Top 5 Water Parks in the World

If there’s one thing that summer brings, it’s fun at water parks. The good weather and the desire to disconnect make the water mixed with the fun of slipping down the slides one of the best hobbies to spend time either with friends or family. Therefore, we would like to give you a list of the top 5 water parks in the world, because no matter which place you choose to spend the summer, the important thing is to spend it with who you choose doing what you like the most.

Siam Park, Tenerife

Siam Park features a Siamese theme and claims to be the most spectacular water attraction in Europe. It is located on the island of Tenerife, belonging to the Canary Islands in Spain. One of its most famous attractions is Tower of Power, a slide in which you will go down a vertical slope of 28 meters of free fall. Adrenaline to the fullest. If you dare, and nerves allow it, you can open your eyes and enjoy for a few seconds a spectacular aquarium through which crosses the attraction. Everything, at 60 kilometers per hour.

In addition, according to the opinions of TripAdvisor has been considered the best park in the world for the 4th year in a row. Would you like to give your opinion?

Beach Park, Brazil

Fortaleza stands to be the capital of the Ceara State of Brazil and it’s famous worldwide for its bewitching beaches that are decorated by dunes and lagoons, palm trees and red cliffs. The weather is so accommodating, soothing actually and with the colorful decors. Probably that’s the reason why Beach Park in Fortaleza tends to be the must-visit destinations in Brazil.

There are plenty attractions for kids and if you need a bit more of adventure you can surf in a wave swimming pool or try out the Insano water slide. But you should know that the Insano is listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the highest water slide, its 135 ft (41 m) is the equivalent to the height of a 14-story building. With the angle and slope, the slide provides extremely rapid descents at speeds of 65 mph (105 km/h). Are you ready?

Waterbom, Bali

Head to Waterbom Bali, in Kuta, and get ready to spend a day full of fun, tumbling and splashing emotions. Take the small swimmers to Funtastic to cool off with water-cannons, jets and supervised roller coasters specially designed for the youngest of the park. Hop on a tire to slide down the artificial river next to waterfalls and tropical vegetation, go for a high-speed slide or go for the Constrictor, one of the longest water slides in the world. Dare to challenge the unexpected twists and turns of Python, throw yourself down in a huge cauldron known as the Superbowl and challenge your friends to head-to-head race for victory in the Boogie game.

The bravest will be able to slide down a slide at a dizzying speed feeling the sensation of weightlessness, as they glide through 2 sudden falls in the Race Track circuit, or reach a speed of 70 kilometers per hour (43 miles) in Smash Down, an 8-section slide with a shattering fall.

Aquaventure, Dubai

Aquaventure Waterpark is the largest waterpark in all of the Middle East and Europe. An award-winning water park, where you will be allowed to experience record-breaking water rides and slides, discover what it feels like to swim with sharks and rays at close and secure proximity, or simply unwind at the 700 meter stretch of pristine beach or the numerous reserved seating areas in the park. Aquaventure brings the best of what one can experience in a waterpark making it, without doubt, the best waterpark in Dubai.


Chimelong  Guangzhou, China

Chimelong Waterpark is the largest amusement park in China, Stretching over 60 hectares, the park contains more than 60 attractions and has a daily capacity of 50,000 visitors. This park deserves a position on the top 5 for the first boomers ride, the longest lazy river, the largest wave pool, the first Tornado ride in China, the largest children’s aqua play area and the first park-wide use of ozone water treatment to ensure the purest water quality available.
Chimelong Paradise really deserves its name and is proud to be the amusement park whose rides are the richest in China. Many rides, such as the Ten-looped roller coaster, rank as the best in Asia and second in the world, the Motorbike Launch Coaster and the Half Pipe will bring you the most exciting feelings.


Beach, surf and Pura Vida

If there is something with which we relate summer is undoubtedly the beach, the sun and the good vibes of the holidays. It is also the time for many to enjoy those full-time passions, hobbies that we can not devote all the time we would like during the year but are able to transport us to paradise every time we find time for them.

To welcome the summer we would like to make a special post for those crazy surfers (in practice or in theory), a passion that becomes a philosophy of life. Sun, waves and time to connect with the sea and with oneself. And do not think that to be a part of that you have to be a professional with the board, the best thing about surfing is to enjoy every moment, every wave that you can not catch. Remember: 90% paddle – 10% riding.

Whether you are able to take those dream tubes or if you stay with the foams near the shore, there are some destinations that are the dream for any lover of good life and adventure. Therefore, we are going to discover some of the best countries to surf (or at least the best known), but they are also an ideal destination to enjoy the summer and everything the station has to offer.

