What to expect at Happy Valley Shanghai

Situated 25 kilometers from Hongqiao International Airport and 68 kilometers from Pudong International Airport, Happy Valley of Shanghai offers more than 100 rides to experience.

 

The Sunshine Harbor is located in the southeastern part of the park. It is a romantic harbor with a strong British style featuring European Gothic architectures in the 19th century. You can enjoy yourself at the flying theater.

 

Located in the southeast of the park, Happy Hour presents as a prosperous European town in the early 20th century. If you are adventurous, it is recommended that you try the ride of Gumu Youlong. At the ride, you will experience 10 times of weightlessness. As it is fairly popular, you’d better try it upon entering the park. If you visit the park after 11:00am, it is recommended that you enjoy it before you leave the park in the afternoon.

 

At Shangri-La you can raft through the winding canyons and fly through the lush rainforest on the Mega-Lite. The Mega-Lite dives down from the height of 30 meters at a speed of nearly 100km/h. The amazing speed will offer you a wonderful feeling of flying freely. Because the impact speed is too fast, those whose cervical vertebrae and lumbar spine are not good are not suggested to experience it.

 

The Shanghai Bund features the scenes of the Bund half a century ago, and there is also a drop-out roller coaster that represents the top level of today’s entertainment equipment and the big pendulum clock, and so on. You will experience the Old Shanghai and modern Shanghai there.

 

The thrilling Hurricane Bay area is the stage for the brave and the adventurous. You can take the flume ride from the height of 26 meters and take a boat to experience the large waves of the Perfect Storm composed of two rolling cockpits.

 

At the Gold Mine Town in memory of the history of the gold mining in the western United States, you can take a mining car and experience the thrilling scene of miners escaping from the flood. The top of the Treasure Island offers a panoramic view of the park.
