Siam Park


The Siam empire always has been fascinating Europeans. With its different, far eastern culture and religion it was home of several legends and myths, European conquerors found when invading the country. Today named Thailand, the kingdom's culture still has captivating elements: dragons and deities are an essential part of the life and traditional architecture can be found throughout the country. That is what the Siam Park in Tenerife, Europe's biggest water park, is focussing on.

Throughout the whole park's area buildings with authentic oriental items were created as well as sculptures corresponding to the subcultural beliefs. Designed as part of an widespread botanical area, this architecture perfectly fits together, creating a very special atmosphere, while – and that is the main aspect of the park – housing and themeing world class water slides, pools and playgrounds.

Located on a hillside, Siam Park knows how to integrate thrilling slides into the environment combining them with special and impressive temples and houses. This way, the whole park looks amazingly natural, although there are big slides waiting for the visitors to explore. Besides several ones, which are winding their way down through the lush green, one of the most eye-catching probably is "The Dragon”: This Proslide Tornado is guarded by an tremendous dragon, spanning its head right over the laying funnel baring his sharp white teeth.

Furthermore there are other slides containing funnels of different size and shape as well: Fairly new is "Kinnaree” which is combining a funnel with other elements such as an boomerang-wave and recently was awarded Europe's best water ride. On "Vulcano” guests can spin around in a dark bowl where a laser show additionally disorients the senses, whereas alternatively "The Giant” invites to a similar trip just under the open sky on two slides. Both are starting from an impressive, head-shaped building.

Another iconic building is the "Tower of Power”. This temple spans over the park's area more than 30 metres high and houses the tallest slide of the water kingdom. The trip takes brave ones 28 metres nearly vertical downwards, featuring an underwater section through an aquarium full of sharks. Even though the slide has got a transparent tube within this section, the speed may be to high to catch a glimpse of the sea dwellers, but the visitors can observe the animals from the outside. The same is possible with sea lions. These creatures are welcoming the guests right behind the entrance on their own little island and carry them into the world of water.

Even if the slides are way too wild, there are enough other chances to get in contact with the cold wet. Two big water playgrounds containing adventures for every age are waiting to get explored. For having a relaxed bath the '”Mai Thai River” invites guest onto journey on the biggest lazy river in the world. And there is still one highlight to mention: "The Wave Palace”. This enormous pool creates the biggest artificial waves in the world with a height up to three meters, so even surfing gets possible here.

But that is not all: The park operates very environmentally friendly. An own desalination and water treatment plant produces daily on the one hand 600 cubic metres of water using seawater for the operation of the attractions, while on the other hand filters the used water to irrigate the vegetation.
