“Fun day out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

Had a great day out at WaterWorld. It takes around half an hour to get there on the bus from Protaras, and costs 1 Euro each way. The bus runs every 20 mins - don't give in to the persistent taxi drivers - they will charge you at least 15 Euros for the same journey! WaterWorld is a large waterpark with a good range of thrilling rides. We visited in early April which is at the start of the season, so the park was quiet and the rides were not all open at the same time. This was fine though as were were given a leaflet stating the times each ride would be open.
The food on offer is expensive - as is usually the case at these types of attractions.
Had a great time though, and would highly recommend.

“Kid Free for a day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

So long as the kids are safe in water, the parents can almost take a day off- unless they want to play at being kids too.

“perfect day out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

When visiting Cyprus and especially the Larnaca, Ayia Napa and Protaras area make sure that you allogate one full day to spent at the water world water park. The park has received a lot of awards over the years and there is no question why. Really great time and fun for families and young ones. We go back year after year and always we had the best of times.

we had a great day at the water park, there is lots of slides and a river that you just float along, we went early and was a good move as by the afternoon it got very packed, we had been on nearly every ride without having to queue for long. bring a pair of socks or something for your feet as the floor gets very hot and don`t forget sun cream. food and drink are quite expensive inside the park.
