Siam Park

Siam Park is Europe’s biggest water park, but if you were to name it a water park, it would be an understatement! Dubbed `The Water Kingdom`, Siam Park has a Thai theme and a huge selection of water slides, bars and restaurants- something for the whole family. You can choose to swirl into the mouth of a giant dragon amongst your friends in a raft, or if you are brave enough, take the 28 metres plunge down the Tower of Power which takes you soaring through an underwater aquarium... watch out for the sharks! You can also catch the waves at the Wave Palace, which generates the world's biggest artificial waves, up to 3 metres high. If you need to take a breather, why not relax on Siam beach; or float away down the Mai Thai River? By now you must be working up an appetite! Siam Park has a range of traditional international restaurants as well as their signature Thai cuisine. If you are too busy to stop for a meal, the Traditional Thai Floating Market has plenty of snacks to satisfy your cravings before you ride the Jungle Snakes!
