Isla Magica - Seville

This is a small park catered to families and although there’s not a great deal of thrill rides, there are good shows and water rides – a welcome escape from the heat. You can ride the roller coasters, get drenched on the log fume or try out the 4D cinema. And, to make things even better, there’s a newly-opened waterpark inside too, so get ready for some fun in the sun.

Tivoli World - Benalmadena

Tivoli World is a cross between a theme park and a fairground with plenty of attractions suitable for younger children, such as ferris wheels and go-karts. It’s open until midnight in the height of summer, so riding the illuminated rides at night is a great way to skip the daytime queues.

Oasys Mini Hollywood – Almeria

Spain loves its Wild West adventure parks and Almeria is no exception. Immerse yourself in a spaghetti Western town while you watch cowboy shows with epic stunts and walk through the replica town. Children will enjoy the park’s zoo along with a parrot show. There are lots of places to feed the little ones including a replica saloon, when lunchtime comes calling.

Gnomo Park – Lloret de Mar

This gnome themed children’s fun park is built in a magical forest. There’s not too much for adults to do here, but young children will love their experience so much, they won’t want to leave.

Gnomo Park has plenty of activities including indoor and outdoor playgrounds, assault courses, a ball pool, craft room, waterpark, ropes course in the trees, mini golf and trampolines. Give your kids the best day out and don’t forget to visit the animals at the mini farm before you leave.

Esca Park – Malaga

If you’re looking for something distinct to do for the older kids in your family, or if you’re holidaying with a group of friends, test out your intellect and survival skills as Esca Park. This escape room game gives its participants 60 minutes to unravel the mysteries of a hidden room.

Working as a team of 2 to 6 people, you must try to quickly solve the quirky and inventive puzzles that’ll help you finally escape the room. Don’t worry, if you don’t make it in the allotted time, you’ll still be let out.
