Cartoon Network Amazone Waterpark (Thai: สวนน้ำการ์ตูนเน็ทเวิร์ค อเมโซน) was a Cartoon Network themed waterpark located at 888 Moo 8, Na Jomtien, Sattahip, Chonburi, Thailand, 15 kilometers away from South Pattaya. The park recreated an atmosphere of the Amazon rainforest with attractions and activities such as water slides, themed dining options, an artificial sea, rafting, flowriding and live shows, all featuring Cartoon Network characters like: Ben 10 and his aliens, Adventure Time's Finn and Jake, The Powerpuff Girls, and Johnny Bravo.[2]

The park halted operations on 24 March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic in Thailand, and announced in 2021 that it would cease operating as the Cartoon Network Amazone. It has since been rebranded as the Columbia Pictures Aquaverse, themed to Sony Pictures properties.[3]

History

Cartoon Network Amazone Waterpark was operated by Amazon Falls Company Limited. The waterpark's construction began in 2012 by the main road in Na Jomtien close to Bang Saray beach.[4] The waterpark's opening date was scheduled in the Fourth quarter of 2013, but was postponed due to delayed construction. In August 2014 the park was opened only for annual pass members and invited guests. On Friday, October 3, 2014, Cartoon Network Amazone opened to the public.[5]
