Waterpark – Siam Park

Siam Park

Siam Park

Siam Park is a Loro Parque-owned water park in the south of Tenerife. At 18.5 hectares Siam Park features a Siamese theme, and claims to be the most spectacular water attraction in Europe. The park was opened by Her Royal Highness the Princess of Thailand Maha Chakri Sirindhorn.

Siam Park includes the Thai theme on all of its attractions, park buildings, and restaurants. The park’s 25 buildings are the largest collection of Thai-themed buildings outside Thailand.

With this video we like to give you a little overview of the different attractions of Siam Park.

  • Vulcano: a four-person slide with a laser inside which produces a flashing image of a dragon
  • The Dragon: a Slide Tornado with a light show inside the 20-meter wide funnel.
  • Wave Palace: a wave pool with an artificial white sand beach. With 3 meter high waves, its waves are the highest of any wave pool in the World. The park’s surfing school will give surfing lessons at the Wave Palace.
  • Naga Racer: a six-lane racing slide
  • The Giant: twin Slide Cannon Bowls, one moving clockwise and one moving counterclockwise
  • Tower of Power: a vertical slide, with transparent tunnels which send riders through an area with sharks and stingrays.
  • Mai Thai River: the world’s longest lazy river, which also has the highest elevation of any lazy river at 8 meters.
  • Jungle Snakes: four twisting slides which follow the park’s terrain
  • Lost City: a children’s play structure with 120 games
  • Mekong Rapids: a river rafting ride

The park is built on a hill, which permits the slides to follow the park’s terrain similar to terrain roller coasters. Hence, they lack the prominent support structure present in most water slides.

Siam Park is the world’s first green water park. The park’s water is heated to 25 °C. To conserve the island’s water, Siam Park has a desalination plant on site, which desalinates 700 cubic meters (25,000 cu ft) of sea water per day. After the water is used in the rides, the park recycles the water by using it to water the park’s plants. In addition, Siam Park has the first natural gas plant in the Canary Islands.

The park has 5 world records:

  • The statue of the world’s largest dragon.
  • Increased elevation within the lazy river (up to 8 meters ).
  • The largest man-made wave in the world (about 3 meters).
  • Highest diversity in slides.
  • The world’s largest Thai building outside Asia.
