Speaking of standards. Years ago, we went to Siam Park to play in the water with our daughter. We found shade by the slide and it was quite entertaining. This is the only Thai guy that was able to stand up going down the slide so I'm thinking he set the standard. Many others tried to and it was a blast watching them tumble on the way down. I was surprised there was only one broken arm that afternoon.

Oh my God - I haven't been there for maybe 8-9 years but I saw the same guy doing the exact same thing!  Same hair, same budgie smugglers.

and is having a licence going to improve safety ?

 

I think not, standards cost money to enforce and maintain - money Thailand is unwilling to spend

Possibly not, but with the drop-off in tourism of 20%-30% & safety being high on the list of tourist complaints I think having to be inspected to get a licence is a step in the right direction.

How about an annual licence with a 90 day check to see if standards are maintained properly.

Good parks in Bad parks out...

Works for farangs !!

Does that mean there might be an opening for 'licence agents' who will handle everything for them, for a fee?

Disgusting that they put children’s and young people’s lives at risk by allowing them to operate without inspection and licensing.

 

Would you let your kids travel on a train that hadn’t been fully tested and authorized?

 

Oh oh I forgot, here they let 13 year olds ride 1000cc motorcycles!

The Bangkok Metropolitan Authority have been inspecting themes parks in Bangkok and have discovered that only 33 have the requisite licences

How difficult is it to record the Licence expiry date in the BMA computers and send inspectors to the sites a month before hand ?
