Best water parks to visit in Europe

As the summer temperature begins to rise, we can think of nothing better than spending a day indulging in all the activities that water parks have to offer, and some of the world’s best are in Europe. Relaxing by the pool and touching up your tan, jumping into the the cool water when the sun becomes just a little too hot, or pushing your limits and enjoying extreme water slides and water activities— we can’t think of a better way to spend a few days of vacation!

1. Siam Park, Tenerife, Spain


Siam Park, which opened its doors in 2008, is located in the Adeje region of Tenerife and is one of the most famous water parks in Europe. The park has a Thai theme and boasts the longest lazy river in Mai Thai.

Volcano and dragon style water slides are plentiful, but the most prominent attraction is probably the Tower of Power. This slide has an 85-foot drop, and if that isn’t scary enough, when you reach the bottom there is a tunnel that sends you through a tank of sharks.
