Rides and Attractions

WaterWorld Themed WaterPark has more than 25 rides and attractions.

Aphrodith's Baths: An adults only pool with relaxing jets and bubble benches.

Apollo's Plunge: An open flumed family slide suitable for all ages. Up to three riders twist and turn on a huge raft with a big splash into the pool below.

Aeolos Whirlpool: A body slide that will propel you along a serpentine slide until you suddenly reach the global flume which will send you spinning round and round until you land in the pool below.

Atlantis Activity Pool: On this attraction one has to battle their way across water pads and rolling logs, without falling down into the swimming pool; separate zones for adults and children.

Chariot Chase: Try this four man race and see who is the fastest down the 70 meter long multi-slide.

Danaides Waterworks: Children's Playground with various attractions, tipping buckets, geezers, water guns and games.

Drop To Atlantis: This is the only slide of its kind in the world. Experience the sound and light effects inside the 3 man bullet which sends you speeding down the slide encountering the various drops and turns before splashing in the pool below.

Minotaur's Labyrinth (The Big Wet Bubble): Consists of a large play splash pool for kids. The children have to climb their way up the wet and slippery bubble but once they reach the top they can slide right back down again.

Pegasus Pool: The pool is with zero depth entry which makes it perfect for small children to play when accompanied by parents.

Poseidon's Wave Pool: The biggest wave pool in Europe stretches over an incredible 3000 square meters. The wave is activated every hour, listen out for the siren signal.

The fall of Icarus: The world’s first Boomerango slide sends you down the steep hair-raising slide before sending you back up towards the sun in a two person bullet tube.

The Quest of Heracles: Two intertwining extreme body slides that shoot you down at high speeds as you simultaneously race exiting the snakes’ head at the bottom.

Trojan Adventure: Multi-level interactive playground area for children, featuring small slides, water pistols, and several other games.

Our fault was that we were comparing it with the water park in Dubai where we went next year. Due to the comparison we did not enjoy it but overall it is a good water park but over priced.

Visited in April so early in the season which meant the water is cold! (no criticism intended there but just be warned!). The problem with the early season visit is that the park is understaffed meaning only around half the rides are open at any one time. They rotate the opening times to allow the staff to move to the... More

Great Park, a full day's stay is best. Doesn't look great from outside. But once you are in its great.

It's good, but wait until a later time than April. Not much is open, even with having to pay less money for entry it was still disappointing, not to mention quite cold! Though I bet in later months it'll be lovely, so go then.

We are staying in Protaras and took the 102 bus to the water park for just €1.50 each. The water park is expensive at €38 each but you can a free second day (in April), although we won't visiting again. Lockers are small and cost €7.50 and you get €2 back when you return the key. We had a fun... More

Good fun for a family day out. In April you bought one day and got one free so we took advantage of the offer and went twice. Had just as much fun on the second day. Plenty of sun beds and a great sized water park so doesn't seem crowded. Food and drink at very reasonable prices.

Lovely day out. Due to it being the first day open of the season a few rides were shut as others opened and they swapped over. This was a little annoying as some we liked more than others. But all staff were lovely, food was nice and the rides were great fun so a good day out. Lockers are 7.50... More
