Set amid the tropical greenery of Hon Tre Island, Vinpearl Amusement Park transforms the beach resort of Nha Trang into a destination perfect for families and thrill seekers. The excitement begins before you even reach the entrance of the park, as you ride a record-breaking 2-mile (3.2-kilometer) cable car suspended above the South China Sea.
Most Vinpearl Amusement Park tours include round-trip transport from the mainland, which eliminates the hassle of arranging multiple transfers. Admission tickets include either a 1-way or return trip on the cable car, and access to the theme park, water park, and aquarium that is home to more than 300 species of marine life.
The island resort also features a giant shopping mall, an international food court, a beach, and a giant amphitheater that can accommodate up to 5,000 spectators.
Things to Know Before You Go
- A must-visit for families and thrill seekers.
- You’re likely to do a lot of walking, so make sure you wear comfortable shoes and bring sunscreen.
- Performances that involve street magic and fire shows occur throughout the day: Be sure to check times on arrival.
- Wi-Fi is available throughout the theme park.
- The resort is also home to a 5-star hotel, if you want to stay the night.
How to Get There
Vinpearl Amusement Park is accessible by either the Vinpearl Cable Car, one of the world’s longest cable car routes, or by the Vinpearl speedboat, which is also included in your admission ticket. Speedboats depart regularly from Nha Trang pier. Taking the cable car there and the ferry back gives you the best of both worlds and allows you to enjoy views of Nha Trang Bay from the water and the air.
When to Get There
The park is open year-round, but opening times vary depending on the season. High season falls from June to August, when Vietnamese schools close for the holidays. To beat long lines for rides, try to arrive at the park as early as possible and tick off the main roller coasters before cooling down in the midday heat at the water park.
White-Knuckle Rides for Adrenaline Junkies
If you’ve got an appetite for adventure, head straight for the Extreme Carousel, a spinning carousel that flips you upside down, and a manual roller coaster that allows you to control your speed.
