Tenerife Theme Parks
Tenerife has water parks, adventure parks, historical parks, cultural parks and animal parks. There is a park to suit every age group and personality and whichever you choose you are assured of a great day out.
Most parks offer day passes which include transport from a convenient pick-up point, entrance fees and return trip. Listed on this page are a few of our favourites.
Meander round 75,000 sq. metres of tropical gardens, admiring a wide variety of plant and animal life including rare white tigers and lions. Don't miss the breathtaking 'eagle show' where various large birds of prey, including American eagles, condors and vultures, swoop down over the heads of the spectators.
This park includes an obstacle course which is great for keeping your children (about 5 years and up) occupied while you enjoy a refreshing drink in the shade.

The home of Tenerife's first permanent bungy jump, Sky Park has thrills and fun for people of all ages. You'll never forget your first bungy or free fall SCAD dive but you don't need to be a dare devil to enjoy Sky Park.
There is also a Water Luge, Children's Water Playground, Bungy Trampoline and an evening caberet. The free fall SCAD Dive is not for the faint hearted.
While archeologists and anthropologists contine to disagree about the origins of Tenerife's own pyramids, there was little doubt in the mind of world famous Norwegian explorer Thor Heyerdahl, that they were built along similar lines of the ancient constructions in Peru, Mesopotamia and Mexico.
The step-pyramids pose many questions but the park and museum do not provide direct answers. Instead you are given a fascinating look at the history of the Guanche and are left to make your own mind up whether the pyramids could simply be the after effect of long ago farmers' land clearance or perhaps an ancient and sacred place built in celebration of the summer solstice.
