Aphrodith's Baths: An adults only pool with relaxing jets and bubble benches.

Apollo's Plunge: An open flumed family slide suitable for all ages. Up to three riders twist and turn on a huge raft with a big splash into the pool below.

Aeolos Whirlpool: A body slide that will propel you along a serpentine slide until you suddenly reach the global flume which will send you spinning round and round until you land in the pool below.

Atlantis Activity Pool: On this attraction one has to battle their way across water pads and rolling logs, without falling down into the swimming pool; separate zones for adults and children.

Chariot Chase: Try this four man race and see who is the fastest down the 70 meter long multi-slide.

Danaides Waterworks: Children's Playground with various attractions, tipping buckets, geezers, water guns and games.

Drop To Atlantis: This is the only slide of its kind in the world. Experience the sound and light effects inside the 3 man bullet which sends you speeding down the slide encountering the various drops and turns before splashing in the pool below.

Minotaur's Labyrinth (The Big Wet Bubble): Consists of a large play splash pool for kids. The children have to climb their way up the wet and slippery bubble but once they reach the top they can slide right back down again.

Good but a lot of the slides were closed. Expensive to get into the water park and we couldn't have a group rate for some reason. Lockers should be cheaper too.

Downside however is the price of the ticket to get in. TOTAL RIP OFF. Why on earth they are charging 38 euros per adult I do... More

Spent a day here the day before it closed for winter. There was already a queue for pre-paid tickets (which gives you a discount and free drink - buy through website) but not long and there were plenty of sunbeds to leave your stuff. Lockers are available to put valuables. Not my kind of place in height of season but... More

We visited the park when it was quiet and got round everything in an hour. Kids loved it some really good slides. If you go at the time of year no need to get there early. Would say it's a little over priced and would recommend to the own butties but think all parks are the same.
