Thailand’s latest waterpark opened its gates on 1 December. Located in the evolving tourist destination of Hua Hin, the 7.1 acre Vana Nava Water Jungle is surrounded by a lush landscape, including a variety of exotic plants and tropical trees.
Kitted out by WhiteWater, it incorporates elements including a 30m high waterfall, the first AquaCourse outside North America (pictured above), a lazy river through the jungle, and a surf bar featuring a double FlowRider. It’s also home to some of Thailand’s largest waterslides including the country’s first Abyss funnel slide (pictured below), a Master Blaster water coaster, AquaLoop and many more – 800 metres of slides in total.
Vana Nava has further reaching objectives than purely soaking guests. The park will create many career opportunities and offer spaces for local artisans to showcase their work, contributing to the vitality of the community.
