At the beginning of April we went to Thailand. I will let the photos do the talking. Again I need to thank my long suffering freind, David, for allowing me to drag him around theme parks in 99% humidity, and for graciously wearing the TPR Tea shirt.
On the flight from Bangkok to Phuket we saw the coaster at Pattaya.
Phuket Fantasea was quite interesting.
They had a very colorful black lit games area
It also boasted the most impressively themed toilets I have ever seen
The first park in Bangkok was Siam Park City.
If anyone saw my trip report last year, you will know that the main draw of this park was rides in the parking lot, ready to be assembled.
And it didn`t disappoint this time either
Lat year it was coasters in the parking lot, but this year, it was more flats.
These are the surviving logs from the flume of death
There were some coaster cars, but no track.
We will move into the park in the next installment
I have to say that in the year since I last visited this park they have made massive improvements. Several of the old rides have been removed and all the coasters and rides that were in the car park have been installed.
Just for the record, the SLC was easily as good as Infusion, if not better, and had the added benefit of no wait and you could stay on if you wanted.
I think this was advertising the Jurassic Park ride.
First up, the boomerang.
It was, well, a Boomerang
Not much more top say about it
Except to say it hurt like hell
And made us both feel sick
This ride has never been open, both times I have visited.
I was just at Siam Park City yesterday. I agree the SLC was very smooth in the front row and the best Vekoma SLC I have ever been on. The middle of the train was pretty rough for me and the back wasn't exactly pleasant. Vortex was my 200th credit and even though I was sad that my 200th had to be a Vekoma SLC, at least it was a decent one!
The park really is a mixed bag. Half of it seems new and the other half rotting, but it looks like they are putting a lot into expansion. The malaria zoo was a little scary, because one of the monkeys grabbed my shoe from below and started to grab it. The animals weren't very happy at all! Also, the Jurassic Park Jeep ride was blah and the park really lacked character. I also think the water park was disappointing since they advertise it as the largest in Asia and it only has two slide towers!
I am still catching up my TRs, but I should have this park in about a month. Thanks for the great pictures. Wonder World was also a crazy park. I visited there a couple of weeks ago. Those two coasters look great, but I wonder why they have never operated. Do you know? I asked, but no one spoke English so I couldn't get an answer. Keep it coming!
I write about how to travel the world for pennies on the dollar at Miles To Memories!
dave, I remember your last trip to BKK that you posted here.
we are frequent visitors to the land of smiles and look forward to retiring there later on
next time you are there, look for a Thai carnival!!!!!! Its like a ghetto fair, but Thai style! Awesome! Last one we went to had a game with this huge circle and numbers painted above holes around the circle. You "bought" a number for the game, then they brought out this HUGE rat type animal and shook it around in a bucket till it was dizzy, then let it go. If it ran into your numbered hole you win!!!! Weird
Anyway we loved your pics and look forward to more!
