A great day out, kids 9&11 had a great time. Plenty of slides, something for everyone. From previous reviews I expected longer wait times for the slides and food but was pleasantly surprised. We waited around 10 mins for food. Locker and parasol £15 euros + a 10 euro refundable deposit.

Incredible experience, you have to go early to take advantage of the day because of the huge queues at the attractions. It is recommended to go during the week, since there are still many people and cars to get in and out. Otherwise unbeatable.

We were treated very well, the captain very skillful. We are very satisfied with the activity.

Excellent park to spend a fun day with the family. I recommend it 100%

It was great, our guide was nice and he drove the boat perfectly!
