Visit Siam Park
Siam Park in Tenerife is one of the top water parks in the world. It is found in Adeje near to the popular resort of Playa de las Americas on the south west coast of Tenerife in the Canary Islands.
Explore Siam Park
Siam Park has been voted the top water park in the world for several years in a row. It opened in 2008 and goes from strength to strength. The park extends over 185 000 m² and has a range of water rides from relaxing to high adrenaline and everything in between.
The park has an oriental style and all the buildings and landscaping have been designed in an oriental theme. In fact Siam Park has the largest number of buildings with a Thai style outside of Thailand and the park was opened by the Princess of Thailand.
Siam Park has lots of different rides with three different types of experiences. Whether you are looking to relax, enjoy some family fun or get an adrenaline high there are lots of rides to choose from.
For some relaxation you can enjoy a leisurely float down the Mai Thai river, which is one of the longest 'lazy river' rides in the world. Floating along the river on your tire is a good way to explore the park and its lush scenery and to relax after the high adrenaline rides. The river winds through the heart of the park and even goes through a large aquarium of tropical fish.
Alternatively head to Siam Beach. This huge sandy beach is surrounded by loungers to allow you to relax and enjoy the sunshine. Alternatively enjoy the large wave pool, the Palace of Waves, whose waves are large enough for surfing!
Other opportunites to relax include the Sea Lion Island where you can watch the sea-lions or the Floating Market where you can enjoy the shops and cafes in this lovely Thai-themed village on the water.
If you are looking to go upmarket then head for the Champagne Club where you can rent one of the Balinese beds and enjoy a bottle of champagne. If you are looking for something a little more exclusive you can book a VIP villa for the day. In the villa hammocks, sofas, showers and tv and each can accommodate 8 people. These need to be booked in advance.
There are lots of rides you can enjoy as a family. The Naga Racer is a six lane water toboggon where you can race each other to the splash pool at the bottom. The Jungle Snake ride has four differen routes through the park and is a fast ride sometimes in a tube and sometimes in the open. Wave Palace at Siam Beach has the largest artificial waves in the world rising up to 3 meters and is great for families. If you wish to surf you need to book in advance.
The Giant will have you sliding round and round as you ride down the giant funnel. If you are travelling with young children then the Sawasdee area has grown up rides in childrens sizes and the Lost City is a great childrens play area in the water with towers, bridges, slides and cascades.
Looking for some thrills whilst you are at Siam Park then head for the adrenaline boosting rides. Try the speed of the Kinnarree which is a 200 meter fast slide and funnel or attempt to get through the Mekong Rapids on an inflatable boat. The Dragon has a totally vertical drop down its funnel and the Tower of Power slide is a huge 28 meters tall and will have you reaching speeds of 80 km/h as you descend! At the bottom you slide through an aquarium of sharks and rays.
For something a little different The Volcano has you sliding in the dark before reaching the heart of the volcano where a light show entertains you as you accelarate through. The Patong Rapids is a fairly new ride with a fast slide through rapids which passes through total darkness and also some great views over the ocean. Another fairly new ride is the Singha, a water roller coaster with twists and turns and the fastest speeds recorded for a water park.
