‘Amusement park’ is not the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of Pattaya. So for families, Pattaya Park offers a good alternative to beach activities and other tourist attractions found along Sukhumvit Road.
Activities in Pattaya Park
The Water Park has a gigantic waterslide and a whirlpool where you can let yourself loose and just go with the flow. If you don’t want to get wet, head over to Fun Park and enjoy a few rides on the rollercoaster, viking, monorail, musical carousel or, for the more adventurous souls, tower shot.
Designed for young children, Fun Park is more a fairground activities park than a fully-fledged amusement park with hair-raising thrill rides. For the thrill factor, Pattaya Park Tower has a jumping platform where you can try one of the three ways to get back to the ground: Sky Shutter, Speed Shutter, or Tower Jump – depending on how much of an adrenalin rush you prefer.
If jumping off the tower is not your idea of having a good time, try having a meal at one of the three revolving restaurants up top. A choice of international buffet is available for lunch and international seafood buffet for dinner. Enjoy your meal as the backdrop of the city and ocean slowly reveal themselves. Or you can just go up to the observation deck and enjoy the views.
Good to know
Admission varies for each type of activity. The Pattaya Park Tower (open 11:00-22:00) has two types of tickets – with or without the buffet. The Fun Park (10:00-19:00) has a combination ticket; one ticket allows you on three rides. For the Water Park, you pay one price at the entrance and enjoy all the facilities inside (food and drinks cost extra).
