Majorca has everything. Stunning scenery, fantastic resorts, golden sandy beaches and most importantly adrenaline rushing water parks, providing hours of fun. Dotted around the island, there are three waterparks in Majorca. Western Water Park, Aqualand and Hidropark, as well as six inflatable water parks in different resorts.
Western Water Park – Magaluf
Located in Magaluf, the Western Water Park is Majorca’s most popular water park offering fun for all ages. Inspired by the Wild West, the park consists of three areas: Western Land, Indian Town and El Paso. When visiting this part of the island, it’s worth spending a day here. With the tallest slide on the island, named The Beast, it sets the tone for all you thrill seekers! An almost vertical drop of nearly 100 feet means only the bravest experience the thrill of the 11th highest water slide in the world, do you dare? The Beast is also joined by three other slides, which will seem like a warm-up for the big one! Who doesn’t love a good race against each other? Well, the Crazy Horses offers lots of fun for you speed lovers as you grab your mat and slide down the 40-metre track. So, make sure you start well because if you do, you’ll claim the bragging rights as you hit the water first. The iconic half-pipe boomerang always proves to be a favourite. Make sure you’re holding onto the rubber dingy tightly as you’ll be pushed over the edge onto the wet surface. You can enjoy this ride alone or with your friends, if you also ask nicely and fancy daring yourself, you can reverse drop!
There is also the Tornado, all you can hear is the echo of people’s screams as they are pushed into the abyss. For something gentle take a ride of the Tijuana Twins, perfect for prepping yourself for The Beast! The Cola Del Diablo is a set of four slides with two fantastic speed slides. If you’re looking for family fun, then Western Water Park has plenty of that. Make a splash in the wave pool or plunge yourself into darkness with the Big Hole, so who knows when you’ll come out the other side? Allow the kids to run free in the kids’ world. With slides, waterfalls and plenty of water, the younger ones will be in for endless hours of fun. The colourful La Ponderosa is a great space designed for a splash, while Coyote Park is a mini theme park where they can race down a much smaller version of the Crazy Horses. The wild river is perfect for chilling out and relaxing, so the name comes across very misleading! Watch the world turn as you relax and let the current take you around the park. If relaxing in the wild river isn’t enough then head to the Bath House for the ultimate chill-out session.
Aqualand – El Arenal
As the biggest of all the waterparks in Majorca, there’s plenty of fun for the whole family at Aqualand El Arenal. With 12 waterslides to choose from you’ll be spoilt for choice as to which one’ll be setting your pulse racing first! State-of-the-art attractions that combine big slopes and sharp turns to make the ultimate slides. Named after one of the deadliest snakes in the world, the King Cobra really is a spectacle. Slither your way through the snake’s skin on a rubber dingy as you plunge into a boomerang-like slide where you will be swallowed up into the cobra’s mouth, with its fangs pouring out water. Another slide that’s based on a deadly snake is the Anaconda. Sporting the same theme as the King Cobra, the Anaconda slide is created excellently to look like a snake’s skin. Enjoy plenty of twists and turns on your fast run down where you’ll eventually drop out of the Anaconda’s mouth and make a splash in the blue water.
If you prefer to take things a little easier, then Banzai offer something unique, as you fly on water! Grab your mat and shoot down the green-themed slide as you bounce off the water on your mat before eventually coming to a stop. Four individual slides make up the Kamikaze. Reaching high speeds, you’ll feel the Mediterranean breeze rushing alongside. You won’t be going down this slide feet first though. So, grab a mat and slide down head first! There’s also the Fórmula Race, where you’ll slide down a rubber dingy. Perfect for sharing with friends or kids. On the Tornado, you’ll shoot down a black hole into a bowl which will send you in a daze as you spin round, eventually falling into the water below. The Black Hole and Devil’s Tail see you confront the unknown as you speed down the two slides in complete darkness.
The Crazy Race is for the lovers of speed and those of you who fancy a bit of competition when slipping and sliding in the waterparks. The rapids also always prove to be a big hit. Aqualand El Arenal has a fantastic choice of slides and attractions to keep the younger ones occupied for hours. Adventureland has 12 slides of all types to give kids the best experience, offering that same buzz adults get! Swim with a giant dragon in Dragonland and make the most of those slides on offer. With a popular whirlpool on offer, you can take a well-deserved break in the bubble pool after the exhilaration of the adrenaline slides. There’s also the Congo River where you can lounge on a rubber dingy and work on topping up your tan.
Hidropark – Alcúdia
Hidropark is the only waterpark in the north of Majorca, sitting just behind the beach in Port d’Alcúdia. Hidropark is the smallest of the three water parks but don’t let that put you off! As well as a choice of water attractions for the whole family, you can tuck into a light meal at the restaurant or enjoy a freshly grilled burger on the barbecue in the sun.
The most exhilarating slide on offer at Hidropark is the Kamikaze. Shoot down either of the two 15-metre-high slides as you crash into the water at high speeds. One of the favourite slides is the Line & Line. Reach high speeds with many twists and turns as you plunge down into the water waiting for you at the bottom. The Soft Track offers plenty of fun and is something a bit different. With the ride offering a sponge cushioning, you decide how you want to go down the slide. So, fly down on your stomach, knees or back. Race against your family and friends on the Slice Race. The six-coloured slides are perfect for bringing out the competitive side in you as you try to hit the water first.
The kids will love Hidropark as they enjoy the minipark and children’s world. There is also the wave pool, which always proves to be a favourite. Have a go at walking on water in the floating water balls, these are sure to offer laughter, and are much harder to master than you would expect! With the Mediterranean sun beating down, dry off after a long day in the water with Hidropark’s crazy golf course. With 54 holes, you can pick from three coloured routes offering the normal 18-hole course.
The inflatable waterparks guarantee fun. With seven in total located around Majorca, you’ll be bound to find one on your travels. So, strap on your life jacket and enjoy the inflatables as you bounce around.
Shoot down the slides into the sea, tackle the obstacles alongside your friends or bounce on the trampoline. Run, jump, swing, dive and bounce your way around the course knowing that at some point you’ll land on something soft or make a splash in the water.
Anchored to the sea bed around 25 metres from the shore, the inflatable water parks provide an hour session of pure fun. There are five on the island ran by Aqua Arena – Palma Nova, Peguera, Portals Nous, Can Picafort and Magaluf. The second company to run inflatable water parks is MarAventura; these have two on the island in Playa de Muro and Puerto Pollensa. Fun for all ages, kids as young as four are welcome, as long as they’re accompanied by an adult.
There is no booking required for the inflatables but each slot starts on the hour so make sure you arrive within good time as you don’t want to be missing out on valuable playing time.
