Buy your tickets in advance

Don’t miss out on any water slide time by purchasing your tickets online in advance. Siam Park never offers any ticket discounts or deals, so don’t bother scouring the web for the best price. Head straight to the official Siam Park website and buy your tickets there. When the park opens, you can waltz right in, instead of waiting around with everyone else.

Hop on the free bus

Siam Park, Tenerife can be a bit tricky to get to if you don’t have a car and you’re not up for a long walk. You can save yourself the taxi fare by hopping on the free Siam Park bus. There are buses running between the park and stops in Los Cristianos, Las Americas and Costa Adeje throughout the day. You can also hop on the free bus when you’re leaving the park.

Leave your food at home

The staff at Siam Park are really strict about the items you’re allowed in. They even do bag checks to make sure you’re not breaking the rules. You can bring in as much water as you like, but any food is totally forbidden and will be taken off you. There are plenty of bars, cafes and restaurants onsite serving Thai, Canarian and international food at reasonable prices. Budget a little extra cash for lunch and you’ll be fine.

Bring flip flops or water shoes

During summer, the ground in the park gets unbearably hot. And if you haven’t got a pair of flip flops or water shoes, you’re going to be spending most of your time on a lounger with your feet up. Save yourself some bad blisters or the disappointment of missing out and take suitable shoes with you.

Consider a fast pass

If you’re visiting Siam Park in July or August and want to go on all the rides, it’s worth getting a fast pass. These VIP wristbands cost just €15 and let you jump to the front of the queue once for each ride. Queues can be up to two hours long in the height of summer, so spending just a little extra can really make a difference on how your day goes.
