Worlds First Cartoon Network Waterpark Opens on October 3

Bang Saray, Thailand (1 October, 2014) Cartoon Network Amazone, the world’s first Cartoon Network-themed waterpark, will open its doors to the general public on Friday, October 3, 2014.

This one-of-a-kind and first-in-the-world waterpark features 30 breathtaking state-of-the-art water rides and slides, live Cartoon Network entertainment shows, mascot meet and greets, thrills attractions and interactive water play fun for the entire family.

“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 The Powerpuff Girls, Ben 10, Adventure Time and the only place where our fans can do meet and greets with their favorite 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,” said Liakat Dhanji, Chairman of Amazon Falls Co. Ltd., the owner and developer of the park.

Located less than 20 minutes from Pattaya City, Thailand and only 90 minutes from Bangkok Suvarnabhumi International Airport, 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 admittance capacity will gradually be raised in November to meet with anticipated high season demands from tourists and local Thai visitors and will open daily from 10am-6pm all year round.

“Turner International is very proud that the world’s first Cartoon Network themed waterpark opens here in Asia, in Bang Saray, Thailand. 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,” said Ricky Ow, President, Turner International Asia Pacific. “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 TrueVisions platform, Toonami’s strong appeal amongst boys and Boomerang being the dominant No. 1 CabSat TV kids channel in the market place.”
