There’s no end to the fun you can have in a waterpark from whizzing down big chutes to making a splash on the fast river rapids, and testing out the wave pools. In fact, we think waterparks are a great place for a family day out, providing hours of fun whatever your age. If you’re all about the thrill head straight to the white knuckle kamikaze rides, or if chilling is the name of your game the lazy rivers will be right up your street.
So if you’ve booked a holiday to mainland Spain or you’re thinking of booking one, put your feet up because we’ve done the leg work for you and rounded up the best waterparks in mainland Spain.
Costa Caribe Aquatic Park
You might be in the Mediterranean, but with soft reggae music gently playing and a Caribbean theme throughout the park, you could be fooled into thinking you are slap-bang in the middle of a Caribbean Island.
Home to Europe’s largest free-fall waterslide King Khajuna, dare you take the 31 metre drop? El Rio Loco also known as the ‘Mad River’ is full of surprises from spinning currents to waves and waterfalls, so you never know what awaits you as you turn each corner. And little ones are well catered for in La Laguna de Woody where they can spend hours exploring slides, fountains, and tunnels. One thing is for sure, with over 50,000 square meters to discover one visit to this park isn’t enough.
Aqualandia opened its doors in 1985 and was Spain’s first waterpark. A great choice of attractions await you here from Verti-Go where you can reach speeds of up to 100 kilometres or Splash where you can race against the clock to see who reaches the bottom first. Little ones can also enjoy the action in Adventureland, this area offers all kinds of water-filled fun to keep younger guests occupied. But if you prefer to chill then why not head over to Grand Jacuzzi where you can enjoy a water massage?
Located in the resort of Lloret, you’ll find the action packed Waterworld. Filled with adrenaline pumping rides, this is one for the brave. Speed Furious, a vertical descent slide, is bound to test your limits, so if you love new and exciting thrills this is a must – but beware this isn’t one for the faint hearted.
And if you’re travelling with kids Wawe Pool is great for families with waves reaching up to two metres high, while Kiddie Island keeps the smaller ones entertained with its range of children centred slides and water activities.
Parque Acvático Vera
Do you love the thrill of the slides? Dare you ride the kamikaze? Or do you love to jump the waves? Well, it doesn’t matter because at Parque Acvático Vera you’ll get chance to ride them all. Children are also well catered for here with their own slides and splash cube. But if all this is too much and you fancy a more laid-back waterpark experience then we suggest you head over to the lake pool, this is a great place to relax if you want to escape those screaming thrill seekers.
Will you be making a splash this summer?
