Slide and Splash Waterpark

The Slide and Splash Waterpark is situated near Lagoa in the Algarve, Portugal. We visited last summer when we were holidaying in the Algarve.

The park is really easily accessible and has lots of parking. It took a little while to queue up to pay for entry but once we were in there were only short queues for most of the slides. The slightly newer and bigger waterslides, like The Big Wave, which opened in 2016, had quite a long queue.

The Slide and Splash Waterpark offers a good variety of slides, depending on your level of bravery. There’s a good mix of high slides, fast slides, solo slides, couples slides and The Big Wave is a slide for up to four people.

We started on Banzai, which is a slide where you go down face first on a foam mat. It was really good fun, but the water was quite cold in contrast to our skin. It was fine when we got used to the water, but at first it was quite a shock!

We quickly tried a succession of the slides, some where you just throw yourself down them and others where you have to queue at the bottom for a doughnut before climbing up the steps to take your turn. It’s a good workout on your legs, climbing up the steps all day.

I really enjoyed racing my friends on the foam slides, although I did come out backwards. And I really loved the slide called tornado, where you eventually get sucked into what looks like a plug hole. There was quite a long queue for this one though. It was obviously popular.

The park is really reasonably priced at 27 Euros for adults and 20 Euros for kids and there’s plenty of lockers (costing 5 euros per day) and changing rooms. The on-site restaurants weren’t too expensive either. I think, all in all, a very good value day out.

We were handed a leaflet about Slide and Splash on arrival at Faro airport, which actually gave us a discounted ticket, so it’s worth looking out for leaflets when you are out and about.

Do you like waterparks? Have you been to one whilst on holiday?

      That's such a good idea. A season pass would be great for a waterpark. Yes here's hope it warms up and stays warmed up.

  1. What a fun place! Most of the water parks in CA were shut down in the early 2000s but they seem to be making a come back now! I'm sure we'll be dragged to one by our daughter once she's a little bit older!

      I think the closed in tube thing is quite common. I can understand that. You are so lucky to have some near by Tracy.
