represent the top level of modern entertainment facilities, Shanghai Beach is where you can experience both modern and old Shanghai.
The Diving Coaster falls from a height of 60 meters and pauses for 3 seconds before the fall. So please don’t try if you are not psychologically strong enough.
The Pendulum Hammer is a super pirate ship, which has a 180-degree swing at its highest point., taking you as high as a 15-story building.
The Gold Mine Town is like a restoration of the historical gold rush area in Western United States. You can take a mine car to experience the thrilling scene where miners escape the flood or climb the Treasure Island to enjoy the landscape of the whole amusement park.
Treasure Island is the highest point of the park that will automatically rotate itself and let you overlook the whole Happy Valley of Shanghai. Seize the opportunity to take photos as the duration is short. You are not advised to ride the mine car if you have acrophobia.
The Mine adventure is famous for its roadway mining vehicle characterized with high speed and many rotations. It will give you an adventurous experience of sliding.
Typhoon Bay is reserved for the most adventurous players. We recommend the following: Super Splash and Perfect Storm.
Super Splash is a classic water entertainment project of Happy Valley where you can reach as high as 26 meters and dive your way at great speed down the slideway.
Perfect Storm is composed of two sets of rolling cockpits which give you a series of vertigo experiences as they roll with the tempo of the musical fountain. The abrupt ascent, falling, stopping, and rolling will truly let you feel dizzy as if the world is spinning.
