Suón Tiên- A Vietnamese Amusement Park

“Do you want to go to Harry Potter world and go go-karting?”

What an offer. And to think I almost didn’t go. I am so glad I did!!! There is an amusement park about 15-20 minutes from where I live. It’s not one you hear very much about and I only knew about it because I had a friend who went go-karting there. What sounded like a weird invitation ended up being such a fun day!

(As you scroll through these pictures just picture Disney music playing. No joke!)

When exploring a weird amusement park, one must take fun photos!

It ended up being a really dark Harry Potter haunted house.

With all the construction we thought this was a fairly new amusement park. Nope, it’s 23 years old.

Giant Chicken. And yes, that man is riding a motorbike in the park

An actual temple. I’m having serious flashbacks of the opening scenes of Aladdin!

We decided that this was a wishing tree

I’m ready to go go-karting on a not-so-safe, no seat belts, helmet required, really fun track!

Seatbelts…. who needs seatbelts? (Honestly, I’m so used to not wearing a seatbelt at this point that I didn’t even realize there weren’t any until afterwards when a friend pointed it out.:/)

Sure. let’s pour some concrete in the middle of the day on a main walk way. Why not?

We did not realize how amazing this snow castle would be

I wasn’t sure what to expect when they handed me this to wear. And the boots were wet inside, so that was gross.

And then we walked into this. An indoor tubing run! What?!?  Cue excitement!

Things I did not get a picture of;
Alligator park (which left the gate open at one point)
Water park
Four-wheel/dirt bike area
A garden
8,000 VDN (.35 cent) ice cream – we had two
Rides and games that weren’t running. We think they turned them on if you wanted to ride.
Dolphin show- figured this wasn’t going to be ethical so we didn’t go
Giant fruit sculptures

We paid to get into the park and then paid for the things we did. It was all very cheap.

Seriously, one of the most fun days I’ve had in a long time!

BLOGGING IS NOT SOMETHING I’M NECESSARILY GOOD AT AND AUTOCORRECT AND I HAVE A LOVE/HATE RELATIONSHIP, SO PLEASE IGNORE ANY TYPOS, MISSPELLED WORDS, OR ALL TOGETHER WRONG WORDS. 😉
