With more than 55 attractions—which include gravity-defying water slides, a water rollercoaster, and a 180° surf pool—it’s easy to see why Thermas dos Laranjais is Brazil’s most-visited water park. The family-friendly park has something to entertain all ages and draws huge crowds year-round.
Admission tickets to Thermas dos Laranjais offer full-day access to the park and all of its attractions. If you’ve got an appetite for adrenaline, test your courage on some of the most extreme waterslides in Brazil, learn to surf at the half-pipe, or have fun at the wave beach. Younger kids can enjoy water playgrounds and swimming areas. There are also relaxing hydrotherapy pools and a Lazy River, plus tennis courts, a beach volleyball pitch, and a basketball court.
