In case you're wondering why you should really visit, below are some reasons:
First off, what awaits at the waterpark?
The first thing that gets your attention here is the park's two major towers:
Tower of Poseidon
Tower of Neptune
Just in case you didn't know, Poseidon means king of the sea in Greek mythology. But here at the mega waterpark, Poseidon comprises of several rides that would absolutely amuse even the royals including:
Let me shock you for a second. This is also the world's biggest waterslide which resembles a captivating humongous sea serpent. Riders on Aquaconda are plunged into a dark, meandering tunnel and finally dropped into yet another record breaking fiberglass tube.
Well, if you've got a faint heart, then this one is not for you. To begin with, riders are asked to enter a capsule and remain patient. Even without a signal, the floor collapses from underneath and they're sped down at upto 60 km/hr.
Just how many world records can one park hold? The slide earns its mark on the global scale in that it's the only dual water slide within a waterslide. It offers a perfect opportunity for riders to see who gets to complete its endless twists and turns first. Be careful though, one wrong turn and you head straight into the belly of the Aquaconda 😉 But we promise you'll get out whole and alive.
Well, this is not your typical waterslide. It comprises of vertical drops that suddenly sends you down on a high speed that makes you forget gravity for a moment. If you think you can consur gravity, then this is your perfect ride.
If you don't think the thrills on tower of Poseidon are enough though, below is more to be explored at tower of Neptune:
If you ride on this one, I promise that it's something you'll remember in a long time. It takes you gliding into the inner tube taking you down the tower of neptune. Before you even know it, surprise! You're in an underwater lagoon swimming back to back with different types of sharks. But trust, it's totally safe.
The Leap of Faith
Taking a leap of faith has never been easy. It'll take you a great deal of courage to try out this ride which stands at 9 storeys. Wondering what to expect? Waiting on a a near vertical drop, then going down at a mindblowing speed and your final destination is an acrylic tube with dozens of cownose rays and sharks. Impressive, right?
In case you're wondering, yeah, you got that correct! The incredibly wild ride uses jets of water to move riders up and down all the way into a maze of dark tunnels. Towards the end then is a calm river that sails you away.
