The best time to visit Vinpearl Park
It is recommended that visitors to Vinpearl Land Amusement Park buy the full ticket and come early to make the most of the theme park’s amenities. At the same time, prepare your sunscreen because it is very hot during the day!
In the late afternoon, the park can become very busy as the locals often go after 5 p.m. to get the half-priced tickets.
Keep in mind that many of the amusement park’s facilities, such as the river safari, Hoi An water park, and crafts village, close at 6 p.m. Thus, we recommend that you not arrive after 5 p.m. If you plan to enjoy everything, you should spend a day here!
Also, some roller coasters do not open until after 5 p.m., simply to avoid the daytime heat. So, if you only come for the roller coasters, save money and time by coming after 5 p.m.!
For the best experience at Vinpearl Park, it is useful for you to check the weather forecast before leaving. This is because there might be thunderstorms which are very popular in Vietnam’s summer.
What are there at Vinpearl Land Amusement Park
On your arrival at Vinpearl Land Hoi An, you can have a lovely sight of a picturesque canal surrounded by beautiful buildings that mimic Hoi An’s Old Town. The size of this area alone leaves you breathless!
The complex is newly built so it is still in the best conditions, clean, and well maintained. Near the main entrance, you can find a locker desk and there is another at the water park.
You shall pay a fee of VND 20,000 ($0.85) to rent a locker and get a key for yourself. Thus, you do not have to worry about your property when enjoying the games.
Restaurants, cafes, shops, toilets, showers, and vending machines are readily available. So if you are thirsty or hungry after your adventure there, you can have a rest and boost your energy!
3D Art museum – a unique experience
The 3D Art Museum at Vinpearl Land Amusement Park is open from 9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. daily. This amazing museum features dozens of wall art paintings!
The majority of the pieces need the visitor’s contribution to make it complete. So, it is exciting and fun to try acting and fitting in the paintings.
Furthermore, make sure someone is there to take photos of you and these witty artworks. An elephant bursts through a wall, penguins on ice, and Marilyn Monroe are just a few examples of the pieces.
Hoi An Water Park – the most awaited attraction
The water park is always loved by both children and adults. It has a huge children’s water playground with slides. The swimming pool is safe for children safe because the water level is just knee-deep.
Parents can sit in the pool and watch their kids have fun. There are “Happy Snack” booths around so family members can enjoy some popcorn while playing together.
For adults, there are many awesome water slides at Hoi An water park for them to try. Some are for single sliders and for some, you can use swimming floats for two, three, or four people to slide down. Thus, it is more fun and less scary!
5 p.m. to 6 p.m is the busiest time during the day of the Hoi An water park. It is because of the cheaper tickets. However, the park closes at 6 p.m., so we do not recommend you buy the 5 p.m. ticket. Instead, buy a full day pass, spend your time there, leave the water park before 5 p.m. to avoid the crowd.
River Safari/Zoo – Vinpearl Land Amusement Park’s speciality
On guided boats, the River Safari takes you around the zoo section of VinPearl Land Hoi An. Rhinos, white tigers, white lions, giraffes, and even elephants are among the animals seen on this safari.
If you come in the morning, you can feed the giraffes and if you visit the safari in the afternoon, the elephants will wait for you to hand-feed them.
Aviary – your children will love it!
This large birdhouse is next to the River Safari. There are various kinds of birds there including Green Wing Macaw, Blue and Gold Macaw, Scarlet Macaw, Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo, White Cockatoo, and the Electus. It is fascinating to observe them living in nature!
You can feed the birds using the available seeds and nuts there. They are very friendly and might sit on your arms and hats. That is the perfect timing to take pictures with these colorful birds!
4D/5D cinemas that you should not miss
There is a building of VinPearl Land Hoi An that is reminiscent of a “Disneyland-style” castle. Inside the castle is a 4D cinema and next to it is the 5D one. Every hour, the film will be shown, and it lasts about 15 minutes.
It will be an incredible experience to have lots of fun while avoiding the heat outside. All you have to do is put on the 3D glasses and start having fun.
If you want to try the 5D movies, then the cinema is next door. It screens 10 different movies throughout the day.
Funfair – outdoor giant games for you!
Many travelers come for these incredible rides. There are kids’ rides such as Elephants in the Sky, Cinderella’s Carousel, and Spinning Coaster. Bumper Cars is an interesting game to try with your family and friends.
For adults who are not faint-hearted, hop on the Desert Twister, Tree Swing, or even Twiss Tower – the highest drop tower in Vietnam for a thrilling experience!
Be aware that some of the games are not open until 4 p.m./5 p.m. simply because of the heat on the seats during the day. As a result, we recommend you join the funfair in the late afternoon for cooler air and also wonderful views of sunset when you are flying in the sky!
Night water and laser performance – a must-go spot
Night Water Fountain and Laser Show at 19.40 p.m. is definitely a fantastic way to cap off an enjoyable day of adventure. Here, you can watch the choreographed water fountains shooting jets of water up very high in the sky.

Before coming to the Vinpearl Land Amusement Park Hoi An, tourists should set up a plan of where to go first and where later. For instance, firstly, you can start your visit early at 9 a.m. at the water safari. It is not too hot at that time and you can feed the giraffes yourself.
Secondly, you might want to see the birds and head to the 3D museum for cooling down. After lunch, you can walk around shopping at the stores that you cannot find in the ancient town. Then, Hoi An water park should be visited in the late afternoon and last but not least, do not forget the water laser show at 19.40 p.m.
Also, visiting the 3D art museum, 4D/5D cinemas, and joining indoor games can be your little break from the summer days’ heat. If you feel tired after your water safari journey or playing outdoor games, let’s visit these places to have a rest and avoid the sun.
For those who are Hoi An water park lovers, be mindful that some of the waterslides have height restrictions of 120cm/140cm. Others might have weight restrictions. Therefore, make sure you check the information via the website or ask the swimming pool lifeguards there.
In conclusion, VinPearl Land Amusement Park is a must-see while you are in Hoi An. The nicely built scene that is inspired by Hoi An old town is an excellent location to visit and take pretty pictures. This amusement park is ideal for a fun day out with the family or large groups of tourists.
If you only want to spend an hour in the water park and go to the funfair afterward, arriving at 5 p.m. is a fantastic money-saving option. However, if you wish to see everything at the park, we highly suggest you come early on a dry day with plenty of sunscreens.
Take frequent “air conditioning” breaks and drink enough water. But most importantly, enjoy yourself! – this is what Vinpearl Land Hoi An is designed for!
