How many water parks can claim the distinction of having been inaugurated by royalty? Perhaps all of them are, but we are only sure about the Siam Water Park on the island of Tenerife, Spain, which was officially opened by Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn of Thailand. The Thai-themed aqua playground is also home to the world’s largest dragon statue, the largest man-made wave and the world’s largest Thai building outside Asia. Perhaps most importantly, it also is the planet’s first green water park.

With all these accolades, it is commonly recognized as one of the best water parks anywhere. The developers were very careful to be respectful of Thai culture and religion and there are no statues of Buddhas or Thai temples. What you do get are twelve rides, most of which are multi-rider and high velocity. Here are some of the most popular:

  • The Tower of Power – a vertical slide that takes riders through shark and stingray tanks
  • Mekong Rapids – A multi-rider that simulates a whitewater rafting experience
  • Kinnaree – A 660 feet slide for four riders at a time.
  • Naga Racer – Racing slide with six lanes.
  • The wave pool at Siam beach is a sure hit with the adventurous. With monster water walls 11 feet coming at you, you better be sure that you are a good swimmer.
  • There is even a surfing school where you can get surfing lessons
  • For those who could do with a lot less water and a lot more sand, Siam Beach is a tranquil stretch of shore from which to watch the hyper antics without getting drenched.

Siam Park also made it to the record books for having the highest elevation difference for its Lazy River ride. There is a fast portion,too, so it’s not quite all ‘lazy’. This part takes you under a shark tank.The developers chose to build the park on and around a hill. This way, they have managed to create a whole series of slides and attractions without the traditional unsightly support structures. Their green credentials have been earned through recycling the water to water the plants in the complex.

Siam Park is also home to the Canary Islands’ first natural gas plant. Practically every visitor who has had a Siam Park experience, from parents to kids, look forward to return visits. The park has special ‘revisit’ tickets available that mean your return trip will be even better value for your money than your first fantastic experience at Siam Park.

The middle of the year, May and June, are the best months to visit for the combination of great weather and thinner crowds.
