2. Siam Park – Tenerife, Spain

The outstanding Siam Park is designed according to its name. It is an opulent Thai paradise in the middle of Tenerife. Be prepared for the multiple dragons and water-slides motivated by snake names.

Shame there are not more temples with slides instead of stairs

This sprawling Tenerife water park boasts the world’s largest artificial wave pool, including a ‘Thai Temple’ which houses a 90 foot tall (28m) water slide. That’s right, the water slide is so steep that its almost vertical! This is where you will experience the most insane ride, a favorite of boys (and men) of all ages 😉

3. Tropical Islands’ Amazonia – Brandenburg, Germany

Amazonia is located roughly an hour’s drive from Berlin. It is an extensive 35,000-square-meter paradise of water. Tropical Islands’ Amazonia also features a 27-meter high waterslide tower. It even has an indoor ocean as well as a heated lagoon.

Kids can enjoy their time in a kiddie pool that features a water play table. You can take some break after splashing around to participate in a mini-golf or an air balloon ride. Those who love nature should visit the park’s indoor rainforest with an array of worldwide plant species. And after a long day, you can visit the bubble loungers and massage pools to relax your body.

4. Aquaworld – Budapest, Hungary

Aquaworld is one of the main indoor water parks in Europe. It is located in northern Budapest and showcases a contemporary water temple inspired by Angkor Wat in Cambodia.

Additionally, Aquaworld has 11 huge waterslides inspired by names like Flying Carpet and Kamakaze. Its 19 pools include wave and surf pools, and the water park’s design fits all families. For parents, saunas and thermal baths will add to their fun as children enjoy the suspended bridges, numerous kids’ programs and so on. 


Determined to make your Europe tour worthwhile? The above-mentioned water attractions will help ensure you have a unique experience. However since there are way too many to explore all in a single trip, it helps to plan ahead and do your research 😉
