Once you visit Siam Park, you'll always wish to come back to Tenerife

Siam Park is one of the top attractions in Tenerife, along with Loro Parque, the best zoo in Europe, located in Puerto de la Cruz. Actually, in 2020 Siam Park was named the best water park in the world according to Tripadvisor users for the seventh time in a row.

Especially if you are coming to Tenerife on a family holiday with the children, they will absolutely adore the day at the park, and it will probably be the best day of the entire holiday for them. 

When is the best time to go to Siam Park?

Anytime is the best time for a visit to Siam Park.

Tenerife has a subtropical climate and is one of the warmest Canary Islands during winter, so Siam Park is open all year round, with no exceptions.

The water in the pools is heated to a comfortable 24°C, so even on a cloudy day you should have no problems enjoying what the park has to offer.

At the entrance, you are greeted by the friendly sea lion family (which were brought here from Loro Parque) and then you can make your way towards the Floating Market.

If you plan to also visit Loro Park during your holiday in Tenerife, we recommend buying the Combined Ticket (Siam Park + Loro Park).

Siam Park Rides and Attractions

Or how to spend an amazing day at Siam Park

We spent a day in Siam Park in January and we were lucky to have beautiful weather, all sunshine and no clouds, no winds, plus a temperature around 23 Celsius.

If it's your first time at Siam Park and you'd like to get an idea of what it's about before your adventure on the big rides, you can go on the lazy river, also known as Mai Thai River.

A full ride lasts around 30 - 40 minutes and at a certain point you do get the choice to go on a faster route, which will lead you through a tunnel that goes underneath the shark aquarium.

After going on the Mai Thai River we went to spend some time in the sun on the sandy beach in front of the Wave Palace. This wave pool is one of the big attractions at Siam Park, with waves reaching 3 m high, which makes them the largest artificial waves in the world (which are fit for surfing also).

The mighty Tower of Power - the pride and joy of Siam Park

The Tower of Power is probably the park's most thrilling ride, with a height of 28 m and an almost vertical drop that is 76 m long and takes you through the shark aquarium - if you're brave enough to keep your eyes open. 

This ride is 100% pure adrenaline and not for the faint of heart. It's true that due to the speed it will be over in mere seconds and if you're brave enough to do it once, you will definitely want to go back again.

Other rides include The Dragon, Kinaree, The Giant, Jungle snakes, Mekong Rapids, Naga Racer and Volcano. What we loved about the rides at Siam Park is that most of them can be done together with friends and family: some with 2 people at a time and other with floats that can take 4 people at a time.

Lost City - every child's dream

Siam Park for children (toddlers and babies)

Lost City

This is an area designed especially for kids, with slides, water guns and other attractions that will keep children of all ages occupied for hours. The Lost City has also a special zone for babies, where they can enjoy the beauty of Siam Park. Parents have at their disposal beach chairs and umbrellas right in front of Lost City, so you can keep an eye on your kids while taking a moment to relax.

Sawasdee 

This is the second area in Siam Park dedicated to children, where they can enjoy riding on miniaturized versions of 4 of the most popular slides in the park, including a version of The Giant. And when the kids want to take a break, you can just come back to Lost City and enjoy the pools there.

Tips for a great experience at Siam Park

  • Get a locker

First thing when you get to the park you should rent a locker for the day where you can keep all your things like phones, money, keys and clothes.

You are not allowed to have anything on you while on the rides, so you'll have to keep your things safe in the locker.

Price for a small locker: 3 Euros

  • Take a chest strap if you plan to bring your GoPro to Siam Park

You are allowed to have a GoPro with you on rides, but only with a chest strap-on. You are not allowed to go on rides keeping the camera in your hands.

  • Say NO to Flip-flops and YES to water shoes

You are not allowed with flip-flops on slides, so water shoes are recommended instead. They'll be useful while you walk through the park between the rides as well.

If you didn't bring your own water shoes with you, you can buy them at the shops in the Floating Market.

  • Get yourself a wet suit if you feel it's a bit cold

On most days, neoprene wet suits are not necessary, because the water is heated and the temperatures outside are usually above 20 Celsius. But if you want a neoprene suit you can buy one at the park, or even rent one for the day.

Price to buy a neoprene suit at Siam Park: 25 Euros

Price to rent a neoprene suit at Siam Park: 5 Euros

  • Lunch at Siam Park park

We had lunch at The Beach Club and there were many options, like burgers, roasted chicken with potatoes, Thai noodles and curries, rack of ribs, hot dogs and desserts.

We liked best the roasted chicken and the Thai noodles and in total, with drinks, our lunch was around €10 per person, which we thought was a really good price, given the fact that we were in a water park, where you would expect prices to be above average.

Is Siam Park worth it?

YES. Definitely.

The park is great for people of all ages, even if you're not quite the most adventurous person there is. You can also chill on the sandy beach, enjoy the waves at Wave Palace or relax on the Mai Thai River. The park is beautifully organized so that the vegetation covers all the metallic structures of the slides and everything is extremely well maintained. 

Our advice would be to go first thing in the morning so that you have the time to enjoy the park at the maximum before it gets crowded, depending on the time of year you're visiting.
