When it comes to planning summer vacations, water parks are a must. Whether you are looking for some afternoon fun with your children or want to try the scariest and biggest water slides in the world, water parks will be a perfect addition to your schedule. Luckily you don’t have to travel the world searching for a perfect water park because we have compiled a list of five best parks in the world that you definitely shouldn’t miss.
Siam Park, Spain
Once voted the best water park in the world, this immense adventure-filled place should definitely be on your list of places to visit. It is located on the Canary Islands, in Spain and you’ll be sure to find something for you whether you are there with your family or friends. There are three sections depending on how extreme you want slides to get: there is the adrenaline section for all the adventurers out there, the family section that is great for children and the relax section for those who just want to enjoy a good, sunny day.
Universal’s Volcano Bay, Florida
Universal Studios Orlando really stepped up when it comes to their world-class water park Universal’s Volcano Bay. The biggest difference between this park and all the rest is that there is no waiting in line! That’s right. With their new TapuTapu wristband technology, they have successfully overcome long lines and endless waiting that always bothers the guests in other parks. This way, you will have more free time to enjoy the activities and explore the beauty of this tropical paradise before your wristband informs you that it is your turn at the slide.
Blizzard Beach, Disney World, Florida
This park was designed as a melted ski resort, so you are able to see snow residues and other decors that you would never expect to see at a water park. This theme is pretty interesting even before you take into account all the impressive slides, and it makes for pretty confusing pictures that you can later show to your relatives. However, children will particularly enjoy going to Blizzard Beach because they will be able to bump into Olaf and other ‘Frozen’ characters. If you are not here for the cartoon characters, this water park still has to offer one of the tallest and scariest slides, Mount Gushmore.
Aquaventure Waterpark, Atlantis, The Bahamas
If you happen to be planning a trip to the Bahamas, you have probably been recommended the Paradise Island resort. This is because the resort is connected to the Aquaventure Waterpark which is where you would want to be if you are looking for the best way to get your adrenaline kick. Of course, you don’t have to be a guest of the resort, you can just buy a day pass. We suggest trying the almost vertical Leap of Faith slide from which you fall right down into a shark-filled lagoon. Now that is a kind of experience that you won’t get anywhere else.
Aquaventure Waterpark, Atlantis Palms, United Arab Emirates
This beautiful water park was inspired by the lost city of Atlantis and every mythology-enthusiast out there will appreciate all the subtle detail and nods to myths. If you are not afraid, you can try out the popular Tower of Neptune which will propel you uphill on a ride through dark tunnels before ultimately throwing you out in the luxurious river.
