Water parks are the perfect way to spend a summer day or get a thrill on vacation. According to the World Waterpark Association, about 20.7 million people visited the top 20 international water parks in 2009. However, like any fun spot, there are those that outshine the rest and those are the places you want to spend those hard-earned vacation days
Aqualand in Corfu, Greece is an 18-acre park that is all about location, setting and resort quality service. In fact, you can have a massage in the sun or shade if you so wish. Bio tattoo artists are there to give you and your fellow adventurers a temporary tattoo. There is even an arcade. However, what you really want to do is hit the water � there is a lot of it. Little kids and happy floaters can swim in the massive shallow pool. The family area has several large slides, rivers for rafting, a wave pool and a deep pool for bigger swimmers. Then, there are the adventure rides that contrast the lush, green landscape with insane drops and twists that are only for the big kids.

It has a shark pool that you jet under in a clear tube, 20 swimming areas, several themed waterslides, rivers for rafting and even a rock climbing area. If you stay at the resort, you get free admission to the park, so take advantage.
