Faliraki Water Park
On the basis that the main arrival/departure days on the island tend to be Wednesdays and Sundays we decided to go on a Sunday in hope that it wouldn't be quite as busy as other guests had reported. We got up fairly early and went to the reception desk of our hotel and asked them to book us a taxi, they did and it was there within two minutes! The taxi ride took about 15-20 minutes and cost about 15 euros to take us straight from our hotel to the doorstep of the waterpark.As I mentioned above, the waterpark is situated in Faliraki which is the main seaside resort in Rhodes and is situated on the north eastcoast. The waterpark itself is located in the centre of the coastal street and appears to be easily accessible by taxi, car and bus. The water park run a free shuttle bus to and from Rhodes town and there is a reasonable sized carpark (free of charge) so if you have hired a car you can use that as transport.
The water park is the first to appear on the island of Rhodes and claims to be the biggest in Europe (I am not convinced about this as im sure I have been to bigger ones). From June through to August the waterpark is open from 9.30am till 7pm and from may to October it closes at 6pm.The cost of entrance is quite reasonable at 20 euros for adults (12 years and over), 15 euros for children (aged 3 - 12 years) and children under three years old are free.
You can by your tickets at the entrance of the park but by doing it through your travel rep means that you don't queue for so long in theory. We arrived at 10am and it seemed very quiet so we were able to go straight through the ticket office as there were no queues.
As we walked into the park we realised just how much of a hill it was built on! There are steps EVERYWHERE and the whole thing is built on a massive slope.
