Chimelong

The Chimelong Group offers a variety of attractions for visitors including a circus, a waterpark and a theme park. Chimelong Paradise Amusement Park is one of China's largest theme parks and it is recognised internationally as a quality park (one of its rollercoasters is featured in the Guiness Book of Records!). The park has over 70 rides and is guaranteed to delight the thrill seeker and kids of all ages. The water world section boasts the largest water stunt show in the world and is a famously fun place to spend a sunny day. The Chimelong International Circus is the world's largest permanent circus and the theatre can hold nearly 7,000 people. Despite the vast numbers it can accommodate, it is an endlessly popular show and it is recommended that visitors book their tickets in advance, especially if going over the weekend. This can be done online. The Chimelong International Circus includes award winning acts from all over the world and its set, lighting, and costume design is fantastic. The Chimelong park and circus top the list for many families when it comes to things to do in Guangzhou.
