|Is it worth visiting?|
Myself and my best friend visited Aqualand while we were on holiday in Magaluf and had a fantastic time.Location
Entrance to Aqualand will set you back £17 for adults and £10.50 for children (ages 4 - 12). If you actually plan to go to this attraction before you arrive on your holiday then you can book tickets online and receive a 10% discount.
Inside there are plenty of things to amuse everyone. There are many places specially designed for children with small waterslides, castle play areas and various other bits. However, as I don't have any children, I didn't pay too much attention to this area.
This is another great ride. It is pretty much a big bowl which you jump into. It works in very much the same way as those charity boxes you can get where you stick on a penny and watch it travel round and round until it drops into the box. With this ride, you spin round and round gaining speed until you are thrown into a pool of water which is in the middle of the ride. There is a sign by the ride which states you have to be a confident swimmer; I would assume this is because after spinning round lots of times, you are slightly disorientated by the time you land in the water.
The Crazy Race slides are very similar to the Kamikaze as the slides are positioned side by side and the idea is to race the other rides to the bottom. I really enjoyed these slides as you can actually travel down them quite fast!
The Espiral slide is totally enclosed and the slide itself is spiral so you just basically go round and round before being thrown out the end.
The Congo River
The Congo River leads all the way around the outside of Aqualand and is basically a lazy river. You can collect a rubber tube from various areas around the park and sit in your rubber ring and take a relaxing ride around the park. I enjoyed the lazy river as it allows you to move around the park and suss out where things are, while relaxing and catching some sun at the same time. There are various things around the river to keep you amused such as barrels that skirt you with water as you float past.
The Black Hole
This slide was one of my favourites. It is entirely enclosed and is pretty dark inside which means you don't see much until you get towards the end of the slide. The are loads of sever twists and turns on this slide and the fact that you are in pitch black means that you can get quite disorientated while on it. I would say that this is the fastest slide in the whole of Aqualand.
In summary, I would highly recommend Aqualand to anyone visiting Magaluf. We didn't actually know that there was a water park to visit before we travelled so we were really pleased when we discovered we could go here. Initially, I thought that the entrance fee was a little on the expensive side but once we got inside and saw all the slides we could choose from, I didn't think the entrance fee was too bad. I thought that Aqualand caters really well for families as there were quite a few areas designated just for children with miniature versions of some of the adult slides. I thought the park was really well laid out, with lots of little features such as an island in the middle of the pool with a lighthouse on top of it. Aqualand is obviously very well maintained as I don't remember seeing any litter and all the slides and water areas were exceptionally clean.
If you enjoy water parks, I would definitely give this one a try!
