My friends and I visited the Dedeman Aquapark whilst on holiday in Turkey.
It wasn't as big as other Aqua parks we had visited; Corfu for example but was still fun.
I didn't go on any flumes this time but my friends did and had nothing bad to report. They said they had a variation of kamikaze slides for the thrill seekers, other flumes which were exciting and fun but not quite so ‘scary’ and fun group rides where four people could ride on one massive dingy.
My favourite part was the wave pool – the waves were good fun and they have plenty of floats for everyone. Just a shame it only comes on for roughly 2-3 mins every half an hour.
Whilst in the Aqua Park you can’t use any currency and have to ‘charge’ up a card.
To begin with we thought this would be a massive inconvenience but it turned out to be a really good idea and it meant that you didn’t have to keep a constant eye on your bags for fear of having your money stolen as it was safely stowed away in a free locker. My partner and I both put 30 Lira on our cards and that was plenty of money – it covered two lots of drinks, magnum ice lollies and food. After all of that we still had a few lira to get refunded to us afterwards.
The only problem we had with our visit which doesn’t actually have anything to do with the Dedeman Aquapark was our transport.
We had booked our visit on the internet whilst in England prior to our arrival and everything should’ve gone smoothly however the driver of the mini bus who was supposed to take us home threw a strop outside the park saying that he wouldn’t take us back to our hotel.
A very helpful lady who worked at the aqua park was being a translator for us and finally got everything sorted with the driver – or so we thought until he dumped us in the middle of town outside the agency we had booked with.
The agency staff weren’t best pleased and arranged for a taxi to take us back to our hotel free of charge.
Just something to bear in mind and be careful of whilst making a booking.
