The theme parks of Benidorm are often described as being the best in Europe. Fantastic for thrill-seekers and families alike. And as there's so much to do and see in just one day, you'll want to visit these amazing attractions again and again.
Myths, legends and hi-tech rides!
Just five minutes drive from Benidorm, Terra Mitica is a huge amusement park featuring a world of ancient civilisations, legends and heroes. Perfect if you're looking to bridge a holiday in the Mediterranean, with a tour of the Iberian Peninsula, Egypt, Greece, and Ancient Rome. Travel through the history of Europe and meet the characters and creatures of myths and legends, as well as enjoying the latest high tech rides.
Get up close and personal with nature at the Wildlife Park
Terra Natura is located directly next to the Terra Mitica theme park. Both just a five minute drive from Benidorm. Terra Natura is a huge exhibition really of fabulous wildlife living within four themed areas. With over 200 species of animal and 160 types of plant, you are guaranteed a great adventure from the moment you walk through the front gate. You are greeted at the entrance with all the creepy crawlies that occupied the earth prehistorically, from there you can move on to the larger areas of America, Asia and Europe where you'll find the rhinos, crocs, parrots, monkeys, lions and tigers in their natural habitat. Throughout the day there are numerous themed shows and in the Summer months there is even the possibility of taking a dip in theTerra Natura Water Park, thus breaking up your day with the animals.
Aquatic thrills and spills!
If you like waterslides, you'll love Aqualandia. You can easily spend a whole day whizzing around this theme park and braver members of the group will love the high adrenaline rides like the Kamikaze, Black Hole and Big Bang - Europe's highest chute ride. For the little ones and for those looking for an altogether calmer day relaxing in the sun, there are also plenty of lush green areas and plenty of gentler rides available.
Fun for all the Family
Animal fans will be spoilt for choice at the Mundomar Marine and Exotic Animal Park. Explore a world of parrots, flamingos, turtles, dolphins, sea lions, seals, otters, bats and penguins. The daily live shows include parrots, sea lions and the unforgettable dolphins who swim and perform alongside a professional troop of synchronised swimmers.
An exciting night of great drama
A merry outing for all ages, the Medieval Tournament sits just on the outskirts of Benidorm. The Castle in which the event is held gives you the opportunity to travel back in time 800 years and cheer on your favourite knight who, armoured and on horseback, will joust and duel for your entertainment and for that of the resident king and queen! During the tournament you will be served a medieval style feast of chicken and ribs. And afterwards you are invited to enjoy the Dungeon Disco before heading back to present day Benidorm.
An old fashioned fairground expecially for the kids
Festilandia is what we would call a traditional outdoor fairground offering many rides and attractions especially for families with young children. Festilandia is also known for its Tourist Train that runs regularly throughout the day and early evening, picking up at the Fairground on the Mediterranean Avenue and stopping at most major points throughout the town.
