"The work has been in progress for three days, and it may take more than half a month to complete." said a worker who was demolishing a pirate ship.

The overall update time of this project was planned to be 3 months, the renovation included about 20 amusement items: floating bumper cars, children's castle, jungle flying squirrels, haunted house, elephant railroad train, flying chair, track cycling, merry-go-round, pirate ship, Shark Island, game center, roller skating rink, etc.

Jinxing Amusement Park, the first amusement park in Lhasa, has been a favorite park for local children for 15 years, said Fan Kuande, a worker of the amusement park. However, due to natural wear and tear, aging, man-made damage and other reasons, the pirate ship, ferris wheel and other facilities have gotten different degrees of damage, which might cause safety risks. At the same time, in order to meet the new needs of customers, the upgrading project has been launched.

On the basis of the general layout of the park's renovation project, the ferris wheel project has been canceled and would not be rebuilt after the demolition. In view of the charges after renovation, Fan Kuande introduced, it would rise moderately.
