The best waterparks in Majorca

Whoever you’re travelling with, waterparks are a big hit and sure to be on your list of things to check out when in Majorca. This beautiful island has the largest influx of tourism of any of the Balearics, meaning it has become very good at providing waterparks for you to cool down and have fun in.

Waterparks are a must for either the adventurous thrill-seeker or the laid-back chill-seeker, and whether you’re looking to kick it in the sun, or throw yourself down slides, you can bet there’ll be something for you on your holidays to Majorca.

Aqualand in S'Arenal

Aqualand is one of the largest waterparks in the world, which is quite a feat considering there are over 2,000 across the globe. The attractions at this watery paradise range from huge adrenaline pumping slides, to smooth wave pools, and from relaxing sunbathing, to splash pools for the little ones.

The most impressive ride visually is the King Cobra, which is essentially a massive, open-mouthed snake that you slide towards at great speed with the teeth overhead. Watch out, he’s a slippery fellow!

Hidropark in Port d'Alcudia

Described as an unforgettable day out, the entire family will love Hidropark. Located on the northeast side of Majorca, people flock from all over the island to get soaked in Port d’Alcudia.

You can race your friends and family on slides, throw yourself screaming down the Kamikaze, spin wildly on the Soft Track and get soaked in the Wave Pool. If you’ve got young children, you can let them explore their very own water kingdom in the Children’s World and Minipark sections.

MarAventura in Playa de Muro

MarAdventura is a floating waterpark in Playa de Muro, which sits on the easterly side of the island, getting sun throughout the day. This makes it one of the best places to spend hours of your holiday, as you race or battle your friends on the gravity-defying water assault course.

It has trampolines, slides, balancing platforms and climbing apparatus, which all dip and dive wildly on the ocean surface, challenging you to try and not lose your footing. If you don’t fancy a go, you can watch from the beach and enjoy a cool, refreshing drink as your loved ones topple into the water again and again.

Western Waterpark in Magaluf

A waterpark with a difference, as the name suggests, this one is Wild West themed. So, amuse yourself at the many puns and cowboy-styled attractions at Western Waterpark on the edge of Magaluf.

Take the plunge as you race your friends to the end of the Los 4 Diablos. Or get some serious adrenaline going with the Boomerang or The Beast slides – the waterpark’s challenges to its visitors, to test their bravery. Are you willing to throw yourself down a 30-metre vertical drop, or tackle a huge half pipe?

Aqua Arena in Paguera, Magaluf, Portals Nous and Ca'n Picafort

Aqua Arena has the most waterparks on Majorca, with one at Ca’n Picafort in the northeast, while the others surround Magaluf and Palma. They have so many locations as the company hasn’t been able to fit all of their attractions in one place.

Aqua Arena is one of the most challenging and exciting floating water courses in the world, with towering climbing walls, bouncy castles, huge floating rubber rings and, of course, plenty of opportunities to knock your friends into the drink. You may want to take a tour of every site, to see what is unique in each one.
