Guide to Thailand's Best Theme Parks

13 Apr 2022

Thailand is a popular vacation destination in Asia. It has a multicultural society with significant historical background and culture. So naturally, tourists come here to submerge in all that goodness and relax on the beach of one of the country's tropical paradise islands. But have you considered going to a theme park in Thailand?

Granted, it's not the first thing that comes to mind when we think about Thailand. However, the country features some of the biggest theme parks in Asia! These attractions are an excellent option for a family day away from the temples and beaches.

You can spend the day screaming with joy as you are spun around a rollercoaster, your feet dangling in the air! Or, you can enjoy the various other family entertainment opportunities and activities, like water attractions, playgrounds, gardens, and fairground rides.

We compiled the most incredible theme parks in Thailand here for your convenience and enjoyment. Whichever you pick, you and your family and friends will have a blast!

 

Dream World aka Disneyland Bangkok

Where: Pathum Thani, Bangkok

Disneyland Bangkok is a blend of Tokyo Disneyland and Disneyland Resort. The castle is reminiscent of a Thai temple and Sleeping Beauty Castle. It opened on July 17, 1985. It is one of four Asian Disney theme parks. It features:

  • The main street (USA-styled street), Bangkok Main Street, and an Epcot Entrance
  • A golden castle surrounded by a giant water moat
  • Disney character topiaries are all around as they are in WDW's Epcot
  • In Princess Land, all the princess castles are life-sized.
  • Adventureland is located in the eastern zone of the park and has some attractions from Disney's Animal Kingdom
  • A zone similar to Tomorrowland with some attractions from WDW's Epcot, called Discovery Space, is located in the west beside Westside Country (identical to Frontierland and Storybookland, a huge Fantasyland with zones)
  • Unlike other parks, there is no carrousel in Fantasyland but in Thai Paradise City, and there is no spinning teacup ride since there is a giant Wonderland there
  • There is a Duckland called Scrooge McDuck's city
  • There is a Toontown called Mickey's Toontown (this zone is similar to its Californian Mickey's Toontown mixed with WDW Mickey's Toontown Fair)

Dream World is one of Thailand's top theme parks, delivering a fun-filled and engaging day for youngsters. They can:

  • Spend all day riding the waves
  • Meet your favorite cartoon characters like Cinderella and Pocahontas
  • Tour miniature wonders of the world
  • Enjoy snowy winter moments sleighing or making snow angels in Snow Town
  • Ride a rollercoaster up Space Mountain,
  • Take pictures at attractive photo sites like a half-buried fallen colossus and the famous love garden for couples

People of all ages can enjoy the "World of Happiness" and the 40-plus thrilling or relaxing rides it contains. For example, Space Mountain takes you on a wild ride into outer space, and Hurricane allows you to fly and spin into the sky! Then there's also the awesome Viking Ship and Giant House, or the nature-themed Dream Garden with a lake and water tricycles for a more relaxing experience. To top it off (pun intended), this theme park also has a Snow Town that overlooks all the Dream World rides. We recommend you bring a jacket though because it's as cold as the name suggests. Lastly, you can finish your action-packed day with a live show or a 4D experience and eat at one of the countless buffets or fast-food joints. And if you visit the park garden on the weekend, you can observe the Colors of the World procession (parade).

Dream World is an ample space where you can relax and have fun simultaneously. Here your wildest dreams can come true. This all-time favorite destination is only an hour and a half out of Bangkok.
