Cartoon Network Amazone themed waterpark opens in Thailand
The world’s first Cartoon Network Amazone themed Waterpark has opened at Bang Saray on Thailand’s east coast.
The all-new attraction offers a range of state-of-the-art attractions including 30 water rides and slides, live Cartoon Network entertainment shows, mascot meet and greets, thrills attractions and interactive water play fun for the entire family.
The waterpark also features dynamic social and interactive features and captivating live and multimedia entertainment that incorporates the latest in interactive smart-screen technology - bringing fans of Cartoon Network closer to their favorite characters than ever before.
Introducing the attraction, Liakat Dhanji, Chairman of Amazon Falls Co. Ltd., the owner and developer of the park, explained “what sets Cartoon Network Amazone apart from any waterpark in the world is that this is the new home away from home of Cartoon Network's beloved heroes such as Powerpuff Girls, Ben 10, Adventure Time and the only place where our fans can do meet and greets with their favourite characters every day while they enjoy our live shows.
“We made a decision from day one that this park would 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 be equally as important as the water attractions."
Located less than 20 minutes from Pattaya City, Thailand and a two-hour drive from Bangkok, Thailand's newest and largest international waterpark will initially admit up to 1,000 visitors per day in October to ensure that the intended customer experience is successfully delivered as the park continues to fine-tune operations.
The park's admittance capacity will gradually be raised in November to meet with anticipated high season demands from tourists and local Thai visitors.
Commenting on the link with US-based entertainment giant, Turner International Asia Pacific President Ricky Ow adds "Turner International is very proud that the world's first Cartoon Network themed water park in the opens here in Asia.
“The park truly enables millions of Cartoon Network fans in Thailand, around Asia Pacific and the world to experience the brand they love so much in another unique way.
"With the opening of the Park, Thailand becomes a model market for our Kids brands with Cartoon Network enjoying double digit audience growth on the TrueVision platform, Toonami's strong appeal amongst boys and Boomerang being the dominant#1 CabSat TV kids channel in the market place."
Cartoon Network Amazone is a licensed agreement between Amazon Falls Co. Ltd., the development of the waterpark,and Turner International AsiaPacific, the owner and operator of Cartoon Network.
