Enter the Dragon

Atlas Obscura recently wrote about an escalator we hadn’t seen before. Only 85 km or so from Beijing, Longqing Gorge may feature China’s largest dam, but the bigger draw for some of us is its long escalator escalator system shrouded by an aggressive-looking dragon. It takes visitors up a staggering 258 m to the top of the dam. Is that a world record, as the article says, or is it still the Central-Mid-Levels system in Hong Kong?

Not only do you get to ride the escalators and see the damn at the gorge, a cable car and boats can be rode, and you can even bungee jump. Getting down is only by one of those ways, or by the stairs or a toboggan, because this wyvern only winds upward.
