One of the best things about Tenerife is the fact that there is ALWAYS something to do. You can choose to pay for an activity or find something great to do that’s free of charge depending on your tastes, of course. I’m pretty sure that there is something new to try for most people as well. Apart from the experiences which are unique to Tenerife, based on the areas I’ve driven through, you could probably eat somewhere different for every meal for the best part of a year without doubling back (disclaimer for the fact checkers: that is a truly hyperbolic guestimate, but I’m probably right.)
As agreed, we are using our guests as an excuse to try new things on the island and mi hermano Ru is no exception. Having just been to Aqualand in Faro, Ru was excited to go to another water park. We of course have the water park that is rated number one in the world on Trip Advisor here in Tenerife. A day trip to Siam Park was in order! We decided to try going in on a Friday morning. I was interested to see how much busier it would be compared to our first visit a few weeks ago and I’m sorry to confirm that there was definitely a difference. Summer is on the way and there are definitely more holiday makers on the island. As a result, we actually had to queue for the slides!
I don’t think we waited more than 10 minutes for any one ride, however, the wait was becoming longer as the day progressed and more people came into the park. Ru went and did the Tower of Power and was appropriately impressed by it. The Mekong Rapids is one of the group rides that we did in the morning before heading to the Wave Pool. Once there, we decided to call it a day for Siam Park as the queues put us off. Luckily, as Ru’s visit was for a couple of weeks, we knew we would get the opportunity to come back so took advantage of their cheap return tickets in anticipation.
Despite learning the value of a ticket with the queue jump, I still rate Siam Park and look forward to my next visit.
The Spanish is coming along despacio – un poco, un poco.
Be good or be good at it
