Weekend Fun at Dreamworld Bangkok

Happy riders at Dreamworld Bangkok

I had a funny thought while taking this photo. I mused, “what if someone suddenly puked while this ride is vertical?” Oh I can imagine regurgitated bits of hotdogs, rice and gastric juices raining down on me. I am more disturbed by this thought than the swinging of the pretend ship.

My companion seated to my left didn't share my thoughts. He was clinging to the chair, surely afraid for his life.

We are at Dreamworld Bangkok and this is our first ride, which is called the “Vikings”.

More like a pirate ship than a Viking ship, right?
Going to an amusement park is not on my list of “places to visit” in Thailand. This opportunity came when a friend asked me if I wanted to visit Dreamworld Bangkok. There is a catch, however, because I have to act as a guardian to a kid. That Dreamworld trip was a field trip for the children being cared for by a foundation and they are looking for volunteer guardians.

Most of the kids came from poor families. Some of them don't have families at all and live in an orphanage. The trip to Dreamworld is their opportunity to have fun and forget their problems for at least one day.

I can feel the excitement of the little kids the moment they went down from their van. We didn't enter Dreamworld yet but they are having fun posing with these aliens:

And the pink train:

The kids oohed and aahed when we entered the park. My ward (who I will call Pod in this post) particularly enjoyed this buried giant.

I asked Pod if he is a brave man and he answered “yes” after speaking a lot of Thai words that I can't comprehend. We went to one scary ride to prove his bravery and that is the reason why we ended up in the swinging ship of the Vikings.

His bravery ended the moment we left the Viking ship. He didn't want to ride other scary rides. The next ride that he chose is the Thunderbird.

We imagined that we were driving a spaceship and shooting enemy ships. Kapow! Boom! Bang! - I really felt like a little child during that day.

I let Pod lead me to any rides that he wanted to try. It was his day after all. Too bad that he is too scared to try the more scary rides. I couldn't convince him to try Sky Coaster. Oh, I wanted to fly!

What Pod really wanted to try is the ride that will make us wet. He kept on asking me to go to the Super Splash and to this place:

I had no extra shirt or pants but I still obliged. Kawawa naman yung bata eh.

Grand Canyon is like the Rio Montañosa of Splash Island. However, Dreamworld's Grand Canyon is much tamer and has less twists than the Splash Island slide. I still got wet despite of this. The little rascal, on the other hand, enjoyed it.

Our stomachs are rumbling after that ride so we searched for the other guardians to eat our lunch. I was glad that they provided free lunch.

The first half of my day at Dreamworld Bangkok had been enjoyable. Pod enjoyed the rides too. The good thing is that we are on the “same wavelength”. I have no problem roughhousing with kids so I can play “muay thai” and horseback riding (wherein I am the horse) with my ward.

The first half of our day is just the beginning of fun. On the next post, I will talk about our visit to a big refrigerator and the terrible terrible accident.

  5. Ah, this post, because of the Viking, reminded me of my first visit to Enchanted Kingdom. It has a similar one which is called Anchor's Away. I tried it. Because I thought it was an easy ride lol. After the ride, I promised myself to just be content with a bump car hehehe.

    Nice naman at nag-enjoy ka sa Dreamland. And I'm sure it was more fulfilling because you had to babysit an orphan.
