Considered the “Oscar” of the amusement park industry awards, it recognizes the excellence of the exceptional water park in Tenerife.

Siam Park, the water park located on the island of Tenerife, has just been honored with the prestigious Applause Award 2024, considered as “the Oscar” within the global amusement park industry. This great recognition was awarded on Sunday, March 3rd, at a ceremony held at the Venetian Resort in Las Vegas during a gala where IAAPA also presented its annual awards. This is the first time that the IAAPA Honors and the Applause Award have come together this year to celebrate excellence and innovation in the entertainment park sector.

“We are very excited that the Applause Award joins the IAAPA Honors presentation. The idea of this new event is to celebrate excellence in the global attractions industry, but also to emphasize what each of the attendees can learn from the award winners to improve their own business,” says Jakob Wahl, CEO and president of IAAPA.

The Applause Award is an international accolade given by Liseberg, a large theme park in Gothenburg, Sweden, awarded biennially to the amusement park that “has inspired the industry with its insight, originality, and strong business development through its management, operations, and creative achievements,” explains Andreas Veilstrup Andersen, president and CEO of the Liseberg Group and chairman of the Applause Award Board. The award, which began in 1980 with the recognition of Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, has recognized the best in this industry around the world every two years. A cast in which Siam Park now enters with all honors, thanks to the quality and innovation features that make the Water Kingdom the highest-rated water park on the planet. A Recognition of Excellence

This award adds to the long list of accolades for Siam Park, which in 2024 received for the ninth time the recognition as the Traveller’s Best of The Best from Trip Advisor’s customers, the largest travel portal on the planet. In addition, it has been awarded twelve times with the European Star Award for the Best Water Park in Europe and with 3 editions of the Park World Excellence Award.

Chistoph Kiessling, vice president of the Loro Parque Group, pointed out the importance of this achievement:

“For us, this award is very special because it comes from our own sector and values the enormous effort we maintain in Siam Park, to constantly innovate, with the highest quality standards, always in search of excellence.”

The vice president also wanted to highlight the value of the human team of Siam Park “that makes it possible to offer clients a perfect experience, in every sense, on each visit”.

The award, designed by the Swedish sculptor Astri Taube, consists of a bronze statue of two hands clapping, in a perfect recreation of applause for success. This award is of great relevance as it represents recognition made by the amusement park industry itself, applying the highest standards of demand in all areas of evaluation and honors a park whose management, operations, and creative achievements have inspired the industry with foresight, originality, and solid business development.

17 August, 2022

Siam Park is the absolute champion and named best water park in Europe for the tenth time in a row

4 October, 2021

Siam Park proves it every year: it is unrivalled. Once again, it has emerged as the absolute champion of water parks, having been distinguished as the best in Europe for the tenth consecutive year. The Park, located in Tenerife, has won the European Star Award, awarded by the leading publication and benchmark in the evaluation of theme parks, Kirmes & Park Revue, every year since this award has existed.

Likewise, one of Siam Park’s star attractions has also received great recognition: the spectacular Singha has won the award for the best attraction in Europe, reinforcing its leadership as a pioneering facility with an innovative water propulsion design. Already in 2015, the IAAPA had recognised it as Best New Water Attraction of the Year, as it is, more than a slide, a real water roller coaster with high-speed curves and 14 changes of direction in which to reach 6 m/s uphill and up to 18 m/s downhill, guaranteeing a real injection of adrenaline and fun.

Thus, on a regional level, it has established itself as one of the best leisure alternatives in the Canary Islands and, on an international level, it has consolidated its position as the best water park in the world with distinctions such as the Travellers’ Choice Award from TripAdvisor for seven consecutive years, the European Star Award for ten consecutive years, or the Park World Excellence Award on two occasions, among many others. In fact, Siam Park is the only water park with so many awards, always being far ahead of its competitors. Also, many of Siam Park’s attractions have received their own awards, such as Singha, Kinnaree or The Dragon.

