Let’s start by saying this excellent multi-award-winning Waterpark was voted the No: 1 Waterpark in Cyprus, No.3 in Europe and No.5 in the world by TripAdvisor and tbh, and they deserve every accolade they get … so, expect to find nothing but the best here and you’re guaranteed a great day out whatever your age …
I caught up with the marketing manager Socrates to find out just why they are so good … Socrates said, “We recently had a huge renovation and the theme is like ancient Cyprus, like the goddess Aphrodite’s playground, lots of pools, rocks, rivers, pillars, mature trees, shaded bits and lots of places to relax and catch the sun. But one of the best things is because all the big flumes are easy to get to especially the wild rides that all start from the top of the same platform, so if the queue is too long for one, you can just jump on another!”
While I was there, I grabbed the chance to have a good look around, check out my Live Video here … The Waterpark is set on over 35,000 square metres on the East side of Paphos, it’s well designed with lots of space to relax in-between the fun … It’s a family orientated park which also boasts the TripAdvisor award in the Top 12 Amusement Parks in Europe and btw, they’re No:1 Amusement Park in Cyprus!
My favourite slides include; ‘Zero Gravity ‘ jump on the rubber ring, with your best friend next to you and race down the slide and back up the other side ’til you reach zero gravity and go back the way you came … the feeling is awesome!
Next race your friends down the Cannon Drop bareback … Side by side, these 2 Tubes will hurtle you down really fast and flip you into the air with a surge of water, somersaulting if you wanna …
Get ready to break the speed limit as you plummet 50ft down an almost vertical drop in just a few seconds and into a big splash at the bottom … the experience is extraordinary!
Are you ready to test your limits on Aqua Infinity … This is one of the most exhilarating slides in the park … on your back, feet forward, hands crossed, you’ll drop at crazy speeds down the tunnel into three 360° Loops of twists and twirls, where you won’t even know what’s around the corner, before 30 metres of splashing water that’ll freshen you up before slowing down ’til you hit the pool … Brilliant!
This is one of the newest and craziest slides in the park … Choose either a single or double Raft … off you go down the Crazy Double Cone, an enclosed tube where you’ll embark on a wild journey before sliding up the walls of the first cone into a pendulum of confusion as you get pushed up the other wall of the second cone and finish off sliding down to the bottom .. I just love it!
This slide is a ‘must do’ for all adrenalin seekers and it’s probably the most prominent feature in the park … The Kamikaze is wet, it’s wild and it’s one of those white-knuckled flumes that’ll leave your heart pumping with adrenalin, so take a deep breath and hurtle down over the dips that’ll leave your stomach in your mouth and all I can add to that is you’ll probably say “let’s do that again!” … It’s my absolute favourite!
Wave Surge Pool
This park also boasts the biggest Wave Pool in Europe, where every hour, on the hour, for 15 minutes you can ride the waves in the huge pool.
Jump into a family Ringo or just two of you and off you all go, down over a hundred metres of twists and turns. It’s a little more sedate than some of the rides so you can see what’s happening around the park … Check out this Video of their Slides & Rides here
It might be time to slow things down as you glide down the Lazy River … Then switch up the adrenalin down the Raging River and finish off back down the Lazy River again … around the Wave Pool, flitting past The Wave Bar, aka Adult Corner, a must for a drink later serving all your favourite spirits, beers and exotic cocktails … and if you like this one you’ll also love the Wet Bubble and the Super Volcano … check out their YouTube videos below …
Food & Drink
There’s plenty of places to get lunch, a snack or just an ice cream around the park … One bar serves Fish & Chips another International Fast Food and one, of course, serves Traditional Donner Kebabs … There’s also an excellent Chinese Restaurant for a delicious Chicken Curry and a Pizza Cabin … oh and, a Kosher Corner too …
It’s extremely rare that they are ever needed but all their lifeguards and slide guards are professionally trained in first aid and first aid practices. They are there to make sure you meet the age and height limit for some of the slides and naturally to make sure everyone has a safe and fun day out
On occasional days of the week, the park invites one of the local DJ’s to play all your favourite tunes, all day and their mascot Froggie is there to entertain the kids too … In fact, there’s just so much happening here you’ll want to take advantage of their Family Pass and 2 Day Pass because you’ll definitely want to go back again!
I just love the cashless system here … You get a wrist band, you just scan it in, then you can buy food and drinks and icecreams all day from all of their restaurants and kiosks and when you’re ready to go home you just scan it again andpay for what you’ve had … Brilliant!
