Have a Great Time at Bali Theme Parks

Many people who holiday at Bali enjoy the theme parks just as much as all the other aspects of this amazing island. After tearing yourself away from the lovely pool at your Bali Villa, it is time to seek the fun and games at some of the best theme parks in the world. There are many different kinds and one of the most popular is the Waterbom Park. Here’s why.

Water Bom Park has an amazing number of slides and rides and they are graded from easy and mellow to scary and dare we say it?– terrifying, especially if you’ve never been on a water slide before. That means there are rides to suit any age group from the younger kids to the older ones. There are 17 different rides so you will have lots of fun. Lazy river slide is one for couples or singles to meander down on tubes while admiring all the beautiful gardens. Nothing scary about that! There are also dining and leisure facilities to make your visit perfect. The entry fee doesn’t cover all the options. Thrill seekers will be glad to know that International safety standards are met.

Circus Water Park, Tuban, is a smaller and cheaper option to the above, which is more suitable for youngsters with plenty of non-scary slides. The dedicated kids area offers lots of fun with mini-train rides, water cannons and fountains. Wave side and speed slider are the two fastest slides that will keep the older kids happy. There are plenty of dining options, a temporary tattoo parlour and a foot reflexology spa. Lockers and towels are optional and incur an additional a fee.
