Temporary fun park to open at Sothearos construction site

Lucky Fun Park, located on Sothearos Boulevard, will hold its grand opening this Friday.

The theme park, operated by Neti Nam Lue, the owner of Lucky Casino – based in Poipet – has been set up on a 1.5-hectare piece of land, Lucky guest service manager Chatree Namwat told Post Property this week.

The temporary theme park will only be operational for a 6-month stint, until May 2017.

The set up includes an outdoor playground, up to five giant bouncing castles, around two big swimming pools and medium inflatable pools for children.

Guests will also be able to enjoy boxing matches for the launch this weekend.

Nuttawoot Sungsamoot, secretary of Lucky Casino, added that guests need to purchase a ticket to enter the park, while it would cost at least $5 to swim in the pool, excluding prices for other activities and rides within the fun park. However, he assured more information on ticket pricing would be released soon.
