My partner and I went to Aquashow when we were in Portugal (staying in the Oceanus - brilliant hotel), from the 1st to the 9th September. Locals advise to avoid, avoid, AVOID attractions like this in high summer as you'll spend most of your day getting sunburnt in looooonnnggg queues, but at this time of year its better with waits of around 10 to 20 minutes.
The rides are varied and fun - some leaving us more wowed than others - and the park as a whole is very safe with close supervision everywhere. Good for families.
Most of the food places were closed when we went (due to end of season, I expect) so take a packed lunch or snacks with you. Lockers available to hire for a deposit of 7 Euros. Most park photos cost 10 Euros but are very nice.
Swimming with the sealions: most people I heard say its fun but not really worth the money, but it is worth keeping an eye for photo sessions with the sealions for just 10 euros! The animals spend a lot of time in a smaller pool which is used for swimming sessions, which some people seemed to (stupidly) think was their actual enclosure - in fact the animals are healthy and stimulated.
Lots of areas for picnicking but take towels to sit on as people 'reserve' picnic tables when they arrive by leaving their stuff on them (which shouldn't really be allowed in my opinion but there it is).
All in all a fun day - we booked through Expose from opening to closing, which on reflection might have been a little too long for us but probably not if you have kids or go in high summer.
