Angkor Water Park will have rides supplied by WhiteWater Credit: Thai Nero
One of the most significant waterpark projects in Southeast Asia is currently under development in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, with the US$55m (€48.3m, £43.2m) Angkor Water Park set to open its doors by the end of the year.

LYP Group, which owns the Safari World Zoo in Phnom Penh, is building the waterpark next to the existing attraction.

WhiteWater West and Polin are supplying the development. Whitewater's flowrider, wave pool, lazy river, four-person abyss, a boomerango for one or two people, a four-person constrictor and a super bowl are included, as are Polin's Windigo, Kamikaze, Looping Rocket and Special Themed Water Play Structure S1.

Working alongside WhiteWater and Polin, design and management has been carried out by Thai Nero, an engineering and management company based in Bangkok, Thailand.

The waterpark is set over 60,000sq m (645,000sq ft) and will alongside the zoo become an "entertainment hub in the city", according to LYP Group, which also touts the project as the Cambodian capital's first international-standard waterpark development. Ly Yong Phat, owner of LYP Group, said in a statement that the park would be larger than the nearby Cartoon Network Waterpark – a world-class development which opened in 2014 in neighbouring Thailand.
