Siam Park in Tenerife is one of the world’s best water parks. This beautiful, Thai-themed water park offers lots of visitor attractions for everyone.

With 21 areas, attractions and rides to enjoy, it’s best to book early and plan your visit in advance to ensure you make the most of this exciting destination. This guide will take you through all you need to know, from times and ticket types to themed evenings, top tips, what to take with you and how to get there. 

General information

Siam Park is widely regarded as one of the finest water parks in the world. Located in Costa Adeje in southern Tenerife, this sun-soaked water park is packed with activities and attractions to keep everyone busy all day long. 

As the name suggests, Siam Park is Thai-themed (Thailand was formerly known as Siam, until the name was changed during the first half of the twentieth century). Its attractions include adrenaline-inducing experiences like the Mekong and Patong Rapids, the Tower of Power and the Dragon with a 10 metre vertical drop.

More relaxing activities are also available, including the Mai Thai River, Floating Market and Siam Beach. There are also family-oriented attractions like the Wave Palace, the Bodhi Trail and the Lost City.

Visitors to this large theme park can try a range of activities, from the special Sawasdee area for smaller children or Jungle Snake water ride through a tropical forest to watching wildlife at Sea Lion Island or experiencing the thrilling Vulcano, which begins with a ride through the darkness and ends with a laser light show.

As well as a range of other white-knuckle rides, relaxation areas and fun activities, Siam Park has a gift shop, Thai style floating market and a selection of restaurants. 

Siam Park opening times

  • Summer opening:    10:00 to 18:00
  • Winter opening:      10:00 to 17:00 

As you might expect in a winter holiday destination like Tenerife, Siam Park is open all year long. Within the pools, the water is maintained at 24°C during every month of the year. 

Slightly shorter opening hours are in operation during the colder months than in spring and summer. Between 1st May and 31st October, the park is open between 10am and 6pm daily. From 1st November to 30th April, it opens at the same time, but closes just an hour earlier. Siam Park thus operates between 10am and 5pm during the winter season.

Sunday is the quietest day at Siam Park, though during peak months the park can be packed every day. The park tends to be much quieter in winter. If you can, the best time to arrive is before the park gates actually open. This means you can be among the first guests, experiencing as much as possible before the crowds descend.

Siam Nights

  • Selected evenings in July and August
  • 8pm to midnight for 16+ only 

During the summer season – usually in July and August – there are themed evenings at the park in addition to the usual opening times. These ‘Siam Nights’ are for over 16s only, and run between 8pm and midnight. 

These themed evenings give visitors the chance to enjoy all the park rides without queuing for too long, as well as seeing the beautiful sight of the moonlit park. The soundtrack, meanwhile, is provided by live DJs. 

The cost of entry to the themed Siam Nights is the same as the price of a day ticket. The schedule is normally announced during the present year rather than in advance,  so you can simply check the website or call the park if you are in Tenerife during July or August to see what might be going on.

Siam Park tickets

There are various ways to buy tickets for Siam Park. As well as general tickets, you can also purchase ‘twin tickets’ for both Siam Park and Loro Parque, or buy an annual pass. Some tickets allow you to enter the park via an exclusive separate entrance, and you can also add a ‘fast track’ facility to skip the queues. 

What’s included

Whichever type of ticket you buy, the admission price includes the use of sun loungers and parasols at the park as well as the life jackets and inflatable tubes you’ll need for some rides. Free WiFi is also provided throughout the entire park.

Adding the ‘fast pass’ facility to your tickets can be very worthwhile, especially during peak periods when there may be long queues for each ride. We highly recommend the following ticket options. Some of these also include entry to Tenerife’s wildlife Loro Parque, as well as bus transfers to take you directly to the park.

Types of tickets

Siam Park advance purchase ticket

Even if you’re not sure of your plans, buying your ticket in advance secures your place while ensuring you can bypass the queues. If your plans do change, it’s not a problem as you can cancel just 24 hours in advance while receiving a full refund. This is a one-day Siam park ticket that you can either print off or show on your smartphone, and allows you access via a separate dedicated entrance.

At the moment of writing the price for adults is 40 euros, while for children aged 3-11 it’s 28 euros. Ages 2 and younger do not require a ticket. There are also options to pay more and get the ticket which includes locker, towel, and food. There is even an all-inclusive option.

Siam Park and Loro Parque twin ticket

This combined ticket for Siam Park and Loro Parque allows you to visit both parks for less than the price you’d pay when buying each ticket separately. The ticket is valid for 14 days after the initial validation, giving you two weeks to visit both parks. Like the Siam Park only ticket, this is fully refundable if canceled at least 24 hours in advance, is instantly confirmed, and can also be used as a mobile ticket.

