The shopping mall also features an amusement park with a monorail circling around the mall. It is 1.4 km in length and has 4 stations. The amusement park and monorail were both shut down after an accident. On 26 June 2002, a short circuit caused one train to catch fire. The train had no circuit breaker, and the passenger compartment was not protected by fireproof insulation. Two girls, 6 and 8 years old, died in the fire, and two more children were injured from jumping out of the train.[2]
