“"Don't get your hopes up, kids!"”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

The title for this review was written by my 8 year old daughter who was very disappointed with our trip to the water park. The height restriction for the rides (1.4 metres or 4'6") meant that she could only go on two of them. Given that at water parks in Indonesia, Canada, Singapore and the U.S. she has been able to ride nearly all of the rides, she was very upset to be limited to 2 only rides at this park (one of which was "lame"). It would have been helpful at the entrance to have been given information on which rides she would and wouldn't have been able to go on. We ended up walking around the park for about an hour, we rode 2 rides (once each) and went home with a distraught kid. Clearly the rides are for teens and adults based on the height restrictions.
Money NOT well spent (110,000 per adult and 70,000 for her). From my perspective, the park was pretty run down, dirty and smelled of sewage. I'm not sure this place warrants a 4* rating.

“entertainment for kids”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

that is a good place for kids to entertain. lots of families bring their kids here. they have good facilities and professional system with ticketing selling, controlling risk and more than that a big space.

“For locals only”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

Don't bother trekking all the way out to D11 to see this underwhelming place. If you have been to a water park in any other country Dam Sen will leave you quite disappointed. Stick to hotel swimming pools.

“Almost a sleeping theme park”
Reviewed December 24, 2012 via mobile

80% of the rides were not operating. we went there on a Friday and was later told the theme.park is more active on weekends. Paid VND 180k adult and VND 120k for the entrance tickets but exclude tickets for certain rides (we expect it to be all rides inclusive since we bought the most expensive tickets!) And also exclude the water park entrance fees at 100k adult and 60k child i think...
My daughter enjoyed the water park though it was flooded with lots of local student groups who pushed their way around, causing my 4 year old to fall down...
No food outlets available and it was even difficult to locate a drink stall or a drink vendor machine.
