Toons, tubes, thrills and spills at Cartoon Network Amazone waterpark

The curved transparent lid lowers around you and all to be heard is the slow trickle of water and your own increased heartbeat. Beyond the perspex, a grinning lifeguard counts down on his fingers…3…2…1 before reaching for a lever. Then suddenly, the world falls away beneath you…

Like a bullet from a gun, you shoot out into the sunlight a few seconds later, after a watery ride so exhilaratingly fast that you’re still holding your breath.  Congratulations! You’ve survived the Goop Loop, the fastest waterslide at Amazone, the world’s first Cartoon Network themed waterpark, 20 minutes from downtown Pattaya.
