It's not got masses of slides but is still a really good fun day out, and benefits from being well run, clean, attractive and quite relaxed. Best for those seeking repeated fun slides and smiles rather than massive ones.

Main points are:

- main group of 8 slides as you face them entered via the same staircase but with 2 platforms. Top one is for 2 fast kamikazee slides (but not too steep or fast as these things go) and 2 windy slow anaconda slides, one mostly open the other enclosed for stretches. You can almost get stuck in those in places! From the lower platform you access a choice of 4 'surfer hill slides' - medium fast with bumps, all much the same but one ('viper') is enclosed.

- no age or height limits stated for the above slides, just need to be a swimmer (of any ability - exit pool is not deep). Most the slides probably suit a confident age 6ish upwards, prob more often 10ish+ for the kamikazes

- the separate 'gin-co' slide has 5 side by side lanes that go straight down with some bumps. Good fun, not really fast. You can choose to go down on a single or double ring (separate Q for those) or go down with a mat or nothing. 1 metre minimum height. Nicely themed sensory entry to the slide too

- big pool has a medium wave machine that doesn't run that often - seemed hourly but with a gap in early afternoon. Aquarobics now and then too. It's quite deep at the end so watch out for young kids/weak swimmers

- staff manage things well and safely

- there's a kids pool with a few slides and splashy fun

- a 'sensory' pool has a mix of shallow and deeper swimable area with water jets and waterfalls etc

- you pay extra for hot tubs 2e for 15 mins

- Entry is 21euro for age 12-69, 17e for age 3-11 and free for less than 3 or 70+

- free parking on the left as you approached the entrance a couple of minutes walk) or 3e to be in the shade in the car park that adjoins the entrance

-it's a bit hard to find and not well signed. Plan in advance or google map it.

- you pay for lockers and sun beds once in the park at the 'bazar' - a small bamboo roofed kiosk at the edge of the main pool that also sells inflatables. It's 4e for a safety deposit box underneath a bamboo umbrella with 4 chairs. Bigger lockers and are also charged and by the entrance and changing rooms and showers

- food and drink options/prices are better than expected! Various burgers and meal options cost around 4-7 euro, but water is cheap and coffee a bargain at 1.20! Also nice plates of fruit and yoghurt from a drinks kiosk towards the entrance

- a very nice picnic area too with tables shaded under trees to the side of the main slides group

We didn't know what too expect as we are from North America where there are many huge water parks. We had been traveling in Rome and Paris in July and early August and my three children aged 9 and 10 desperately wanted a swimming pool. We decided to give this place a trend we're glad we did! From the outside you can only see a water slide do we didn't know what was there. We arrived at 3 pm and the park closed at 6. They had a discounted rate which was still high for just 3 hours but decided to go in. I was traveling with 4 adults and 3 children. Inside the park there is an area for smaller children consisting of a large pool and splash area with buckets of water dropping on the children. Even my children had fun in the splash area. The children pool was too shallow and for toddlers so we did not venture there.
There are green lawn areas in the shade to escape the sun but be aware of the Mosquitos! The grounds of the park are cement and decorated with palm trees and you feel as though you are in a resort in the Carribean. Music is loud and Italian with some English speaking songs. There is a wave pool that is large and there is also a 7 slide water slide. Let's say that 2 of the slides are no for the faint of heart! My husband and 21 year old niece went down slides 4 and 5 not knowing what to expect and they were scared! So steep that they would not go on those ones again but I'd try the other 5 slides. My 10 son loved the steep slide and since the line was short for those slides kept riding them. Fantasticime was had, many plastic chairs and loungers to sit on. Snack bars available but I brought my own cooler with drinks and fruit.

Lockers available, showers available, bathrooms clean. Entire park was spotless.

My husband and I along with our 2 children aged 3 and 7 visited this park twice in the 2 weeks we spent in Tuscany.
The children had a marvellous time and so did we. The park is not huge which we liked as we didn't have to walk far between slides and pools and it also had a very cosy and friendly atmosphere.

My 3 year old is very brave and strong willed and previous parks we have visited in other countries she has been too small to go on the bigger slides. This time she was able to and must have gone on the kamikaze slide at least 5 times. She loved it and felt very grown up. The lifeguards were fabulous allowing her to ride but they also watched her all the way down the slide as well instead of remaining seated in their chairs as they did for the older ones.

There was a range of pools and slides to go on and all were good fun and no long queues.
Around the park there is plenty of shaded seating and relaxing areas which was very helpful as we managed to visit during a heatwave and the first time we went temperatures were over 40 degrees! My 3 year old has ginger hair and very fair skin so shade was vital to keep her from burning!
The staff were all very friendly and helpful.
Love this place and well worth a visit!

Arrived at 2:30pm for afternoon rate, open until 6:30 so plenty of time to enjoy the slides and 'new' pool areas. Pleasant surprise given some reviews, Friday quiet day. Food and drink reasonable price. Good afternoon visit from Siena 1 1/2hours.

Not too impressed by this place, went with my son for a few hours one afternoon during our holiday in Tuscany and had to endure a lot of queuing with plenty of loud Italian teenagers. The wave machine only worked sporadically as well. Stick to the beach, cheaper and more fun.

This was a great way to end a two week holiday in Tuscany. Our boys had patiently enjoyed the scenic delights of the hill towns near Siena (where we had based ourselves) and they deserved a day of pure fun as only the Italians can do it. It is quite expensive (20 euros for over 11s, 15 for under) but we got there early (it opens at 1000) and stayed till the end (1800) so overall I would rate it as good value. I can't say if this is always the case but this was less crowded than the Cecina one so the queues for the slides were short. Oh, and the cafe had a variety of competitively priced options so don't be too concerned about bringing a picnic. One minor quibble - the WCs were of the stand up variety.

Had a great day here with kids aged 9 and 7. Not a huge number of slides but perfect for the age of our kids. Queues were no more than 10 mins on a peak season sunday. Very clean and life guards excellent. Food inexpensive and decent including fruit and freshly made smoothies.

Don’t expect a huge park with loads of big rides, lazy river etc, it’s a small park with about 5 different rides. Aimed at kids but still enjoyable for adults.

We went today, 25th June. Cost 22 euros each plus 3 euros to park plus 11 euros for 2 sun beds and a locker. So it ain’t cheap but if you want a water park it’s the only one around other than Celina which looking at the reviews is essentially a replica.

Was busy but queues were ok, no longer than 10 mins at most on some rides. The concrete surfaces got very very hot so take some footwear for when going to the toilet or you will burn your feet.

The rides are ok, nothing too long or adventurous but it is aimed at kids and it’s still fun for adults to do the rides. Wave pool happens very hour but only lasts 5 mins.

Having been to water parks in Spain and Portugal, this one compares well. 80euro for a family of four. Good range of rides and queues not usually more than 5 mins. Plenty of umbrellas and free to use chairs. Quite clever lockers built into umbrellas for 4euro.

Food was better than average in terms of selection. Usual fast food plus fruit plates and waffles. Price on par.

Overall a good day out....we stayed from 1030 to just before closing at six.
