As its tenth anniversary commemoration is just around the corner, and after a long history of recognition, Siam Park has made history again by pulling off an unprecedented achievement. For the fifth consecutive year, TripAdvisor has awarded them the Travellers’ Choice Award for the Best Waterpark in the World thanks to the positive feedback from visitors, demonstrating that the success of its management lies in a perfect balance of quality, innovation and excellence. In fact, this combination has put it in a dominant position: Not only is it the only park to have won this award so many times in a row, but it’s also the only one to have received it since TripAdvisor inaugurated the ‘waterparks’ category five years ago.

The Loro Parque Company, to which this water attractions theme park belongs, has highlighted the special honour that this recognition represents, granted as it is by visitors to the Park and users of the TripAdvisor travel portal based on their independent opinions founded on their experiences.

Blanca Zayas, Communications Director at TripAdvisor Spain, affirmed “Siam Park has achieved what no other theme park in the world has achieved: to position itself as the best waterpark for the fifth consecutive year in the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards, an honour that gives us a great reason for pride here in Spain. She added that “positioning itself as number one for so many years in a row is a quality seal recognised by users around the world and will undoubtedly open more doors to both national and international tourism”.

Adrenaline-pumping, fun-filled novelties

The news, received with great joy, comes in the middle of the presentation and opening of two new attractions. Patong Rapids is a new Siam Park challenge that breaks with all the moulds, surpassing the already incredible Mekong Rapids. It runs over a 235 metre course and includes an area of complete darkness. With a capacity of 1,200 people per hour, it minimises waiting time to enable Park visitors to enjoy its incredible switchback curves to the limit, and includes impressive disc floats that allow you to experience a unique feeling of speed and adrenaline. Coco Beach is a new children’s playground that will allow youngsters to experience great adventures with their families. You will be able to enjoy new and incredible sensations in the new over 1,000 m2 wave pool, suitable for the younger members of the house, simulating the famous ruins of Angkor Wat. These new attractions, along with other surprises that are yet to come, will offer visitors adrenaline and fun in equal parts, and will attract audiences of all ages, expanding an offer that its users have distinguished as the best in the world.

Commitment to the environment

Siam Park rigorously follows a totally environmentally friendly philosophy, employing the latest technological developments in every detail. Thus, the water that feeds the Park is part of a closed circuit that begins at sea, and the CO2=0 formula is applied, which means that local products are mainly used in the restaurants and cafeterias, thus minimising the carbon footprint associated with the transport of imported products. This commitment to the environment has earned Siam Park the Biosphere Park certificate from the UNESCO-linked Institute for Responsible Tourism (ITR), which accredits their responsibility towards the environment, in addition to the ISO 14000, ISO 9000 and EMAS certificates.

As summer kicks off, Siam Park is getting ready to start its long-awaited ‘Siam Nights’ – evenings of real fun under the full moon during the months of July and August. It begins next Friday, June 29th, and will then take place every Friday and Saturday from 8pm until midnight.

Siam Nights’ has proved to be a success in previous editions thanks to an attractive and very refreshing proposal that has made tens of thousands of young people and entire families enjoy, in a most unique way, the unbeatable attractions, the best ‘chill out’ rhythms provided by a DJ, a buffet on the white sand beach and the best summer atmosphere.

Under the stars, the most daring can try the spectacular experience of Singha, the fastest and most impressive roller coaster ride on the planet. With a course of more than 240 metres and 14 changes of direction, it’s a pioneering attraction, never before seen in other water parks. You also won’t want to miss the Tower of Power, which is 28 metres high and has an almost vertical slope that gives the sensation of a free fall.

In addition, there will be time for relaxation and the family on Siam Beach, the most paradisiacal beach in the Canary Islands, which has the largest artificial wave in the world; or in a slow tropical ride on the Mai Thai River, which crosses the heart of the Park and gently lifts you to a height of eight metres, where you can enjoy the most beautiful views of the Park’s waterfalls, lush gardens and a spectacular aquarium.

Through this initiative, Siam Park enriches the Islands’ tourist appeal by enhancing the complementary offer and demonstrating how tourist facilities can improve the competitiveness of a destination. Inaugurated in 2008, this ‘Water Kingdom’ has been named the best water park in the world by TripAdvisor for four consecutive years and, throughout its history, has been awarded numerous distinctions for its commitment to innovation and excellence – the hallmark of the Loro Parque Company.

One year more, the Canary Islands are making a new record as far as the numbers of the visitors are concerned, and Siam Park is following the same pattern. In 2017, the Park has registered historical numbers in attendance, breaking a new annual record with more than 1.2 million visitors. Statistics for this year show 20% growth as compared to 2016, reaching more than 7.3 million visitors who have enjoyed the water park since its opening in 2008.

In 2016, Siam Park obtained the 5th place in attendance among the top 10 water parks in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. It was also the year when the water park reached its first 1 million visitors in a year, having demonstrated a 15.6% growth in attendance as comparted to 2015.

Thus, Siam Park has one again reinforced its position as the top leisure option in the Canary Islands on a regional and international level, as this year the water park has been named Best Water Park in the World by TripAdvisor for the fourth consecutive year, as well as best water park in Europe (through obtaining the European Star Award 6 years in a row).

Looking ahead, 2018 is promising to a big year for Siam Park as the park will be celebrating its 10th anniversary with new attractions and surprises for visitors of all ages. Siam Park has taken into consideration all the suggestions received, specially from families, and it will be continuing to develop new projects to ensure that everyone can live the best experience possible in this authentic Water Kingdom.

Last weekend we received the core of the filming team of Oro, a new movie produced by Agustín Díaz Yanes, a film director of Alatriste. The narrative is a short story of Arturo Pérez-Reverte about a Spanish expedition in quest of the city of gold in the XVI century. The film’s cast includes actors José Coronado, Óscar Jaenada, Juan José Ballesta o Bárbara Lennie. After several days of intensive filming, the team wanted to spend an amazing weekend with their families, choosing Siam Park as a place for both relaxing and having fun.

The young actor Juan José Ballesta, winner of a Goya Award, and Enrique Lavigne, the most important film producer in Spain, did not hesitate to enjoy the best water park in the world with their families. They were also very friendly with the visitors that they met at Siam Park this weekend. On the way out of the park, they shared their impressions noting that their favourite attraction is Tower of Power, and that they also liked many others, like the Singha, a brand new, revolutionary water coaster that has already received multiple international recognitions, and Vulcano.

Both Ballesta and Lavigne stated they are looking forward to returning to Siam Park especially after the announced reopening of the Siam Beach and its impressive wave pool.
