Chime Long Paradise opened recently with an Intamin 10 Loop coaster (clone of Colossus), Intamin Half-Pipe and a Vekoma Booster Bike.

Wow! A double-decker carrousel. Who'd have thunk? ;)
Thanks for sharing. According to rcdb there are a few more coasters:
By the way, if you use babelfish to translate from Simplified Chinese, you'll learn that the park name means Long Prosperous Happy World.
Now there's a place I want to go to! ;)

Whats the story with that Top Spin with the arms running in different speeds? That looks like it could be pretty wild.

The Vekoma Booster Bike looks pretty nifty, is this the first ride of its kind to publicly open anywhere in the world?. I've seen the computer renditions before but this is the first time seeing the actual ride built.

What about THIS ?http://www.pbase.com/rollergator/image/58522539
Please tell me I'm not the only one who immediately thought of South Park and Mr. Mackey's "alternative to flying"... ;)

Actually it's the third operational Vekoma Motorbike coaster. I just want to know when we'll get one over here.
It doesn't look like they have to manipulate all the different levers and toggles like on Mr. Mackeys machine, which means it's probably a more comfortable ride. At least for me! ;)
I didn't know communists could have fun. Who woulda thunk it? ;)

Is there anywhere to go to get photos of this coaster? Some Web page that has English on it?

I'm pretty sure I could watch the animation at the bottom of their website for hours.
