Wipeout at Lake Hut

Wacky water wipeout course

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 3.5 stars

Located on Laem Son Lake, the Wipeout aquatic obstacle course combines with Lake Hut's restaurant and bar to be one of Ko Pha Ngan's most hilarious attractions.

The course includes a rope swing, monkey bars, padded tubular rollers that spin as you run over them, a huge blow-up “iceberg” that you can climb up and jump off, and finally, three huge red balls that are a fair distance from one another and must be traversed to finish the course. (Hint: when you encounter the red balls, let your inner frog take over.) Wipeout also has a new toy called the blob -- we'll let you wait and see what that's all about for yourself.

Overlooking the course stands Lake Hut, a two-tiered open-air thatched roof structure where you can enjoy tasty Thai and Western food to go with wine, beer, cocktails, smoothies and soft drinks. There's nothing like sitting back with a cold one as you watch your sweetie face-plant into the tubular rollers and then belly-flop into the lake. Though injuries are very uncommon, strong-swimming British owner Gregg acts as lifeguard. If seeking a more peaceful activity, rent one of Lake Hut's kayaks for an hour's exploration of picturesque Laem Son Lake.
