Phuket Water Park on Mai Khao Beach
Splash Jungle Water Park is a popular theme park on Mai Khao Beach, just next to Phuket International Airport. It’s not huge and a bit pricey, but it’s a great way to spend the day with the kids and the family having fun, eating or even drinking in the water of the pool bar.
Splash Jungle includes five main attractions. To start, drift gently in a tube in the 335 metres long stream of the ‘Lazy River’ circulating the entire water park, easy and fun to hang and splash with friends before the ‘big one’ called ‘Boomerango’.
Once ready, pick a tube and climb at the top of the main tower and select one of the five giant sliders. The vertical wall of Boomerango is the scariest but probably the most popular, while the spinning funnel of the ‘Super Bowl’ is fun for making you from ‘slightly disorientated’ to ‘dizzy’. Two sliders are open-air, and one is a long and dark pipe, not recommended to people subject to claustrophobia.
Once you’ve got your adrenaline shot, go play in the artificial wave pool. Don’t worry, waves are not very big, and it is an excellent place to relax in the swell. Try also the ‘Hot Spring’, a pool at 35˚C set in a North Pole atmosphere.
Kids have their pool called ‘Aqua Play’ with plenty of small sliders, waterfalls and water games. Every once in a while, a monster water bucket located at the very top of the kid’s playground will empty its content in a huge splash.
Done with it or need a break? Have lunch at one of the two restaurants, nothing fancy but this kind of snack lunch goes well with the summer atmosphere of the Park. Make sure you have a drink at the pool bar as the weather gets rather hot and sitting in the pool with a cocktail, or a chilled glass is excellent for your tan!
