According to Xiamen TV, the largest cultural theme park in Fujian province, Xiamen Fantawild Theme Park, is now testing its rides and facilities and is set to open to the public in mid or late March this year.

Wang Lianshan, the director of the equipment management center of Xiamen Fantawild Theme Park, revealed that the park’s main gate, ticket halls and iconic Fantawild Castle have all begun to take shape now.

According to Wang there will be a small roller coaster for children at the south of the theme park, along with a large roller coaster designed for adults in the north of the park. It is believed that the 287m-long roller coaster will be the highest in mainland China, with its highest point 37 meters, and a maximum speed of 80kmh, in comparison with the roller coaster in Shenzhen Happy Valley.
