The worlds biggest building, with the worlds biggest television and the worlds biggest wave pool, so hardly surprising that the World Global Centre should also include a water park. There are a whole hosts of ways to enjoy yourself here such as AquaPlay, Rain Fortress, Abyss, Family Raft Ride, Whizzard, AquaLoop, Ropes Course, Freefall Plus, AquaTube and Wave River. Overall, the double flow rider proves to be one of the best and most popular. The surf-simulator is hours of fun. No need to be a pro-surfer, you can get a body board and just enjoy the waves.

Professional downhill bikers blast down steep and complex mountainous terrains on bicycles at speed of 50 to 80km/h or even faster, so the excitement can definitely getvextreme.

The club was opened in June 2020. I was the manager of Chengdu Skydive Club. Got to know this biz well.
So far, Chengdu has the only club in the West, close to Dujiangyan Dam and Mt.Qingcheng.
Chengdu is nowhere near the sea, but it can’t stop us from having fun on water.

There are mixed reviews about the snow coverage in Xiling Snow Mountain, so be sure to call ahead and check conditions before you travel. Buses run from Xinnanmen Bus Station 新南门车站, Chadianzi Bus Station 茶店子车站 and East City Bus station 成都东客站 to Xiling XueShan and take two to three Hours.
The highest mountain is 5364 meters and suitable for professional and novice skiers alike. You can rent ski gear (skis, boots and ski poles) from the ski resort. It can be a difficult trip if you don’t speak Chinese and given the up and down weather of Chengdu good snow is not guaranteed. However, it is not too far away and can be the perfect cure when you just want to hit the slope.
Ticket prices are fluctuating and details can be found via https://you.ctrip.com/sight/xilingsnowmountain1484/4349.html#ctm_ref=www_hp_bs_lst

If you don’t want to make the full trip up the mountain then dry slope skiing is the answer. Located about ten minute drive from Incubation Park metro station (taxi should cost about 11-15 RMB, though it may be more during peak times). The English of the staff is not great which can make the process of getting skis fitted a little long winded but once you get onto the slope you will soon forget all about it. The slope is not very busy so you will usually only be sharing the slopes with a few other people. They also offer classes if you are looking to improve your skiing.
