I'm not sure why I waited so long to give the West Lake Water Park a shot. I love this kind of goofy crap back home. Maybe I was just afraid it would be a big letdown. Anyway, we finally went last weekend after a day of beerfishing, and it capped off our Saturday debauchery quite nicely.

From the looks of it, both the water park and the amusement park are getting reviewed here, but they seem to be separate entities. You can buy a ticket for one or the other, and our ticket for the water park came to a staggering 30k dong. HA!!! You can't even buy a freakin' COKE at a water park back home for that.

The water park has most of the standard attractions: a wave pool, a kiddie pool with toys, several giant twisting slides, a couple slides that send you screaming straight downward, ending with a chlorine colonic if you're not careful, and the easy going "lazy river" where you can float around watching Vietnamese kids make out. They also have a decent high dive that makes for great entertainment, but it's really slippery up there. Watch out!

They don't have much for concessions, but most items are cheap. Cheap beer, chips, and sausage on a stick should get you through the day just fine.

Taking off two stars for the lack of food selection, condition (and stench) of shower facilities, and the fact that 1/3 water slides were not functioning. But it's definitely worth 30k dong!

Oh this is a delight, the waterpark bit, at least thats only part I have spent time in, 70k for a day out, amazing way to escape the heat, great awful food, 10k Halidas, nice slides and, a fake river, with waterfalls to tube down also a great wave pool, a bit over crowded on sundays, but very peaceful on weekdays, though sundays are still fun, one of the best days out in town

If you are looking for something a little different this is a great venue for a night / day with friends (or kids) - great value for money too.
There are dodgems, a roller coaster, galleon swing, simulator, an octopus, a train that goes around the whole area and a few other rides, some for the very young plus a softplay area, not forgetting the ferris wheel which gives an amazing view of the city if you have the stomach for heights - it goes very slowly so you can view at your leisure.
There are places to buy drinks and limited snacks - reasonably priced - and quite a few restaurants very near by for afterwards.
Entrance fees are based on height - the big people pay 80 000, the middle people pay 50 000 and the small 30 000 - the rides are also height restricted. Wth these tickets you get a wristband which allows you to use the rides as many times as you like - there is no time limit stay all day if you want.
If you don't want to ride on anything entrance to the park is 3000 and it is possible to buy individual tickets from the booth inside for each ride - this is an expensive way of doing it if you intend to ride on a few things.
Though the whole place is sort of stuck in a time warp, the park grounds are a bit neglected in places and the equipment appears archaic, I have, however, come to the conclusion that it must be looked after very well as it is still going!
I have been several times and thoroughly enjoyed each occassion.
It closes at 10pm in summer and I think it opens at 10am though I'm not sure.
The deal for the waterpark and amusement park combined is also worth considering - high energy levels are required but you can save up to 40 000 per head.
