Aquapark in Sharm el-Sheikh - Albatros Aqua Blue
This water park is the largest in Sharm El Sheikh , but many will find it not the most interesting, as it has a rather weak stylization. For lovers of entourage, we recommend another water park called Cleo park , which is stylized to ancient Egypt.
It is necessary to choose - or a beautiful stylization, or a large number of slides. But there is also a positive moment, an organized trip to each of them costs, usually, 30 USD, you can safely slide into both.
In the water parks of Sharm el-Sheikh it is better to go by an organized trip, so it goes cheaper. If you go alone, then only the entrance to the hotel will cost you 30 USD, and together with the cost of a taxi you will get more expensive. This is the position of the water park, the organizers of trips pay for each incoming 80 Egyptian pounds , they have a discount of 60%.
The water park is stylized under the jungle, but to notice this stylization is difficult, the author of this article did not notice it at all, and realized this only at the exit, after reading the title. But this is the only drawback of this institution, the rest is only pluses.
Finish the topic of value, below in the photo you will find the official price list for entrance and maintenance in the water park. Children under the age of 6 go free of charge, for children from 6 to 12 years there is a tariff of half the cost, and all those who have reached the age of 12, go through an "adult" tariff.
In addition to the entry price, we recommend to make 2 USD if you want to rent a towel, and 3 USD if you want to rent a locker for storing things. Also, when renting you need to deposit a deposit of 10 USD, then it will be returned back.
Prices for drinks and food inside are quite democratic, simple water costs 1 dollar, soda about 2 dollars, Egyptian beer about 3 dollars.
We now turn to the description of the most important thing in the water park - the hills. All the slides in the Albatros Aqua Blue are grouped by the towers, the first tower you see is called "Niagra". At first sight it may seem that this name is taken from Niagara Falls, but it is not so, in English the name of the waterfall is written as "Niagara". Perhaps, they were just mistaken, but according to the boldest version, they are the crossed names of Niagara and Viagra.
Leave the name on the conscience of the creators of the park, we will move to the hills, which on this tower are three. The most interesting slide (green on the left) is designed for riding a group of people at once on a large circle.
Perhaps, it is the most popular among visitors, and if not the most popular, it is definitely considered compulsory for everyone, to ride at least once. In the photo you see only three people, but maximum, in this circle can sit six.
The two remaining slides are nothing special: ordinary open and closed meandering slides.
In addition to the slides, inside this tower you will find a store where you can buy Egyptian souvenirs , inflatable circles, glasses, masks and much more.
Before the next towers go far enough, Niagra stands apart from everyone. On the way, you can find diving merchants and a playground where you can play table tennis or volleyball and ride a variety of animals.
The prices here are purely negotiable, in the assortment there is riding on camels, donkeys or horses. The pleasure is not very big, because you will be transported along a small circle, something this process reminded us of the prison walk, which it shows in the films.
The next tower, on which the slides are already much larger, is called "Atlas". On the roller coaster, you can ride here as on circles, which are many kinds here, and on special rugs. On the mat it is more interesting, the speed develops more, but it is often difficult to control it.
Three closed slides look original, closed pipes are intertwined with each other. But, in addition to externally unusual species, there is no special interest in them. In a closed pipe, it can be frightening, all the time you are afraid that you will hit the wall with your foot in the dark, God forbid, you will get injured.
Very popular with visitors these three slides do not use. We really wanted to take a picture of the person flying out of the pipe downstairs, waited 10 minutes, but did not wait for the one who wanted to take a ride.
The next hill implies the simultaneous start of four people at once. Indeed, with the simultaneous start and ride of the race, the greatest fun is obtained. The hill is not the highest, but one of the most cheerful.
The next hillocks are raised higher, and may already seem terrible, although there is nothing very terrible in them. The first is simply a ramp down, the second is similar, but has a bend and the third is a long, sinuous hill. The general photo you can find a little higher in this article, and a lot of detailed photos in good resolution is in our photo gallery .
The next tower in the water park is called "King Kong", with the same monkey monster in the center of the exposition. In total there are three slides on this tower, including the most unusual.
Two simple slides (on the left in the photo) we will not describe, they do not have something unusual, and the hill on the right we will describe in detail, it is really very interesting.
You start in a closed pipe, gain speed in it and fly out into a large saucer, as shown in the photo below. Rolling over the saucer, you will get into the next pipe, along which you will already go to the exit.
It is very interesting and unusual, but there is an unpleasant moment due to the fact that it is not always possible to get into the inner tube, some visitors simply miss.
The last tower is called "Shrek" and is stylized under a fairytale castle from the eponymous cartoon. The photo below clearly shows a long hill on this tower, which is called "up hill flying boat", although it would be more accurate to call it "water roller coaster".
Before our eyes, half of the skaters were stuck on the upper peak, or the calculation of the designers was erroneous, or the water had not completely covered the plastic pipe at that moment, causing increased friction of the inflatable circles.
The second slide, which is called "space hole" or "space hole", is very similar to the hill with a saucer from the tower "King Kong".
You start in a closed pipe, there you accelerate and get into a similar saucer, with the only difference being that from it you fall straight down into the pool. We are silent about what exactly reminded two of these attractions to our tourists. However, this did not stop them from happily rolling down.
The third slide is designed for several people and riding on a large circle. It is, as it were, a canyon. You start on one side, and constantly climb up and roll down its walls.
As you already noticed from the photo, a large circle and a large number of people is not a prerequisite. On the hill start up and on "double" circles and even on the most usual.
Many tourists come to rest with their children, we tell them the great news, in this water park in Sharm el-Sheikh a very large children's area where you can leave the children while you try all the slides of the main towers.
In the main article, we publish only one photo, in our gallery there are much more photos of them. Children's zone of Albatros Aqua Blue, we appreciate "excellent" and count as the benefits of this amusement park.
There are two rivers on the territory of the park. The first will have to row by itself, there is a flow of its own, but it is very weak and almost no use from it. The first river is a rather dubious pleasure.
On the second you are rolled on a boat stylized as a Venetian gondola, and a gay Arab will portray an Italian. Also very dubious pleasure, and thus also paid.
The water park itself is located on the territory of the hotel "Aqua Blue Resort", which used to be called "Bora Bora - Aqua Park". You can buy a ticket to this hotel and use the water park every day for free. This, of course, has its advantages, but there are disadvantages, not everyone likes it when the territory of the hotel is constantly teeming with tourists from all over Sharm el-Sheikh.
The hotel itself is classified into 4 stars, and the prices in it exceed good hotels with 5 stars. For the difference in price that you overpay for this hotel, you can ride in the water park every day.
We wish you good time on water attractions, and read our other reviews about Egypt ( links below ).
