Many people say that Pattaya Water Park, commonly referred to as “Pattaya Park” is showing it’s age, that might be true, it would certainly be nice to see a few re-vamps, especially in the seating department. There is no denying that Pattaya Park still has appeal. Pattaya Park is still one of the best value days out you can have in Pattaya, it may not offer the same thrills and variety as Cartoon Network Amazone, but at around 100 baht per person it is still a good value day out.
Pattaya Water Park opening times and entrance fee.
Opening times and entrance fees, even according to their own website, are subject to change so don’t expect my quote of 100 baht to be correct, the best advice I can give you is to call them on 038-251201. I’m not sure if there is a double pricing policy as is used by so many other tourist attractions in Pattaya.
Getting to Pattaya Park.
Pattaya Park is located at the bottom of Thappraya Soi 12, off Thappraya Road, Jomtien, the park is an integral feature of the Pattaya Park Beach Resort and also includes hotel accommodation, Funny Land and Pattaya Park Tower, use this map of Pattaya Park to find directions.
What is there to do at Pattaya Park.
As the name suggests, it’s about having fun in the water, the main feature of Pattaya Park is the water concourse (see first photo below) which actually flows around the park, there is a large, separate pool for toddlers featuring a fountain, and another pool has water slides of various heights, suitable for young children and adults alike. There are children’s fun rides at Funny Land, a roller coaster, a monorail, viking swing and Tower Shot.
In the photo (above) you can see the layout of Pattaya Park, featuring the water concourse, the overhead monorail and the roller coaster, and as you can see, Pattaya Park is situated conveniently close to Pattaya Park and Dongtan Beaches.
All this talk of Pattaya Park being old and tired matters not a hoot to the kids, a good old water slide (pictured above) will keep them entertained all day long.
Nothing wrong with the layout of Pattaya Park, shelters are positioned around the edge of the water concourse (get their early if you want a good seat) but the seats leave a lot to be desired, you have a choice of cumbersome deck chair or rigid plastic.
Roller Coaster rides (photo above) and rides in Funny Land are not inclusive of the price.
There is a fantastic view from the top Pattaya Park Tower, and a revolving restaurant, it’s a long way up, and a long way down, the tower is about 170 meters high, supposedly the highest seaside tower on the east coast of Thailand. If you’re not overcome by vertigo you can take a cable car ride down to the bottom, if you’re mad as a hatter brave you can get strapped into a harness and ride down solo, like the brave soul in the photo above.
