Amusement Parks In Riccione

Riccione is considered as one of the Italian capital of amusement also because of the amusement and theme parks that rise in the city: Aquafan, Oltremare, Indiana Golf and Beach Village.

Aquafan is one of the most famous water parks in Italy (it is probably the most famous one). Inaugurated in 1987, it has inspired many similar parks in Italy, and in years it has offered to its visitors many new attractions. Ideal both for children and for adults, both for groups of friends and for families, Aquafan hosts many attractions and is a valid alternative for all the tourists who are spending their holiday in Riccione and wish to enjoy a different day. Very appreciated by children, Aquafan pays particular attention to the youngest visitors, who are given the possibility to swim in a pool populated by famous cartoons characters or to have fun in the Noah’s ark with four slides. At the children’s disposal there are also a pink elephant with slides coming out of its belly and the Antarctic Baby Beach, a pool watched over by a white bear. The water attractions conceived for adults are not less amusing: 90m long slides, the Surfing Hill, i.e. 6 110m long parallel slides, Extreme River, where visitors sail down the river on rafts which have a top speed of 70 km/h amusement and adrenaline are guaranteed! If you wish to relax, there are also pools with Jacuzzi and pools that recreate the movement of waves, but Aquafun has much more to offer, even out of water: also open in the evening and night, the park hosts entertainment and music shows, and is a benchmark for the night owls of Riccione.

Apart from Aquafan, in Riccione there is also another water park, the Beach Village. The main peculiarity of this park is to be directly connected to the beach. It includes a pool with sea water and four slides, other two big pools, restaurants, relax areas with comfortable loungers, bars and entertainment and everything is necessary to spend an amusing and relaxing day.

Since 2004 Riccione has hosted another attraction that is very appreciated by tourists: Oltremare. It is not a bare amusement park, but a naturalistic park that is meant to make visitors aware of environmental problems. The park hosts many animals and attractions, like Adventure Island, a playground conceived for children and inspired to Ulisse, the park mascot, Il viaggio nel tempo (time travel), which makes visitors learn something more about the birth of the universe and life on sea, sky and earth (visitors can walk in a prehistoric forest, which is made credible through the use of great visual and sound effects), Dagli oceani al mare Adriatico (from oceans to the Adriatic Sea), the section of the park dedicated to the sea, where you can admire some species that live in seas and oceans, and Delta e dintorni (delta and surroundings), dedicated to the environment of the Po Delta.

Last but not least, on the seafront of Riccione there is Indiana Golf, conceived for all those who love minigolf. If you think that this is an ordinary golf course, you are wrong: the biggest theme adventuregolf in Italy, Indiana Golf is a 7000 square metres park where you can play golf in a beautiful setting that includes waterfalls, rocks and ponds.
