Thrills and Spills at Siam Park

Siam Park, situated on the TF1 highway in Costa Adeje, is the world’s first green water park. Whether you’re on holiday with the kids, as a couple, or with a group of friends, a day out getting wet and wild is sure to be an unforgettable adventure!

Siam Park: Fun For Everyone!

Family visitors to the park rave about it, which is no surprise considering how much kids love water slides and wave pools! It is, quite simply, the ultimate children’s day out on the island. And, despite being only a few years old, Siam is already thought of as one of the best water parks in the world, as well as holding the coveted position as the most impressive in all of Europe.

Rides include the Volcano, a four-person water slide which sees visitors spinning around the outside of a volcano crater; The Dragon, a slide with a light show inside a 20-metre wide funnel; and the Naga Racer, a high-octane face-first six-lane racing slide.

Perhaps the attraction with the biggest wow factor, however, is the Wave Palace, a wave pool boasting a massive artificial sandy beach and three metre high waves. It has the highest artificial wave pool waves in the entire world.

Close behind, comes the iconic Tower of Power, a totally transparent, almost vertical side, 28m in length, which visitors plunge down, before emerging through an aquarium populated by sharks and stingrays. Though, not to worry. The slide doesn’t actually go through the shark tank! The chute travels through the tank, before riders come out of the end, with an almighty splash. Still, the sharks must wonder what on earth is going on!

Other attractions include the world’s longest lazy river, a chance to ride some rapids on family rafts, a 200-metre long slide and friendly, frolicking sea lions.

About Siam Park

Siam opened in late 2008. It has a Thai theme, being based on the ancient kingdom of Siam, and contains the largest grouping of Thai-themed buildings anywhere in the world except Thailand.

There is a range of impressive restaurants offering authentic Thai food on the 46-acre site and the park even boasts a water-borne Thai market.

Water at the park is heated to a comfortable 25C or 77F. Being built on a hill, the slides are able to slope naturally over the natural curves and drops of the surrounding land. All water used in the park comes from an on-site desalination plant and is recycled after use by using it to water plants around the park.

If all the wild splashing fun is less to your tastes, then perhaps you’d prefer a bit of sea swimming in Tenerife? If so, we’ve got just the guide for you! Check out our guide to the best spots for a dip.
