Good news for theme park fanatics!
Sony Pictures Entertainment announced today (Apr 7) that they are teaming up with attractions developer Amazon Falls to create Aquaverse, the world’s first Columbia Pictures theme park and waterpark in the seaside town of Bangsaray, about 20 minutes from Pattaya and 90 minutes from Bangkok.
The rides and attractions at the 14-acre park are inspired by the studio’s legendary franchises, from Ghostbusters to Jumanji to Bad Boys. The park is expected to open in phases in October 2021.
