“Time Tunnel - 1970's Fun Park Arcade”

“Price increase”
A pedestrian-only tunnel crossing the Bund, this fun and unique form of public transportation is a pricey but quick way to get across the river on foot. The experience is a bit reminiscent of a Disney Tomorrowland attraction.

Right in front of the Oriental Riverside hotel is the eastern entrance to the Bund tunnel. So we wondered off down the steps and arrived at a hall with various craftsman advertising their wares. The ticket booth advertises 3 experiences: - sea life $30 -...More

Expectations were low coming in, but the operators see you coming and are not shy about it. There is nothing to 'sightsee' in the Tunnel. It's like an imitation Disney ride more than anything else, with a low end light show and not much else....More

Whilst a good way to cross the river (but costly), going down the escalators to the tunnel was like going backwards in time to the 70's when darkness and static lights were a "cool" attraction. The ride across is in a little cabin, with the...More

We opted for this attraction to cross from Pudong to the Bund because it would land us right on the promenade. 10 minute walk to the tunnel from the Pearl Tower ticket booth. Apparently prices have gone up. A basic one-way ticket across the river...More

As a way to get from The Bund to The Pudong New Area, under the Huangpu River, this tunnel/attraction is fine. It is quick, 3 to 4 minutes, and has very colourful light displays on the way but seemed to lack 'atmosphere'. At the other...More

The Sightseeing Tunnel costs 70 yuans RT, which is rather expensive for a trip under the river that lasts about 3 min. However, depending on where you want to go it may be convenient. There is a light show while you travel in a small...More

Don't come here expecting something good. It is cheesy, tacky and expensive for what it is. Do it once and never again. But it is an easy way to cross the river.

If you have money left you can do it but several of the lights were broken and the effects are also not really a must see. If you are anyhow at the bund and lazy one might do it to save some time but to...More

In a nutshell: There is no sightseeing; the price is ridiculously high; and the LED light show is boring. But the quick transport from one side of the Huangpu River to the other -- about 4 minutes -- kept me from giving this attraction a...More

The Bund
While there are certainly many other “bunds” in the
world, “the Bund” refers to Shanghai’s famous
waterfront. The area’s Gothic, Art Deco and Beaux Arts
monoliths were built when it was part of the Shanghai
International Settlement run by the British and
Americans. The atmosphere of colonial-era luxury has
endured over time and is now found in the five-star
hotels, luxury brand boutiques and expensive
