5 Activities to get Your Heart Racing in Pattaya

Posted on 27 May 2014 by ABPC

Pattaya is a magnificent coastal city in the Eastern part of Thailand. The city and the surrounding area benefit from a thriving tourist trade, thanks in part to the beautiful beaches that can be found along the coastline. However, while relaxing on the beach is certainly a pleasant way to spend a holiday it is not the only experience Pattaya has to offer. On the contrary, the city is home to some activities which may be great fun but are certainly not relaxing.


Rocket Ball

Rocket ball is a unique, quirky and utterly thrilling experience. Many of the braver visitors to Pattaya savour the adrenaline rush it offers. Two daring passengers climb into a steel ball which is suspended between two steel towers by a special, ultra-tough cord. The ball is catapulted into the air at high speed where it swings, bounces and plummets around. The rocket ball reaches heights of 50 metres and reaches speeds of more than 60 miles per hour (100km/h) in less than a second. The two bold passengers get the flight of their lives.


Zip Line

The “Flight of the Gibbon” zip line is ever-popular with thrill-seeking tourists who come to Pattaya. It provides a new and more exciting way to see Thailand’s spectacular rainforests. The jungle may be beautiful from ground level, but it is even more incredible when you get to see it from high in the treetops like a gibbon. At over 1.8 miles (3km) long, this is the longest zip line course in the world, and gives you the chance to experience a thrilling ride and admire some of the most beautiful scenery in the world.



Pattaya’s wonderful coastline is good for more than just relaxing on the beach. A number of thrilling, heart-pumping watersports can be enjoyed on the surface of the glistening sea. Water skiing is one popular option, allowing you to glide across the surface of the water behind a fast-moving speed boat. Paragliding and paramotoring, meanwhile, allow you to soar suspended in midair above the spectacular waterscape.



Sky Diving

Pattaya can be found in one of the most spectacular regions of Thailand and there is plenty of spectacular scenery. Thrill-lovers may find this scenery is best admired from a few thousand feet above. A sky dive will start with a scenic plane ride, which will give you a chance to see all kinds of terrain stretch into the distance. The ride will end not with a smooth landing but with a thrilling, high-speed descent.

Go Karting

Go Karting is a popular activity in Pattaya, and the city boasts some excellent facilities such as Pattaya Kart Speedway. Speed-demons can hurtle around a variety of race tracks in small but surprisingly speedy lightweight karts. Those who want to experience a bigger thrill and a greater challenge can tackle off-road tracks for a bumpy, muddy but thrill-packed ride. Even children can join in the fun, with child-sized karts which can be driven around special smaller racetracks.
