Aqualandia is reputedly Europe’s largest water park standing behind the northern end of Playa Levante right next to Mundomar. There’s a great range of attractions within the park such as the huge Atlantic wave pool, the springboards of Laguna, the beach and caves of Niagara and Adventureland which has been developed specially for young children. There are also plenty high adrenaline rides with scarey names such as Kamikaze and Black Hole as well as Big Bang which is Europe’s highest chute ride. During the peak season you’ll have to queue for slides. You can purchase Aqualandia tickets online and print them out at home before travelling.
Aqualandia is a must for fans of water slides but is also great for all the family and it is very easy to spend a full day there. Do be aware however that the water in the slides is saltwater and not fresh water and although this is not a problem for many people it can be very uncomfortable for others.
The food inside the park is expensive like most theme parks but there are plenty of picnic areas so you can take your own good and drink. There are also lots of sunbeds in lovely landscaped surroundings for you to use when you want to take a break from the water and just relax.
Once inside you can rent lockers for the day to keep any valuables safe and you can also rent large rubber rings to take on the slides. Be aware that you have to pay for these on top of the already hefty entrance fee so it is worth looking out for some cheap offers in Benidorm. If you go to Mundomar then you will receive a discount ticket for Aqualandia.
Alicante Airport Car Hire
If you don’t want to spend a whole day in a water park you can combine a trip here with Mundomar, a nature park with dolphins, sea lions and other aquatic and non-aquatic animals. They are right next door to each other and you can usually buy a good value combination ticket allowing you to visit both parks.
Alternatively you might choose to visit Terra Natura where there are also some waterslides as well as the animal park which is the main theme. However, you won’t find the same range of slides as you will at Aqualandia.
