Visited here last week, good day out park is clean with a good variety of slides. Beware that you cannot take your own food and drink into the park but the prices inside the park for food and drink are not over expensive. There are plenty of lifeguards here who all speak English so they take health & safety seriously... More

Fantastic day out, got round every slide in 3 1/2 hours which included a 20 minute drinks break. Advice: 1. Buy tickets prior to arriving from most travel companies in the area.

Lots of exciting rides for all ages although does suit kids over 8 as many of the better rides are for kids over 130cm tall. However still lots to do and great fun. Price seems a bit steep however you don't pay any extra for sunbeds and the food is reasonably priced.

Been coming here every time we come to Cyprus since the kids were small, they are now adults. The park has something to offer families at every stage. The drinks and food are a bit expensive as well, but this is a treat day out for us, but we wouldn't miss it. The donuts are also part of our day... More

£38 euros each admission so £120 euros for family of 4. Very expensive for a water park. Not worth money even if you get free transport to and from. Our hotel was only 10 mins away.

Went two times this August with two five year old's who were super excited and we all had a wonderful time! There aren't many lunch food options but with toddlers burger and chips is always the convenient choice.

Fantastic water park - something there for everyone. Queues very short, even in mid-August. Lazy river was great - kids spent a lot of the day there :-) Food and drink was very good, and not overly priced. If you are staying in Protaras or Ayia Napa area, I recommend this as a day visit.

Good waterpark with some fun rides for all ages. Food is better than most others that I have visited around the world. Floors can get burning hot however so bring a sock you can wear all day.
