Paphos: Aphrodite Waterpark Admission

1. Paphos: Aphrodite Waterpark Admission

Visit the Paphos Aphrodite Waterpark, the largest waterpark in the Paphos region. Cool down with this park's giant variety of slides, pools and water attractions. Grab a friend and chute down the "Gravity" tube-slide together. Speed-down the curves of the "Kamikaze" body-slide. Dare to take an adrenaline-pumping ride down the "Free Fall." This towering feet foot slide shoots you down a near vertical incline, ending in a splash that will take your breath away. Jump into the leisure pool and take a scuba diving lesson. Bounce on the giant "Wet Bubble," a huge air-filled bubble, a unique attraction that is a cross between a trampoline and sprinkler. Relax as you slowly drift down a 400m lazy river which stretches around the park. Take a dip and bounce along with the surf in the wave pool. Young children will love the playing in the kids water-play area where they can play on a pirate ship, climb up the mini-volcano, and jump on the mini-bubble. After an afternoon of exploring all the park as to offer, luxuriate with a dip in the jacuzzi. In between slides, enjoy a meal at the food court, featuring Phukhet, a new Chinese restaurant.
