EUROPE is home to the largest indoor water park in the world – it has 18 swimming pools and 35 water slides.
In cold weather, people plan lots of fun-filled days, with indoor water parks being a good choice for the whole family.
Despite being the largest water park in the world, most British holidaymakers have probably never heard of Suntago: Park of Poland.
Suntago: Park of Poland is about an hour’s drive from Warsaw.
The water park covers a whopping 75,000 square meters and is divided into three different zones: Jamango, Relax Suntago and Saunaria.
There are more than 35 water slides and 18 swimming pools throughout the water park, while the indoor temperature never drops below 32°C.
The Jamango area is the only area of the water park for families with small children.
Jamango is a water jungle area with 300 palm trees and 400 sun loungers around the various pools.
There are a whopping 35 water slides in this area, including Dark Thunder, where park visitors climb onto an inflatable ring before plunging through the slide’s dizzying depths.
Other adrenaline-pumping rides include Mad Octopus, Neon Torpedo, Blue Boa, Tiger’s Race, Jungle Race and many others.
There is also a 130m long lazy river ride called Adventure River in the Jamango zone.
There are also numerous pools in the child-friendly zone, including Baby Pool Jay, designed for families with younger children.
The small pool features a crocodile slide and several dolphin sculptures that spray out water.
There is also a pool with a swim-up bar that serves a variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.
Other pools in the Jamango zone include the Wave Pool, the Bubbling Spring Pool and a hydromassage pool.
Relax Suntago is another area within the water park where only visitors aged 16 and over are allowed access.
Like Jamango, there are 400 real palm trees, all imported from either Florida, Malaysia or Costa Rica.
This area of the water park is all about relaxation and has several whirlpool seats and hydromassage loungers next to the thermal pool.
Other special features include the sulfur pool and the brine pool, which are filled with saline water.
As the name suggests, the Saunaria area houses eight saunas and steam rooms as well as two whirlpools.
In addition to the three different areas of the water park, there are also five restaurants, four pool bars and a wellness spa.
The park receives good reviews from the public with an overall score of 3.5/5 from more than 150 reviews on TripAdvisor, with many visitors praising the water park in their reviews
One person wrote: “I really love water parks and after visiting similar water parks in Germany and Switzerland I chose Suntago.”
“This water park is very large, especially with the relaxation and sauna areas, and the entrance fees are not too bad.”
A second person added: “We love Suntago, we’ve been here several times. If you want to avoid the crowds, go there on a weekday.”
And a third said: “I have nothing but good things to say about Suntago. Everything is so practical. The water is huge, but everything is so easy to find.”
Entrance tickets for adults cost PLN 165 (£32.17) for a day pass for all three zones, while children up to 120 cm pay PLN 100 (£19.50) for a day pass for Jamango.
