Family Fun Theme Parks
Theme parks are always a favourite with children of all ages. One of the best theme parks in the area is Dinopark - the name tells you everything! It’s brilliant for kids that want to discover the world of dinosaurs and dig for their bones! Whether you’re travelling with youngsters or slightly older kids, you’ll find one of our local theme parks an exciting day out for your family.
Our little boy just loves Dinopark. He’d have every birthday and outing here if he could. It’s up in the mountains and is basically full of dinosaurs, some which move and make noises. There’s a sandpit where the kids can dig for dinosaur bones and a small plunge pool for the kids to cool off in summer. They also have a 3D cinema and a picnic area.
If you want to cram as much in as possible then you could do Dinopark in the morning and then the Algar Waterfalls for lunch and in the afternoon. Again we haven’t actually been to the waterfalls ourselves, but we have heard they are well worth a visit. We understand there are quite a few steps and the rocks can be slippery so make sure you wear appropriate shows. Don’t forget swimmers and towels and you can take a picnic too. To really appreciate it we understand you probably need to be a better swimmer so may not be appropriate for really little ones to go swimming.
Pola Park – Santa Pola
Distance 30 miles (Approx. 45minutes)
Pola park is a big funfair for kids. Its loads of fun and the really great thing is most, if not all of the rides are designed for the under 10’s. Open times and days vary throughout the year but in the summer month it opens at 6pm through to around 1am. We have often combined dinner in Santa Pola followed by Pola Park. A lovely evening out.
Terra Mitica – Benidorm
Distance: 55miles (Approx 1 hour 10mins drive)
This is one place we haven’t actually visited but we have heard lots of good things. We haven’t been as we have been told its better value for money if you go when the kids are older (or rather taller!!). Whilst we have heard there are some dedicated areas for little ones it’s probably better to visit with kids 9-10years+.
