Inside the world’s biggest water park with epic rides, rapids and a rainforest

Picture the water park of your dreams, and we reckon that the world's biggest water park might just fit the bill!

That's because the huge resort boasts its own indoor rainforest, heaps of water slides including one the height of a four-storey building, grottoes, rapids, waterfalls, mini golf…

It's so big you can even opt for BALLOON rides inside so you can take in all of the views!

Basically, the Tropical Islands Resort in Germany has just gone straight to the top of our bucket lists.

Boasting 66,000 sq m of floor space, 10,000 of which is dedicated to its lush spa and sauna complex (with SEVEN spa areas), it's unlike any water park we've ever seen.

The slides alone are pretty enticing. There's Germany's highest slide tower at 27m (the height of a four-storey building), a power turbo slide that reaches speeds of 43mph, a 149m-long giant water slide filled with twists and turns, and even a river slide which you can ride along inner tubes.

But that's not all.

There's also a 200m-long sandy beach, a lagoon filled with water slides and whirlpools, and an olympic-sized pool.

Oh, and that's just indoors.

Outdoors you'll find even more rapids, water slides, grottoes, waterfalls and a splash area for smaller kids in the Tropical Islands AMAZONIA zone.

Need a break from the rides? Take a stroll through the world's largest indoor rainforest at the complex, which has over 50,000 plants, mini golf facilities, eye-catching features like a Balinese-inspired village, shopping zones and 13 restaurants and bars.

The whole complex is located inside a giant dome which also features 20,000 sq m of UV-transparent film on its south side for plenty of natural light. (Temperatures indoors are kept around 26C).

In fact, the resort is so big that even has its own accommodation – you can actually book rooms right by all the water rides, or if you're on a budget there are tents you can hire for an overnight stay.

Just outside, the resort also offers a wide array of holiday homes and rooms.

The dome can hold up to 6,000 people at any one time.

Starting to want to visit? It's about an hour's drive from Berlin if you are thinking of a day trip.

Adult tickets start from €42 for the day, children tickets (kids aged 6-14) from €33, while kids under five go free.
