Waterland water park in Thessaloniki
Waterland water park in Thessaloniki is located outside of town, near Mediterranean Cosmos shopping center. The park is not very new, but it's well kept, clean and neat and every summer it's a pleasure to many, both children and adults.
In case you've visited some big water parks in Turkey and Europe, or on some Greek islands (Crete, Corfu...) this park might disappoint you, because beside the fact that it's a bit older, it also has less content, slides and pools compared to big water parks.
Waterland opens around June 1st and it closes in September. The precise opening and closing dates depend on climate conditions, so if you're planning a visit during the transition period it's best to check if it's open by calling the park on the telephone, because the information that you can find on their website is not always 100% accurate.
Even though taking in your own food and drinks is officially prohibited, many visitors do it anyway because there's no actual control for these things. Within the park, there are restaurants and fast food venues which have the usual prices so you can have lunch and a drink or buy some water in the park itself.
Waterland's working hours change during the year, and if you come 3 hours before closing entrance is charged 9€ per person.
Entrance for adults is charged 14.5€, and for children between the ages of 4 and 14 it's charged 11€. Children under the age of 4 don't pay entrance. If you book your tickets on the official Waterland website tickets are cheaper by 1€.
When you pay for your ticket, you also get a key for a locker where you can leave your valuable items and documents.
Bring your own towels. The park has a great number of sunbeds and lots of trees so if you're not keen on swimming in pools and having fun on water slides, you can relax while sunbathing or lying in the shade.
Waterland brings special joy to children. Small and big pools, water slides and activities intended for children, pool bridges, a pirate island, a jungle, a pool with waves...
The park has open and closed water slides for children and adults, a lazy and a crazy river, but also a table tennis and a foosball table.
Inside Waterland, there is also a mini zoo.
