The park's name comes from seven mountain peaks (four from Putuo Mountain and three from Crescent Mountain) which resemble the form of the Big Dipper constellation. The Chinese name of the park (pronounced Qixing) could be translated to either "Seven Star" or "Big Dipper".
The amusement rides at Seven Star Park are located within its zoo named Guilin Animal Theme Paradise (桂林动物主题乐园). The zoo charges admission on top of the admission to Seven Star Park.
The amusement rides at Seven Star Park are closest the southwest gate which is quite some distance from the main entrance that a typical taxi driver would take you to.
