Shunyi Water Olympic Park is past its prime. It still serves a purpose though of a fun day in the water but you really don’t want to be in the water because it’s pretty filthy. In fact, there is a sign that says no swimming but you will inevitably wind up in the water because the canoes aren’t very stable and the paddle boards, if you stand are not a very balanced person, you’ll end up in the lake. It was still overall pretty decent but the sporting equipment is old. We all got sick there as we had a catered lunch but it wasn’t the fault of the park but rather the catering company. There is a snack area so you can get refreshments but they are relatively costly so I’d bring a ice chest filled with beverages and food if I were you.

The setting inside the old olympic park is intriguing. On the upside you will find a full size modern rixen cable. On the downside there are only very sticky rixen obstacles. Its a bit hard to find. Took me some time to get there. I would highly recommend to take a cab and let it wait for you. There are only buses and they will take forever to take you back to the inner city and the is no subway around. I can't remember the opening hours and i haven't found the chinese homepage for the cable but once you are a wakeboarder stuck in beijing you have no options left. Check it out

Now, having the biggest water park in the world makes Beijing pretty cool in the first place, I think. But just to top it off it is in The Cube, which was built as part of the Olympic Village for Beijing 2008. It is clean, safe, well presented and not too crowded. I guess this is because of the price. I say it's not over crowded, this is relative to Beijing standards of crowded. If you enjoy the big scary slides then you are in luck. The smaller less scary slides seem to pick up the larger queues. Infact the vertical drop slide (the best slide I have ever been on) permanently has no queue, but when you get in it, all of the scared Chinese visitors will come to watch and will pulled some very scared faces at you. A couple of things to note... 1. The food is good and on average about 20 yuan, 2. You need 100 yuan refundable deposit for the locker and you pay 30 yuan. 3. Despite the website stating that it is 200 yuan a person, it is now infact 260yuan a person. 4. It gets abit chilly after a while, so if you plan the whole day there, take a big towel to keep you warm. 5. The queues are not ere at opening time, but by 12:30 it starts to get busy. 6. The wave machine has a slightly fun twist to it and the visitors love it. Suitable for young children, however these areas are more crowded than the big slides.

Two adults two kids almost US$200. About half the slides/ features were not operating. The water was barely warm and air temp just as cool: we were cold and had to leave after 2 hours. Everything looks a but tired and worn out. We weren't allowed to swim in the Olympic pool and the warm up pool was being renovated. Still, despite all I've the above, after 4 weeks travel around China, our kids had a great time. That's why I gave 2 stars.

The Olympic Park is lit up at night and once you go through the usual security procedures that happens almost everywhere in China you can walk until you heart's content. There are street vendors, a skate boarding area, older ladies exercising to music, a man leading skipping to music which all ages were obviously used to joining in - not for the feint-hearted, karaoke, acting and many of the locals just enjoying a pleasant evening walk. The lit-up buildings change colour constantly. The one draw back is the smell of the food vendors - not to everyone's taste.
