They feature themed-rides, great entertainment and plenty of water features to splash around in. Here are some of the amusement parks across Asia you should visit for a great day out.
Nickelodeon Lost Lagoon, Malaysia
I’m sure you’ve already heard of Disneyland. But did you know there’s also a theme park with your favourite Nickelodeon characters?
The Nickelodeon Water Theme Park & Hotel in Malaysia is described as Asia’s first Nickelodeon themed land. It’s located amidst 10 acres of tropical rainforest. This makes visitors feel like they’re exploring a lost, Nickelodeon-themed jungle. It has lots of fun rides for people of all ages to enjoy. The water play area is the main attraction, with plenty of slides, pools and rides to immerse yourself in.
It has attractions based on Spongebob Squarepants, Dora the Explorer and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. There are also plenty of gift shops and refreshments available around the park.
Malaysia is one of the most fantastic spots for tourists in Asia. It offers some of the best in Asian cuisine and consistently nice weather. This theme park is also located within a resort, making it a prime holiday location.
Universal Studios, Singapore
Another theme park with attractions based around different characters. Universal Studios Singapore features characters from some of the most popular Universal films. You can see attractions influenced by films such as Shrek, Jurassic Park and Transformers.
It also has zones dedicated to locations around the world. You can feel like you’re wandering around Hollywood, or go back in time to Ancient Egypt. There’s even a Madagascar zone, based on the popular film and its characters.
As well as many film-based rides, it also features live-action entertainment and 4-D film experiences. While Singapore is known as the world’s most expensive city, it is very tourist friendly. A lot of tourist accommodation can be found for cheap, and food and daily transport is also inexpensive.
Vinpearl Land, Vietnam
The Vinpearl Land Amusement Park has often been described as Vietnam’s answer to Disneyland. It’s located on a resort island off the coast of Nha Trang. Getting there is a unique experience, as you get there via a 3,320-meter cable car ride across the ocean. The cable car set a Guinness World Record for the longest oversea cable car ride.
Once you’re in the park, you can see huge roller coasters and check out the 50,000 square meter waterpark. There is also a special Vinpearl Under Water World where you can see hundreds of species of rare sea creatures
Vietnam is amongst the world’s fastest growing tourist locations, and visiting Vinpearl Land is a great way to enjoy it.
