Opened in June 2000, the Aqua Fantasy Aquapark near Selcuk is Turkey’s top water park, accommodating up to 5,000 guests every day. The park may be best known for its Super Combo four-in-one ride, considered by many to be one of Europe’s best designed water slides. Other popular rides include the Screamer, which provides the feeling of a vertical freefall while sliding and the Xtreme slide, where guests reach speeds up to 80 kilometers per hour. Other activities include water volleyball on an artificial beach, a wave pool with 10 different kinds of waves, an adult pool with a swim up bar and Jacuzzi, and the relaxing Blue Lagoon and Lazy Adventure River. And of course, there is a kids’ pool for the little ones.
The Aqua Fantasy Aquapark is located about 15 minutes southwest of Selcuk and 20 minutes north of Kusadasi. For those wishing to stay overnight, the Aqua Fantasy Hotel is adjacent to the water park. Facilities in the park include a food court, lockers and showers. Cash cannot be used within the park; visitors must load money onto a “splash card” obtained at the entrance.
