There are 4 different theme areas in this theme park:
  • South Pacific

  • Arabian Kingdom
  • African Safari
Although its December month and it supposed to be winter..but I think doomsday causing the weather to be abnormal - it was freaking hot (~24-28 degrees) during winter month..and not good for an outing day at the theme park la !!!

While waiting for Jen queuing again for the Little Rattler ride, mummy and me found out there is a photo shoot place for this series "Inborn Pair". I just started watching this show when I'm back home now..although it's a very long 80 episode's really a nice and recommended series for those who love Taiwanese series!

Synopsis of the "Inborn Pair" series:
    Inborn Pair is about a resort president (also grandma’s boy) Ke Wei Xiang, who has the career he wants and is instead looking for his special someone. His grandma has betrothed Wei Xiang when he was still in the womb to the granddaughter of the man who saved her life, and grandma has been dreaming of the day her grandson can fulfill her promise. Wei Xiang is the reverse of the haughty, cold, and rude chaebol. He’s instead very considerate and kind, and he doesn’t have the heart to say no to his grandma’s lifelong dream.
    The heroine Song Yi Jie is a legal assistant at a law firm who is in the process of obtaining her lawyer’s license. She’s a righteous young woman who believes in standing up for justice and doesn’t care for love when she’s got a career to pursue. Episode 1 has Yi Jie and Wei Xiang meeting cute when she pretends to be the lover of a sleazy man so that his wife can obtain the evidence to force him sign divorce papers. On her way to the rendezvous, she chances upon a woman tearfully accusing Wei Xiang of breaking her heart (but in truth the woman is his daft subordinate). Wei Xiang thinks Yi Jie is a “Xiao San” (homewrecker) while Yi Jie mistakes Wei Xiang for a lothario who toys with women.

Overall this theme park is kinda small but its sufficient for a weekend family outing for those staying in Taiwan. One good thing about this park don't have to queue very long especially for those hot rides compared to theme parks like Disneyland or Universal Studios. You can really enjoy unlimited number of  rides you want..that's why Jen able to tried out so many rides.
