I didnt realise that it was closed. Usually it is arranged to have a fire BEFORE something closes down!

Fire at closed Dinosaur Planet theme park


https://www.bangkokpost.com/news/genera ... recent_box

A fire broke out at Dinosaur Planet on Friday afternoon as workers were tearing down the amusement park, which closed its doors to the public last month, on Sukhumvit Road in Bangkok.


Traffic Police reported on the @fm91trafficpro Twitter account that the fire began around 3pm and pictures on several Twitter accounts showed black smoke billowing into the sky.
Firefighters put out the fire about 20 minutes later, it added.

Police at Thong Lor station are investigating the cause of the blaze. No injuries have been reported.
It was the second fire at the park, located between Soi Sukhumvit 22 and 24. The first was in April 2016.
Dinosaur Planet closed on April 20 this year after two years in operation.

That's the second fire in a few months. The ferris wheel was the first time, a few days after family was there riding it! They're not out of business but moving to somewhere else I believe. Pete :cheers:

I'll try and find out what is going to happen to the area the Dinosaur Park is located in. The original plan was for it to be the third part of 'EmDistrict', along with Emporium and Emquartier, owned by The Mall group, which sit either side of Phrom Phong BTS, just the other side of the park.
