OFFBEAT THAILAND FOR FAMILY: THE WORLD’S FIRST & BIGGEST CARTOON NETWORK THEMED WATER-PARK IS IN PATTAYA.
Not many know that the first and only Cartoon Network themed water park in the world is in Pattaya, Thailand! This is family friendly destination and offbeat Thailand at its best! I also discovered offbeat Bangkok on my last trip to Thailand.
It was a revelation to me too. I did not know about it until I visited it myself. There is still (as on 2018) no other Cartoon Network themed water park in the world which is a big thing considering the immense popularity of the Cartoon Network.
No wonder, families and group of close friends throng here and enjoy it all day long. That is what I witnessed when I paid a visit to Cartoon Network Amazone myself. The large campus has everything you can think of viz. shops, clean loos, food courts, spa, the works! And oh, they have free wi-fi too. But who wants to use the wi-fi when there is so much of action happening here! Both locals and foreign tourists love visiting this water park. What makes it easily accessible is the fact that it is just 20 minutes drive away from the bustling city of Pattaya.
WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT CARTOON NETWORK AMAZONE WITH FAMILY & FRIENDS?
The Cartoon network Amazone appeals to both kids and adults. It has something for every-one. There is so much to do here, be it rides or shows, or food and beverage outlets, there is never a dull moment here! It is ideal for families and group of close friends and even office buddies.
There are many activities to keep you busy all day. The kids would love to hang out or even party with their favourite toon characters from BMO, Princess Bubblegum, Marceline, Ice King, the Land of Ooo and others.

FOLKS AT CARTOON NETWORK AMAZONE WELCOME YOU IN STYLE:
No sooner did I step inside the Cartoon Network Amazone, drumbeats attracted my attention. I along-with my co travelers made a semi circle to watch the show which had just begun. Young girls and boys did jaw dropping stunts and dance moves and kept the audience enthralled.
The boys spewed fire from their mouths while girls danced like a dream balancing fire on both their hands. The complimentary show also included acrobatic jaw performances. It lasted for around 20 minutes. Known as ‘The Polynesian fire show’, it is performed daily at 6 p.m. So, make sure you do not miss it when you are here.
