THAILAND The world’s first Cartoon Network-themed waterpark will be located in Bang Saray, close to Pattaya on Thailand’s east coast. Scheduled to open in 2013, and named Cartoon Network AMAZONE, the waterpark is a nod to the lush Amazon rainforest, featuring exciting signature attractions including a gigantic family wave pool, a winding adventure river, speed-racing slides, and one of the world’s largest interactive water play fortresses for kids. The park will be infused throughout by Cartoon Network’s famous “toon” heroes and most popular animated series, including Ben 10, The Powerpuff Girls, Johnny Bravo and The Amazing World of Gumball.
“We are very proud to have Thailand as the spectacular backdrop for the world’s first Cartoon Network-themed waterpark,” said Sunny Saha, senior vice-president and managing director, Turner Broadcasting System Asia Pacific. “Thailand’s reputation as the Land of Smiles and perfect weather will ensure a memorable visit for guests of all ages.”
Liakat Dhanji, chairman of Amazon Falls Co Ltd, the park’s developer, added: “Thailand has excellent tourism credentials, a vibrant culture and also the most welcoming people in the world. The addition of Cartoon Network AMAZONE marks Thailand’s very first internationally branded water theme park.”
