If you ask where the aqua-park in Phuket is, you will know that Splash Jungle is a part of the Grand West Sands Resort & Villas Phuket hotel complex, which is located near the airport. It was originally planned that the Park would be available only for hotel guests. Employees of Canadian enterprise White Water Industries were invited for designing and building this water complex.
They were real professionals, known for their projects, such as Sea Word and Disneyland in the United States. As a result, there was built a huge park with an area over 22.000 sq. m and ability to accommodate up 2.000 visitors. The cost plan was also exceeded because it required 0.5 billion of Thai baht. For these reasons, the management decided to open the Park for public access. So now lovers of water-activities in Thailand have a place to have fun. The adult ticket to the aqua-park costs about 1295 baht and child ticket– 895 baht.
Water Jungle is separated from the hotel by the river, which surrounds the entire area. It is very comfortable to float down the river exploring all the areas so that to choose the most exciting.
The aqua-park is divided into 7 theme zones: Latin and North America, Asia, Africa, Antarctica, Turkey and Europe. Here you will see a large variety of slides with different levels of extreme, several pools with various whirlpools and waves.
The most extreme slides are Boomerango and Superbowl. The first one is a structure of pipe with a huge bowl and another pipe, which goes down into the pool. Descend is allowed only with a lifeline. The second attraction stands out among other water-slides and reminds a ramp for skateboarding. During the descent in Superbowl you will get a fair shake.
Play area for children with animators, children's slides, a shallow pool, a barrel with warm water and even an aquarium with sea fishes can please any young guest. There is a high level of security on the playground, lifeguards are on duty and children are required to wear inflatable vests.
