Located in the resort town of Benidorm on Spain’s sun-drenched Costa Blanca, Aqualandia ranks among Europe’s biggest and most popular water parks. Debuted in 1985, the expansive park was the first of its kind in Spain. It encompasses wave pools and play areas, waterfalls and a Jacuzzi, and the highest waterslide in Europe.
Spread across 37 acres (15 hectares), the sprawling Aqualandia includes a wide array of attractions designed to appeal to visitors young and old alike. In addition to its 15 entertaining water rides, the park is also host to the Verti-Go: at 108 feet (33 meters) tall, it’s the world's highest capsule slide. For those after a calmer experience, toddler-friendly play areas, wave pools, Jacuzzis, and gentler slides provide more options for fun in the sun.
