Fortunately, the answer has long been found – go to the water park! However, the water park is unlikely to be the only purpose of the vacation: no matter how good the slides and water rides, it will be difficult to ride them for two weeks in a row. Therefore, we chose six water parks that would be interesting on their own or could become an intermediate point in your route.
Ocean Dome (Shigaya, Japan)
This water park is not only one of the best, but also the largest in the world. It can take ten thousand people at a time, and the temperature here never drops below 30 degrees. Here you will find not just slides with steep turns, but a whole artificial world in which almost all types of outdoor recreation are created. There is a sea with a beach, and an artificial wave for surfers, and all kinds of attractions, spa complexes, pools, hydromassage, and even a real forest. Above all this luxury is a giant dome, which, in addition, moves apart in the daytime. From above, the water park resembles a structure from a parallel universe, but when you get inside, it will seem to you that you are on the very real shore of the ocean.
Wild Wadi (Dubai, UAE)
A rich and fashionable resort has the same water park in appearance and quality. Wild Wadi (translated – “mountain river”) is located between the most expensive hotels in the city, and their guests, of course, admission there is free. Unique rides are available that you will not find anywhere else in the world. For example, a slide with a feeling of free fall. First, water pushes you more than twenty meters up, and then you fall into a special tunnel, where you can accelerate to eighty kilometers per hour. There are also artificial waves for surfing, the largest in the world. It is curious that the entire water park is decorated in the style of a fairy tale about Sinbad the Sailor, which gives it, even more, color and excitement for both adults and children.
Wet & Wild (Gold Coast, Australia)
Australia’s largest water park hosts several million tourists every year. Numerous slides, pools and an interesting sector for children are not in vain cause such great interest among tourists, because the attractions belong to the famous company Warner Brothers. The most popular attraction is intriguingly called “Kamikaze.” You simply sail on a small inflatable raft, and at a certain moment a special installation starts to send artificial waves, turning your raft into a ship sinking during a storm: it is brought in, twisted and twisted with great force.
For children, as usual, a separate zone is provided. Kids can feel like real invaders of the seas because the area for kids with exciting slides is decorated in an unusual pirate style.
Tropical Islands (Berlin, Germany)
Just 70 kilometers from Berlin is the largest and most interesting water park in Europe. The building he occupies was once a factory for the production of airships. There is a huge spa complex with services for every taste: there is a Russian bath, a hammam, all kinds of saunas, a jacuzzi and hydromassage pools. In addition to steep and bewitching slides, there is also an impressive size artificial beach, as well as a small forest. Well, when tired of swimming and roller coaster, you can go to one of the many restaurants. They are here for every taste: German, Thai, Italian, Indian and other cuisines, as well as a vegetarian cafe. Fans of nightlife can stay in the water park in the evening and enjoy a music show.
Chimlong (Guangzhou, China)
The fifth-largest in the world and the first in Asia, this water park causes a wild delight among all vacationers. For children, a whole children’s city with special slides is organized here, and adults will be pleased with a wide selection of attractions for every taste. Of the unusual, you can call the hippo “Mouth of a hippopotamus” – along the river along which you can slowly drift through various obstacles in the form of a room made of ice, waterfalls and powerful waves. In addition, there is a dance floor in the water park, where artists with circus performances or musicians constantly perform.
Sunway Lagoon (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia)
This wonderful place with six tons of real ocean sand brought from the coast is not limited to one water park. It is a whole complex with restaurants, bars, shops, and an ice rink. The park itself consists of two zones: one with slow and fearless attractions, and the other for lovers of active entertainment and extreme sports. Bungalows are set in the middle of the loose beach and palm trees are planted, which form a secluded corner for lovers of a relaxing and unhurried vacation. Water sports enthusiasts will also like it because the artificial waves in the huge pool reach three meters, which makes it possible to surf without any problems.
