Siam Park is a water park in Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain. The park is located on the TF1 highway in Costa Adeje near Playa de Las Americas, a tourist resort that we visited back in 2011.
The park combines pumping water rides and spectacular scenery, a water kingdom and beach club for the whole family making it year after year the best water park in the world. In 2013 CNN chose Siam Park as the world’s best water park. 2015 Siam Park again topped the Traveler’s Choice awards from Trip Advisor. These international recognition is well deserved is due to Siam Park’s Thai decor on all of its rides, park buildings, and restaurants granted to the park’s designer, Christoph Kiessling, by the Thai royal family.
The Tower of Power is the scariest water park ride in the Park. You climb up and up and up until you reach this small platform, from where there is an almost vertical 76 metre drop. Then the ride shoots you through a transparent tunnel through a giant aquarium of sharks, before you end on the other side. But thrill seeking adventurers also love Vulcano: a four-person ProSlide Behemoth Bowl slide with a laser inside which produces a flashing image of a dragon and The Dragon ride itself, where you can take 3 friends with you on raft and enjoy a daring ride as you hurtle down the flume into the dragon’s drum in a gravity defying experience. We also loved Mai Thai River, the world’s longest lazy river, which also has the highest elevation of any lazy river at 8 meters (26 ft) and the wave pool and beach, where every time you here a siren (more like a tornado warning) that means that the wave pool is going to start. It’s a bit scary at first but really fun after a while.
The park opened a new kids area called Sawasdee in 2012 and an amazing slide 200 meter mega slide called Kinnaree. The fun starts 25 metres above ground with a speedy adrenaline rush as you enter the tilted funnel. Then you continue the tour through lush vegetation and idyllic views to slide rapidly, riding the wave through the thrilling corners and curves like no other water slide in the world.
In 2015 the park opened a new word class ride Singha, a waterslide with four funnels with a speed of 18 meters per second.
We found Siam Park a fantastic day out but a little pricey.We paid 33 euros each (there was two of us) and then had to pay a further 8 just for a locker (you get 5 back when you hand your key back). The price included a free bus from the Hotel at Las Americas (there is also one for Los Cristianos). There is also a twin ticket (Siam Park and Loro Parque) for 60 euros which includes transport to and from Loro Parque. We went in the end of July 2011 and the park was very crowded. Took almost an hour to get the bus back. Apart from that small inconvenience this was by far the best water park I’ve ever visited, including all Florida contenders.
Just one final piece of advice: take solar protection. Lot’s of it. Canarian sun can be merciless!. Then grab your swimming trunks, bikinis and towels -and head-off to the wonderful world of Siam Park. You’ll have the time of your life!.
