Dream World – Bangkok

A few days after arriving back in Thailand, Rotchana and I took her son and niece to an amusement park in Bangkok for the day. The park is named “Dream World” and has several rides and attractions. It’s not Disneyland, but there is quite a bit to see and do.

We spent most of the day wandering around the park taking photos. We went on a few rides, but we were disappointed to find out that the one big roller coaster was closed for maintenance.

There is an attraction called “Snow Town” that is located in a big warehouse type of structure in the middle of the park. When you go inside you’re provided with a large parka and rubber boots. Once you’ve put on your cold weather gear you enter a large room that is filled with snow. It’s fun watching many of the Thai visitors deal with the colder temperatures. For many of them I’m sure this is the closest they’ll ever get to the real thing.

Just before you leave outside the other side of “Snow Town” there is a large hill for anyone that wants to try tubing. The hill was only about 200 feet long and about 30 feet high, but it scared the heck out of a lot of people as they came down for the first time.

After getting back out into the 80+ degree weather we spent some time playing some of the carnival games. Like most of these types of games the odds are heavily in favor of the park, but we still managed to win a few small prizes.

We waited around for the parade that takes place in the afternoon before calling it a day. We’d pretty much covered the entire park a few times so there wasn’t much left to do. The kids had fun and we did, too.

    I find it amusing that most of the signs that are visible in your pictures are all written in English. Sounds like you guys had a great time! Take care.

    There is a lot of that in and around Bangkok, but what’s funny is that a lot of the signs are written in broken English. Some of them don’t make any sense at all. Based on the results I’ve received using Google’s translator I would guess that is how some of those signs come to be. I’ll have to remember to start taking photos of some of these signs and do an entry just on those.