For the selection of the winners of this edition, the jury, formed by an independent team of experts, has distinguished those parks that have stood out, in an exceptional way, for their achievements in matters such as innovation or entrepreneurship, especially valuing the prevention measures implemented for the fight against COVID-19. In this sense, Siam Park has the highest safety standards for both visitors and its staff and has intensified the cleaning protocols of all areas.

Siam Park reaches 10 million visitors since opening in 2008

15 September, 2021

This morning, Wednesday 15th September, Siam Park has reached 10 million visitors who have visited its facilities since it opened in September 2008. At a time that has been fateful for tourism due to the crisis generated by COVID-19 and after 14 months of closure, the Park, more spectacular than ever, has reached a historic figure before the end of 2021, a very positive figure that reinforces its position as a benchmark for the sector.

The arrival of the 10,000,000th customer coincided with the entrance of a family of three, a couple with a 5-year-old girl, who were welcomed to the Park with flowers and balloons and presented with a villa, bottle of champagne and all-inclusive bracelets to enjoy the Siam Park experience in all its splendour.

Among these 10 million visitors are numerous personalities, politicians, actors, footballers and other celebrities, such as Shakira, Paz Vega, Matt Damon, Steve Aoki, Courtois, Di María or Pedrito, among many others.

Thus, on a regional level, it has established itself as one of the best leisure alternatives in the Canary Islands and, on an international level, it has consolidated its position as the best water park in the world with distinctions such as the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice for seven consecutive years, the European Star Award for nine consecutive years, or the Park World Excellence Award on two occasions, among many others. In fact, Siam Park is the only water park with so many awards, always being far ahead of its competitors. Along the same lines, many of Siam Park’s attractions have received their own awards, such as Singha, Kinnaree or The Dragon.

International organisations of maximum influence in the attractions industry, such as the World Waterpark Organisation (WWA) or the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) have valued the quality of the Park and its capacity for innovation, as well as the development of knowledge in the sector’s industry.

Likewise, since its inauguration 13 years ago, the more than 10 million visitors who have enjoyed the Park endorse the excellence of its facilities, technological complexity and environmental commitment, which have been the key elements for its international positioning and the various awards it has received during this time.

Siam Park announces its long-awaited reopening at FITUR

19 May, 2021

The president of the Loro Parque Company, Wolfgang Kiessling, announced this morning, Wednesday 19th May, that Siam Park will open its doors from next Saturday, 29th May, every weekend from 10:00 to 18:00. He did so within the framework of FITUR, the prestigious international tourism fair that takes place every year in Madrid and which has resumed its celebration after the break caused by COVID-19.

The moment that millions of visitors to Siam Park have been waiting for has finally arrived: the return of the best water park in the world after 14 months of forced closure. In fact, a great welcome is expected, similar to what has already happened at Loro Parque and the Poema del Mar aquarium. Residents and tourists who are already in the archipelago have been very happy and have filled their facilities according to the limitations imposed by the current situation.

From today until 23 May, visitors will be able to visit the stand (9D02) in Hall 9, where they will find all kinds of information, new products and news. The Company, which has already arranged numerous meetings with tour operators, is thus relaunching its activity and reinforcing its position as a leading tourism group.

Siam Park, best water park in the world for the seventh year in a row

Despite having been closed for more than a year, there is still no doubt: Siam Park is the best water park in the world, and it is in Spain. This has been confirmed by the Travellers’ Choice Award, which Siam Park has received for seven consecutive years thanks to the positive evaluations of its visitors on the prestigious travel portal TripAdvisor. Siam Park is the only park to have achieved this distinction so many times in a row, and also the only park to have received this award since TripAdvisor launched the “water parks” category seven years ago.

