1. It was voted the best water park in the world

Siam Park Tenerife was voted the top Traveller's Choice from TripAdvisor a whopping 6 times. According to reviewers, Siam Park Tenerife beat out other popular parks like Universal Studios Volcano Bay and Walt Disney World's Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon.

Part of Siam Park Tenerife's appeal is its innovative Siamese-themed design. The park was opened by Maha Chakri Sirindhorn, the princess of Thailand, and features Thai architecture and structures throughout the park that highlight its rides. It's also a green water park and works to conserve and recycle the water for its rides to lessen the impact on the island.

2. Tower of Power

The Tower of Power is a spectacular water slide with a 28-metre drop that reaches 80 km/h. Near the end, you'll travel into a transparent tube in a shark tank before ending up in the pool. This thrilling ride is one of the most popular in the park and doesn't have an option to skip the queue, so be sure to visit it early to get a chance to experience it.

3. Wave Palace

The Wave Palace is a massive wave pool with an artificial white-sand beach. What sets this wave pool apart is its towering waves that reach 3.3 metres, which is higher than any other wave pool in the world. You can spend time enjoying the experience of being in the wave pool or book a surf lesson at the surf school to learn the sport in a controlled environment.

8. What to bring to the park

Since Siam Park Tenerife is a water park, you can wear your swimsuit in to avoid having to change. It's a good idea to bring sunscreen, beach shoes or socks and a change of clothes to go home.
