Thailand Photo TR: Final PArk, Dreamworld now up.

Postby dubaidave » Mon Apr 23, 2007 10:49 pm

Here's my recent trip to Thailand. I had been before but never done all the parks.
This is pretty much in Chronological order.
First up is Pattaya.
Now Pattaya gets a bad rap as a sex tourism destination, which it still is, but they are trying to attract a broader spectrum of people.
I am sure everyone knows about the Big Tower with the strange SBNO launched coaster, but you will have to wait to see that.
First up we visited Ripley's, They have the whole top floor of a shopping centre and, besides the usual Believe It Or Not museum, they have 3 other world class attractions.
A big thank you must go to the Manager of Ripley's for showing us around and allowing me to photograph places that are not normally allowed.
Also a huge thanks must go to my travelling companion, David, for putting up with me being so geeky about these attractions and, also, appearing in most of the photos.
Finally sorry to the guy with the red shirt who seemed to be following us round the attractions, and hence, was also in a lot of photos.
Enjoy

Ripley`s can easily be spotted from outside.

Haunted adventure is their latest attraction. And very good it was too.
DSC08000 (Small).JPG
There are 4 attractions here.

First up was the infinity maze.
DSC08008 (Small).JPG
I had read about this a little, but it was far better than I had imagined.

You wear white gloves...
DSC08024 (Small).JPG
....and socks
DSC08026 (Small).JPG
Then head in to the maze.
DSC08027 (Small).JPG
Here is the random guy in red.
DSC08029 (Small).JPG
Did I say thank you to David for being in all my pics? And representing.
DSC08030 (Small).JPG
You are in Pitch black and have to feel your way out of some rooms.
DSC08033 (Small).JPG
The flash doesn't really do this place justice. All the rooms had different lighting and special effects in them.
DSC08034 (Small).JPG
Yay, it`s me.
DSC08038 (Small).JPG
This place really was stunning.
DSC08040 (Small).JPG
In this room you had to push one of the square in order to open the door.
DSC08043 (Small).JPG
the bubble room
DSC08044 (Small).JPG
I know its blurry, but it gives you some idea of the colours involved.

Next up was Ripley`s Haunted adventure, motion cineama and the museum itself.
The Haunted adventure was the only place I was not allowed to photograph inside. They had a couple of actors and lots of animatronics. The best one was a man falling off a ladder.

Enjoy.

Infinity is a total rip off of the Gold Coast's version of Infinity.

Pattaya Funny Land is a, if you excuse the pun, funny little park. Located at the Pattaya Park Tower hotel It has 2 coasters a tower shot and a water park, oh and a very tall tower you can jump off.
DSC08150 (Small).JPG
The tower itself is 55 stories high.
DSC08167 (Small).JPG
DSC08186 (Small).JPG
see, I told you
DSC08187 (Small).JPG
Can you see those wires?
DSC08203 (Small).JPG
you can go down on this cable car
DSC08203 (Small).JPG
or you can jump off
DSC08211 (Small).JPG
We decided to go back down in the lift
DSC08195 (Small).JPG
DSC08207 (Small).JPG
DSC08191 (Small).JPG
The water park
DSC08192 (Small).JPG
This is the working coaster
DSC08099 (Small).JPG
Slalom is very rough. and has a strange lift hill
DSC08102 (Small).JPG
It has one of those rotating things.
DSC08121 (Small).JPG
That hits this part of the car
DSC08109 (Small).JPG
The moment of impact is not much fun
DSC08112 (Small).JPG
The ride itself is not bad
DSC08114 (Small).JPG
Its quite rough
DSC08117 (Small).JPG
But you do get a couple of pops of airtime
DSC08124 (Small).JPG
DSC08144 (Small).JPG
DSC08148 (Small).JPG
They even have an on ride photo
DSC08149 (Small).JPG
DSC08154 (Small).JPG
DSC08157 (Small).JPG
The other main ride here was the tower shot
DSC08158 (Small).JPG
The restraints didn't lock properly so you got a bit of bonus airtime when you hit the top.
DSC08159 (Small).JPG
Maybe it was just me, but this ride almost looked homemade.
DSC08164 (Small).JPG
DSC08169 (Small).JPG
I am sure this is what you have all been waiting for

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

OK here we go.
This is the infamouse launched coaster at Pattaya Park Funny Land. As far as I know it has never operated. It used a compressed air powered cable launch system. The seats have been removed as have several air tanks and a strange plunger device on the back.

I knew this coaster was in a closed section of the park so I did not think I would be able to get very close. As it happened I was able to climb all over the track.
DSC08198 (Small).JPG
The ride still looks quite good from a distance.

Here's the cable

And the remaining air tank

No we didnt turn the key. There must have been some power because they were charging batteries from the ride.

This was a bit of an unknown for me. I knew they had a shuttle loop and that was about it.
I also knew that they had recently bought 2 new coasters. Overall I thought this park was great. Unfortunately the was construction work everywhere.
Oh, and main street was a copy of disney's, well, sort of.
DSC08379 (Small).JPG
The entry plaza looks really nice.
DSC08378 (Small).JPG
But first I spy something in the car park.
DSC08383 (Small).JPG
Yay, coater track
DSC08386 (Small).JPG
Hmm whats that in the back of the photo?
DSC08388 (Small).JPG
That's not coaster track on the right.
DSC08392 (Small).JPG
Up skirt of the giant drop, also in the car par.

There is also a flying carpet ride in there somewhere
DSC08407 (Small).JPG
and a Condor I think.
DSC08395 (Small).JPG
Just in case you didn't know what type of coaster it was.
DSC08423 (Small).JPG
The track was getting a nice coast of paint.
DSC08436 (Small).JPG
