The multi-award winning Waterworld Waterpark in Ayia Napa is the largest, themed waterpark in Europe. With over 21 rides and slides, all styled around ancient Greek mythology, Waterworld is Cyprus’ most popular tourist attraction pulling in 3 million visitors each year. But if you don’t want to miss out, the park is home to some fantastic one-of-a-kind rides.

Aquaventure at Atlantis, Naussau Paradise Island, Bahamas.

With over 20 million gallons of water, Aquaventure at the Atlantis resort in the beautiful Bahamas is one of the largest waterparks in the world. The main attraction is the towering Mayan Temple, home to “The Leap of Faith” ride, which plummets you down 120ft, straight through a transparent tube submerged in a shark tank! But if that doesn’t get your adrenaline pumping… twist and turn down the corkscrew coils of “The Serpent” or take a tumble through “The Falls”, a jet propelled water rollercoaster, or simply relax in the lazy river and make use of the on-site spa facilities.