At the moment of writing the combined ticket prices are: 70 euros for adults and 49 euros for children aged 3-11. So it’s significantly cheaper than buying separate tickets to Siam Park and Loro Parque, which would cost you 80 euros for adults and 56 euros for children aged 3-11.

What to pack

There are several items not to forget when packing for a day trip to Siam Park. These include the following:

  • Water. You can buy this at the park, but as it’s important to stay hydrated in the heat, it’s best to bring enough for at least the start of the day.
  • Sun protection. Again, given Tenerife’s sunny climate this is a necessity. It can be bought at the park shop or floating market, but it’s always wise to apply some before setting off for the day. 
  • Swimsuits. An absolute must for every member of the family. 
  • Beach shoes. Flip-flops are not permitted on the rides, so you either go barefoot or with beach shoes. The park’s floating market does sell these, but it will be cheaper to bring your own. It also ensures you have the right size. Beach shoes are also ideal when walking through the park, as the floor is hard and uncomfortable to walk on. It can also get very hot. You can wear flip-flops when wandering around the park, however, taking them off and leaving in special designated places when going to the rides.
  • Towels. A beach towel is recommended for each person, which can be used to sit on as well as for drying off.

  • Cover-ups. If you’re visiting Siam Park outside the summer months, you may need some sort of cover-up to keep you or the children warm between rides. A quick-drying, zip-up hoodie, fleece, or robe is ideal. 
  • Cash. For small purchases like drinks, snacks, or souvenirs, it’s best to carry a small supply of cash. Siam Park does provide secure storage lockers for valuables, but it’s best to leave items like jewellery, watches, and electronics behind. If you don’t bring your smartphone, make sure you print a copy of your ticket to show instead, otherwise, you may not be able to gain entry.
  • GoPro strap. If you are taking a GoPro waterproof action camera to Siam Park, it’s essential to pack a compatible chest or head strap. While GoPros can be taken on rides, in the interests of safety this is only permitted if you have a secure means of fastening the camera to you. You cannot take the GoPro onto a ride without this. 
  • You may also need:
    • Swimming goggles. These are not recommended for use on faster rides but are ideal for calmer areas.
    • Kids’ life vests. Although the park provides these, kids may prefer to take their own.
    • Sun hats. To protect children’s heads from the strong sun.
    • Sunglasses. Plus a strap to keep them in place.
    • Hair ties. To ensure user safety on rides.
    • A wet-dry bag. For storing swimwear.
    • A waterproof smartphone pouch.
    • First aid kit &/ medical supplies.
    • A change of clothes.

Top Tips

When it comes to visiting any popular theme park, it’s best to know before you go. Here are some of our top insider tips for those planning a day at Siam Park.

  • Grab a Siam Park map. When you arrive at Siam Park, make sure you grab a map at the entrance. This will help you find your way around, which in turn will help you make the most of your day there. There are also map stands scattered all over the park so may also use them.
  • Rent a towel. If you do forget yours – or need another because your own gets soaked – you can rent a towel at the park for around 3 Euros.
Siam Park lockers
You can find lockers in different locations in Siam Park
  • Hire a locker. Lockers for valuables can be rented at the park, and as you can’t take items like phones, money or keys onto the rides you’re very likely to need one. There are two sizes to choose from, and which you need will depend on what you bring and how many of you can share. 
    • Small lockers. These cost around 3 Euros.
    • Large lockers. It costs about 5 Euros for a bigger locker.

You will also have to pay a 5 euro security deposit for the lockers, which will be returned after handing over the keys.

Getting to Siam Park

Visitors can travel to Siam Park by car, or a comprehensive range of bus options is available. Which suits you best will depend on where you are staying and when you can travel.

By car

If you are travelling to Siam Park from the direction of Santa Cruz in north-eastern Tenerife, take the south highway TF-1 and use exit 73 or 74.

Car parking at Siam Park

There are two car parks available: one free and another one paid. The one that is right by Siam Park’s entrance is paid. No matter if you will leave your car to the right or to the left side of the entrance. Places are limited and thus are subject to availability. The current cost is 4 Euros, but rates may be subject to change without warning.

The second car park is on the right side of Siam Park, right opposite the Siam Mall. And it’s actually free. However, it fills up very quickly, especially during high season, so do bear this in mind.

If you don’t arrive early during peak season, then you may have to find somewhere else to park. Parking at the nearby Siam Mall is an option.
