The number of available extreme sports and activities in Pattaya has grown considerably in recent years. I think it’s fair to say, among other things, Pattaya has become one of the most thrilling cities in Thailand.
More importantly, you can get your thrills cheaper than cheap in Pattaya. In fact, if you know where to get cheap tickets to attractions in Pattaya, you can save a fortune on all your sightseeing tours, shows, and activities in Pattaya.
Let’s take a look at some of the best things to do in Pattaya for thrill seekers, adrenaline junkies, and extreme sports enthusiasts.
Pattaya Extreme Sports & Activities
NOTE: If I have my own images or video available, I will include them. Otherwise, I will just leave a brief summary. You can find images and info on the operator’s official websites.
Flight of the Gibbon Pattaya
Zip-lining from tree to tree, walking rope bridges, and abseiling might sound a little scary, but if I can do it, I’m sure you can. I also have a fear of heights, and no way could I ever imagine jumping out of a plane, or off the top of a Bungy tower. But after a little trepidation on the first ride, our day at Flight of The Gibbon was thrilling and extremely enjoyable, and I do highly recommend it.
Read the review, enjoy the photos and watch the video of myself, my wife, and my mother at Flight of The Gibbon in Pattaya.
Pattaya Bungy (Bungee) Jump & Human Slingshot at Sanook Park
Bungy (bungee) jumping and the Human Slingshot are two of the most extreme (scariest) participation adventures in Pattaya. I’m afraid (I mean, I’m chicken) there’s no personal review from me, but you can watch my Bungy and Human Slingshot videos by following the links, below.
Pattaya Bungy (bungee) Jump, standing at 60 meters high, claims to be the highest bungy jump in Thailand.
The Human Slingshot is probably best described as a horizontal bungee jump. You will experience forces of 4G and accelerate from 0 to 150 kilometers per hour in a second or less.
More activities at Sanook Park
At Sanook Park, you can also find the Pattaya Kart Speedway go-kart racing track, kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding, lake scuba diving, a paintball park, and a water adventure park similar to the now-closed Pattaya Splashdown Water Park.

Columbia Pictures Aquaverse (formerly Cartoon Network Amazone Water Park)
Cartoon Network Amazone, now the Columbia Pictures Aquaverse, was the first fully themed adventure water park in Pattaya. It is the most easily accessible if you don’t have your own transport. Popular opinion suggests Cartoon Network Amazone has the most thrilling (scariest) rides in Pattaya. You can find some insightful tips on my Cartoon Network Amazone trip report.
Ramayana Water Park
In my Ramayana water park trip report, my kids said Ramayana is the best water park in Pattaya, they prefer the rides at Ramayana, but their opinion is based on the “thrill” grade of the rides they like to use. Ramayana is also my favorite water park, simply because it’s more spacious and cheaper than Cartoon Network Amazone.
Tandem Sky Diving in Pattaya
Even in Pattaya, Sky diving is arguably one of the most extremely thrilling things you can do, perhaps even surpassing a ride on a motorcycle taxi, or witnessing your first ping pong show.
You can do a tandem skydive from 13 – 14,000 feet with a qualified instructor in Pattaya without any prior training. Let me know how it goes!!.
