8. Quarry and Smurfs

After building the world's first luxury hotel in an abandoned quarry, Shimao Group, the developer of InterContinental Shanghai Wonderland, has now added an adventure park next to the hotel.

Covering an area of more than 60,000 square meters, the park is situated at the mouth of the 90-meter-deep quarry and is the first theme park in China dedicated to the blue-skinned Smurfs.

Unlike the hotel, which has 16 of its 18 floors underground, the park is located entirely on the ground. However, the location has allowed it to include thrill-seeking facilities such as a glass walkway suspended 88 meters above the bottom of the quarry. There are also giant tree houses decorated with Smurf elements and an "oxygen bar" for visitors to check out.
