Chime-Long Paradise (Chinese: 长隆欢乐世界) is a major amusement park in Panyu District, Guangzhou, Guangdong, China. Opened on April 12, 2006, Chime-Long Paradise is the largest amusement park in China and boasts the 10 Inversion Roller Coaster, which prior to the opening of The Smiler at Alton Towers, England shared the record for most inversions with Colossus at Thorpe Park in Surrey, England.[1] It is classified as a AAAAA scenic area by the China National Tourism Administration.[2]

Chime-Long Paradise is operated by the Chime-Long Group, a Chinese tourism company that also operates numerous other attractions, including the Chime-Long Circus and Panyu Xiangjiang Safari Park. Chime-Long Group reported that construction of the park cost over 1 billion RMB. Stretching over 60 hectares, the park currently contains more than 60 attractions and has a daily capacity of 50,000 visitors. It recently built in a new rollercoaster that is nearly 61 m tall (200 ft) and reaches a maximum speed of 105 kilometres per hour (65 mph).[3]

On July 29, 2014, rare giant panda cub triplets, all three of which have thus far survived, were born at the Chimelong Safari Park, in Guangzhou, in south China's Guangdong Province.[4]
