At the Tunisian resort of Yasmine Hammamet is a replica of the Arab medina - the central part of the city, protected by a wall. There is a real tourist shopping center with restaurants and cafes, souvenir shops and shops, as well as a complex of several amusement parks.
Central is the amusement park Carthage Land , secondary to it - Ali-Baba , Aladin and aqua park AquaLand, which will be discussed in detail in this review.
AquaLand small, even call it the word "water park" is difficult. It is more correct to think up another expression, for example "mini-aqua park" or something like that.
On the other hand, according to Tunisian standards, it does not look so bad. In this country with water parks "trouble", in the resorts of Southern Tunisia (resorts Zarzis , Gabes and the island of Djerba ) in general there are no water parks. We now do not consider the slides at the hotels. In North Tunisia in Sousse and the port of El Kantaoui one by one ( Aquasplash and Aqua Palace ), two more in Hammamet. It turns 4 water parks to all the resorts of the country, and AquaLand - the smallest of them.
However, there are also advantages - a low price, especially when buying a package ticket to all parks of the medina Yasmine Hammamet , a pool with waves, a good children's area, but everything in order.
How to get there
About how to get to the medina Yasmin Hammamet, we described in detail in the review " Park Carthage Land ". We also talked about where to go next to the medina and what to do.
An adult ticket costs 22 Tunisian dinars , a children's ticket costs 18 dinars. An interesting point is that the ticket to AquaLand is even more expensive than in the main park Carthage Land.
Combined ticket Carthage Land + AquaLand - 29 dinars.
And the "full" ticket Carthage Land + AquaLand + Aladin + tour of the medina + movie theater session 5D - 40 dinars.
Perhaps, it is the low cost of visiting and the opportunity to save on a complex ticket - the main advantages of AquaLand.
From 9-00 to 19-00. The aqua park AquaLand does not work all year, after all it is in the open air. Opens AquaLand on May 15 and runs until October 15. These dates can be adjusted by the administration depending on the current Tunisian weather .
How much time to plan
To ride on all slides, one hour is enough. If you come with children, and they like the children's tower, then plan a couple of hours. To go on all the attractions of all the parks of the medina Yasmine Hammamet, plan the whole day.
Hills and entertainments
In AquaLand only three towers with slides for adults. The first is "multislide", that is, four slides are combined into one to create a competitive effect. This multi-slide is quite long, look at the photo on the right, click on the photo to enlarge.
The second - a tower with the usual for water parks, winding slides, open and closed. The third one is called "Carthage Tower", there are several slides and a large vat that pours water on visitors.
In addition to slides, there is a pool with waves 60 cm high. This entertainment is exclusive in Hammamet , in the second water park "Flipper" in this resort there is no such.
In AquaLand a good children's area, in the photo on the left. Children are pleased with a large statue of an elephant, which you can climb, as well as a fountain, under the streams of which small visitors run with great pleasure. There are many mini-slides: spiral, multislide and ordinary.
Useful tips for visitors
- Between the parks AquaLand and Carthage Land there is a direct transition, it is located near the carousel. Use it, and do not need to go out into the central square of the medina.
- At the entrance to all the parks of the medina, Yasmine Hammamet is in control, which will not allow food and drinks to be carried. Exceptions are made for children's water.
- Even if you decide not to visit AquaLand, we recommend taking the swimming trunks anyway. Not far from the medina are the beaches of Hammamet, which are recognized as the best in Tunisia, do not miss the chance to try out.