Bali

We start with the obvious. Surely if we talk about Uluwatu something comes to your mind, whether or not you are surfers. Bali is the destination par excellence for the surfers, the lovers of the party and the beach. If you already have experience in the field Uluwatu is your place, if instead, you are a novice the best are beaches like Padang Padang, Kuta or Dreamland. Of course, do not miss the philosophy of surfer life and go for a party in Uluwatu, especially Sundays in Single Fin are worth mentioning.

California

Surfing has a long history and California helped the sport get noticed through movies, music, TV shows, and the surf culture which began in the early 1900s and exploded in the 50s and 60s. Who has not dreamed of walking in a Volkswagen with the Beach Boys at full speed and the surfboard as a companion?

For beginners, the most renowned beaches are Cowell’s in Santa Cruz, San Onofre State Beach in San Clemente, Zuma Beach in Malibu or Leo Carrillo in Los Angeles. If on the other hand, your trip is for improvement matters do not miss Trestles in San Clemente, Rincon in Santa Barbara, Cardiff Reef in San Diego and of course, Mavericks in Half Moon Bay and the famous wave of epic dimensions. Also, if you want to know more about the history of surfing in the state you have an appointment with the surf museum.

Hawaii

If we talk about surfing we have to talk about Hawaii. Hawaii is considered the birthplace of water sports and has a tradition as old as its history. The Ancient Hawaiian integrated surf into their culture, making it a fundamental part of their lifestyle. They used to referred to this art as he’e nalu which means “wave sliding”. The art began before entering the mysterious ocean as the Hawaiians prayed to the gods for protection and strength to undertake the powerful mystifying ocean. You have not made it as a world-class surfer if you have not done it on the North Shore in Oahu.

Australia

Australia’s surf beaches, where first-class waves for all surfing abilities crash, are born from the Pacific Ocean in the east, the Indian Ocean in the west and the Southern Ocean in the south. Bells Beach, near Torquay, the gateway to Victoria’s Surf Coast on the Great Ocean Road. Hang out in Burleigh Heads or coast along one of the world’s longest waves at Snapper Rocks on Queensland’s Gold Coast. You’ll find a wave to yourself in Western Australia and if you are thinking about to buy a surfboard this is your place: Australian surfboard-makers have driven innovation in surfboard design and production since the 60’s. The country has launched corporate giants such as Billabong, Rip Curl, and Quiksilver.

 

Other destinations in the world top are Portugal, Morocco, Norway, Senegal, Spain or France. If you have never climbed a board do not hesitate to try it at least once in your life and whether you are a prodigy or a disaster, get involved in the culture that surrounds the sport and let yourself be carried away by the waves and the good vibrations. Go with the flow and let Cuddlynest take care of yourself to make you feel at home everywhere.

3,2,1 Action: New York

When planning a trip to New York, the first thing that comes to mind is a battery of images that we have all seen on the big screen. The city of skyscrapers has become a set of shooting in itself: “When I’m in New York, I just want to walk down the street and feel like I’m in a movie”, Ryan Adams.

Who does not remember those musical fights between the Sharks and the Jets in the streets of the Upper West Side? Who has not dreamed of having Breakfast in front of Tiffany’s and singing Moon River on a fire escape with the same glamor as Audrey Hepburn? Or even to spy on the neighbors of Greenwich Village from a Rear window, because as John Lennon said: “I regret profoundly that I was not an American and not born in Greenwich Village. It might be dying, and there might be a lot of dirt in the air you breathe, but this is where it’s happening”.

New York is a city with a soul and if there is someone who loves this city and has been able to transfer that passion through the screen, it is undoubtedly Woody Allen. Movies like Manhattan and that emotional final scene convince us that love may be fragile and fleeting, but it’s worth the risk every time. That’s New York, a city where anything can happen. A city where you learn to have faith in people.

But there is a world beyond the movies. You do not have to be a film buff to know the streets of the city. Let’s say: “Central Perk”, I bet that 90% of you know what we mean, right? Joe, Chandler, Rachel, Phoebe, Monica, and Ross spent many hours with those huge cups of coffee as we spend many hours in front of the TV with tears of laughter watching this group of Friends.

And what about the mythical Sex and the City? I’m sure you can picture yourself going into a Manhattan bar with Manolo Blahnik’s shoes and asking for one of those pink cocktails. Do not miss visiting Carry’s apartment on the Upper East Side (66 Perry Street) after a day of shopping on the Fifth Avenue.

If you are interested in the architecture, you are in the right city as well. Surely you have heard about Ted Mosby and How he met the mother of his children. His love for the Empire State Building or those wonderful moments with Robin, Marshall, and Lilly on the roof of his apartment, right above MacLaren’s pub (which is based on McGee’s pub on West 55th Street), are in everyone mind.

