The acclaimed seating area to enjoy the food from the restaurant menu is a great place to relax and enjoy the nice breeze and serene sounds of the waterfall within the jungle area.
We also have open air hammocks if you want to sit and read while your friends and family play their 1-2 hour long course. Our courses send travelers of all ages through suspension rope bridges, aerial platforms, and towering spiral staircases offering bird’s-eye perspectives of spectacular jungle scenery.
Yet founder Prapon Pantip emphasizes that Flying Hanuman is more than just an amusement park – it is an opportunity to immerse in the wondrous tropical environs that shape Thailand’s natural heritage. The lush forest setting with its diversity of exotic plants and wildlife encourages visitors to slow down and embrace their lush surroundings. The park promotes environmental conservation by funding forest restoration efforts so future generations can enjoy the same awe-inspiring landscape.
