Themed waterpark Cartoon Network Amazone has been awarded the Leading Edge Award 2014 at the world Waterpark Association’s Trade Show Awards.

The win at the event held in Las Vegas comes just one month after the park first opened its gates.

Cartoon Network Amazone has also been praised by Thailand’s tourism minister, saying that the park is perfectly aligned with the country’s tourism strategy for 2015.

Opened on October 3rd, the waterpark is the first ever Cartoon Network-themed waterpark, located in Bang Saray in Thailand.

The accolade was awarded to the park for its many innovative design styles and themes, including the interactive nature of rides as well as attractions not seen before in the waterpark industry.

Mrs Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul, minister of tourism and sports, notes that the new park is a stepping to rebuilding the country’s reputation as a destination for tourism, following its recent issues.

“This is a great opportunity to regain trust for the tourism industry in Thailand,” she said.

“It also coincides with the strategic plan to promote Thai tourism in 2015, which will emphasise transparency, spreading revenue, lessening social inequalities and inspiring love for their homeland among younger generations.

“These strategies are designed to build a new image for Thailand to help it become a high quality tourist destination. Thanks you Cartoon Network Amazone and associates for believing in the Kingdom and choosing to invest in the first themed waterpark in Thailand.”

Ricky Ow, president of Turner Asia Pacific, added: “Turner Broadcasting is very proud that the world’s first Cartoon Network-themed waterpark has opened in Thailand and is already winning prestigious awards.

“My congratulations go to the Amazone Falls management team and everyone at Turner who has made this unique project come to life.”
