Well this trip was a right mess, hopefully that makes for a good read. First day was cut in half by a 'rescheduling' of the flight. Not that this really mattered in the end (spoilers). Touched down in Shenyang halfway through the day. Apparently there's no legit public transport from the airport to the city. Ended up with a taxi ride that seemed to take forever. Bloke was friendly though. Checked into the hotel. Still time for a few creds. Took the metro to somewhere vaguely near a backup plan park. Strolled through a nice green space from there, but no surprise creds in sight. Always forget how massive everywhere is in China, so the plan to walk it was becoming a burden and ended up jumping on a bus to... Day 1 - Nanhu Park Always good to start strong. One of those 'stick a grubby amusement park in the back of some trees in the city' places that China does so well. Walked past various other activities like karaoke in the pagoda, karaoke on the bridge and karaoke on the riverbank. Varying quality. Eventually stumbled into the hustle and bustle of the amusement area. Turned down about 50 people wanting customers for some dodgy flats. Nah mate, creds only. First person to earn some money was standing outside this thing, somehow managed to negotiate a 2 for 1 deal out of him. Classic spinner. Has the ability to spin from the top of the lift, but the poor trackwork never allows it to pick up enough speed to do anything much. A proper beast was up next, looking lonely and abandoned. Old woman was running some crappy flat in front and beckoned. No no, open the cred for us. Money in hand, how could they say no? Loved this one. Such character. Before we could sit in the train, a musty old cushion was placed on the seat for us. After squeezing in, a second musty old cushion was wedged in between my left side and the train. I like where this is headed. Got 3 laps of pure comedy, each time the lift struggling more and more to engage while breaking our backs. Need to relocate that cushion. JUNGLE MOUSE! I'm ashamed to say that I've had to enter the country 5 times to get one of these, so happy to finally do it. Close your eyes and the spirit of Wild Mouse lives on. Minus the air time. Headed over a bridge to a more barren section of the park for the big boy. Now some damage could be done. Guy was delighted to have a customer and immediately jumped on the mic to try and churn up some more business with me as poster boy. Nah. No one was buying it. Off we go then. Ride starts with a slow helix of doom that builds tension before you plunge into the undersized loop. Loop was pretty grim, something akin to a donkey punch. Rest was manageable. Final and most shameful cred was a worm thing, but it was abandoned and parked in the wrong place, so that didn't happen. Pity, probably one of the few that would let adults on. Here's a depressed monkey instead: Jumped on the ferris wheel opposite for some views. Boat thing on a zipwire there that I expected to go into the water or something. Nope. Pods didn't smoothly follow with gravity, rather lurched and grated in stages, so it felt a little sketchy. Not the worst wheel of the trip though. Satisfied, called it a day.
