Visit this family-friendly Quarteira water park to zoom down slides and experience thrill rides and water-based attractions. Float down a lazy river or soak in a steaming Jacuzzi, or—if you’re feeling brave—plummet down the park’s 105-foot (32-meter) high free-fall slide. Parrot, bird of prey, and reptile shows round out the park’s entertainment options.
For ease, prebook Aquashow Park tickets, and then jump right into the tunnel slides, wave pool, and multi-lane racer slides. Younger visitors can take advantage of the child-friendly play pools, a mini train that chugs around the site, and live shows involving animals ranging from colorful macaws to tortoises. After swooping down high-speed slides on inflatables and splashing about in the wave pool, recover on the park’s sunbeds.
