Makadi Water World is the top rated aqua park in Hurghada on Trip Advisor, and it’s easy to see why: It’s awesome! In Hurghada’s hot weather what’s better to cool off in the water mega slides and roller coasters?

Makadi Water World for families and kids:

Makadi Water World is the perfect place for families and kids. There is a designated area for toddlers, another for young children, and one for adults and kids above 120 cm. We found this to be very convenient as it was much easier to ride all the slides in one area without having to go back and forth across the waterpark.

We went on a weekday so we were lucky to enjoy the park when it was not overcrowded. The queues to ride the slides were either very short or non-existent, and the slides were simply thrilling! The park opens from 10am until 5pm, and offers free water and drinks all day. The entrance ticket also includes free snacks available from 12 pm until 4 pm.

Health Tip: Bring your own food as you will only find hamburgers and hot-dogs; and keep an eye on your children because the free drinks are all the bad kind: sugar-rich soft drinks.

We spent all day there and kept entertained until it was time for closing; and even then we wanted to stay longer. The children really loved the place and dubbed the day their best day ever even when compared to LEGOLAND which they visited last year. So, if you are nearby with your kids and family, don’t miss out on Makadi Water World.
