Visited with 2 boys (10&8). Great fun for kids and adults for a few hours. Entrance fee of thb500 per person allows you to leave and return throughout the day. Kids under 12 have to wear lifevests.
Facilities and equipment are all well maintained.
Seth and the other 3 staff members (apologies that I did not get their names) make you feel welcomed and you get a little introduction about the course.
Can definitely recommend this

The lifeguard that goes over the rules was pretty unprofessional. He assumed since I was American I couldn't speak Thai, so as my girlfriend and I are standing there waiting for more people to join he starts talking to her and telling her how beautiful she is and trying to flirt.

I left a review here saying this before, and the reply I got was "It's a shame you didn't speak up and join in on the funny-cheeky banter" Uhh, I did speak up actually. And there was nothing fun or cheeky about it. When I saw how uncomfortable my girlfriend was getting I said "Yes she is beautiful isn't she" and the lifeguard just looked at me like a deer in headlights and let out a nervous laugh. Then turned away from me and called another group over so he could start going over the rules of the challenge. Didn't even acknowledge me, didn't say a single word directly to me the entire time. But in your words it's "fun and playful banter" to make a customer uncomfortable, and do disrespect another one by hitting on their spouse right in front of them.

Would never come back here.

Matthew, Again I am sorry you have chosen to leave this negative review without talking to us directly 1st. It is impossible for me to be everywhere at once and hear everything 1st hand. I can ensure you we have talked about this many times now. I hold my hands up for trying to make the situation light hearted as possible. I never try to take life too seriously, it'll only make you bitter and twisted. That's just me, I apologise for that. From the start I was very surprised to read your bad review amongst so many great reviews especially about the team. We are truly sorry you had a bad day here with us. I would ask you and anyone with a grip about any business to speak to the management in the future so any future issues can be avoided. No business operator likes to first hear about instances on Trip Advisor or any other public platform. All the best from all the team here at The Challenge Phangan.

Important to say that this place is a NEW place, the old one near the lake was closed and moved close to the beach.
We took the 500 baht for a day pass where you can do all obstacles again and again..
The staff is so friendly with good vibes as they show you how to clear the challenge and in some of the obstacles they even fall too!
The place is still under construction and unfortunately they don’t have a restaurant or a resting spot yet.
You can rent a locker for additional 50 baht and put the key at the reception so you can have a quiet head while attempting the challenge.
The obstacles are diverse and very challenging and the park is not crowded at all.
Good for everyone - males, females, kids, teenagers and adults.

We had such fun here. Staff are fun and professional. The course is hilarious and a challenge too. 500 Baht for the whole day is a bargain. Thanks for a fun day!

I had seen a video of The Challenge on Facebook before I visited Thailand so I knew it was something I wanted to do. I didn't actually stay overnight on Koh Phangan but I got a boat taxi over to Haad Rin pier and then a taxi which lasted 30-45 mins.
It cost 500 baht each for the whole day although we spent 2-3 hours here. The course is challenging (no pun intended) so you may find that 2-3 hours is enough but it depends if you are happy to sit and watch others, have a drink and some food. Unfortunately we did not have any food so I cannot comment on that.
The process was very well managed, with English instructors who carefully explained the rules and safety procedures. Life jackets were not necessary unless you took the swing into the water but they were available for those who are not extremely confident in the water.
I thoroughly enjoyed the activity, something different from normal and definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.
The locker and toilet facilities here are average.

Great place with a excellent course and rope swing. Really good laugh to test yourself against a total wipeout course. However this can be a really dangerous place for hurting yourself one guy dislocated his shoulder on the balls and the lifeguards didn’t notice so I had to pull him to the side. No biggie i am a lifeguard anyway and the lifeguards didn’t realise as he wasn’t screaming. If you hurt yourself I’m pretty sure your travel insurance won’t cover this but hey ho only live once right. It’s a must try

Hey Kurtis, Thanks for taking time to leave us a review. It's a shame about your negative comments or side to the review. I was working this day and was involved with helping the injured man. We are a physical obstical course on water and with any physical activity there is always a risk of personal injury especially if people just tear across the course with out taking our advice on how to best manoeuvre obsticals like the big red balls. I saw the injured persons attempt and thought at the time it didn't look quite right but I continued to watch him in the water and as you said it wasn't obvious there was a problem. As soon as it was clear there was a problem three lifeguards were there in the water with your assistance (thank you for that) to bring him back to dry land and give him the medical assistance he needed. It was all very quickly over and dealt with. We are really grateful for you help and that you are clearly saying we are a must try attraction. I just feel it's a shame to come online and talk down anyones business aspecially when these incidents are impossible to completely eliminate when doing a physical activity. We have well trained lifeguards here and the whole situation was resolved very quickly. All the best on your future travel. The Challenge Phangan

I was here from 11am until 4pm because I just wanted to keep going! ‘The blob’ is such a good addition. It’s absolutely so tiring and we are both aching everywhere from our day our yesterday, but it’s so worth it!!

The staff are all so friendly and safety conscious. The inflatables are replaced every year, so everything is in great shape.

We had food too which was a little pricy for small portions but the food we did have was tasty.
