Many visitors applauded the park's effort, with some voluntarily paying extra for the food.
On Monday, a total of 1,200 tourists queued for the lunch treat, while the park received 1,275 yuan from the cash box.
"One yuan for a bowl of noodle soup, a sausage and a bun is so worthy," a local visitor told China News. "I decided to pay five extra bucks since they've offered us such a good treat."
"Food price keeps rising in other tourist spots," another tourist from north China's Hebei Province said. "I've never seen a food meal service like this."
