Mega Coaster Parks - apparently an American thing...

Uh, Timber-Rider, if you plan on going to Great America, don't expect to get a lap on Iron Wolf...

I wish I could post a pic or a link (I'm terrible at the internets) but check out the area around GuangZhou and Hong Kong in China on It's got probably fifty different places with at least 1 coaster. The public park had a roller coaster, but I can't imagine all fifty public parks in the area needed their own. I still haven't figured out why this is the pattern of roller coaster growth in China. Shanghai is a little like it but to a lesser extent.

It probably has something to do with the economy boom in China. A similar pattern happened in the US in the 1920s.
