The Bangkok Metropolitan Authority have been inspecting themes parks in Bangkok and have discovered that only 33 have the requisite licences. 
 
Fifteen inspected since April do not and are therefore not up to the standards set by the BMA. 
 
Of these nine are in the process of applying for licences and six have been issued with notices of 7 or 15 days to apply or the owners will face 50,000 baht fines and six month jail terms. 
 
Daily News pictured BMA deputy Thaweesak Lertpraphan, government ministerial level staff and other officials enjoying a day out at one of the theme parks on the acceptable/licensed list. This was Bangkok's Siam Park, a long established theme park in the capital.

All the inspected parks are either stand alone facilities like Siam Park or "Suan Sanuk" or fun parks and other facilities in department stores in the capital. 
 
Daily News published the list of fully licensed and approved facilities. They did not give details of the ones that so far had not been given approval or who had not even applied for a license.

'discovered'?

I'm glad they're on the ball, so to speak.

Which park with a licence has dobbed in the others without one?

 

That's the second discovery today:

'Police raided traders in Khao San Road earlier this morning after it was "discovered" they were selling balloons filled with nitrous oxide'.

 

Coming up: Dr Livingstone I presume? Foreign doctor 'discovered' in the wilderness of Bangna working illegally.

Would that not be more relevant in view of safety? Or are only a few people at risk of being hurt, killed or maimed?

I'm surprised that I didn't see Dreamworld on this list

It is outside Bangkok that's why. In Pathum Thani.
