Splash! That’s the sound of the summer ending and the winter season kicking off. Your sunny holidays have been and gone for another year but fear not, we have some of the most fantastic water parks you can visit even in these chill winter months. That’s because all around the world, there are water parks which are open all year round! Who knew? So we have put together a list of the most famous parks around for anyone who wants to relax around the pool, enjoy family friendly slides or jump onto adrenalin junkie rides. Let’s stop talking and dive straight into the action!
To kick things off, it’s Siam Park, located in sunny Tenerife. Construction of the park started way back in 2004 and was officially opened to the public in September 2008. Over the years it’s been open, Siam Park has earned the nickname of the “Water Kingdom” as it is the world’s first green water park!
If you’re wondering if this is the place for you, Siam Park has a grand total of 12 rides varying from the ‘Tower of Power’, one of the best water parks in the world, to the ‘Lost City’, making it the perfect place for all ages to enjoy. It also has the world’s longest lazy river and 120 games for children to play. With all this fun, there’s no wonder Siam Park claims to be the most spectacular water attraction in Europe but we’ll let you test the water with that statement!
Next on the list is Alpamare in Switzerland. This is Europe’s largest covered water and fun park and is home to 11 slides and 4 incredible pools. What more could you want? On a sunny day, have a swim in the Rio Mare pool with a view over Lake Zurich or, on a winters day, relax in the Alpa-Therme pool where temperatures range between 28 – 32 degrees celcius. Can you imagine relaxing in the warm water, taking in the views of the white glistening snow? It all sounds good, right? Well in addition to the slides and pools they also have a gym, and fitness classes are provided on site too!
Finally, there is Alton Towers Waterpark! Previously known as Cariba Creek and first opened in 2003, the park is situated within the Alton Towers resort in Staffordshire, England. The water park, themed to a tropical lagoon, has an incredible 7 pools and 10 waterslides where guests can enjoy some of thrilling adventures the park has to offer. Why not try out The Master Blaster? It’s the main ride at the park and has views of the entire park. However, it is not for the faint hearted as it is a high speed slide with twists and turns, dark sections and sudden drops.
