Discoveryland Theme Park

Discoveryland Theme Park is located on the Golden Coast of the Jinshitan Scenic Area (also called Golden Pebble Beach National Resort), Dalian City of Liaoning Province. Covering an area of around 116 acres (47 hectares), it is the second largest theme park in Northeast China with various advanced recreational facilities.

Discoveryland Theme Park comprises seven amusement areas scattered around a big lake, including Crazy Town, Mysterious Desert, Metal Factory, Magic Forest, Legendary Castle, Wedding Palace and American Avenue in an anticlockwise direction.

Entering the Dalian Discovery Kingdom, visitors can see a beautiful European style fountain on a large square called Discovery Square. They can take photos with the animated cartoon figures here. Passing the Discovery Square, visitors can start their discovery tours anticlockwise because the amusement areas are mainly located on the right side of the lake.

 Crazy Town
There are many amusement facilities in this town. Visitors shouldn’t miss the top spin, literally called ‘Overturning the River and Upsetting the Sea’. Just imagine how it feels if you are thrown in the air and turned over all the way round. In addition, there are some fascinating shows, such as Treasure Robbery in the Crazy Theater and Caribbean Carnival on the water stage.

 Mysterious Desert
Children’s favorites ‘Pirate Ship’ and ‘Rail Car’ can be found in this area. Also visitors can experience Crazy Kart Races and enjoy unique Middle Eastern style belly dance and fireworks shows in the evening.

 Metal Factory
The highlight in Metal Factory is the roller coaster called ‘Crazy Cobra’. With the application of linear induction motors, visitors can have a unique experience of the extreme acceleration. It just takes around 3 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 50 mph (0 to 80 kilometers per hour). The tracks twist and turn constantly, even rotate for 360 degrees at some points, especially thrilling.

 Magic Forest
Visitors can start their Amazon Exploration on a hovercraft. Meanwhile, they can enjoy themselves by experiencing the suspended roller coaster and watching an exotic show named ‘Indians Worshipping the Sun’.

 Legendary Castle
Visitors should spend some time appreciating the fantastic buildings in the castle. Also, they can challenge themselves in the ghost house. For children, they can get on the small train heading for the Kingdom of Fairy Tales. Besides, King Jocks, a famous European band, gives their best performances regularly on the Knight Square.

 Wedding Palace
Being the most beautiful and quietest place in the park, it is really a good place to hold a fairy-tale wedding.

 American Avenue
