What people are saying
It may be good for families with young children
Jun 2019
I don't know if it's poor construction or poor maintenance, but the slides are painful. We went there yesterday, and I still have difficulty walking because the backs of my heels are bruised, my shoulder blades are bruised and my coccyx is not only bruised but the skin over it has been abraded to the point that it's leaking cytoplasm and crusting over. On almost every slide, almost every section is slightly higher than the previous section: thump, thump, thump as you slide down. Hence the damage outlined above. Secondly, the park was nearly empty, yet on a couple of slides, there were very long waiting times for very short queues. What's that about? On the plus side, the staff were great (despite my appalling Italian!), the main swimming pool is brilliant and the areas for small children look wonderful: pirate ships, fountains, tippy buckets and barrels, gentle (one-piece) slides, waterfalls and shallow paddling pools. I sincerely believe that young kids will love this place, teenagers, less so. Finally, and full marks to Splash! on this, there are a *lot* of lifeguards/staff watching out for the visitors: most slides have at least two staff (one at the top and one at the bottom), When we were in the main swimming pool, there were two lifeguards up on high chairs and a third walking round to pool just to make sure. However, given how long it took the member of staff gossiping not three metres away to acknowledge our existence... I'm not entirely confident that the goodly number of staff equates to reliable safety. Also, it's surprisingly expensive. Nothing, in and of itself, is expensive, but everything is charged for: 2€ here, 8€ there and so on. It really does add up.

Break from the beach
Jul 2019 • Family
We went on a tuesday and bought a family ticket. 36 euro for 2 adults and a 6 year old. Strange tge price is tge same but many things she cannot go on although atother parks she could. Whilst limited food was reasonably priced if you want to snack. 2 or 3 rides were closed and some things closed intermittently during the day particularly around lunch.

Unexpected fun
Jul 2018 • Family
We have been there because it was a windy day and the beach was uncomfortable: I did not expect a great experience because normally we do not like this kind of activity. Instead it was a good fun all day: not so much cue at the slides, lot of shade, various extras and superfriendly staff. Amazingly also the restaurant was good quality at a reasonable price.

Family fun at affordable prices
Jul 2018 • Family
Easy to reach, just outside Gallipoli, well signposted. Parking €2, entry €12/person. Tuesday & Friday are family days when entry is €10/person only.
They don’t have the spectacular rides like in the States or Tenerife, but there are enough for the whole family. Some loungers are free, for more privacy you can rent 2 loungers and 1 umbrella for €8. There is a big pool to cool down, twice a day they offer aqua aerobics. In the middle of the park there is a kind of a disco area where there is music on all day. From 20:30 to 2am there are late night events while the park closes regularly for the day shift at 18:30.

Family fun
Jul 2018 • Family
Our kids (10, 12) loved it! It wasn’t that full, so we could get a parking spot (2€) in front of the aqua park. We didn’t know that we had to pay for the sunbed, but when the staff noticed it, they were relaxed and told us where to find sunbeds for free. The queues for the slides were short and we never had to wait longer than three minutes. It all felt safe. The food was fair-priced (4,9€ for a grilled chicken). It would have been great to have some more shade. We were a bit surprised that they already close at 18:00. When leaving, we watched all the partying people from the area having fun with the DJ and the dancers. Great day, worth 12€ per person.

Exactly what you'd expect
Aug 2017
When we went all the slides were open. The place was busy but not too overrun. Plenty of sun beds to hire. Food options were fine for this sort of place. Toilets and the park were kept clean and tidy. One of the best water parks we've been too. Nice feel to the place despite the, sometimes, very load music. Felt like there were lots of staff around and the place was well run.

Fun for kids, foto service a let down
Aug 2016 • Family
We spent the whole day at the park the kids had a great time, sun bed in shade was great. I ordered pictures to be printed (we got those immediately) and the pictures would also be sent to my email address (I paid 2 euro each extra for that) they said the pictures would be sent after the park closed we are still waiting for the pictures..... Other than that good day at park

Not for the the water sliders
Aug 2016 • Family
Half the slides were broken and most of the slides that are not broken are very small and not challenging the pool was busy and the sun beds cost money along with the lockers and parking the atmosphere was amazing with loud Italian and English music
