The highly-anticipated Cartoon Network Amazone waterpark has opened its doors on 3 October, 2014. This one-of-a-kind and first in the world waterpark boasts 30 world-class water rides and slides, live Cartoon Network entertainment shows, mascot meet and greets, thrills attractions and interactive water play fun.
Mr. Thawatchai Arunyik, the Governor of Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) said, “The Cartoon Network Amazone waterpark will certainly become a must-visit attraction for tourists visiting Thailand, especially Pattaya. Cartoon Network’s characters are well-known and much-loved around the world, and we appreciate Amazon Falls and Turner International Asia Pacific for bringing the life of Cartoon Network’s heroes to Thailand in this one-of-a-kind attraction.”
Cartoon Network Amazone is Thailand’s first international water theme park, as well as the new home away from home of Cartoon Network’s beloved heroes; such as, the Powerpuff Girls, Ben 10 and Adventure Time. The facility is a licensed agreement between Amazon Falls, the developer of the waterpark, and Turner International Asia Pacific, the owner and operator of the Cartoon Network.
The waterpark has been designed to be a ‘daycation’ destination – an attraction like no other in Thailand or in Asia, a place where music and live entertainment with Cartoon Network characters would equally be as important as the water attractions, according to Mr. Liakat Dhanji, Chairman of Amazon Falls.
Cartoon Network Amazone waterpark features 10 themed-entertainment zones and also boasts captivating live and multimedia entertainment that incorporates the latest in interactive smart-screen technology.
The Omniverse Zone boasts some of the fastest water rollercoasters in the world, including a splash landing from a massive 23.4-metre high tower while the Adventure Zone is filled with spins, twists, tunnels and turns. The Cartoonival Zone has more than 150 water features to discover and is where fans can hang out with Ben 10, Chowder, the Powerpuff Girls and all other favourite Cartoon Network friends.
The Riptide Rapids is where guests of all ages can grab an inner tube at any of the landings along the 335-metre long route and ease into the relaxing retreat of this continuous flowing river that winds its way around Cartoon Network Amazone. The Mega Wave Zone is the place to bob up and down on the gentle waves or boogie board on the wavy waters while the Surfarena comes with flowrider instructors to teach new tricks and spins on surfing the waves that roll out at 56 kph.
Cartoon Network Amazone is located in the small seaside town of Bangsaray, about a 20-minute drive from Pattaya City and less than two hours from Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport. Open daily from 10.00 – 18.00 hrs.
