Design friend @ssshaona posted a link to information about the new “Happy Magic Water Park” in Beijing. The Water Cube of the Beijing Olympic park has undergone renovations to be transformed into an indoor water park. After reading the blurb, more than 1 friend here in Beijing has mentioned of hearing the same! Looks like it opened on August 8, just over a month ago. Can’t wait to see what this water park with slides, lazy river, and wave pool is like. Will it compare to Bostonians’ (or New Englander’s) childhood memory of WaterCountry? Has anyone already been to the Happy Magic Water Park? The renderings look absolutely delightful! And it’s perfect for this end of summer heat!
我设计师朋友在她的post介绍北京的新“Happy Magic Water Park”，他们装修北京奥运的水立方当这个‘水公园’。 让我记的我小的时候在水公园玩。北京的 “Happy Magic Water Park” 八月八号开门，你们去过吗？我很想去看看玩玩。最近的天气在水玩真会舒服。

This is awesome! I would love to visit. I saw it in april of 2009, however it was just the normal old olympic pools! It would be great to see the summer light shows they put on there too! I want to go back to Beijing so badly now!