New York, it’s that city that never sleeps. That city which is always the center of the catastrophe, where the Armageddon begins and the one in which monsters like Godzilla reproduce. That city where everything can happen and in which everyone has a dream:

New York, New York

I want to wake up in a city, that doesn’t sleeps

And find king of the hill one top of the list

A number one

The options are endless, but we are going to give you a list of 5 things you MUST do if you are in the city of skyscrapers at least once in your life:

  1. Try the Katz’s pastrami sandwich sitting on the same table as Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal and “scream” in that peculiar way.
  2. Sing “Ta, na, na, na, na, na, GHOSBUSTERS!” At the National Library of Fifth Avenue.
  3. Play the giant piano of the FAO Schwartz toyshop emuling Tom Hanks while you become a child again.
  4. Stay on top of the Empire State Building with someone who could be the love of your life (you can always use the Tinder) …
  5. Cook Spaghetti and use a tennis racquet as a Jack Lemmon style strainer in the Apartment.

Because you can visit many cities in the world, but there are none the same in the world. As our favorite Taxi Driver Robert De Niro says: “I go to Paris, I go to London, I go to Rome, and I always say,” There’s no place like New York. It’s the most exciting city in the world now. That’s the way it is. That’s it”.

Do you still need more? Well, click here and start planning that dream trip in which you are the Star.

How well do you know Chicago? Chicago is a city that offers millions of things to do, from tours, adventure sports, shopping and other attractions. You can enjoy the city on a weekend getaway or even spend a long vacation with family or friends discovering wonderful places that will surprise you.

The first thing we recommend is to do a walking tour. There are many companies that offer this service totally free. All you have to do is sign up online and show up at the time indicated. From Cuddlynest we recommend free tours by foot, an introduction to the city, the history of Chicago and the many major tourist attractions. Once you know the basics of the city, it’s time to choose other activities more in keeping with your personality.

Chicago for adventure and nature lovers

Being on vacation in a big city does not mean you have to give up your adventurous spirit and love of nature, especially if you’re in Chicago. Do you like Kayaking? Then you should not miss the opportunity to navigate the Chicago River during the sunset.

Aren’t you a water sports person? No problem. Chicago is a cyclist’s dream, both for beginners and advanced riders. Chicago is geographically flat, enjoys hundreds of miles of bike trails, and all of Chicago’s major attractions are connected to the Chicago Lakefront Trail. There is no doubt why Chicago consistently ranks as the number one city in America to ride a bicycle. Do not think about it much and go on an adventure on wheels.

Are you passionate about the circus and new experiences? Then go to Belmont Harbor and do what you’ve always dreamed of. You do not need to be a trapeze expert, there are flight workshops for those who have always dreamed of fleeing to join the circus. It’s never too late to fulfill a dream.

If what you want is a more daring experience, what do you think of a parachute jump? Imagine the city of Chicago at your feet, the famous skyline of the city seen from a plane and the adrenaline rushing through your veins when the plane’s door opens. Are you ready to make the leap?

Chicago for art and culture lovers

Chicago is full of beautiful murals scattered throughout the city, but your best bet to detect the highest concentration of street murals is an expedition on foot through Pilsen, starting in the area around 18 and Blue Island. extending west towards the National Museum of Mexican Art. A route to get lost while admiring the beauty of street art.

You can not leave Chicago without spending a day discovering the Loop. The Loop is the financial center of the city, located in the heart of Downtown Chicago. Here are concentrated many of the skyscrapers that make the skyline of the city so recognizable as the famous Willis Tower. This is also where you can enjoy the best cultural offer in Chicago. And when you get tired of so much skyscraper, nothing better than a small picnic in the park with unbeatable views of Lake Michigan.

One of the things that Chicago stands for its the architecture. The Archicenter is a center for exhibitions related to architecture and the city, where you can find out everything related to the art of construction. In addition, you can find there a model that perfectly illustrates the urbanism of this city, a must for lovers of this field is exhibited.

Chicago for music and nightlife lovers

If there’s something we identify with Chicago, it’s Jazz. Come to the Jazz Showcase (the first jazz club in the city and the second in the States). To enter this site is to travel through time and immerse yourself in a pentagram. It is full of memories, photos and feels an atmosphere of jazz, brotherhood, and joy in the air.

If your passion is the Blues, do not miss Kingston Mines, a place to know the true neighborhood blues, the original. Sit down and taste some ribs in pure American style while enjoying the best music the city has to offer. As a curious fact, you must know that celebrities such as Mick Jagger, Bob Dylan, David Bowie, have been there too.

There is an endless list of bars and clubs to visit if you are in the city, but these two are a MUST that you should not overlook if you want to breathe the authentic taste of Jazz and Blues in its purest essence.
