A splashtastic day at Siam Park, The Water Kingdom, Tenerife

When researching attractions to visit during our cruise ship visit into Tenerife, there was one attraction that really stood out.  When a couple of friends then recommended Siam Park, the Water Kingdom and I read on Trip Advisor that it has been voted the number one attraction in the world, the decision was made and tickets booked!  Read on for our review of Siam Park, Water Kingdom, Tenerife.

Siam Park is so much more than a water park.  As one of the largest aquatic theme parks in Europe it has 14 unique water attractions including the thrilling Tower of Power, The Dragon, Mekong Rapids, an Adventure Land set in its own tropical paradise, a HUGE man-made beach with wave pool and even sea lions.

Water Kingdom Siam Park Tenerife review

As the water park is over an hours drive from the cruise ship port we decided to arrange our visit via the shore excursions department.  We could easily have hopped in a taxi and booked our tickets independently but we didn’t want to worry about flagging down a taxi, trying to negotiate a good price and risk not making it back to the ship in time for departure.

Our first impressions of the water park were a little chaotic with long lines to hire a locker.  After eventually securing our valuables however and finding a spot to use as a base, we were soon relaxing around the lazy river and racing our boys down the slides.

What we absolutely loved about the park is how it caters for all ages.  Harry and Charlie, (2 & 5) loved splashing around in the two children’s areas (5 on map below) and laughing at their Daddy when the huge bucket of water tipped onto his head!  Richards parents, in their late 60’s loved the lazy river, the white sandy beach and wave pool (4 on the map below).

I struggled a little to take photos as everywhere you turned there were people obviously in swimming costumes however here are a few photos of the many rides and facilities at the Water Kingdom by Siam Park…

I’m adding a Go-Pro to my Christmas wish list so that I can take videos like this one below for our next visit to a water park!

Top tips for visiting the Water Kingdom by Siam Park, Tenerife
– To fully appreciate all the attractions at the Water Kingdom you need a full day, or ideally a couple of days.  Our excursion only provided us with 4.5 hours at the attraction which was not quite enough for my two adventurous water babies!  Check out the discounted multi day passes here.
– Water shoes can be bought and wetsuits hired from the water park however, to save some money, pack water shoes (the ground was scorching hot) and wetsuits (if visiting out of peak season) for young kids.
– Avoid carrying any valuable belongings if you wish to avoid the locker queues.

Need to know
– P&O Cruises shore excursion ticket prices, including 1 hour 15 minute journey each way by coach, are £46 per adult and £24 per child.  Tickets are available on the gate from £29 per adult and £20 per child.

Disclosure – We received complimentary tickets via P&O Cruises in return for this honest review.  All opinions are, as always, our own.

    Number one in the world! Well it had to be done! It looks like you had an amazing time, especially from the video which was excellent. No wonder your 4.5 hours there wasn’t long enough.

    We visited when the boys were younger and it was quite stressful but I think that was because we had tiny ones with us, we had a fab day but i think were not that well prepared, I would love to visit now the boys are older, have a wonderful 2017 xx

    We love going to Water Parks and this one sounds amazing. I would never think of going to somewhere like a water park whilst on a cruise. We have never been to Tenerife but I am pretty sure we would visit here if we went #Mondayescapes x

    This looks like so much fun! I haven’t done a lazy river for years. Great tips for visiting and I think that’s a pretty good price for the shop excursion. What a shame you couldn’t stay longer #MondayEscapes

    Oh how fabulous, it sounds amazing there. I love how clear the water looks too. It’s a little while since I’ve been to Tenerife but we had a great time there and the weather was great obviously! Must get back again as a family. It’s nice to know P&O do cruises there, must have a look.

    I had no idea it had been voted the number one attraction in the world. I still remember both my boys trying the Tower of Power. What a day they had!
