Sharm el Sheikh's Aqua Blu Aqua Park sits within the Aqua Blu Sharm resort complex, which allows paid entry to the park for those not staying at the hotel. Nestled on the Ras Om El Seid Plateau, this sprawling park features a huge number of water slides (44 to be exact) and nine pools, making it a popular spot for a family excursion in Sharm el Sheikh.
The slides include twisting, high-speed rides for older kids and adults in addition to the more gentle rides for little ones. To illustrate the range, slide names range from Twister, Kamikaze and Black Hole to the Family Slide and Elephant Slide, the latter of which are notably more low-key. The pools and lagoons also include three that are specifically for small children, while an on-site spa offers a chance at relaxation and pampering for the adults. In addition, the park is home to a 1,475-foot (450-meter) promenade of cafes, restaurants, bars and bazaars.
Aqua Blu is located approximately 11 miles (18 kilometers) from Sharm el Sheikh Airport, and about six miles (10 kilometers) from the famous Naama Bay. There are various types of entrance fee packages, from all-inclusive hotel stays that include lockers, food and rides, to stand-alone entrance tickets that can be booked in advance.
