One of the reasons why we wanted to go to Nha Trang this year is to take the kids to Vinpearl Land. We just knew the kids with their cousins will have a blast. And it all starts with a cable ride across the ocean.
I found out that my mother-in-law (MIL) is afraid of heights and was trying to get back out from the whole cable ride. But the only option would be to ride a boat which nobody wanted. So…
She had no choice but to ride. It was a beautiful Friday morning, not so windy so the cars weren’t shaky and the view is just awesome!
There was a cruise ship parked right at the port.
And as it turned out, my MIL was too busy having selfies taken that she totally forgot her fear of heights. 😛
Unfortunately though, Vinpearl Land was in the middle of renovations so yup, no Water Park. 😦 The whole thing was closed off but to compensate, lunch was free for all.
Unlike our family’s first visit, there were a lot of people this time of the year. And it was fun! I remember my sister riding the roller coaster by her lonesome. This time, it was way different. There were lines — but all moved quickly except for the luge which my family lined up for an hour!
Since the Water Park was closed, we were able to check out most of the rides.
And of course the shops! 😀
Back in 2010, the castle wasn’t here yet. This housed the 4D Theatre.
According to my youngest, he enjoyed this activity more than the rest.
The European Carnival was in Vinpearl when we visited and we enjoyed an afternoon of entertainment.
We also went to the aquarium!
The lighting wasn’t so good. 😛
More on that later.
We stayed until the Dancing Fountain Show at 7:30 PM and left soon afterwards.
