Leofoo village Theme park

How to go there: Take train to Zhongxiao Dunhua station. Exit the station, use exit 8. Take Ego bus 5350. The journey takes about 1h 30mins.

Price of the ticket.
It is the first theme park in Asia that combines both theme park and zoo together which is located in Hsinchu Country. There are total of 4 theme, areas: Wild West, South Pacific, Arabian Kingdom and African Safari.

Zoo section

The parrot

The animal feeds machine where we can purchase food for the animal to eat.

The greedy goat

The zoo is small section of the whole theme park so don't expect much from it. They have all the common animals which we can see in the farm. The most interesting part is buying the food and feeding the animals here.

Arabian kingdom

The performers
Ring of fire: I think this is the most interesting ride in this section where we can travel in circle. It would keep going round and round. The most scary part is when it stop at the top ... It is really fun and exciting.

The most interesting ride is Pagoda’s Revenge where it take u to a height of 53m and show u the magificent view of the Leofoo village. Without any warning, it release and let u experience the true fee fall. It is really quite fun. My first time trying such ride. I would say it has nice views and quite fun. There are also other rides like: Sea Serpent, Mighty Mountain Flume Adventure, Bird Flight and Captain Cook’s Swinging Boat.

Wild west

Screaming Corridor: The U shaped suspension roller coaster brought from Switzerland is the second in the world and the only in Asia. The track is 190 m long, and the roller coaster reaches 122 km/h when it rushes down its biggest drop of 56 m. The 90 second suspended experience incorporates 360° spiral acceleration and vertical dives, bringing you the excitement and thrills of an eagle in flight. It is really scary that I don't even dare to try it. Just looking at it already scare me off ...

Overall, it is nice theme park to spend a day playing with the animals and enjoying all the rides. Furthermore if u are visiting during June to September, Leofoo Water Park is opened. It is just next to the Leofoo village theme park.
