“such a great time!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013

My boyfriend and I went here for our anniversary a few months back. We'd been living in Krakow for a while and had seen signs for it, so we decided to check it out. We were not disappointed! The slides were different levels of thrill, and we went on them several times. My favorite part was the lazy river - it actually goes pretty fast! They also have a wave pool, obstacle courses, and even a lap pool (which I wouldn't recommend for an actual workout. there were a lot of kids in that pool too). There are places to stand and let the water massage you and salt water jacuzzis. I think it's perfect for young couples, families with children, or even older people, since there's something for everyone. Would absolutely recommend! The one issue we had was getting there: we took the bus and ended up walking a little further than expected. It's sort of hidden behind a grocery store. but otherwise, totally awesome.

“good waterpark not incredibly safe though...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2013

hi im this tripadvisor account owners daughter i decided to write this account as my dad (the account holder) did not come to it instead me and my mother did

anyway i came here as it was very hot and we could not find anything to do the website boasts lots of slides but there are in fact only 7 or 8 and very widely spread apart for that fact. i will now give you the pros and the cons

cons
inside you will find one yellow twisty slide that only lasts for 1 minute and when youre spat out you end up flying into the pool and getting a bruise on your bum then theres 3 huge slides that look fun but actually hurt you i went on the first one which wasnt so bad then the middle one which has a kinda bowl that you get spun around in and pushed down i was flu[ped over like an egg in that one then theres the third one where i hit my head (twice) and got flipped over again

finally theres a green and yellow slide that wen you land youre in really shallow water and you get flipped around theres also 3 water volleyball courts that were in constant use, a climbing wall and a basketball net theres also a huge staircase that you have to walk up to get to the huge slides (see one of the pictures there not my pictures by the way there someone else's just so you know)

outside theres a few sun beds a pool that only comes up to your ankles and some grass and thats about it

when we were leaving i made the mistake of going on the first big slide again and hit my head (again)

then to add insult to injury none of the lifeguards spoke english

pros

the changing rooms are very clean. the staff outside the actual waterpark are very polite especially the lady who got us a taxi to the galleria krakowska (shopping centre very good!)

wont be hurrying back

“A great way to the spend the day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2013

Park Wodny has several slides and activities. The slides are of different difficulties, so you can find one for your liking. They have also juccuzzies and different sorts of pools. One small pool were used for volleyball, which was very popular. The whole centre was clean and well kept. They have a cafe-area both inside where the pools are and outside in the waiting-area.
When you buy a ticket, you get an armband with a chip that you can lock your personal wardrobe - very smart.

“Summer all the year round”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2013

Park Wodny Krakówthe is the largest water park in Europe. There are 8 roller coasters with total length 740 m, which is really impressive! I can say, that despite the fact, that it may sound rather frightening, it is absolutely safe, because practically everywhere there are members of staff, who instruct and help you all the time. Also you are provided with gym, fitness club, solarium, sauna, beauty salon, restaurants, cafes and bars, that’s why I like it!

“Good fun on a rainy day in Krakow”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

It's easy to get there by bus.

You pay based upon time or you can also get an unlimited ticket. As someone else has said - remember that your time includes changing time. On entry you are given a electronic wrist band which allows them to tell how long you've been. Any over stay is charged by the minute.

Entry fee includes a locker which is also operated by your wrist strap, so you don't need a coin which is handy.

There are lots of attractions:
- 4 very tall slides
- 2 short but very fast slides
- a bowl type slide
- several smaller slides for kids
- a climbing wall
- lilly pads to climb on
- lots of powerful water jets to pummel and massage your back
- a rapids area with fast flowing water
- a wave area
- a kids area with climbing frames etc
- several jacuzzis

The place is generally clean, although a couple of slides looked a little grubby when we visited. All the signing was in English, German and Russian as well as Polish so it's easy to get around.

The changing/locker room is communal with individual cubicles to get changed in, but you have to go through a single-sex shower area to get to and from the pool.

It's lots of fun and the ideal activity for a rainy day in Krakow!
