Our summer holiday in August coincides with my daughter's birthday so it has become a tradition to go to a water park on her big day. We are not naive - we expect any water park to be busy in August. Aqualand however was probably the worst experience we have had in the last 3 years (so the adults think... More

great for children under 10, but only a few rides to go on for teens and adults if u are willing to wait for an hour amongst the masses. guess we are spoilt from having visited other excellent water parks in. We arrived 15 minutes before opening and still waited for an hour to get tickets as couldn't print at... More

Basically one of many water parks owned by Aqualand throughout France and Spain. The rides vary from tame to extreme although I have noticed this year that the most extreme ride has been taken out. There is a great selection to choose from and something for people of all ages or abilities. As with many places like this the rides... More

Decided to avoid going the previous day when the temperature was 37°C and so went when it was overcast and 23°C. Turned out to be a good decision as the place was virtually empty. Stayed until closing and went on every ride loads of times without more than a handful of people, if any, in any queue. Great fun. Paid... More

My girlfriend and I went here whilst touring France with a tent and a car. It looked such fun. When we saw the price we was shocked. Around 70 euros for the two of us. My girlfriend really wanted to go and it was a very hot day so I thought what the hell. Big big mistake. The queue to... More

We spent one day here - 2 adults and 2 children (aged 6 and 2), it cost over €70 for us all, and they even charged our 2 year old €10 even though he was just about the entry height!! It was a bad experience, firstly if you weren't over 110/125cm tall you were very limited on what you could... More

This place is pretty expensive, it's 25 euros entrance, then you also have to fork out if you want sun loungers, lockers etc. To be honest there were 6 of us & we were not sure on how many lockers to get, we got 1 between 2 when you can easily fit twice as much in, so I would say... More

€193 to get in (4 adults 4 kids), €60 for 3 burgers and 1 large pizza - what a rip off ! The worst thing was having to pay adult prices for a 9 yr and 10 yr old because they were just over 140cms tall. And yes they will make your kids stand next to a height chart when... More
