Terra Natura lies in another vast area of mountainside next to its better known neighbour, Terra Mitica. Although the theme park has over 700 metres of water slides it is essentially an animal park divided according to continent. Each continent sector is home to the animals, people and vegetation native to it. You’ll even find typical dishes of the region in that sector’s restaurants. It’s a good idea to pre-order tickets and download them to your mobile phone before travelling.
It’s a fabulous day out for children who see Terra Natura as a theme park whilst gaining great educational value from the visit as they learn about new continents. They can marvel at their surroundings in total security as the park has been cleverly built so that you can wander very close to the animals without being in any danger.
Within each sector there are a selection of interesting shows and rides. You can take a train ride around the park or for the more adventurous take a Tarzan like trip over the elephant enclosure on a zip wire. And if you survive how about going swimming with baby sharks!
For many parents the water park is a highlight of the day as you can escape the temperatures you’ve experienced in the safari park area as you settle down on a sunbed in the water park after lunch. Located next to an enormous lake sized swimming pool, the water slides and the children’s play area this a great spot to relax where you can still keep an eye on the kids.
Terra Natura is a truly excellent family day out.
