Turner Broadcasting System Asia Pacific will open the world’s first Cartoon Network-themed waterpark in Bang Saray, Thailand in 2013.
The waterpark, named Cartoon Network Amazone, will feature an Amazon Rainforest theme, as well as Cartoon Network properties including Ben 10, The Powerpuff Girls, Johnny Bravo and The Amazing World of Gumball.
Attractions will include a family wave pool, a winding adventure river, speed-racing slides, family raft rides and one of the world's largest interactive water play fortresses for kids.
Developed in conjunction with Amazon Falls Co., the park aims to attract up to 800,000 visitors a year when fully operational.
“Cartoon Network is all about the fun and energy of the playground, and the addition of Cartoon Network Amazone means that families can literally step into our vibrant world of animation and vacation with their favorite characters like never before,” says Sunny Saha, senior vice president and managing director, Turner Broadcasting System Asia Pacific. “We are very proud to have Thailand as the spectacular backdrop for the world’s first Cartoon Network-themed waterpark. Thailand’s reputation as the Land of Smiles and perfect weather will ensure a memorable visit for guests of all ages.”
