Suoi Tien
Attractiepark

"We took our children along with a large group of friends. What an experience. We expected a water park & got so much more. There are rides, slides, fish feet massages, paddle boats & on & on it goes. The water park with wave pool was great, although we will say safety isn't what we are use to. Pool areas are slippery seems to be the norm in Vietnam & wave pool is VERY choppy. All in all it was a great time. Wish we had had more time as when we found the rest of the park. It was empty & we could have ridden rides freely. We had no time anymore."


Suoi Tien Waterpark

          Attraction Park Suoi Tien - in Ho Chi Minh City opened in 1995. The park is located on Line 1 of the metro in Ho Chi Minh City, east of Saigon River (in Quan 9). A taxi ride takes from downtown Ho Chi Minh City about 20 minutes.
The attraction park focuses on Vietnamese history, folklore, and of course on the Buddha himself. Among the parks many features are an oversized golden dragon whose mouth contains a neon haloed shrine to Buddha, avenues lined with pillars in the shape of giant elephant tusks, a swimming pool surrounded by a massive concrete facade of dragons and a giant rotating frog sculpture at the entrance.
Particularly delightful are the twelve story face’s of the Buddhist sages - with water slides emerging from their beards.
There is an artificial sea-water pool in the park for the salt water swimmers. There is also a section with dinosaurs.

 


Among the many attractions there is a large golden dragon and walks with pillars like giant elephant tusks, a swimming pool surrounded by a massive concrete facade of dragons and a giant rotating carved frog at the entrance. Especially the pools with slides are top attractions. There include a Ferris wheel, a giant pendulum (which rotates and swings) and a roller coaster.


The Roller Coaster
 

Children can enjoy a boat trip vane, the boat is in the form of a dog, swan or a turtle. But beware of the "Palace of the Unicorns" It all sounds so magical and colourful. Wrong! As soon as I am through the entrance, it’s pitch black. I have to hold onto a handrail as I go down a set of stairs and descend underground. You might think I was being melodramatic if I said that it felt like I was descending into hell – but that’s the point. Underneath the temple is a journey through the various levels of Buddhist Hell.
Perhaps the strangest and most unnerving attraction of the park is huge "Crocdile Kingdom".
A pond with over 1,500 live crocodiles, visitors are invited to feed them with raw meat attached to fishing poles

 

You do not just look at feeding the crocodile, but, um .... you can also buy a baby alligator and start a crocodile farm at home (!). The area is quite huge and you can really see a number of crocodiles all around the area.


Feeding Crocodiles

It's all very impressive and implemented on a large surface. Although the park is child friendly, they could pay more attention to security, such as smoothness in the pools. You are clearly not in Disneyland.
One of the latest attraction is "paintball". You have to pay paintballing for one hour, complete with equipment, weapons and paint. If you're afraid of paintball to be dirty, there is a "laser gun" area.
Most of the attractions are aimed at children - are mostly small rides - with the exception of a very large Ferris wheel, Pendulum and a roller coaster. But even these larger rides are not particularly fast or scary.


Giant Pendulum

Periodically a dolphin show and a sea lion show is held. These animals exhibit tricks in the water. The show is surprisingly good and the animals seem well kept. They jump through hoops and throwing balls with their tails in the audience.

If you visited the Vinperl Park in Nha Trang, you know you have purchased an all-inclusive ticket at the entrance. That is not here. If you would like to go swimming, you pay a (low) entrance fee. This is also the same with the other attraction. However ..... all in all it is not as expensive as the Vinpearl Amusement Park in Nha Trang
