“Great fun but expensive”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

I felt expensive considering that we have to queue minimum 1/2 hour to ride anything interesting. Kids get bored, and dont enjoy fully If not so crowd, park will be fantastic. For young children its excellent.

“take your wallet”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

we ventured here during our recent holiday and must say it is really expensive even with money off vouchers for the 3 of us we had spent nearly 100 euros before even touching any water, after entrance fee we paid for locker, rings, sunbeds, photos , food it really is expensive and could do with a revamp, my son loved it which is the main thing but be prepared to shell out!

“Average - not as good as Portaventura water park in Salou”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

We combined the water park with the crocodile park. We made our own way there by bus - easy to find. Tickets weren't cheap for a family of 4 - when we got inside we found that despite paying a lot to get in your then had to pay for the hire of the rings - we didn't bother. We had a great afternoon we arrived about 2 pm and we stayed until 7 pm when the park closed. It began to get quiet from 5 pm onwards so my sons didn't have to wait long to go on the slides etc. on the whole we did enjoy it but I do think it is expensive - the hire of the inflatables should be included in the price.

We managed to catch the Aqualand bus going back to the hotel which was really convenient - I think it was 3 euro each to Benalmadena.

“Hilarious day out, but go prepared!”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

We bought tickets through an agent, we could have got them cheaper by using money off coupons or showing your boarding pass if you fly Ryanair but this way we didn't need to queue and let me tell you at 10am it was busy! If you have prebooked tickets go straight to gate 5 and just walk in, don't wait to get to the window. It's all very unorganised and nobody seems to know what to do we queued for a bit before realising but it wasn't really an issue!

We didn't pay to rent rings, which you do need to get on the good rides, I refused to pay an extra 30 odd euros on top of the entry price just because I thought what a massive rip off and money making scheme it all is. We waited for the free rings at each ride, we didn't wait long and the kids didn't mind, we usually queued if it was a long wait and let them run off and go on a nearby ride that you didn't need a ring for. It worked out well. That is the problem with this place it is a massive rip off when you're in. You have to pay for a locker too which I suppose is expected but €5 and then a €2 deposit and it's not massive, we managed to fit all our stuff in and there was four of us but try to travel light with your footwear and clothes, save space for drinks! Food and drink is extortionate - €12.50 for a crappy pizza no thanks! We took our own drink and had a big breakfast at the hotel, then got back for about 5pm for snack time!

Apart from it being a massive money pit if you let it we had a brilliant time here, the rides are all fun and going in the double rings is hilarious! Go on the big rides first thing before the queues, cones and the boomerang are well worth a go. Then the racing slides which are great and no real queuing time at all. We got on everything more than once, the Rapids three times as they have lots of free rings on here.

All in all worth a visit, the kids said it was their favourite day which is what it's all about. Go prepared and take your own food and drink. Also the agent said not to go at the weekend so we went on Monday. Great day out!

“Alright for the money. Been to better water parks”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

Went here glad we had a voucher. Would advised booking on line as it's cheaper. Bit expensive. We took our own food. Got in early and went and did the big popular rides first then relaxed. We stayed the whole day to get the most out of it. Very busy and a lot of queuing.
