Visited on Wed, 12th Oct. It was amazing. Great weather the park was not very busy and no queues at any rides. Most we waited for the big wave(best ride by far) was 5 mins. Most of the staff were friendly helpful and funny. Some clearly needed a holiday!
A great day out and well worth the entrance fee.

A wet warm rainy day so went to the water park as we were going to be wet anyway! Paid £63 for 3 teenagers and left them. Got a call 20 minutes later saying the power was off and none of the slides were working and it was going to be an hour or two before they would work so we went back to get them. During the hour that they were there they could go on nothing. Park refused a refund and tried to claim we were asking for a refund due to the rain. This was not the case - it was because nothing was working. Unreasonable - I found it really disappointing that the manager lied and said everything had been working when clearly a lot of things were still off. I try to resolve disputes rather than write adverse reviews but this one could not be resolved. Clearly a water park that does not seek repeat visits. It would have been good if any of the slides were working.

Dear Russel,
We are sorry for any inconvenience. Indeed the public power failed, twice, and meanwhile our power generators gave the backup, but we can guarantee that all happen maximum within 10 minutes. No one could tell that the slides were going to work in an hour or two because the problem source was outside the park. Only the Big Wave had to close between 11:30am and 2pm, for safety reasons due to the weather. In low season, a few rides close for an hour due to staff turnover, the schedule is properly announced in each one. We are sorry but we have to defend the park from what you are accusing us, in our regulation we don´t refund because of climate situation neither power failure in which we are unrelated.
We are sorry for this misunderstood.
Kind regards, the Management.

Had an absolute blast, it was 39 per adult and kids are about 20ish euro but well worth. I would recommend bringing sweets and drinks with you beforehand as the food choices are quite limited. It’s suits kids of all ages. Highly recommend it

Came here in August 2018 - whilst staying in Manta Rota and we caught the coach to the park which is about an hours drive.

Upon arrival, we had pre booked tickets at the hut on the square in Manta Rota which meant we didn’t have to queue, and we just went on the rides.

Some of the rides were a bit tame - especially due to the time we waited - but I’m not sure if you had no queues if you would call them tame or if they were simply just not worth the time waiting

The food is lovely and is good value for money (€5 for a hotdog, chips & a drink)

Out of prime season, but a fantastic day out. Staff are friendly, place is clean and tidy and there’s something for everyone. Some of the rides are a little confusing at first to how you ride them, but genuinely a good day out. I can see how they make their money with extra charges for sun-beds, lockers and parasols. But overall for out of season it was a good day out.
