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.