This repeated recognition is undoubtedly the result of the constant innovation and reinvestment of the Loro Parque Company in all its projects, with which it always pursues excellence. In addition to being a reference in the TripAdvisor awards, it also enjoys international recognition thanks to the European Star Award for Best Water Park in Europe for the ninth consecutive year, or the Park World Excellence Award, which recognised it in 2019 as Best Water Park of the Year, among many others that make it the most recognised and awarded park on the planet. Singha is also the number one attraction in the world, followed by The Dragon and the Tower of Power.

In addition to its spectacular attractions, the beauty of this park is, in itself, an incomparable attraction, and nothing compares to being able to enjoy unique attractions in the world, in an unprecedented setting of lush vegetation and Thai design and decoration. Visitors will be able to experience first-hand the thrills of Tower of Power and its 28-metre-high slide as well as Singha and many other impressive state-of-the-art attractions without which a holiday in Tenerife would not be complete.

And for those seeking relaxation in an exclusive environment, Siam Park offers Siam Beach, the most paradisiacal beach with artificial waves in the Canary Islands, where the incredible waves of The Wave Palace break. Siam Park, located in Adeje, Tenerife, is a place where good weather and fun are guaranteed all year round. This makes it another must-see if you are travelling to the Canary Islands.

Loro Parque Company Supports the ‘Earth Hour’ Initiative

23 March, 2018

Loro Parque, Siam Park and Poema del Mar will turn off their exterior lights this Saturday, 24th March, from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

The Loro Parque company will turn off the lights this Saturday, 24th March, in support of the ‘Earth Hour’, an initiative by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). All three parks, Loro Parque, Siam Park and Poema del Mar, will be switching their exterior lights off between 8:30 pm and 9:30 pm in order to support the efforts of raising awareness about the climate change and its negative effect on the biodiversity, a cause with which a company has a firm commitment.

According to the WWF, this campaign goes beyond a symbolic act of turning off the lights during one hour. Over the time, it has turned into a major global movement to address a problem that affects every one of us: the climate change. Since the start of the ‘Earth Hour’ in Sydney in 2007, thousands of cities and towns have turned their lights off in solidarity with the initiative. At the same time, social networks lit up in an effort to encourage all the governments around the world to take active political measures regarding the energy issue.

The Loro Parque company maintains a strong commitment with the protection of the biodiversity and, for that reason, it implements through Loro Parque Fundación numerous environmental projects around the world. From the energy saving perspective, one of the main company initiatives was a creation of its own photovoltaic plant, which allows to reduce emitting of more than 2 000 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere every year (which is equivalent to the emission from about 800 cars).

The climate change is a complex problem and one of its most dramatic effects is the loss of biodiversity. This serves as the principal reason for the company to join to the ‘Earth Hour’ initiative and, thus, reinforce its own efforts realized on a daily basis: raising awareness about this problem and encouraging the public to support the investigation work for the preservation of the environment. In addition to turning off the lights, Loro Parque, Siam Park and Poema del Mar, through their respective social network profiles will be encouraging the public to join this initiative, in order to achieve a bigger impact in an effort the situation on our Planet.

The spectacular Singha, a pioneer water-roller coaster, with its 240-meter length, 14 changes of direction and innovative water propulsion design, has won the ‘2nd Best Attraction in Europe Award’ and Kinnaree mega-slide took the 6th place.

The Park’s Director Christoph Kiessling received the awards in person and thanked the recognition, reinforcing the work of the entire team that makes it possible for Siam Park to maintain all its quality standards at the highest level year after year. “Singha and Kinnaree are two clear examples of the success of investment in innovation and excellence, and we’ll stick to this guideline in the new water park that we are going to open on the island of Gran Canaria. Our goal is to continue growing and offering the best leisure offer”.

These prizes are the most important at European level within the entertainment industry, and the jury, made up of an independent team of experts, has distinguished those parks that have excelled exceptionally for their achievements in matters such as innovation or the enterprise.

This award is followed by the Travelers’ Choice Award, awarded by TripAdvisor this summer, in which Siam Park was awarded The Nr.1 Waterpark in the World for the fourth consecutive year.
