First Reports of The Cartoon Network Water Park

Posted on 13 September 2014 by ABPC

The Cartoon Network Amazone finally opened it’s door on 31 July after several delays. The long anticipated water park is located in Bang Saray, about 15 minutes drive to the south of Pattaya and features a total of nine entertainment zones that are based on Cartoon Network’s shows. Six zones are already completed with the remaining three due to open later in the year. When everything is completed it is reputed to be the largest water park in Asia.

The park has drawn the usual criticism for it’s dual pricing policy. Foreigner adults are charged THB1590 and children THB1190 so it isn’t a cheap family afternoon. Thais nationals are charged THB1290 for adults and THB890 for children. Annual passes are available ranging between THB7000 and THB12,990 for adults.

We spoke to the Martin family from Scotland to give us their thoughts. Mr. Martin said “the kids really enjoy it and the choice of slides, flumes etc is fantastic. It was a great day out for the family but a little expensive to go more then once in our 2 week holiday”

Another guest who we spoke to was Mr. Martinez originally from Florida but now working over here. Mr Martinez was also complimentary about the facilities on offer commenting that “these are comparable with the great water parks in Florida. They really have done a great job. To be honest I am a little surprised how good it is and was very sceptical. The kids have been pestering to come since they found it had opened.” Mr Martinez son Josh went on further. “The place is really swell! I want to come every week! I will never get bored of a place like this!”

Generally speaking people seem very impressed with the facilities and excited to see the entire park open. A quality water park has been required for some time with Pattaya Park in Jomtien still popular, but starting to show it’s age. The fact that it is backed by the Cartoon Network and the large amount of money (reportedly THB1 billion) that has been invested in the project certainly helps. Everything appears to be of good quality, which you would expect, only drawback seems to be the price but it could get reviewed at a later date if needed, only time will tell!
