No holiday is complete without a trip to a waterpark… So it’s only fair we give you the lowdown on Zante’s biggest slides, known as Zante Water Village situated in Sarakinado.
There are several different sections in the complex as detailed below:
Thrill Tower including the 73 meter high FREE FALL, the GIANT BODY RIDE a big route with fashinating speed and turns that cuts your breath as you land on the water. In this section there’s also the HIGH SPEED HYDROTUBE and the classic KAMIKAZE.
Family Tower with 4 Multi-Racing Slides, FAMILY RAFTING and the GIANT BLACK HOLE…
“AHHHH IS ALL YOU WILL MANAGE TO SAY WHEN YOU GET SUCKED IN BY THE BLACK HOLE. FULL OF DARKNESS, MANY CURVES & LIGHTING EFFECTS”
BoomerBowl Tower includes the innovative & advanced BOOMERANGO delivers a thrilling combination of sensations unlike any other tube ride! Described by the experts as the single most thrilling water ride in the world. High-banking turns rock you side to side before you plunge down a heart-pounding 17m drop. Powerful G-forces take over as you glide up a near-vertical wall, slowing to a stop before plummeting back down. Just when you think it’s over, you slide up and over a 6-foot (2 m) hump, feeling a weightless surge before you splash into the pool.
and also the SUPERBOWL where riders launch into the Super Bowl pinned to the wall by powerful centrifugal forces as they orbit towards the centre, continue down another flume and finally splash into the pool.
Extreme Tower plays host to the FREE FALL PLUS which is almost a vertical drop along with the HEAD-DOWN MAT RACER where you’ll find yourself sliding down on a carpet next to your mates in a race to the bottom.
There is also a LAZY RIVER that circles most of the park, so if you want to just chill out you can, and there are 2 kids areas with all sorts of jungle to explore and different obstacles to climb and get soaked by.
The waterpark is fun no matter what age you are, it has something for everyone and is well worth a little trip on your holiday. Entrance fee is €18 for adults and €14 for children for a full day, or if you want to go for the afternoon, after 14:30 is €14 for adults and €10 for children. All information can be found on their website.
