After spending most of our week in Tenerife hiking or exploring quieter areas of the island, we felt something different was needed to round off the trip, so we spent our final day in Siam Park, said to be the biggest water park in Europe.

Siam Park is located close to Playa de las Americas, just off junction 28 of the motorway, very close to another well-known water park, Aqualand. Since opening in 2008, Siam Park has taken over as Tenerife's most popular water park. At weekends and peak times of year, the park can be very busy Luckily we had picked a Tuesday - one of the quieter days as this and Friday are when most flights from Britain arrive and depart - meaning the queues weren't too busy at any of the attractions.

The park lies on 18 hectares of land and contains a huge variety of attractions. It's built on a natural slope and hence some of the rides can take advantage of the terrain. The most notorious ride is the Tower of Power, a 28 m high slide, which offers a fast, scary drop, even passing through an aquarium near the end. I tried this ride twice, and it was more than enough! Also well worth the entrance fee are the Mekong Rapids and the Jungle Snake. Overall, I think I tried most of the rides, and enjoyed them all very much.

In addition to the water rides, the park contains an artificial beach, a wave machine which generates the world's highest artificial waves, plus numerous restaurants, cafes and souvenir shops. The entrance price is 28 Euro, which we felt was good value for a whole day here. There really is something here for everyone here, and it would be a great place to bring a family.
