Dream World Bangkok – A visit to Dream World theme park is a fun-filled, entertaining day out where, as the name suggests, children’s fantasies become realities: they can sleigh or make snow angels in Snow Land, ride a rollercoaster up Space Mountain, and meet Cinderella and Pocahontas all in one day. While Dream World’s high-octane rides might not measure up to the best of American or Japanese theme parks’, the sights and attractions for smaller children are excellent and ensure an exciting family day out and a lot of memorable photographs. Although it’s not actually located in Bangkok, Dream World is only a short ride up the motorway, past Don Muang, the old international airport. Tickets cost 650baht for entrance and unlimited rides, although this excludes Snow Town which costs 150baht extra. If you book a day tour everything is included.
The entrance to the park sets the scene for the fantastical experience to come: friendly, green aliens laughing beneath medieval castle walls. It makes no sense but children love it! If you have ever visited a Western theme park you will recognise many of the same features: cheerful music piped throughout the park, swathes of manicured gardens, flowers and water features, and a plenty of maps dotted here and there to help you navigate your way around. The park is split into four sections but just strolling around will take you through every section. The more hair-raising rides include old favourites like Space Mountain, a roller coaster which zips along through the pitch darkness, and the Viking ship. However, the top rides in the park are undoubtedly the iconic Sky Coaster, a fairly modern roller coaster that twists and rolls as passenger’s feet dangle freely from their securely harnessed seat, and Super Splash, which is sure to give riders a refreshing shower whether they want it or not. Beyond these, the options available to teenagers are fairly limited but still ensure screams and howls keep ringing throughout the park.
