When it is boiling hot outside, there is no better way to cool down than with water – be it a lake, a rive, a pool, a beach or one of the best activities: a waterpark! Waterparks are excellent when you are looking for some fun in the sun with the entire family. Here are some of the greatest waterparks in the Costa del Sol.
Situated in Torre del Mar, this waterpark is one of the best options for children. To start, there is so much to do here. You can slide down the 80-meter Kamilkaze slide which goes downhill at full speed. If that sounds a bit too intense for you, you can line up one of the easier water slides. At the VRFun Virtual Reality Arcade, you can pretend you are doing everything from driving race cars to flying to swimming in the ocean without leaving dry lang. There is a separate area for very small kids, which has a minimum height requirement of 1.1 to 1.4 metres, and games and slides for adults and older children also.
