The Park of Distinctions "Aladin parc" is located in the medina of Yasmine Hammamet - the reconstruction of the classical Arab medina (urban center surrounded by a wall). Now there are shops and entertainment centers here - a shopping mall open-air.
There are four amusement parks - Carthage Land , Aqua Land , Ali Baba and Aladin parc. The main right of the biggest is Carthage Land, the rest are considered an application, but not free.
What is inside
Aladin parc can hardly be called a full-fledged amusement park, it looks more than modest, see the photo on the right, click on the photo to enlarge. There are only 3 attractions and a dozen slot machines - "not thick, but not empty". The park is located in the basement in the building opposite the entrance to Carthage Land.
About each attraction we will talk in detail at the end of the article, and now we will tell you how interesting Aladin parc is.
What is interesting about Aladin parc
Park Aladin parc stands out from other places of entertainment in the medina of Yasmine Hammamet. Even by the name, many readers have noticed that usually the word "Aladdin" is written with two letters "d", and the word "park" is correctly spelled "k", and here "Aladin parc" is one "d" and the letter "c". In fact, everything is written correctly, just in French. All parks in the medina of Yasmine Hammamet are called in English, and only Aladin parc in French.
The payment system also differs. In Carthage Land, Ali Baba and Aqua Land you have to pay for the entrance and you can use all the attractions unlimitedly. In Aladin parc, on the contrary - you can enter for free, and the ticket entitles you to take advantage of each of the three attractions once.
Slot machines work for 1 dinar coins, which we recommend to reserve in advance. Theoretically, coins can be exchanged at the checkout. Ask the cashier for the English word "coins" (sounds like "coins"). But the cashier does not always have coins, it is better to change the hotel at the currency exchange office , there are coins there almost always.
Advantage first: if you came with a very young child, who is still too early to ride on large attractions, then in Aladin parc you can ride on "horses", "elephants" and the like at no extra cost, there would be coins in your pocket.
Just like in Carthage Land, at each attraction in children, the growth is measured. If the child is below a certain height, then the attraction will not be allowed (red level), with a certain growth, a visit is possible only accompanied by an adult (yellow level).
The second advantage: in Aladin parc very low requirements for growth - from 0.8 meters (see the photo on the left). For comparison, in Carthage Land all rides from 0.95.
How to get there
If you have a rest at the resort of Yasmine Hammamet , then most hotels can be reached on foot. Focus on Google Maps. If the hotel is still far from the medina, then take a taxi. The cost of taxi trips in Tunisia is not high, the trip will cost up to 5 Tunisian dinars , it will take up to 10 minutes.
From the hotels of the resort of Hammamet (Old Hammamet), you can drive for 10-15 dinars, drive no more than 20 minutes. From the hotels of the resort of Nabeul , you can go for 20 dinars, go up to 40 minutes. If you go from the hotels resorts of Port El Kantaoui or Sousse , then the journey will take about an hour, the price is 40-50 dinars.
For vacationers in other resorts in Tunisia, we recommend only organized trips (excursions). Pay for a place in a tourist bus will be cheaper than paying for a taxi.
The ticket costs 12 dinars. This includes: one visit to each of the three attractions: Dark Ride, Mirror Maze and Fun House.
Unfortunately, you can not buy a ticket for any one attraction. If you like something, you have to buy a new full ticket.
It is more profitable to buy combined tickets, see the full list of offers in the photo on the right, click on the photo to enlarge.

Note that in the tour of the medina, there is not much sense, in Russian it is not carried out. Maybe, at the time of your visit, this defect will be corrected.
From 9 am to 7 pm.
How much time to plan
On all three attractions you can go for 20 minutes. But most likely, you will have to add time to wait in queues. In peak season, you can spend up to 30 minutes in anticipation.
Attraction Dark Ride is a combination of riding on trolleys and shooting range. During the trip you need to shoot on the figures of mummies, pirates and other characters with the help of an improvised laser pistol.
Attraction Mirror Maze is a labyrinth with mirror walls. It is highly recommended to try, this is rarely found in amusement parks in Russia.
Fun House attraction is a children's obstacle course, where the cylinders spin, you need to run through improvised stones and the like.
In addition to these three, in Aladin parc there are simple slot machines that work for 1 dinar coins. Some even do not understand how to play and what to do. Instruction is present, but only in French.
Right behind the park Aladin parc is the entrance to another amusement park Ali Baba, designed for the youngest.
