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.

Pegasus Pool: The pool is with zero depth entry which makes it perfect for small children to play when accompanied by parents.

Had a day here this week with a family of eight including two 5 year olds, an 8 year old and a 10 year old, lots of slides but the majority are very large fast slides, which aren't suitable for young children, adults that like that sort of thing enjoyed it but could do with a few more smaller slides...

We visited from our base in Protaras, decided on a taxi €25 for 6 of us. Arrived at 9.30 and got in the queue for the pre-booked tickets as we had booked online the day before. Seemed no benefit in going through Thomson, as they didn't offer transport, as the park is on a regular bus route. At 10.00am the... More

We visited this place yesterday and overall we enjoyed it, however I felt that these improvements could be made: More space for sun beds - you are squashed in like a sardine! Food choices were limited, salad was sold out at the place I went to at around 1pm. It was a real pain having to go the lockers to... More

We took our 4 teenage boys here and they loved it. As a family of 6 it cost us €204, it's a bit pricey but worth it as you'll probably only go once on your holiday. The food choices are good and there is something for everyone and it's not over priced.

I visited the water park 2 weeks a go. Positives: 1) There are some good rides; The Fall of Icarus, Drop to Atlantis and The Quest of Heracles were amongst my favourites. 2) The queues were fairly short, and you did not have to wait for too long to get on any of the rides. 2) Easy to get to...

After a couple of weeks, we went to visit this WaterWorld Park. As stated in other comments, the prices are high. But given the amount of things to do, I think it is a fair price to pay. Adults €38 and kids €24. Make sure to have your kids passé the 120cm barrier. Then they a lot more to enjoy... More

Our family went on the Yellow Submarine and downstairs there was great views of all the fish especially when the divers swam around them, for the adults there were several heights you could jump from depending how brave your feeling, one from our group went up to the cliffs and dived into the water but it was also very safe...

No 1 in Europe?! Hmm really wanted to try when I was reading all of the feedback on the tripadvisor. Looks very old and very tired like most of the places in Cyprus - definitely needs some refreshment! My mum she has been to the Siam park in Tenerife and she said you can't compare those two places at all!... More

Way too overpriced for what it is. Just an average waterpark. Found staff moody. The park has a nice layout but some sunbeds are a bit crammed in some areas. Lazy river was lovely and we enjoyed the rides we went on. Food was nice but a bit expensive as you would expect. Overall it was a good day just... More
