Summer is here again -and Tenerife is being engulfed with families from all over the world -and where will most of them be heading for…the incredible Siam Park -recently acclaimed as “The Best Water Park in the World”. With rides like the ‘Naga Racer’, a 6-lane slide, where half-a-dozen people race their way down to the bottom, before being catapulted into the safety pool -or the ‘Tower of Power ‘, an almost vertical transparent slide, which turns into a tube at the base, as riders are whizzed through a pool full of man-eating sharks, one can be assured that there will be lots of joyful screaming going on!
Based on a Siamese theme, Siam park is the world’s first Green water park, which was opened by Her Royal Highness, the Princess of ThailandMaha Chakri Sirindhorn. For the more discerning water-park enthusiast there is always the Mai Thai River -the longest ‘Lazy River’ on the planet, where one can simply relax on their own personal rubber ring -and gently glide all their troubles away -or for the more adventurous water-baby there is the ‘Wave Palace’ -a wave pool which conjures-up a volley of gigantic 3-metre waves -which, incidentally, is higher than any other wave pool in the world. Apart from all the aforementioned rides, there is also ‘The Dragon’ and ‘The Vulcano’, ‘The Giant’, ‘Kinnaree’, and the ‘Jungle Snakes’, the ‘Lost City’ and the ‘Mekonng Rapids’ to enjoy to your hearts content -so grab your swimming trunks, bikinis and towels -and head-off to the wonderful world of Siam Park.
