Pattaya Park Tower - lookout and my NOT epic descent

Hotel Pattaya Park Beach Resort in the areaPratumnak is famous for its tower, which is visible from almost anywhere in the city. Its height is 240 meters, and at the top there is a restaurant with a circular view of the city and the Tower Jump attraction. That is, a jump from the tower. Of course, this is not literally a jump, but a descent down the cable, trolls. But still, you can get a portion of extreme sports.

Lookout on the tower of Pattaya Park

Hotel Pattaya Park Beach Resort probably already 20 years old. Therefore, the whole large territory with rides and a water park, buildings and a tower look frayed and rather old school. What can attract in the tower are the top and bottom views in one of three ways: Sky Shuttle (in the cabin), Speed ​​Shuttle (two-person cradle), or just slide down suspended to the cable. The latter is usually called trolls or zip-line.

So, buy a ticket, go up the elevator. The windows in the café are stained, but if you lean the lens as close as possible to the glass and look for cleaner places, you can take more or less normal photos. Overview of the cafe opens 360 degrees and that's a plus.

There are tables, you can sit and drinksomething cool, chat, looking at Pattaya from above. The cafe has a beer, ice cream, cakes. The situation, as they say in the reviews, is a little shovel, it is so. But this is not a restaurant at all. By the way, there is a restaurant on the 52nd floor, but I think there is not much better, considering the design of the hotel and the tower.

Observation platform, where you arrive at the elevator,located on the 55th floor. Then you need to climb the legs to another floor, on the roof, where you can go down in one of the ways, to choose from. Total, we have a maximum height of 56 floors. During my visit, there were a lot of noisy Chinese, who rushed to the window with shouts when someone was sent down.

By the way, photos from the roof can be made without an obstacle in the form of glass. Life hacking you like that.

Descent from the tower and video

Honestly, while I stood there on the roof,blown by the winds of all the seas, it was scary. Moreover, he was afraid not so much of heights as of the fact that something from the Thais would fall off somewhere. Well, you remember that for 20 years already here it all stands and looks appropriate. In any case, the option of an elevator down was not considered at all, so without thinking twice, I got up on the landing and drove down. The feeling of fear passed somewhere in a second, when I realized that there would be no great speed in principle, and the cable did not seem to be about to break either.

But from the middle of the road, and even earlier, it begandisappointment. Adrenaline, even at low dosage, never entered the bloodstream. I almost fell asleep. My expectations were too high, then that the trolls went under a strong slope to the bottom. It even became funny that he was afraid before descending. So I can say that this entertainment is extreme only for those who are afraid of heights. Well, or very far from anything really extreme.
