Splash about in Andamanda Phuket Water Park and have a little extra fun with the mascots
What better way to enjoy a splashing day than spending a fun time at the biggest water park in Phuket? The Andamanda Phuket Water Park is one of the island’s newest and largest water parks. Featuring 5 different zones, the water park has an array of slides, thrilling water rides, lazy river pools, and even acrylic pool bars.
Whether you just want to escape the heat and cool off, slip and slide with the kids, or try adrenaline-pumping rides, you are guaranteed to have a fantastic day here. But that’s not all. The Andamanda Phuket Water park boasts a Thai heritage theme, allowing you to immerse yourself in a one-of-a-kind Thai mythology experience. And to make your time here extra fun, each zone of the water park comes with a mascot. Let’s get to know them!
1. The Great Nagon
The gate of the Andamanda Water Park is called The Pearl Palace. Here, you’ll meet The Great Nagon. In the legend, The Great Nagon has been protecting the Great Andaman Bay and the island gem since the beginning of time. He decided to divide his supreme power into five portions. Each portion of his power was engraved into five sacred items scattered all over the island.
After he divided and lost his power, The Great Nagon transformed into a massive rock statue, guarding the village’s gate as a holy landmark. Reuniting the five sacred items would bring back the Great Nagon and his Supreme Power. By exploring the water park, you can help him reunite the five sacred items. You can find The Great Nagon’s massive statue, standing 9 metres tall, at the entrance of the water park. Every hour, The Great Nagon lights up with an impressive effect show for your entertainment.
