The Aqua Natura Benidorm waterpark, designed in a Greek Island theme, has a great range of slides from family favourites suitable for all ages, to exciting ones for the thrill seekers.
The wave pool
You’ll have a splashtastic time in Aqua Natura Benidorm as you race each other down the Multipista and ride the waves of Zorba’s Beach wave pool. The pool, a massive 5,000 square metres in area, is overlooked by waterfalls and geysers, and has plenty of space for bathing and swimming, although brace yourself for the next series of waves! At the height of summer, it’s the perfect way to cool off and refresh yourself. As always, just remember to apply sun cream regularly, especially in the early afternoon when the sun is at its hottest.
Feeling a bit more daring? Head for La Cresta, where you’ll get to experience the sensation of zero gravity just like an astronaut. Hop onto a rubber ring and down the 15-metre tube slide, after which you’ll shoot high up into the air, landing back on a huge bumpy slide, before splashing into the pool waiting for you below. If you want a bit of a break away from the busy park, there is also a spa area located near the sun loungers, with two large whirlpools for you to relax in.
The Zigzag Giant Slide
Another adrenaline-pumping water chute, the Zigzag Giant Slide, is 105 metres long and finishes in a separate zone from the wave pool. Whiz down the U-shaped chute until you splash to the finishing point.
The Black Hole
Zoom down this 1.40-metre diameter tubular chute, where you’ll ride for more than 100 metres until you plunge straight into the black hole of water. This ride even includes special strobe lighting, and should satisfy even the most ambitious thrill seekers when you burst into the water at what will seem like lightning speed!
Challenge your friends or family down this exciting U-shaped slide, where you’ll zoom 50 metres to the bottom.
The Sea Lions
Every day, Aqua Natura Benidorm holds special sea lion demonstrations, where you’ll be able to learn about the lifestyles and habitats of these fascinating creatures and interact with them.
Great for children too
Aqua Natura is great fun for everyone, but kids especially will love this one as there are many things to do. They’ve got their own splash area with a water castle, complete with bridges, catwalks, and slides. One of the favourites is the big bucket, which slowly fills with water before tipping out litres of it. Look out for the smiles on your little ones’ faces as the water pours over their heads; it’s a perfect photo for the album!
Have a bite to eat at the Aqua Natura restaurant, or feel free to bring your own food and eat at the dedicated picnic area.
You can book tickets to Aqua Natura Benidorm online or at the park itself, although it may be a lot cheaper to book online in advance, and will also mean you dodge those queues.
