Welcome back to Tenerife

Welcome back to Tenerife Holiday Homes and our brand new blog. It has been a beautiful week in Tenerife, with temperatures reaching 21 -22 degrees almost every day!

water-park-blogLast week we were raving about Golf Del Sur, and this week we will be ‘gushing’ about one of the  two amazing water parks that Tenerife is lucky enough to have.

Siam Park bills itself as ‘One of the most exciting water parks in Europe’ and it certainly has a fantastic selection of seriously thrilling rides!

The ‘Tower of Power’ is probably the most famous (and frightening!) It dominates the whole park, and if you’re over 1.42 metres tall and have a real head for heights, this ride is a must! It is a long climb to the top (you may pass some holidaymakers walking back who have changed their minds – don’t let that put you off!) and once there the lifeguard will tell you when it’s your turn….take a deep breath and plummet 28 metres down an almost vertical drop!!!!!

A brilliant twist at the ends sees you enter a transparent tube through the shark aquarium (!) before landing in the splash pool, hopefully with swim wear and dignity intact!

If that doesn’t leave you feeling too wobbly, take a ride on The Dragon. Up to 4 people can share a raft on this unusual ride which drops you through a tunnel and then propels you into a funnel at high speeds! Or come face to face with The Giant – a twin cyclone ride that allows up to 2 riders to experience being sucked into a huge bowl! If you are still thirsty for more try out The Jungle Snakes – four intertwined snakes that loop around the park, each one offering a different experience!

Brand new in 2015, Singha is a huge 240 metre ‘water roller coaster’ that shoots you both uphill and downhill at high speeds. You can ride on a raft that takes three at a time on an amazing winding route at speeds up to 18 metres per second!

Other thrilling rides at Siam Park include the Mekong Rapids, a fun experience for the whole family to enjoy; the Naga Racer – chose from one of 6 slides and see who gets to the splash pool first; and of course, the Lazy River. The longest Lazy River in the world, this relaxing ride takes you on a meandering journey through the park, past waterfalls and tropical fish. The perfect way to end your day at the water park.

And little ones will have plenty to do too! Sawasdee is an area especially for children, with 4 mini rides including a mini replica of The Dragon! In the Lost City children of all ages can explore a maze of towers, bridges and nets to find waterfalls, fountains and small rides and slides.

Siam Beach is the perfect place for the whole family to relax and unwind. Or try and dodge a few waves in the fantastic wave pool! There are two beach bars to choose from, offering a range of international food. Head here to refuel before hitting the rides once again!

Siam Park is a great day out for everyone, and is one of the most popular places to visit in Tenerife.  Be sure to add it onto your holiday itinerary!   If you would like to book a villa or apartment not far from the fun at Siam Park, please do not hesitate to contact us
