There are three commanding heights in this "Jungle Flying Dragon", each of which is the focus of maintenance. With a hammer, spanner and a tape,Huang climbed the 38.5 meter roller coaster. After reaching the commanding heights, he started a series of activities  such as orbital flaw detection, screwing and measuring of gauge. He was calm and consistent throughout the whole process. He told reporters that he was afraid of heights when he first did the job. He had to force himself to get over it, and he got used to it. Now, he sometimes even enjoys the feeling of having a "small mountain view".

This is the most rigorous assessment of the experience and skills of a maintenance man, and Huang has always been able to lead his team to complete the task in high quality.
