Cartoon Network Theme Park In Bali By 2020
You’ve probably heard about Cartoon Network Wave, the first Cartoon Network-themed cruise sailing from Singapore in late-2018.
But did you know that there’s a Cartoon Network water park in Pattaya, Thailand?
And if all goes well, there’ll be a humongous Cartoon Network theme park in Bali by 2020 too!
We can practically hear all you Adventure Time and We Bare Bears fans screaming in anticipation for CN’s impending SEA invasion.
Here’s a quick look at what to expect.
1. Cartoon Network water park in Pattaya
The world’s first Cartoon Network water park, Cartoon Network Amazone, boasts 13 different attractions, a humongous merch store and various dining options in Pattaya, Thailand. That’s about a 2-hour drive from Bangkok.
We’d recommend exploring kid-friendly Cartoonival first — with countless slides and stairs themed after nostalgic 90s cartoons like Powerpuff Girls and Dexter’s Laboratory.
The attractions are rated by level of scariness and the Cartoonival is “teeth-clenching”, which is scary enough that friends can’t call you chicken.
If you’re the daredevil type who enjoys feeling your heart drop, you can go for a literal drop on the popular Goop Loop ride.
You’ll have to stand and wait patiently for a few seconds before the trap door you’re standing on falls, plunging you into a 12-metre free fall.
And it won’t just be a straight fall because you’ll be flying through a 360-degree loop like a wet Hot Wheels car.
No wonder this “heart-pumping” ride warns all the scaredy cats to stay away.
Another ride not for the faint-hearted is the XLR8-TOR. Yup, it’s read as “accelerator” like those times people used to spell “gr8” or “see you l8r” when texting. Cringe, but it’s efficient.
Likewise the ride is really quick too. The 18-meter vertical drop is the tallest and steepest water park attraction in Asia.
Forget about breaking the not so high speed limit on Singapore roads. You can go siao fast on the water slides, you’ll find it hard to breathe.
You can buy tickets in special meal-inclusive packages or opt for the single-admission full day pass instead, which is priced as follows:
Adults (aged 13-64): THB 1,290 (S$53.95)
Child (aged 3-12): THB 990 (S$41.40)
Seniors (aged >65): THB 990 (S$41.40)
Address: 888 Moo 8, Sukhunvit Rd., Na Jomtien, Sattahip District, 20250 Chonburi, Thailand
If you’re planning a trip to Thailand over the holidays, definitely don’t miss checking Cartoon Network Amazone out.
2. Fully-fledged Cartoon Network theme park in Bali
Of course one Cartoon Network theme park in Southeast Asia isn’t enough.
That’s why Cartoon Network is giving us another option with the upcoming entertainment park it plans to open in Bali in 2020.
The 43,000 square meter park will have an indoor entertainment centre, live shows as well as water rides that include huge surf and wave pools.
Cartoon Network hasn’t released more details of the park, but we can imagine the cool attractions that might be there.
See the winding green slide to the left? Maybe the multi-level, interweaving layers mean it’s a supersized version of the Omnitrix at Cartoon Network Amazone.
Elevated slides = more speed = more fun. Since you’ll be throttling down like a car on nitro speed, you’ll have loads of time to go on all the rides over and over.
Look at the way the slides criss-cross over each other. We’re betting that it’ll take no less than three goes spinning down these slides before you start to Merlion.
And that’s only one side of the enormous park. If our guess is true, the entertainment park in Bali could rival or even beat the water park in Thailand.
We’ll keep our eyes peeled for more deets closer to the release date.
3. World’s first Cartoon Network cruise sails from Singapore
The Cartoon Network Wave’s not only the world’s first cruise liner to have Jake plastered all over its massive form, it also has 11 guest decks & 800-themed cabins and suites to cater to over 2,000 guests.
It also houses the world’s first triplex or three-storey suites perfect for large families. That’s literally like having your very own multilevel luxurious home on the high seas.

If this is what a suite on the ship looks like, can we apply for permanent residency there?

There are only two triplex suites on board, with other types of suites available in different sizes. Prices start at S$200/night.
Restaurants, cafes, bars and shops will give you the full holiday experience aboard a ship that appeals to passengers of all ages, so it’s not just for kids.
But why go on a Cartoon Network cruise if you’re not gonna immerse yourself in the cartoon world, right? Guests can take a go at the Adventure Time-themed rope park and obstacle course.
Lady Rainicorn would definitely approve of that slide.
Cartoon Network hasn’t disclosed specific details of other attractions, but expect to see scenes from familiar cartoons everywhere you look.
Step into Johnny Bravo’s world in this alfresco burger bar. Johnny Bravo’s hao lian character might not be very pleasant, but let’s hope the food makes up for it.
Not a fan of Johnny Bravo? It’s okay because on such a huge cruise ship, there are sure to be tons of other characters. Confirm plus chop.
We won’t be surprised if you run into Powerpuff Girls, Adventure Time or even We Bare Bears characters on one of your casual strolls about the decks.
We still don’t know when exactly the cruise will set sail or how you can get tickets, but for more information, visit the website here.
Adventure of a lifetime
The end-of-year holidays are approaching fast and most of us are probably scratching our heads over what we can do.
Family-friendly holidays like these Cartoon Network-themed attractions will definitely be the best way to please everyone in the fam — from grandma to your little cousins.
So if you haven’t gotten your holiday plans sorted out yet, we’d suggest that you check out Cartoon Network’s offerings and plan a holiday that your whole family will remember.
After all, you won’t just be enjoying Adventure Time for real, you’ll be embarking on an adventure of a lifetime with your loved ones.
