We were staying in Catania for a week and we decided to visit. It is an absolute must!
We were a bit concerned about getting there but our hotel ( San Max Hotel) booked us a private transfer. He was great ( lucio); picked us up and was very polite. Spoke English and drove us to the place. We got there for about 11ish. Only took half an hour to get there. He gave us his number and we said we would call before needing to be collected at about midnight.
We bought a 2 park day pass and visited the water park in the day time. The park is pretty big and we got a little bit disorientated at first. Lockers were €5 plus €5 deposit with ID. The queues were fairly short ( longest queue was about 30mins) but most were about 10mins. They had loads of different slides...water temp was fine. A little bit cold on first entry but you warm up quick with the sun. 1.40m is the height for the big rides. Food was good....We ordered what we thought was a slice of pizza each with chips and a drink for €9.....out came a huge pizza (10-12 inch) made fresh and tasted yummy. The party in the pool is a must! Music and dancing!
Staff were friendly and spoke English which helped. Changing rooms were a bit congested. If you want a shower it is €1 for 3 mins. Plenty of toilets around the park which were cleaned regularly. If you want a lounger you had to pay but lots of people just found grass to sit/sunbathe on. You can also bring in picnics but you cannot bring glass bottles.
Then we went to the theme park! That was just amazing. Staff were brilliant...especially Davide on the storm ride. He was so much fun! Another guy on the El Darado was brilliant....made jokes in Italian to us....translated to English for us....We totally got taken for a ride but it was funny.
So many good rides and if you had little kids there was also loads for them too. Queues for theme park big rides were tiny! It stayed open till 1am but we left at midnight.
I love theme parks and water parks but have never been to one like this and it was just top. Some water type rides were open in both parks which were cool.
The ticket was a combo one and was €35 ish.
