When youre on holiday, you want to find activities that the whole family can take part in and enjoy thoroughly, and theme and amusement parks of course offer fun and excitement for those of all ages. With something to suit a whole range of tastes in Majorca, family holidays which take in the islands theme parks, zoos and aquariums can be an absolute blast and will certainly keep the little ones entertained.
Looking for Something Wet And Wild?
If there is one thing that Majorca is not short of, it is water parks, and in the heat of summer what better way to cool off and enjoy the thrill of the rides? Western Park, located close to and directly west of Palma, offers one of the best experiences on the island for water-loving thrill seekers. The Kamikaze water slide, which plunges from a height of over 30 metres, is sure to take your breath away, but if you prefer to experience your thrills en famille, the 260 metre-long Mega slide lets the whole family jump in a raft together. These and a whole range of other water slides are not the only attraction of Western Park, however, as it is also based on a Wild West theme. With Wild West shows offering the chance to watch everything from shoot-outs to singing, and the spectacular Wheel of Death and Western Divers shows, a day simply isnt long enough to take in all the great attractions. Aqualand Magaluf is another of the islands water parks and this, along with the Hidropark in Alcudia, offers hours of fun and entertainment for children and adults alike during their stay in Majorca. Family holidays just wont be complete without taking in at least one of these wet and wild attractions.
From the Wild West to Wild Animals!
Whether monkeys or piranhas are your thing, youll be able to find these and many more exciting animals at the variety of wildlife parks, zoos and aquariums in Majorca. Family holidays with small children certainly wont leave you scratching your head for ideas and the Mallorca Aquarium, located in Porto Cristo and covering an area of over 2,000 square metres over two floors, on its own offers one hundred and fifteen displays of species from all over the world. Marine Land in Calvia meanwhile, will have youngsters captivated by the spectacular dolphin and sea lion shows and you can even watch the dolphins frolicking underwater from the underwater tunnel. If a safari is more up your street, then the Auto Safari Zoo on the outskirts of Sa Coma should be ideal. Whether you choose to go by car or to hop on the zoos mini train, you can experience the thrill of seeing everything from giraffes and elephants to zebras, lions, tigers and a whole host of other big cats oh, and windscreen wiper-eating monkeys too of course!
Bring Out the Competitive Spirit in a Round or Two of Mini Golf!
The fantastic thing about mini-golf is the fact that the whole family can join in and have fun. Located at Palma Nova and set in a tropical parkland with waterfalls, caves and lakes, Golf Fantasia offers no less than three 18-hole mini golf courses and the opportunity to spend a full and fun-packed day in Majorca. Family holidays in the area certainly shouldnt miss out on this wonderful attraction; but Dads, just make sure that you let the kids win every now and again!
