In 2001, the construction of Ho Thuy Tien Park was announced with a total investment of more than 70 billion Vietnamese dongs. This construction was announced in hopes to boost the tourism. The plan was to make a waterpark which consisted of water-themed games, thrilling games, an aquarium palace, exhibitions, wild animals, fairy gardens, food courts, and cultural village amidst the park.

Why it was abandoned?

In June 2004 the park was opened, even though it was not completed. The launch was not successful and the waterpark was going in a loss which is why it shut down. I order to pay off the bank loans the project was sold to a company called HACO Hue. Instead, of making the situation better for the waterpark, things worsened. The new investors planned to build an ecotourism area which consisted of a convention center, spas, restaurants, traveling accommodations, outdoor events, and arts. However, not much care was invested in the preparation and the waterpark gradually depreciated. The number of visitors declined and the unfinished areas were still in progress.

In 2017, Hue People’s Committee gave the management rights to another local authority. Moreover, HACO Hue violated Vietnamese laws of the land for postponed execution of the project.

The abandoned waterpark entrance is covered with grass. The area in front of the entertainment vicinity is now dominated by grass hills and a fertile feast for cattle raised by residents.

The entire look of the waterpark is similar to the one in a horror movie.

The most interesting part of the park and the main attraction is the dragon head in the middle of a green lake. The hallway consists of plaster sea creatures, a staircase which looks like the inside of a huge lizard, and the best part is that you can look across the park from the dragon’s mouth.
