Western Temple Fair

The Western Temple Fair, a highlight of Shijingshan Amusement Park, is a combination of western customs and Chinese culture.

Overgrown trees in Shijingshan Amusement Park
Hi there, I've watched videos showing these rides but they are about 4years old now. I'm curious if anyone has been here recently or within the last year? I was considering going here but it looks really dangerous on the rides because there are overgrown trees and weeds grown into the tracks of the rides. I don't want to go if this is the condition of the park still. Thank you.

Oh, they would regularly clean the weeds and examine & repair the rides. So the rides are safe enough and the conditions are generally good. Just go and enjoy yourself! If you still worry about that, here is the number of the park: 86 010-88925159. You can dial and have a consultation in advance.
