Ayia Napa’s Greek Themed Park is Fit for Gods and Goddesses

Waterworld is the biggest themed waterpark in Europe, one of Cyprus’s biggest attractions, and has over 21 thrilling rides – so it was right at the top of to my to do list when we went to Ayia Napa.

The award-winning park’s theme is ancient Greek mythology so you’ll get your adrenaline rush on rides like the Fall From Icarus, Drop to Alantis and Aeolos Whirlpool. Then you can cool down in areas like the River Odyssey and Poseidon wave pool.

It’s really exciting approaching the waterpark, which is not far from the centre of Ayia Napa on the main bus route.




The Greek theme greets you at the entrance and that’s when you realise just how BIG everything is going to be!



Now….where to start?!



With a swim and a look at the Drop to Atlantis.



Before spinning down the plug hole of the Aeolos Whirlpool.



I went on that LOADS of times, in between whooshing down Apollo’s Plunge and the Serpentine Slides.



There’s something for everyone at Waterworld, from super scary Kamikaze Slides and rides like my favourite, the Quest of Heracles…



…to the more gentle Poseidon wave pool, Atlantis and Pegasus children’s pools, and Trojan Adventure, where there are fountains where you least expect them!



And surprises from above as well!

So that’s us kids sorted!

Parents will be pleased to know that Waterworld has free parking, sun loungers and umbrellas, showers and changing facilities, and you can rent lockers for the day. All staff are fully trained and first aid is available if required. There are restaurants and snack bars where you can get burgers, pizza, and fish and chips, as well as a creperia (the ham and cheese crepes are lovely!) and an ice cream parlour.

And of course once you’re there, surrounded by columns and Greek Gods, you have to get into the spirit of things with a photo opportunity.

Meet Camtaur!



Waterworld is open from 10am to 5pm in April and October, and 10am to 6pm from May to September. Entry is 19 euros for children aged 3 to 12, and 33 euros for visitors over 13. It’s well worth the money as there’s so much to do you will want to spend all day there.



We had a brilliant day at Waterworld. To the owners for letting us review their excellent park ….efharisto!
