Turner Broadcasting System Asia Pacific has unveiled plans for a Cartoon Network-themed waterpark in Thailand.

Set to open in 2013, Cartoon Network Amazone will mix the firm's properties - including Ben 10, The Powerpuff Girls, Johnny Bravo and The Amazing World of Gumball - with a nod to the Amazon Rainforest.

The park will feature signature attractions including a family wave pool, a winding adventure river, speed racing slides, family raft rides and one of the world's largest interactive water play fortresses for kids.

It is being developed in conjunction with Amazon Falls Co, with phase one already underway. When completed it will cover 14 acres of coastal plains in Bang Saray, near Pattaya. The park will attract up to 800,000 visitors a year once fully operational.

"Cartoon Network is all about the fun and energy of the playground, and the addition of Cartoon Network Amazone means that families can literally step into our vibrant world of animation and vacation with their favourite characters like never before," said Sunny Saha, SVP and MD of Turner Broadcasting System Asia Pacific. "We are very proud to have Thailand as the spectacular backdrop for the world's first Cartoon Network-themed waterpark."
