The world’s best water parks revealed

The world’s best water parks revealed
  • Aquaventure at Atlantis Paradise Island has a ride that culminates in a tunnel submerged in a shark tank
  • Germany is home to the world’s biggest indoor water park – Tropical World in Krausnick 
  • Beach Park in Brazil boasts a ride called Insano – a slide that guests hurtle down at 65mph

Pack your swimsuit and your sense of adventure because water parks are not just for children.

Some of the world’s best combine white-knuckle, adrenaline-filled rides with relaxing activities for those not so keen to make a splash.

Orlando may be home to Disney World but water lovers should head to its neighbour SeaWorld (seaworldparks.co.uk), where Aquatica is a brilliant family experience.

WHOOSH: The park features 43 slides, lagoons and rivers.

I’m wrapped in a towel on a lounger in the shade of a cabana, my mobile phone charging at my side, and the staff have taken my lunch order. I should think about heading back to the fun with my two boys, aged five and 12, and my water-loving husband, but this chance to relax is too good to miss.

Aquatica has a fabulous reputation for being the most fun water park in the United States, if not the world. The choice of rides can seem overwhelming and it takes a while to familiarise yourself with the layout of the park. But when you do, there is something for everyone.


Siam Park features ten themed rides, a lazy river, a wave pool, rapids and a beach

Love the beach? There is a stretch of sand the size of Trafalgar Square dotted with loungers facing two wave pools called Cutback Cove and Big Surf Shores.


Butlin’s at Bognor Regis has launched Splash, a new £40 million swimming complex that boasts the world’s first helter-skelter water slide (as high as two double deckers)

Younger visitors will race to Walkabout Waters, a brightly coloured expanse of bridges, towers, slides, tubes and wading pool, and Kata’s Kookaburra Cove, with its water spouts, inflatable tubes and a body slide. Ever-present lifeguards reassure nervous parents, while life jackets are available for everyone.

My top attraction was Dolphin Plunge, an enclosed slide through a pool full of Commerson’s dolphins. It’s tempting to keep your eyes shut, but don’t or you’ll miss them playing.

The boys’ go-to ride was Roa’s Rapids, a fast-flowing river loop where the water is about 3ft deep. There was no queue and no stairs, and the only difficult part was actually getting out (don’t be surprised if you find yourself going around a few extra times).
