CHANGSHA -- A newly-opened amusement park in the city of Changsha, capital of Central China's Hunan province, has recently become a hot topic among local residents.

Although the park was officially opened on July 11, people had started to snap tickets up by the end of June. So far, the park has welcomed not only local residents but also stars and film crews of several popular entertainment programs.

"We can play in the water and snow here in the hot summer. It's a great place to relax and have parties," said Wu Shu, who visited the park with her friends.

Another reason why the amusement park has gone viral is that it was rebuilt above an abandoned mine measuring more than 100 meters in depth. Dubbed as "the kingdom of ice and snow on a mine," the park attracts a lot of hits on social media platforms.
