Ho Thuy Tien – The Abandoned Waterpark in Vietnam
Thuy Tien Lake is a water park that opened in 2004 and closed (abandoned) two years later. The park looks like a horror film set, it’s creepy and so fascinating. The main attraction is the Aquarium, which is guarded by a huge dragon – Now covered in rust, peeling paint, graffiti, and broken glass. The water slides are fascinating as well, covered in leaves, rust, and trees growing through them… There is also a water show area with stadium seating, and a flight simulator area. An amazing sight and a must see when in Hue.

Left abandoned for more than ten years, Ho Thuy Tien waterpark right now is a complete ruin nearly 50 hectares in area. Many game zones that were once guarded by staff now have a scarily isolated view because no employees whatsoever have worked here for a long time. The entrance paths have all been covered by grass, adding to the dreary scene. Big yards in front of many entertainment areas now are vast grass hills and also a fertile feast for cattle raised by residents in the neighborhood. Many large villas originally built to serve guests with comfortable stays are completely abandoned, some were not even finished. It feels as if you walked straight into a horror movie.
