Western Water Park Majorca - Mallorca Travel Destinations Spain
The Western Water Park Magaluf is a family-oriented destination just outside the Majorcan resort of Magaluf. It combines the conventional pleasures of a large water park with a less familiar wild-west theme - creating what could perhaps be called the 'wild wet'.
The slides may not be as big as in some of the park's competitors, but the western theme and the overall attention to detail help to set it apart and make it a must-see for families visiting this part of Majorca.
There are enough slides and pools at the Western Water Park Magaluf to keep the keenest water-baby quite happy. And since some of the rides are multi-passenger affairs, all the family can go on together. Then, while the children return to the slides, the adults can sit back in the jacuzzis or lie out on the lawns.
The park offers a variety of other shows. The Oliver Water show is a diving display, while away from the water there is a falconry display and a small animal farm, not to mention a replica Wild West town where can-can dancers and knife-throwers perform.
The list of entertainments is topped off by pony and train rides for children, plus restaurants and numerous ice-cream buying opportunities.
When you arrive at the park, you should get yourself a locker as it saves having to carry all your clothes and cameras around with you. Although be warned: zealous attendants sometimes limit the number of times you can access your belongings before they start charging you extra.
Do not expect always to waltz around at your own pace. The Western Water Park Magaluf can get very busy, especially in summer, with 40-minute waits for some rides. On a more positive note, drivers get in for free if they show a valid car-hire contract at the ticket office. And families who are thinking of going back more than once should consider buying the tickets that are valid for the entire summer.
Agencies in Palma Nova and Magaluf will offer round trips to the park and reduced entry as part of a package. Or you can usually book through your hotel.
The Western Water Park Magaluf is open all year round. It is located at Carretera Cala Figuera Sa Porrasa 12-22, telephone 971 131 203.
