€25 each felt like a lot of money for what you get, though I suppose Theme Parks in the UK cost more than this.

There are a good variety of slides and a many have been modernised or upgraded since our last visit.

There are inevitably queues, so take and use lots of waterproof suncream as there is almost no shade anywhere. There are dozens of "life guards" managing the queues and the exit and entrance to the slides, so it felt safe and we felt completely relaxed for our teenage + kids to go off on their own.

All areas, including the loos, were clean and well maintained.

We spent all day there, so got our money's worth, though paid for it the next day as we were all shattered.

First let me tell you about the only one down-side. The lockers aren't that big so don't bring a shed load of valuables. Otherwise! This place is awesome! Great staff, loads to do around the park and the slides are brilliant.
Top tips:-
1- get there early (you get on the slides loads before it gets busy)
2- bring a small sun tent or parasol and grab a spot on the green close to the bushes (better shade)
3- bing a packed lunch and some cold drinks / beer in a cool box. The foods reasonably priced but not a cheap as bringing your own.
4-bring a small amount of cash for drinks and a locker. The lockers are €5 plus €10 deposit which is refundable.
5- enjoy being a big kid again

Have a blast - it's not cheep but worth the money when you consider the fun you can have and the fact that you're there for 8 hours.
Oh, and make sure you have a good sun cream with you. There isn't a whole lot of places to find shade near the slides.

Well organized, clean, and reasonably priced food and drinks. 25 Euro seemed a bit expensive for the admission. Slides were quite busy but it was the middle of peal season on a hot day. Kids had a great time.

We went to Algarve last month and did a whole day in Slide and Splash: a wonderful family day! several slides and pools for kids and major slides for adults! a great day! we didn't have a car so we asked the company who took us from the airport ( www.takemetherealgarvetransfers.com ) to drive us there and everything went smooth! we took some sandwiches to lunch and saved a few euros, as the food there is a bit expensive...
