What people are saying about Phuket

Everything you want from a water park. A bit expensive for the "houses" you can rent. Most were empty, so why not lower the price a bit? Huge set-up with guards everywhere who made sure things didn't go wrong, both upstairs and downstairs (the slides). Bar with chairs in one of the pools. Plenty of places to eat and felt that it was good value for food in relation to the size of the portions. Definitely worth the money. NB On getyourguide it said it was open until 20.00 when we were there, but it closed at 19.00 and some of the things already closed at 18.30. But all in all absolutely worth the 1000 note we paid for 4 pcs. Recommend own transport as this is usually cheaper.

The initially high price deterred us, but on site we quickly realized that it was worth the money. What you have to keep in mind, however, is that you have to pay another 150 baht for a locker. The facility is very modern and offers many cool attractions. In addition, lifeguards are available everywhere.

Had lots of fun. Brand new fun park . Went during the week as recommended by locals as it wasn’t as busy as the weekends . Didn’t wait long to go on the slides. Life guard’s everywhere. Clean and tidy.

It’s was amazing and nice water park cool and so much fun definitely will come back when am in Phuket ❤️

Gorgeous island not crowded. A relaxing day in a tropical paradise. I absolutely recommend it.
