“great waterpark for big and small kids!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

we stayed in mataro so the park is only 3 stops on the train, 10 mins, and a free bus ride, 5 mins away!
although it was busy we didn't queue to get in. plenty of lockers to leave your belongings and the longest queue was 20 mins but some rides you only waited 5!!
there was a few food outlets, the usual, burgers, pizza and icecream but good.
most people took a picnic and there was tonnes of picnic tables.
we had a fantastic day out and my 7 yr old could go on all the rides! there was plenty for daredevils and younger children alike.
all in all a great day out and great value!!

“Excellent time just a short train/bus ride from Barcelona centre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

This is very good water park, very easily accessible from Barcelona even without a car. If traveling with public transport, make sure you purchase combined ticket that entitles you for both return ride and entrance to the water park. (a shuttle bus is available between trains station and the park). Of course, week-day is preferable. There are plenty of rides, some of them suitable for young kids (5yrs) too. Also enough pools of all possible depths. Perfect time spending in hot summer day.

“A Shambles”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

My friends and I visited this water park en route to the airport at the end of our holiday, to kill some time before our flight. We booked our tickets ahead of arrival, which I would highly recommend if you do go as it appears that even during a week day at peak season there are enormous queues to get in. So having booked in advance we sailed right through the entrance. First stop, the lockers. We queued at the first set of lockers closest to the entrance, only to be told after 5 minutes that they were full and we needed to go to a different set across the park. We queued at the other set across the park for much longer, the queue being enormous, only to be told as we neared the front, that they were full and we needed to go back to where we started! If they were nearly full - why didn't they tell the people queuing at the appropriate point, rather than let us stand waiting for nothing! So eventually at the furthest point across the park we found some available lockers, which we could hire for something outrageous like 6€. By this time we needed lunch, so we visited one of the snack-hut-type-venues that we had passed in our search for lockers. I can honestly say I have never experience such incompetence. Baring in mind that we were almost at the front of the queue when we arrived, we waited half an hour for our full meal to be composed, and I am not exaggerating, at a place that serves only burgers and hotdogs. You would think that at lunch time, when facing an enormous queue of hungry customers, they would have a constant supply of hot dogs and burgers on the go. They were dealing with one order at a time, and by that I mean cooking the dogs for one customer, and then serving them. Next order, cook one hot dog, serve it. Why not review all orders, and cook what your machine has the capacity to? Beyond infuriating. The park was overcrowded, everything is over-priced for what it is, the queues for the rides are astonishing - we joined an enormous queue for just the rubber rings for a ride, before joining the queue for the actual ride itself! Oh, and the showers in the changing room are freezing cold. Not just cold, freezing. Appalling - would never, ever return.

“Nice waterpark needs an upgrade”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

Lovely water park, excluding the untidy and dirty BBQ area. Good amount of rides and not that overcrowded so you can try all the rides twice in a full day at least. Good selection of restaurants and bars, but the place lacks the lustre of a fantasy island as the name suggests, and needs an upgrade.

“Water Park for friends”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

Located at Premià de Mar (about 40 minutes by train from Barcelona) you can buy the ticket at the Sants Station or any other train station (not metro, you should look for the RENFE or CERCANIAS train stations) for 24 € (that includes return ticket from Barcelona, the shuttle bus from Premià de Mar train station and the entrance).

The water park has a lot of slides to thw whole family including a wave pool that runs every 15 minutes, they also have a kids zone, that even the olders will love.

They have a Picnic zone, because they allow you to bring your own food, which is good as their food stands and restaurants are quiet expensive.

We had a lot of fun and we will return there as soon we can. The opening season, if I am not mistaken is from June to September.
