We did have fun here although we had an issue that we waited in line for a ride which, according to the signs, our youngest could have gone on but on entering the ride he really couldn't and it was actually dangerous. There was no lifeguard at the start to tell us not to go on - in fact the lifeguards often seemed quite sleepy and switched off. The paint on some of the slides was really flaky and stuck in our swimsuits. The changing facilities are hugely inadequate for the volume of people - the vast majority ended up going out of the park still in the swimming gear as there was nowhere to change at the end once the rides close. You get charged extra for parking which seems a bit much given the entry price (we paid 70Euros for a family of 2 adults and 2 children under 12 entering after 2.30pm - other parks give discounts for afternoon entry). I guess we could have got a cheaper deal by booking online but it was a bit spur of the moment.

We took our 15 year old daughter and her friend to this water part during our holiday to Lake Garda and to be honest it was not worth the visit! We were staying on the west of the lake and had no hire car which meant we had to take the boat to Pescheria (which was worthwhile - the boat trips on the lake are a must)! When we got to Pescheria, we had to walk (about 5 mins) to the train station where you were able to get a FREE shuttle bus to either Gardaland, Movieland or the Caneva Water park (which was helpful). Be careful though as these buses are not really that regular and you need to watch your times getting back. However, we got to the waterpark and it was 100 euros to get in (25 euros each) and even if you are not participating you have to pay to get in!!!. So I thought it was really expensive. Because of having to get the boat etc. it was near 12 before we arrived and we had to get the 16:00 bus back to get the boat back to our resort. However, when we got in the place was clean enough (not like some reviews which I had read), there were lockers where you could keep your valuables (5e un-refundable) and you had to enter a secret code to access! Long queues at most of the popular rides so we made about 3 or 4 rides in all - so total waste of money but the girls enjoyed themselves. The food and drinks on the site were really expensive so bring a packed lunch! All in all I wouldnt really rush back to Canerva Water Park but if you have kids and want to pay 25 euros each it's up to you!!

We have been to Caneva world many, many times.
Its great fun for everyone but I do feel it is getting a bit shabby looking. Toilets not great at all and some of the rides would need updating.
There are, however, slides to cater for all age ranges from the little ones to the older ones. Slides that are exciting and lazy slides and lots of room to relax. Many small places to eat are scattered around the park and they are reasonably priced.
Everyone’s number one complaint is how busy it is. If you are going during the Italian peak season in August it will be absolutely manic. My advice is to go during the week and avoid the weekends. Ques for tickets and rides can reach up to 60 to 90 minutes. However, when I always go (avoiding weekends) ques are max 30 minutes.
I would like to imagine that this place in a few years time will have a massive overhaul of the park because they are making enough money here to make it even bigger and better.
Family fun and I would recommend it.

There is storage avilable on site and they accept cash and credit Card. 25 Euro Per Person per adult.

Place is fun but too many people the created long lines for the slides. Food is a bit expansive and not enough beds and chairs.

Rides on/in waterslides make a lot of fun.
But taken into consideration, that there are long queues at the most attraktive slides, most are worn out and expensive food of low quality, the entranceprice is to high.
