We spend a day at the Ila Fantasia with a kid of 12 a Friday during summer holiday. We really enjoyed the site and the activities. You have lockers that you need to rent for 2€. Water is clean, you always have a minimum of one employee looking after ppl at one activity so you can leave your kids plays. Lot of to do and you can also eat there bringing your own food because they have an area under trees to protect you from the sun with tables to eat or you can buy food at one of their restaurant.

Visit this park today as part of a holiday in Barcelona and it was sooooo much fun. The pools and slides were very clean and there were no queues at all for any of the slides. There were lots of different slides and so much to do. Would definitely come back for another visit again on my next holiday here. Got an offer on the tickets on their website so it worked out not expensive at all. Great day out!

My friend and I chose this waterpark because of the myriad of ads around Barcelona. We bought tickets online because there was a discount offer, so we went two for one.
First of all... When we woke up there was a heavy rain but we still decided not to waste tickets and go ahead with water park.
On the website (and on some blogs) it was mentioned that we need to go to Universidad station for a free shuttle bus - we came on time, waited there for 2 hours but the bus never came. Probably because of the rain they thought that people won't go...

So we've decided to use plan B and went via train. We took line R from Catalunya station to Premia Del Mar. Please be aware that the journey takes about 30 min and since it is not Barcelona - you need to buy a ticket which is 3.50 euro one way, even if you have an unlimited pass.

Anyway, when you arrive at Premia Del Mar, just cross the road and wait at the bus station for a free shuttle. After 10 o'clock this shuttle bus doesn't come so often. We waited another hour to get on one. You must have your park tickets ready because otherwise you won't get on this bus for free.

Once we have arrived at the park, we realised that because of the poor weather there were barely any visitors and we had the whole park to ourselves! No queues what so ever, we did all rides a thousand times and had a lot of fun. The best rides were Tubing and all the seamless rides (wide flat ones) because they were not painful. Unfortunately, other rides were really painful because of the rough seams...

Sadly, I have to say that the park looked extremely tired. And that's the main reason why the rides were so painful - they were so old that they probably cannot mend them properly anymore . Luckily, we only paid half price and had zero queues. I think if we've paid a full price and had to wait for an hour on each ride, like some people during hot seasons, we would have been really upset.

On the way back you can take a bus to Barcelona, but it is quite late (18.30pm in Aug) so instead we went via R train again.

Overall - it was fun because we could do all rides as many times as we wanted, but the park is old, crusty and needs a lot of love. So, don't bother with this one!!

We went to this wonderful water park and lived the pools, picnic area and rides. Gorgeous atmosphere. Then we went to the toilets! Omg! Disgusting is too kind! Why, in a huge family area are the toilets smeared with God knows what and no toilet paper??? Not even a holder for ant paper!! Friendly and fun but this needs addressing

Good afternoon Lorraine E.M, we inform you that we have a cleaning department that cleans the whole park at the end of the day, included toilets, anyway we're sending this comment to the department in charge. Thank you.

They charged us 10 EUR (for me & kid) for their "free" shuttle bus, with the claim, this will be substracted from the admission price. At the entrance they found a reason not to do it (of course, with kids you can't just walk away). No reaction to a written compaint!
They charge 28 EUR for an adult admission, with not 1 really spectacular slide. They further charge you for the locker, for the deck chair, they even charge you for the cooking grate for their barbecue places ...
And there's not one public clock in the whole area, probably to be able to close it earlier ...

Good morning Daniel N, thank you for taking your time in writing this comment, I inform you that the bus is free if you come with the €28 ticket, if you come with a promotion or an offer it costs €5, we have complaint form for our clients, you can ask for them in any ticket office, of course, some of our services must be paid, like lockers and cooking grate, you can bring a cooking grate with you and use it if you don't want to pay for it.
About the schedule, we always open at 10:00 and we close at 19:00, no matter what.
Have a good day!!!.
